: Hi...I'm a 16 year old boy...I had open heart surgury for aorticstanosis June/1999...My aortia was replased w/ my pulminary valve and my pulminary valve was replaced by a cadaver...It left me with a pretty noticible scar...It has faded but I am really uncomfortable with it...I was just wondering if anyone knows how I can help diminish the appearince of this scar so it is a lot less noticible...thanks for your help.

Hi, 'there us something you can buy at the chemist , I am not sure of the name for it now but its like a silicone sheet that you cut to size and it sticks on over your scar, you might need to wear this for a few months though, it is washable but fairly expensive, but it even works on older scars, it will make it much less obvious for you if you could get some of it.
Some hospitals might be able to get some for you cheaper if you enquire about it, I am sorry I don't the name of it, if I remember it soon I will repost.
Best of luck.
Julie.
