C-Section Scar Removal
Childbirth is a wonderful experience of joy. However, you may need a C-section, which can leave an unsightly scar. These scars may fade over time, but often persist for various reasons. A C-section can also create a bulge of fat in the abdomen that makes you feel self-conscious. C-section scar removal can help restore your body to its appearance prior to pregnancy.
How C-Section Scar Removal Works
C-section scar removal is typically performed as a surgical procedure under local anesthesia. During the surgery, tissue around the scar is realigned to make the scar less prominent. A tummy tuck can be performed at the same time to remove excess fat and skin. Recovery takes up to two weeks before you can resume normal activities.
There are a few non-surgical C-section scar removal options. Laser therapy can soften the scar and reduce discoloration. Multiple treatments may be needed before the desired results are achieved. Steroid injections can treat more aggressive scars. These injections may need to be done monthly for three to six months, depending on their severity.
Ideal C-Section Scar Removal Candidates
Individuals who seek C-section scar removal are women who are unhappy with the appearance of the scar after childbirth. To be considered for treatment, a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is necessary. Ideal candidates are non-smokers who are healthy enough for surgery.
