Can a C-section Scar Be Erased Completely by Surgery?

Doctor Answers 1

C-section scar

There is no treatment that can erase any scars including C-section scars. If your scar is a red/pink, immature scar (generally less than 1 year), laser treatments can help. If your scar is thick, cortisone injections are beneficial. Surgical scar revision may help camouflage the scar, but will not "erase it."

Good luck.
