Late Hypertrophic Scarring

12 Jun

According to this study what I had thought to be keloid scarring along the line of the flap insertion and on the underside of the Twins is actually late hypertrophic scarring.

Hypertrophic scars are really a lesser growth of scar tissue but the same general type as keloid scarring. Both are made up of extra keratin and an overgrowth of corded scar tissue.

There is a more in-depth article I wrote back in Sept. 2009 here.
