Giving birth is one of the most natural things a woman can do during her child-bearing years. While a vaginal delivery is always the most desired type of delivery, many women find that they need to undergo a cesarean delivery to bring their baby into the world in the safest way. Advancements in medical technology have saved many mothers and babies by cesarean, and this surgery is considered to be one of the most important medical advances of all time. However, this surgical procedure does not come without some unwanted results. Scarring is inevitable from any type of surgery, but because a cesarean is performed on a stomach that is stretched to its absolute max, scarring can be more severe and prominent. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman is a nationally recognized dermatologist who provides top quality keloid treatment.
Some women are happy to cover their cesarean scars by wearing a more modest bathing suit, but many women do not want to be limited because of their scars. They feel very embarrassed and self-conscious about their scar’s appearance and wish to have them treated. For many women, these keloid scars can also become painful and itchy, making them unpleasant to live with. This thick scar invades the surrounding healthy skin and becomes bigger, raised, and discolored. Keloid scars can affect all women who have undergone a cesarean delivery, and there is no clear reasoning why some women get keloid scars and others do not. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we work with you on an individual basis because we know that no two women are alike. We will use a treatment technique that is best for your specific keloid scar, including topical creams, corticosteroid injections or surgical removal, if necessary.
If you are self-conscious about your cesarean keloid scar or it is negatively affecting your well being, please contact Medical Dermatology Specialists today. We are committed to providing the successful solution that you desire for your unwanted scar.
