This is a 26-year-old woman who had a cesarean section several years ago and was unhappy with the scar she was left with. It was wide, thickened in some areas, and indented. She reported that the contour deformity would actually show through bathing suits. The only modality that would improve the appearance of this indented and deforming scar was complete revision and creation of a new scar wtih the tissues lined up better. It is simply a matter of using careful technique with attention to repairing the various layers as they normally are anatomically.
