No: Ask your dermatologist about dermabrasion...It can help. May take several treatments.

Not necessarily: Scar revision might be required but in some cases, scars like what you describe can be improved with either laser resurfacing or dermabrasion of the scar and surrounding nasal skin.

Best to be seen in person by a boarded term or plastic in your city. So to offer options to correction.
