Like alternamama82 my scar on the outside is vertical from my belly button to my pubic hair. Because of the way they chose to close it and because of my weight, the staples at the top were not able to hold the wound together and I have a 1 1/2 inch raised, red, puffy, Keloid scar at the top, near my belly button that just stands out on my very pale skin. The rest is invisible. I think that if the entire thing was invisible, it wouldn't draw attention... and we wouldn't think about it every time we see it.
