Hypertrophic scars vs keloids
Thanks for the great question and the photos. So the difference between hypertrophic scars and keloids are that hypertrophic scars stay within the previous incision while keloids may expand beyond where your incisions were. In my opinion, if you're 4 months after surgery and have red, raised scars, you need to go back and see your surgeon for some steroid injections. It may take a few treatments before the scars and less raised and red, but steroids are definitely able to help. Best of luck!
