When I was a child, I accumulated a collection of cuts and scrapes, including a surgical incision. These all formed scar tissue as they healed. Now, 30 to 40 years later, most of the scar tissue has disappeared. So I would like to understand why and how scar tissue disappears, and why it takes so long. Is the process the same for internal scars as it is for scars on the skin?
