I had a cesarean section 7 weeks ago and was wondering if anyone had advice on how to minimize the apperance of the incision? After it healed I started putting some Vitamin E on it but I don't know if that works well and was looking for anything to help it along. Thanks!

Mine is just slowly going away. It is barely noticeable and I have had tow c-sections, my first was done 21 months ago and I had my second 13 months after that and it has been 8 months now. It is still numb around the scar but the scar itself just faded on it's own I didn't have to put anything on it.

I know you can buy creams to help this. Also I know olive oil is a good moisturizer. I didn't have a c-section so I don't know personally. Maybe ask at the pharmacy
