Hello, thank you for the picture and question. Even though it is a relatively small scar, it is visible due to its color as well as the orientation of the scar. One option may be to do nothing as your dermatologist recommended. A second option would be to excise the scar and reorient it in the natural nasolabial crease to hide it. However, that is fairly invasive and risks a fresh scar that would be longer than the scar you have now. Another option would be to have an experienced permanent tattoo aesthetician blend the color so that it is better camouflaged. Hope that helps, have a blessed day!
