Scar tissue: Adhesions are seen in abdominal surgery. They are usually the result of trauma surgery where bleeding and damages occur to bowel surfaces. It is related to keloids, but not technically the same.

Absolutely not: Adhesions are related to the healing process where the collagen formation results in undesirable sequela. Keloids are a raised scar above the skin surface that extends beyond the margins of the skin wound.
