Surgical Scars

Traumatic scars can often present themselves as keloids (raised, smooth, hard scar tissue that has grown over an injured area), hypertrophic (similar to keloids but not as raised on the skin), or depressed areas with or without associated erythema (redness). Both surgical and traumatic scars can be treated to reduce their appearance. (Keloid scaring may not be able to be treated.)

Additional Names for Surgical Scars
