What Causes a C-Section Scar?
Despite the misconceptions of many, the scar is not the result of an infection. The c-section incision will leave scarring, It is the result of re-attaching the various layers of skin and tissue. Fortunately, modern cesareans leave much smaller scars compared to those of yesteryear. There are two separate incisions made in a c-section. The first is through the abdominal wall (leaving a visible scar on your tummy) and the second is made in the uterus itself (with the scarring on the inside).
