You have a combination of two issues, the depressed scar and the residual pigmentation. If the pigmentation isn't the core problem, some filler might be a first step intervention. If you aren't happy with the outcome, nothing will be lost. Formal scar revision would involve excision and replacement with a new, but longer scar, which would then go on to heal, hopefully without the depression left by the biopsy. Given the location in the center of your cheek, you will have to weigh potential benefit against this. Best wishes.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a scar revision. The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a
qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

So sorry you had this complication. Since over one year has passed, and if scarring and swelling has settled down, you should be able to undergo scar revision in the near future. Check out the link below to an article I wrote about scarring, as it may be helpful. Good Luck!
A combination of a filler such as Restylane and the V-Beam laser should be able to treat this area. Please see a specialist. Best, Dr. Green
