Can a second scar revision surgery be effective. (photo)

I have a large scar on my stomach from surgery as an infant. I'm 32 years old now. Last year I had revision surgery to try to lessen the appearance. He said that he detached the scar from the abdominal wall which would let it appear flatter.. It's stil incredibly noticeable. I'm wondering if there's anything else that could be done

this can be revised but I find that doing fat removal and the scar at the same time gives a better result as the contour is much more improved.  Best, Dr. Emer.
