TRy Vit E: Might try vitamin E on scar. Puncture a vitamin E gel cap, squeeze it out and apply to scar daily. It may help.

Scar revision: Scars on the face can be very cosmetically disfiguring. You might want to see a plastic surgeon and see if a scar revision would help.

Suture scars: Can be revised by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon or ENT who does plastics. Scars can also be modified with chemical peel, dermal fillers, etc by dermatologist.
