C-Section Scar Management

Options for C-section & Tummy Tuck scars

Cesarean procedures produce medium to long scars across the lower abdomen, above the pubic bone and between the hip bones. Our Epi-Derm silicone gel Long Strips and C-strips are available in both Original Epi-Derm and Epi-Derm Natural. Biodermis strips are specifically designed to treat your cesarean and abdominoplasty scars.


What is a C-section?

Cesarean delivery — also known as a C-section — is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through an incision in the mother's abdomen and a second incision in the mother's uterus.

A C-section might be planned ahead of time if you develop pregnancy complications or you've had a previous C-section and aren't considering vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Often, however, the need for a first-time C-section doesn't become obvious until labor is under way.

If you're pregnant, knowing what to expect during a C-section — both during the procedure and afterward — can help you prepare.
