Seek consultation: Depending on the number, location and size of the scars, you may be able to reduce the noticeability of them by reconstructive surgery. Scarring is a permanent condition, but by combining multiple lines into one or two often really helps them be not so noticed. Seek consult with plastic/cosmetic surgeon to see if that could help you.

No: Scars are what happens when healing occurs.Occasionally they may be revised then you would have to heal again and have new scars.
