In brief: Yes
If "fix" means- improve.
If the scar is hypertrophic, keloid or wide-spread, surgical scar revision has a good chance of improving ot. Other more conservative options of scar management also exist but if you're asking can a scar be completely eliminated the answer, as with all scars, is no.

In brief: Depends
On how extensive the disease is.
No scar can ever been removed, but some can be improved. Your best bet is to: 1. Get the disease under control and then 2. See a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the options available in your specific case. Good luck!
