What are surgical removal or treatments for scars?

ANSWER

There are many options to treat deeper scars depending on your particular case. These include skin grafts, excision, dermabrasion, or laser surgery. If you've recently had surgery that's caused scars, it's best to wait at least a year before making a decision about scar treatment. Many scars fade and become less noticeable over time.
