Hypertrophic scarring

Generally, I would anticipate scar hypertrophy to have developed at an earlier stage in your healing process than one year. Howeer, you should followup with your plastic surgeon to rule out incipient hypertrophy. Usually, the symptoms would include redness, spreading or raised scars which can be treated with silicone sheeting, gel or injection.
