Caesarean sections, or C-sections, are quite common when delivering babies. Though obstetricians are trained to perform C-sections as low on the belly as possible, sometimes the urgency of a situation can create unfortunate scarring. C-section scars can run either across the width of the belly or vertical, through a woman’s navel. They vary from thin, squiggly white lines to thick, raised scars that can be painful to the touch.
Our meticulous surgeons are highly experienced in scar revision and take great pleasure in helping women find treatment for these minor imperfections.

Depending upon the nature of each case, this procedure can require up to two weeks for recovery. When scar removal also includes procedures involved in a mommy makeover or tummy tuck, the recovery period will most likely take longer.

Any redness associated with scarring will continue to heal and fade, with final results appearing anywhere from six weeks up to three months.
