What will the scars from ACL reconstruction surgery look like?
That will depend on the type of surgery and where the graft was taken from. For an open technique, the scar will run down the front of the knee and tibia, for an arthroscopic procedure, there will be multiple small incisions (about 1 cm) around the knee. There will be an additional scar if the graft was removed from somewhere on the leg other than the knee. Your surgeon will give you advice on how to minimise scarring.
