In brief: Scarring

That depends. Everyone heals differently and some people may be prone to keloid scarring, which may not resolve over time.

In brief: No Set Formula

There are no hard and fast timelines as to the healing of scars.
If you are asking about internal scarring associated with breast reduction with regards to future mammograms, radiologists can usually distinguish internal scarring as a result of breast reduction vs malignant lesions. Baseline mammogram 6 months post-op, genetic testing, there are things you can do based on your specifics.
