A scar is a skin change that occurs at the site of damaged tissue. Scar injuries are inevitable and their development is unpredictable. Surgical scar removal involves correcting their appearance.
A scar removal treatment will not completely eliminate a scar, but it can significantly improve its appearance. Postoperative scar correction, after cesarean section consists of its excision. Patient’s predisposition to healing wounds and scars, adherence to medical recommendations (using ointments or patches, scar massages), hygiene and avoiding the sun are of great importance for the final effect after the procedure.
