In brief: Reconstructive surg

Best to consult a reconstructive surgeon to determine the best modalities for treatment.
Some may be non-surgical, or you may need special surgical techniques to modify, camoflage, or rearrange your scars. Scar management may require steroid injections, carboxytherapy, microneedling, or other techniques. One approach is not necessarily better than another to obtain a good result.
