Dear Jaeshela, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

You are suffering from hypertrophic scar or keloids. There are a number of treatment options available. 1st get it properly diagnosed by doctor who performed the surgery. If it's a simple scar or hypertrophic scar, you can go for scar revision surgery. Fraxel Laser is also a good option. Topical gels like Hexilak or silicon gel/sheets can also be used. For keloids, best results are seen with intra-keloidal injections of triamcinolone. Good luck.
