  • no, but as bad as tanning is sadly its good for your belly to go bac(the extra stretcyness helps go away faster) iv read it in 3 different books, so id liek to give it a try and see if its a lie or not haha

  • i started taning when my c section cute was healed to where no visible sores were there. Like maybe 3-4 weeks after you get your staples out.. i went twice a week until i got a little color back and to help my scar look more normal.. plus it darkened my stretch marks so they werent shiny and as noticeable..

  • I never had a c-section, but I would assume some regular scar issues would still apply. when my nephew got stiches he was told to put sunscreen on them and stay out of the sun to help reduce the visibility of the scar, just something to think about.

  • whenever you have a scar, the drs always say not to go out in the sun if you want to reduce the visibility of the scar! Keep it out of the sun unless you want it noticeable forever! Lotion is great for increasing elasticity of the skin - mine went back in time. It just takes time for your body to heal - it took 9 months to get that way.
