Can I get scars on stomach removed?

    Apologies if I I’m posting in the wrong place. I have 2 nasty looking scars on my stomach from a surgery I had 4 years ago. These are keloid scars meaning they are thick, raised and very very noticeable. I shouldn’t let it bother me but it does more than I can explain. From relationships, holidays, stopped the gym, stopped swimming and all sports etc. it’s affecting my confidence in a big way.

    I tried local honey and bio oil but to no avail. I went to my GP and explained my concerns. I should point out he is very old school. He looked at the scars and said oh they look nasty then when I asked if I could do anything he told me try bio oil. When I said that didn’t work he said their your war marks own them. That was his only solution. €60 for nothing! I know I shouldn’t let them bother me but they do.

    Has anyone successfully got scars removed/ reduced? Or can this even be done? I’m not a vain person by any means but I can’t stand them.
