  • well if you get surgery you'll just have an even more noticeable scar.

  • I had an emergency c-section and it left a huge red scar acrossmy abdomen. When I had some medically necessary surgery a few years later, I mentioned to the surgeon that I'd like to get rid of it and she said no problem. She cut above and below it, thus removing the scar completely. It healed properly this time and there is only a thin white line there that is almost invisible. It didn't hurt (or cost) anymore than just the regular surgery would have and I'm happy with it. Got rid of some of the extra, stretched skin and stretch marks, too!

  • I dont know about the surgery, but I hear great things about Bio Oil. I havent been able to find any though. I hear its expensive, but it works. Hope I helped!
