Stick marks.

I have been through an stomach operation when I was 5 days old.. Now the stitch marks are so deep that it pushed my skin inside permanently... So I was keen to ask that, is it possible to remove that big and long stitch mark from my stomach??

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
It can be done but to what extent cannot be said without seeing it.
The scars can be removed with the help of laser techniques.
But its not necessary that it can be removed completely.
Consult a dermatologist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
