I had breast revision surgery last November. And found out I was pregnant this March. I'm 32w pregnant now. My scar was healing well after the surgery but as pregnancy progress my scar gotten darker and swelling a bit. No pain or anything . Is it something to do with pregnancy hormone

Yes the hormones of pregnancy can darken your scar. Laser or light that targets red could improve the color.
