A hypertrophic scar is a thickened scar that forms due to injury to the skin. The scar does not go beyond the border of the cut or surgical wound. A keloid literally means a "crab-like" scar and extends beyond the border of the affected area. Hypertrophic scars flatten out spontaneously within a year. If the scar is still raised after one year, it will not usually flatten on its own. Keloid scars often continue increase in size for several years.
