The scars are in my arm and they are raised. I was less than a year old when it happened. I know that I can't completely remove them (unless there is a way) but are there procedures that can make them look inconspicuous. I'm Asian in case it matters. Thank you.

Burn scars and arm
Unless there is a functional issue, I do not think that many would treat this. Sometimes serial excisions can be performed to remove parts of the scar. Some would consider tissue expansion but that will leave balloons on your arm for several months to expand the tissue. Best to be evaluated in person.
