C-section revision: indentation.

Had a bad infection post csection. Wound had to be re-opened and drained with a wound vac. This left a big hole type indentation in the middle. It's awful. How can I fix this and is it a major procedure?

This is tough to answer without pictures. A combination approach can be used to improve the appearance of the scar including: scar revision, lasers, microneedling/prp, 5fu/steroid injections. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer
