What can a doctor do about my skin being stretched? (photo)

I had a surgery to remove a tissue expander that was in my right torso area. After the surgery the doctor stitched up my torso and said it would feel tight for awhile and then this happened. This is about 5-6 months after the surgery. Ehat hapoened was the skin around the scar stretched and i have a vain that you can see and it's disgusting and bothers me.

Stretch marks and scars on the torso: Plato's Scar Serum and Fractional laser

I would use a combination of fractional lasers, Melarase PM, and Plato's Scar Serum to retexturize your scar and improve the atrophic dermis.
