Hi there,

I assume you have to go for open heart surgery to get a Bypass done?

The scar you can expect from this:  they start the incision, in the centre of your chest, about 5cm from where your collorbone/sternum starts, and then it goes down to the bottom of your sternum.  On young patients they would try not to use clips on the skin as it would leave extra marks, so the skin should be glued (special surgical glue) together.  Surgeons use sternum wires to hold the sternum in place and it should stay there forever.

On 31 March 2008 I had OHS to fix mitral valve.  I was 32.  I had to somehow change my wardrobe as not to show of to much of the "zip" but it is a small price to pay for good health.
