Chest Scar Since Birth, Best Way to Flatten Out? (photo)

Hello Doctors, After a surgery at birth (25 yrs ago) I have had this scar on my chest in between my breasts (closer to my left breast). I have had several Fraxel laser treatments which removed discoloration, but now need advice on which treatments to use on flattening the surface of the scar. Would a dermal filler (i.e. Juvederm) do this? Any opinions would be welcome- I am getting married in 6 months and would like to be worry-free about my v-neck gown! Can send more pictures if needed!

Best treatments for old chest scars

This scar has textural changes and contour changes.  The first line of treatments in my office would be:


  1. Selective IIT 
  2. Pulsed Dye Scar Laser
  3. Fractional CO2 for resurfacing texture (later)
