Many women have to undergo a c-section when they give birth, typically due to problems that arise during labor. As a result, new moms will have a scar from the procedure, and for some people, the scar can be quite long, red and raised. However, plastic surgeons can fix this issue, according to La Jolla Light.

The c-section scar is usually quite large, as it has to be big enough to accommodate the size of the baby. This can cause the scar to be pretty long and in some cases, thick and unsightly.

A new trend as of late involves mothers seeking a plastic surgeon to get their pre-pregnancy body with a tummy tuck procedure and breast lift or augmentation – often referred to as a Mommy Makeover. As a part of this, women can ask the surgeon to conduct a scar revision for their c-section scar.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, those who shed several pounds in a short period of time may have excess skin as well as stretch marks. These individuals may also want to opt for a tummy tuck procedure, as it can correct these issues.
