I have a scar from a belly piercing . It got infected and some skin fell off can this be grafted? It's been a good few years so skin has healed now.- Ap
It would be best to excise and revise the scar you have. This will give you a much better result. The procedure can easily be performed under local anesthesia

Without pictures and/or an actual examination. it's almost impossible to give you a useful answer to this question. I would look for a cosmetic/plastic surgeon in your area and schedule an actual consultation. If you would like online opinions from other surgeons, several good JPEG photos will be required.
