Keloid scar: You may benefit from steroid intralesional injection. Massage, silicone get and laser therapy may also be helpful. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to find out more.

Scar revisions: In order to comment, a photo or exam is needed to determine where the scar is and see if plastic surgery is even feasible. You should see a local plastic surgeon or dermatologist to review your concerns.
