Hi, look this is a process called scar contracture which bounds to happen on a grafted skin after few years
Nothing much could be done except that you can use silicon gel sheets or a moistoriser over the thickened skin
at the most you can consult a plastic surgeon and get the contracture released by a surgery
take care
