    Default C-Section scar revision

    I was just wondering if anyone has had a c/s scar revision or mini tummy tuck to revise your c/s scar??
    I just had my 3rd c/s 6 weeks ago and my scar prior was fantastic, not even visible but in theatre after I'd been stitched up they dropped my leg off the bed. Needless to say the healing of my scar has taken longer and the left hand side of my scar is folded, pulled in and purple..
    If you have had one I'd just like to know whats involved? Recovery time? How'd you feel after you were recovered.
    Thanks

    Hi I havent had a scar revision done but my next c section the OB plans on doing this/tidy up of the scar.
    I did consult with a plastic surgeon who explained the procedure and the risks etc. The recovery process would be the same as essentially having a csection and taking it easy for 6 weeks etc. I personally didnt want to go through the lengthy recovery process, not driving and chasing a toddler around! Hope this helps a bit!

    Thank you for your reply. I thought it would be much like an actual c-section and recovery. I wish I was having more children so it could be tidied up like you will have with your next c/s but 4 is enough for me.. Might wait for it to heal more then looking into the revision once bub is older.

    Yes am lucky I can get it done next csection as mine has healed as a keloid scar and is painful (only slightly though) i was using silicone strips to reduce the scar and they were working quite well - very expensive though - pm me if you are after the name of the strips and I can dig out the box and have a look.
