I have a terrible scar on my arm after the workers' compensation doctor performed surgery. Can I get any additional compensation for my scar?

Scarring and disfigurement is also compensable, but only if the scarring is sustained to the head, neck, hands or arms.  Section 287.190 states that the Division or Commission may allow an additional sum of compensation for disfigurement as it may deem just, up to a maximum of 40 weeks of compensation.
