Scar Improvement can take many different approaches

While almost any scar can be improved, your results will depend on a number of factors.  Limit your sun exposure to the area, and consult with a physician who offers a number of different possible treatments.  Lasers, topical treatments, and surgical revision are all possibilities.  The cost would be determined at the time of consultation.  Good luck.

Surgical scar revision

Start by applying Plato's Scar Serum; followed by surgical scar revision to make your scar less noticeable; including the stitch marks.
