To those with deep scars

I am trying to figure out if my scars are deep or superficial. One doc says superficial, another deep. I think superficial.

So, here is a question. If you have deep scars, can you feel the scar tissue when you press on it? I'm imagining kind of like you can feel the scar tissue once your pierced ear has closed up. My out of town brother, who is a doc but not a derm, thought that if the scars were deep I'd probably be able to feel the scar tissue. Is that right?

I have some fairly deep scarring but no I can't feel the scar tissue you are speaking about.

Someone here recently posted that his doctor did a stretch test on his skin. If you stretch back the skin and the scar is still apparent you pretty much need a good amount of therapy to remove them.

for what it's worth.
