In brief: Improve not remove
Genrally speaking old scars can be improved but not necessarily removed using a variety of approaches, some non-surgical and others surgical.
The choice will depend on you in consultation with a physician and may require multiple sessions over a prolonged period. Meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss those options.

In brief: No
Scars cannot be removed, but they can be revised.
You should see a plastic surgeon if it bothers you.
