Thank you for your inquiry. I would highly recommend seeing a professional and refrain from doing anything on your own. A plastic surgeon will be able to advise on proper treatment. Consult with one in your area and discuss all your options. Best of luck to you.

I don't recommend trying to improve this on your own. This may be improved with steroid injections and lasers, but may need surgical revision. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
