This is my scar from cesarean last Nov. 25 2015. I was unhappy because is not flat. Actually this is my 2nd C section. My first one was vertical, you can see that has a dark brown in the center. If I know that this will happen to me, I think I will decided to open the first one even take a while to heal. Unfortunately it was too late. Also, I had a lot of bruises around the incision. It took 1 month and 1 week to disappear.
