High risk to recur: A hypertrophic knee scar is likely to return without proper scar care or treatment. An extensor surface like a knee with a genetic propensity towards hypertrophic scars is a difficult combination. Proper surgical excision with postoperative silicone sheeting and intralesional steroid injections is a good treatment plan.
