Cesarean Section Scars

Not all scars are equal, but they do have one thing in common: the sooner you treat them, the better your outcome.

Pregnancy and childbirth can change your body- some women embrace their new, changing bodies, while others desire to reclaim their bodies. Dr. Sodhi and the Bloom team support women in ALL their decisions and want you to have the full spectrum of options. If you are embracing the changes that come along with motherhood, that is wonderful and no one should judge you for it. Likewise, if you want your body back that you worked equally hard for, there is no shame in that, and it is not any less “natural”.

We would be doing you a great disservice if you were not aware of all the options available to you, especially since certain changes, like c-section scars, are best treated soon after their appearance. Have you had an emergency or planned c-section scar? If you do not want to live with your scar forever, consider laser scar removal and call us today for a free evaluation.

Regardless of your personal views on scar removal, you should at the very least keep your c-section scar clean and allow the natural wound-healing process to take place. To make this part of the process easy and convenient, we also offer EltaMD silver gel and wound cleanser at your postpartum visit to aid your healing.
