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.
