    C-section scar

    I wonder what anyone did to flatten/ lighten their c-section scar? I hear Cica care and the Hansaplast plasters are good, I wonder if anyone has any experience to share?

    i never worried about it. i look at it as a "battle scar" and i'm proud of all i went through to get it.

    then again, i don't think i could wear a bikini in public even if you paid me!

    (but that has nothing to do with the scar! LOL!)

    I used Cica Care and my c-section scar is just a pale red line (not raised). I used them for about two weeks to a month (? - can't remember exactly now) after giving birth.

    I used Cica care silicone strips for 2mths after my first csection starting from 2mths after the surgery because i developed a hypertrophic scar. It worked really well!

    For my 2nd csection I used it as soon as the stiched came out for 3 weeks. My scar healed very nicely, it's flat and has faded to a light brown colour.

    my Ob gave me Mepiform strips which are like plasters that i leave on for a week at a time for 4 months. They are supposed to prevent keloid scars (raised scars).

    To lighten scars from other surgerys i have used vitamin E oil. I've bought it in a bottle (in London) and i have also used the gel capsules which i have split open to release the oil (you should be able to get these at health food stores or maybe Mannings)

    I used these plasters too for a month or so. Then I wore the plaster at night and used bio oil during the day. You can hardly even see the scar now. Totally flat and all the remains is a very pale line...and I'm very fair.

    Where to buy that cica strips, never thought about it. I had thick keloid scars for my first. OB says he will do something for the 2nd so it will be flatten.

    But like Cara, not a big deal for me as i won't dare wear bikini in public

    I don't know if you can get them at a pharmacy, but I got mine from my OB/gyn.
