What does your c-section scar look like a few years on?
I had mine 5 months ago, and my scar getting thinner and is a dark purple colour. Will it fade to regular skin colour?
It was a bit numb feeling, but the sensation is coming back.
And for those who've had 2 c/s, do they cut in the same place? Or do you have 2 scars?

Your c-section scar

I had mine 2.5yrs ago and it is hard to see at all. I am having another and they use the same incision area, so the csection is not as quick as the first due to cutting through scar tissue. My ob uses glue which is why it heals so nicely, better than staples or removable stitches (internal stitches dissolve). Plus it is so low you I have to be naked before anyone would notice it.

Hey apple green.
I had my c -sect 17 months ago and my scar is tiny! It's pretty much the same color as my skin and is as thin as a piece of string unless you knew it was there you wouldnt notice it.
I never lost any feeling to there area but have heard it can tale up to 2 years for the feelings to come back.
As for having a second c -sect I won't know till June! But my OB said as long as bub is in the right position he will cut along the same scar.
I'd like to know if the scar heals as well the second and third time???
Sounds yuk cutting a scar open I'm kinda freaking out bout that!!

my first was 10 yrs 2nd 18ths same incision used yet the scar tissue is all cut out (excised) and you end up with one
the 2nd ob was wonderful healed up so much better than the first and is less noticeable than the 1st ever was you actually have to look to find it

My first scar was numb for over a year. At least 1.5cm around it. Funnily the feeling started to come back when utd with ds2.
My second cs they said they were going to cut on the old scar, but then in the surgery decided to cut around it, and i got a mini tummy tuck!!!
But I got full feeling back after around 6-8 weeks and the scar is flat, thin and light pink.

I've only had one so far, 14mths ago and the feeling only came back a few months ago but is still tender, next one will be a csec too but hopefully with a quicker healing time
Yep, it's another iPhone

I had 2, my last nearly 5 years ago.It's raised and still red, but I get keloid scarring. Most women find it's flat and silver about a year on.
and yes they use the same cut for subsequent births...

My scar is slowly beginning to get a bit of feeling back after my second c section 10 months ago .
It's still quite dark purple but very thin and neat . My obgyn actually said that she was unhappy with how it healed after the first c section and would neaten it while performing my second , I wasn't phased at all though . She also used the same incision site .

Yes they do what's called scar revision to fix up badly healed scars. They take a cm or so off each side. I had it done in the op with my 2nd. Unfortunately I just heal a certain way and it's better than the first time, but still quite red

Mine is 5 years old now and although extremely neat and straight etc, it is keloid, so still dark pink, still slightly raised and very visible. It was slightly opened up again a year later when I had my appendix removed, but even still, it's hardly faded at all and is above my 'hair line' so you definitely still see it.
