These scars are red, raised and sometimes itchy. Confined to the border of the original surgery or trauma. These scars develop within weeks after surgery and may increase rapidly in size for three to six months and then, after a static phase, begin to regress. They mature to have an elevated, slightly rope-like appearance with increased width. Full maturation can take up to two years.
