Thank you for visiting

I recommend that you make an appointment with a dermatologist, in order to have the area examined. He/she will be able to advise what the best option will be. If laser treatment will be effective, the dermatologist will be able to give this treatment to you. Otherwise, he/she will be able to refer you to a good plastic surgeon.

Kind regards
