Abnormal Scars and Beating Heart Bypass Surgery

Will I Have a Scar After Beating Heart Bypass Surgery?

You will have a large scar on your chest after your surgery. Some people develop abnormal scars after beating heart bypass surgery. These scars are often raised and thicker than normal scars. These are called keloids, and they can be tender or painful for a long time after the surgery.
If you are worried about this, please talk to your doctor. Remember that how a scar looks has nothing to do with how well the surgery went. Also, be sure to tell your surgeon if you've ever had an abnormal scar in the past.
