Should I get a Tuck or Scar Revision for C Section Scar?

Tags:woman age 25-34 scar C section

I have a scar from my C Section but do not know how to get rid of it. Some people say a tummy tuck works but then now I am seeing that I can just get a scar revision. Is that just a way to fix the scar without touching anything else? That would be cool, but is that legit?

Hi Laura,

Great question! Both options are worth considering, but it all depends on your individual situation.

If you suffer from a c-shelf too, a tummy tuck will smooth out the area and may even remove the c-section scar entirely, depending on its placement.

Women with raised scars and no c-shelf are more likely to consider pursuing scar revision or various scar removal options.
