I Have a Large Horizontal Scar on my Stomach Above my Belly Button. What Kind of Surgery Could Help? (photo)

I was born with a tumor on my liver and through exploratory surgery, I have been left with this awful scar and want to get rid of it. What kind of surgery should I look into/what would be the price?

  2. Layered surgical closure of the wound
