What does a C-section scar look like?

Rest assured, most scars from a C-section heal well and are barely noticeable!

  • During a C-section, you actually undergo two incisions: the first one, in the uterus, is internal while the second one is made in the belly.
  • In the absence of complications, the second incision is mostly made horizontally, in the lower abdomen area: it will be more resistant and more aesthetic.
  • The scar is closed with staples or stitches.
  • You must have it closely monitored to ensure that no infection occurs.
  • In most cases, the scar evolves well and remains relatively discreet.
