Women who have undergone C-section delivery are not alone in developing rare Cesarean scar conditions. Many women who have been through a C-section delivery find that they have scarring on their body. Some of the scarring can be hidden with makeup or clothing, but some can't. The scarring can also be present when the baby is born or immediately after the delivery. Understanding how the condition develops can help you cope with it.

The scar is the first line of defense from the rare scar condition. It is often hard to determine if the scar has developed properly because the condition itself is not usually visible until after the scar has faded. For example, a woman who has had a C-section delivery might have very minor scarring. A more serious scar might develop as the condition worsens and the skin heals. This could require a surgery procedure.

Because of the scarring, most women find that they have a hard time adjusting to having a new baby. It is also hard to enjoy the special moment when you look at your newborn, knowing that your birth wound might be visible to everyone. In extreme cases, women who have had C-section deliveries have experienced emotional difficulties because their scars were visible and their self-esteem was lowered.

The scar itself is not the only factor that leads to this rare scar condition. There are other risk factors that lead to scarring. Some examples of these risk factors include: pregnancy related diseases such as preeclampsia, diabetes, or hypertension; health problems that can cause damage to the womb such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or menopausal hormone (MHT); obesity; and genetic problems. Most women with scars also have allergies or asthma. If you are experiencing any of these conditions, it is important to discuss the scar with your physician right away so you can get treatment as soon as possible.

The scarring will likely fade over time, although the scarring will never completely disappear. The scar will remain for the rest of your life unless you seek treatment to remove it. In the meantime, it is important to learn about the scar and how to avoid it. The scar might be visible to others and you may feel embarrassed to talk about it, but you should never put it off or attempt to conceal it from anyone.

Because it is an uncommon scar condition, it can be treated with cosmetic procedures that can improve your appearance. Your scarring might fade over time, although the scarring might not always fade.
