scar across my nose
i have a 3cm scar down my nose. i had 11 stitches put in by a plastic surgeon. after getting the stitches out i have used scaraway silicon sheets for 6.5 weeks now. the outer edges were slightly raised and bumpy but the silicon sheets have helped to flatten the edges. the inside or middle of the scar is sunken or depressed. I believe the medical term is atrophic. how can i treat the atrophic area? will using a derma roller help?

the scar is also discolored in the middle - how can i treat that?

any tips would be appreciated.

Hi, my name is Dr. Obeng. Let me start by saying I'm a board certified plastic surgeon- with years of experience in wound care and scar revisions. The best way to give advice is to be able to look at the scar itself. Please, feel free to email a pic to and I can give you a direct response that's tailored to your situation as to whether a topic ointment or actual surgical measures would benefit you best.

I look forward to answering your questions.

Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.
