Stonecold, I really think a big factor is just an individual's tendency to scar.  Darker skinned people scar worse and are more prone to hyperpigmentation and hypertrophic scars.  Also the skill of the surgeon on how he/she closes the wound.

But besides that stonecold, I don't know how many people have to tell you, but you're first op with Levick left you with a great looking chest!

Even if the scar looks bad at first it usually recedes to almost nothing.  I had one side where I had an infection and the initial scar was looking bad, but 7 month down the line at it isn't that noticeable.  Even huge scars from major surgery can heal and not look too bad given time (I know).

Of course it depends on the initial work of the surgeon and it also depends on your own body and ethnic origin.
