Keloids spread at the scar tissue. These are the superficial layer of the scar with a flat appearance and central regression of tissues.

3. Mature keloid:

Old keloids present for a longer duration without further growth and pain. A patient complains of mature keloids at the site of surgery. It appears deep brown.

4. Multiple keloids:

Keloids present at multiple sites or aggregation of small keloids at one place.
