Scars and Total Hip Replacement Surgery

You will have a scar following total hip replacement surgery. In most cases, the scar heals without any problems. However, it is possible that you will develop an abnormal scar, especially if you have a history of keloids (excessive, thick scarring). A consultation with a dermatologist and a discussion with your physician about your specific case are required if you have concerns. The appearance of the scar, however, does not reflect the results of the total hip replacement surgery. Scars can be enlarged even for patients with excellent surgical results.
