In brief: Yes

A bad scar can be excised and may improve the cosmetic appearance.
There will be a fine line there even in the best circumstances. Some people get hypertrophic scars called keloids and may benefit from steroid injection.

In brief: Scar Revision

They can be removed but will be replaced with another scar. Of course if this is done properly, the new scar can be much better than the old one.

In brief: No

Scars can be moved, changed, improved, worsened, injected, but they cannot be removed.
