Since : Since the procedure was done 2 years ago, the areas you describe are unlikely to change significantly. If they are at the area where the adhesion was released or cut, they represent healing of the cut skin. It may be a keloid or hypertrophic scarring. If it is a concern or cosmetically unappealing you may want him evaluated by a pediatric urologist.

It : It is honestly hard to say without looking at it. Sometimes there can be scarring on the glans (head) of the penis that looks like skin tags or raised areas of skin. It could also be something left over from his procedure at your doctors office. If you are concerned enough about it i would recommend seeing a pediatric urologist. They would be able to let you know right away. Good luck!

Healing scars: A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues never are the same and so some scarring will always be there.
