C-Section Scar Treatment in Dubai

Cesarean section, widely known as C-section, is a major surgery in which you deliver a baby through an incision in the abdomen and uterus.

Here is what you need to know about what a C-section scar is, the importance of treating a C-section scar, and the options available for treatment. 

What is a C-section Scar?

 After delivering the baby through the cesarean section, the incision leaves a visible scar which is commonly called C–section scar. Usually, there are two types of C-section scars: Vertical and horizontal. 

The vertical incision is carried out in the case of an emergency where the baby or mother is facing a serious situation and in urgency.

The horizontal incision is very common in C-section surgeries where the doctor makes an incision horizontally, right above the public area and in the uterus. 

Now, either this way or that way, both incisions will leave scars that are likely treatable. 

Importance of Treating C-section Scar

C-section scar occupies a large abdominal area and therefore, it is necessary to treat it because the treatment can

  • Revive the looks of the abdomen to its original shape. 
  • You will not need to hide the visible scar on your tummy in public
  • The treatment, if performed by a qualified doctor, can produce long-lasting results. 
  • Your lower abdomen will look smoother as the treatment can fade out the scar line. 

Types of C-section Scar Treatment in Dubai

There are numerous options available for C-section scar removal treatment in Dubai. Patients can prefer a treatment according to their health conditions and requirements. 

Non-Invasive Treatment for C-section Scar

 Some people prefer to avoid going under the knife. For them, there are approved non-invasive scar treatments that can generate productive results. 

Silicone Sheets

Using silicone sheets softens the scar tissue and causes it to fade. However, it is a long process and you need to use it patiently until the silicone sheets hydrate the scar tissue completely and enhance its appearance. 

Scar Creams

You can apply scar creams to the scar – after it heals – and massage it for 5-10 minutes daily. The scar creams like Vitamin E or silicone gel can stimulate cellular growth and help the scars remove.

Laser Scar Removal

Laser scar removal treatment is considered a result-oriented procedure for removing adamant scars from the abdomen. During the procedure, the practitioner directs a concentrated beam of light (laser) at the scar. The laser softens the scar and eventually compels it to fade. 

Invasive Treatments for C-section Scar

Invasive treatments are surgical treatments whose sole purpose is to make the scar invisible. 

Scar Revision Surgery

In case, if the creams or massage don’t help in removing the scar, the doctor may suggest scar revision surgery. In this treatment, the surgeon reopens the skin and removes the scar tissue. 

Dermabrasion for Scar Removal

Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon scrapes away the scar tissue using a specifically designed tool. The process continues until the surgeon makes sure that the scar is less visible. 

Autologous Fat Transfer

Fat transfer has been found effective in improving the appearance of C-section scars. This technique involves extracting fat from some regions of the patient’s body, purifying the extracted fat to acquire viable fat grafts, and implanting those grafts under the C-section scar to improve its appearance. The final results of this treatment may occur six or more months after the treatment, depending on the scar’s depth, the patient’s healing response, and other factors.

How to choose the right C-section scar treatment in Dubai

Considering the right treatment for your scar, you need to do in-depth research. For that purpose, you need to consider the following factors. 

Factors to Consider when Choosing a Treatment

The severity of the Scar

You know better about your scar and if it is deep, highly visible, and old, the creams or silicone gel may not work. For such cases, you will have to move for laser scar removal treatment

Patient’s Medical History

Your doctor will examine your medical history and then can decide which treatment is suitable for you. In medical history, the doctor will check your blood count, sugar level, and mental state whether you are mentally prepared for surgical or nonsurgical treatment. 

Cost of Treatment

The cost of C-section scar removal treatment in Dubai is not fixed. It varies from treatment to treatment. For example, the average starting cost of surgical scar revision treatment is 2500 AED. For laser scar removal, the cost varies depending on the number of sessions required for the treatment and the size of the area. 

Doctor’s experience and reputation

Always choose a doctor whose reputation is second-to-none in terms of successful results. 

Recovery time

The recovery time varies from treatment to treatment. In the case of laser scar removal treatment, you can continue your routine work right the next day. However, after scar revision or dermabrasion, you will have to follow the recovery process. 

Common Complications

As we discussed above, every treatment has its own pros and cons. Similarly, surgical treatments require more care than nonsurgical treatments. The good point is no treatment holds a serious threat to life. All you need to do is follow the guidelines of your doctor and make sure there is no negligence in taking medications.
