I have had three c/secs, all with dissolvable sutures, and I have an amazingly inconspicuous scar line. I think it might be in part because of the number of steristrips my OB uses - he puts on so many it is like a solid line. My incision has never opened up, and I am not the type to stay in bed for recovery. They were itchy to get off later, but worth it if I don't have a big scar. You can see a little place where there are two lines, like he wobbled when cutting
, and after my second there was a spot where you could tell the top didn't quite match the bottom and he fixed that with the third repair. He won't do a tummy tuck though!
I have heard that you have to go in at two weeks to have staples or regular sutures removed, and if that is true I am just as glad to not make that visit. I just have the regular 6 week postpartum with my midwives.
I would like to know if he cuts the old scar on my uterus or if he makes a new one. I plan to ask when I see him again.
