Scar?: If you mean for the scar, then yes. A plastic surgeon can revise your scar, sometimes if it isn't too bad, laser or steroid injections will improve it.

If you have: A scar from surgery to fix the fracture, then this can possibly be improved with a scar revision procedure.

Scar revision: Good morning! if you mean improvement of an unsightly scar after a fracture, a board certified plastic surgeon can most certainly ascertain whether a scar revision would be beneficial. Sadly, this is usually not covered by insurance. I hope this helps.
