C-Section Scar Removal
For many women who have a C-section delivery for the birth of their child, the scar left behind is noticeable. A C-section scar can be horizontal or vertical, both showing above the underwear or when wearing a bikini. Some C-section scars can be raised and uncomfortable, while others may indent or keloid. If you have a C-section scar that is very noticeable, Dr. Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills offers C-section scar removal.
Like most scars, C-section scars can be treated without surgery to reduce their appearance. Laser treatments or injections may be used to shrink or fade C-section scars, but the scar will still remain. Non-surgical C-section scar treatments can be used for mild scars to minimize their appearance. For more pronounced scars or complete removal, surgery is usually required.
Tummy Tucks with C-Section Scar Removal
If there is a severe indent with skin flap over a C-section scar or the scar is compounded by extra tissue or skin, a mini tummy tuck with C-section scar removal can be performed. These procedures can be combined, removing excess skin, liposuction and C-section scar removal in one procedure. A mini tummy tuck for C-section scar removal is less invasive than a complete tummy tuck or “Mommy Makeover” procedure. For those who do want a complete tummy tuck, their C-section scar can be revised.
With C-section scar revision, there will still be a scar, but it can be moved or reduced. Vertical C-section scars can be smoother, or horizontal scars can be hidden below the bikini line with a mini tummy tuck procedure.
