I've Had a Hypertrophic Scar Removed by Surgery, but Bruising is Still Bright Pink After 4 Weeks?

Hi, after a breast biopsy, I ended up with a tiny hypertrophic scar. It didn't look good so my doctor tried a few things before cutting it out. The incision itself looks good, flat and pale, but my concern is that there is still a very bright red bruising near the incision and it's been already 4 weeks. I worry that this will be permanent? I'm not sure anymore if it's a real bruising or if it is new blood vessels formed? If so, do they stay there forever? Thanks
