Doc what do I do with these scars?

Some scars may be associated with a deformity as shown in the picture above. These scars have resulted from tissue loss of part of the nose and nostril. The body has made an attempt to heal the wounds by forming scar tissue which has resulted in a deformity. In treating these scars one must make an attempt to correct the deformity try to get the nose back to its normal state. Concomitantly one must think how the scar can be treated as well. Providing new tissue for the nose reconstruction will improve the quality of the scar tissue as well as some  of these scars will have to be removed and replaced with normal tissue using the principles of plastic and cosmetic surgery.
