What is C-section scar revision?

C-section scar removal is a procedure aimed at revising and removing depressed or painful C-section scars. It is common to combine this with a mini tummy tuck to achieve optimal results. In certain instances, depressed vertical C-section scars can be eliminated, and laser liposuction can be employed to reduce surrounding areas, resulting in an enhanced scar appearance and a flatter abdomen.

    Who is a candidate for a C-section scar revision?

    If you have undergone a C-section delivery and are dissatisfied with the appearance of your scar, you might be a suitable candidate for C-section scar revision in Boca Raton & West Palm Beach

    Optimal candidates typically exhibit signs such as tethering/creasing of the scar, a noticeable step-off, or other deformities that can be addressed through the revision process.

    What does a C-section scar revision involve?

    Horizontal C-section scars are eliminated through a procedure often involving a mini tummy tuck. The skin above the C-section scar is undermined, tightened, and any excess skin is removed. For vertical depressed scars extending from the navel down to the pubis, the scar is excised, and laser liposuction is employed to reduce fat in the surrounding area, resulting in a flattened abdomen.

    What is recovery from a C-section scar revision like?

    If a C-section scar revision procedure also involves a tummy tuck, it can take up to 2 weeks for the patient to recover. If the procedure is focused entirely on removing a C-section scar, it can take as little as 7 to 10 days for the patient to fully recover. Patients will see improvements in the treated area immediately following the procedure. That said, it can take anywhere from a month to three months for the final results of the procedure to be perceivable.
