Surgical scar revision for a forehead scar

Apply Plato's Scar Serum now to soften the scar, followed by surgical scar revision, fillers, subcision, and fractional lasers.

A scar revision may help. This can be done awake with just a local anesthetic. See a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

Anything is Possible with the RIGHT Combo.

I suggest a combination of lasers, microneedling/prp and fillers to improve the texture.  It will take a series of treatments but you will get improvement. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

The scar can be totally excised and you will have a fine line if you see a very experienced plastic or facial plastic surgeon.

Thank you for your question and photograph.  Unfortunately you can no fully remove any scar,  only replace one for a better overall appearance.  You can have a scar revision thin the scar into a fine line so see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.
