Abnormal Scar Formation Following Mitral Valve Replacement

You will have a scar following mitral valve replacement. In most cases, these heal without any problems; however, it is possible that you will develop abnormal scars, especially if you have a history of keloids or excessive, thick scarring. Consultation with a dermatologist and discussion with your physician about your specific case are required if you are concerned with these issues.
 
It's important to remember that the appearance of abnormal scars does not predict the results of your operation. Even patients with enlarged scars can have excellent surgical results.
