this would improve with z plasty followed by laser and filler like bellafill.  Please see an expert for treatment options  Best, Dr. Emer.

Marco.  If your scar is over one year old, then scar revision is a reasonable option. Better photos or physical exam would help decide which procedure is best for you. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
