In brief: Yes!

In brief: Yes as last resort

There are many non-surgical options you should first consider prior to resorting to surgery.
First and foremost is prevention of future acne attacks.

In brief: Options exist

Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon or dematologist to evaluate your personal options.
This may include lasers, chemical peels, dermabrasion or prescription skin care. There are many options and you need a regimen tailored to your specific situation and expected results.

In brief: Acne scars

One important factor is prevent new scars-get your acne under control.
Find a dermatologist to tackle that with you. Most treatment to improve the appearance of acne scars use special technology to remodel the skin. The device I use to treat acne scars is called ematrix--see for info: http://www.Smacboca.Com/e-matrix-sublative-rejuvenation.Html other options include fractional lasers or subscision.
