C-Section Scar Removal London

When caesarean section birth is performed by an inexperienced surgeon or external circumstances affect the quality of the healing process, the scars can heal badly and for many women this can become an aesthetic concern. C-section scar removal is often the only way to permanently address the issue by creating a neater, more aesthetically pleasing scar tissue. C-section scar removal is frequently combined with a mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, or mummy makeover, as these procedures will work to revise your C-section scar and add definition and contour to the abdomen.

This article will explore the different treatments available to reduce the appearance of C-section scars and help you understand which treatment path will be most appropriate for your needs.

What is Caesarean Section Scar Removal?

C-section scar treatment consists of removing the previous C-section scar via a short surgery and adjusting the skin at the edges of the incision to create less skin tension and relieve pressure. Depending on your circumstances, targeted liposuction or other surgical procedures may be necessary, contouring the skin around the new scar to ensure symmetry.

Reasons for C-Section Scar Revision Surgery

There are many reasons to undergo C-section scar revision, including:

  • Development of noticeably pigmented scars – Some scars can develop with a lighter or darker skin pigment to the surrounding skin, which can make them much more noticeable
  • Keloid scars – Keloid scars develop when scars continue to grow and become raised and thicker than the original scar – they are the result of an excess of collagen in the skin
  • Irregular shaped scars – Sometimes scarring can develop in an irregular or asymmetrical shape, which can unbalance the aesthetics of the abdomen
  • Painful scars that restrict movement – When scars become overly thick or tight, this can sometimes restrict you from moving into certain positions – a removal can relax a tight scar or flatten a thick or protruding one

What to Expect from C-Section Scar Revision Surgery

C-section scar removal consists of removing the previous C-section scar via a short surgery and adjusting the skin at the edges of the incision to decrease skin tension and relieve pressure from tight scars that may be causing discomfort. It can also remove thick keloid scarring and reshape scars that have become asymmetrical. Depending on your circumstances, targeted liposuction may be necessary, contouring the skin around the new scar to ensure symmetry.

Dr. Tillo performs C-section scar revision surgery under either local anaesthetic, deep sedation or general anaesthetic, if necessary. The procedure lasts around an hour, depending on the severity and size of the scar.

    Caesarean Section Scar Revision FAQs

    Will Insurance Cover C-Section Scar Removal?

    In most cases, the National Health Service will not cover C-section scar removal, as it is a cosmetic procedure. If your scar is causing physical issues such as significant pain or discomfort, this may be covered by the NHS depending on the criteria of your local NHS trust.

    How Long After Having a C-Section Can I Get C-Section Scar Revision Surgery?

    Dr. Tillo advises waiting at least six months from your C-section before undergoing scar revision surgery. It is advisable to wait until you haven’t no more plans for further children before getting a C-section scar revision. Further children could impact the results of the surgery and create the need for a further revision in future.

    What Happens to My C-Section Scar Revision if I Need to Have Another C-Section?

    In order to perform a second C-section, surgeons will generally use the site of the previous C-section incision. If you have a C-section after your C-section revision surgery, it is likely they will try to use the same incision site – this may affect the appearance of your C-section scar revision, as the scar that forms may be prominent or asymmetrical, creating the need for a further revision surgery.
