You may have a small scar following this procedure. Most often these heal without any problems. However, it is possible that you will develop a noticeable scar, especially if you have a history of keloids, which is a scar that increases in thickness. If you are concerned about these issues, you will need to consult with a dermatologist and your physician about your specific case. The appearance of the scars, however, does not predict the results of your operation. Even patients with enlarged scars can have excellent surgical results.
