Scars go through a maturation process of several months during which time they usually improve considerably.
Appearance of scars depend on the technique used, the scars a person forms (this is inherited) and time.
Judicious use of Steroid injection, pressure therapy can help during maturation process. We like to wait 12 months before (surgical) scar revision can be planned.
A visit to a Plastic Surgeon can tell what you can realistically expect from a revision.

I am sorry but this scar looks too severe to be removed from Cortisone injections. It would take lasers and possibly a scar revision surgery to improve this scar. Please consult an expert in scar treatments. Best, Dr. Green
