Scar revisions can always be attempted
Visible Scar Concern
It sounds as though you may have hypertrophic scarring which is complication related to scarring more common in some skin types/tones. I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon to examine you in person and discuss scar treatments available.
All the best
I am sorry to hear about your poor scars. This is a risk with all surgery as healing is very individual and I warn all of my patients about it. If you did not have infection or other problem as the wound was healing then scar revision is probably going to produce a similar scar. It sounds like you have hypertrophic scars but it is hard to be sure without good images.Silicon gel or patches can help to mature or flatten the scar and sometimes steroid injections. You are also early in scar maturation and they can take 12 months to look their best.See and discuss with your PS
