Scar revision, mini tummy tuck or ... ?

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I am recovering from a C-section. Half the scar looks great, the other half looks less than great. When I lay flat, it indents, when I stand, the side hangs down more than the other side. I still don't know what went wrong. My doctor said I should talk to a plastic surgeon about a scar revision if I couldn't resolve it with scar tissue massage. That leads me here. So I wonder, is there a difference between scar revision v. mini tummy tuck? Is the surgery pretty brutal? How's the recovery? Could I do it with two little boys, ages 2 mo. and four? How do I research the best doctor? I have a list the OBGYN office provided me, that seemed like a good start. I'm not looking for a perfectly flat, washboard stomach. Just want to look a little bit less maimed. Also, I'm generally a very fit, active person.
