What would be the best surgical procedure for a large facial scar?
Given the size of your scar, that it is flat, and widened the best initial treatment would be a surgical excision. The goal of this would be to replaced your wide scar with a thin scar. Depending on how much give your skin has, it may also mean using certain surgical techniques that help to break up the straight line of the scar. Once that is done there would likely be other treatments post operatively. This may include lasers or dermabrasion although you do need to be careful with your skin type, possibly injections, topical ointments, and appropriate post operative care. The goal would be to make your highly noticeable scar much less noticeable.
I would recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon.
I hope this helps and good luck.
