scar question......

another question for mom that have had c-sections,
so i had my surgery and now my 5 one inch incisions and my 5 inch 'c-sestion' incisions that they took my liver out of are all closed and i was wondering what you ladies use to reduce scaring. i know vitamin E is good, but i don't know what product i should buy.

thanks in advance!

I didn't use anything there, I'm fat, so no one can see it. LOL BUT on my knee surgery scar, I used Mederma, that stuff worked great, and my BFF has a TERRIBLE scar from her leg surgery, and Mederma is working for her too...

lol, you can't see the long scar, but the other 5 are scattered all over my ribcage. I'm hopping to get skinny, so I'm being optimistic that ill need to worry about people seeing the long scar too! thanks for the Mederma suggestion!

I didn't use anything. It's been almost 5 years now and it's barely visible. At 1 year it was looking pretty nice, but it has continued to fade over time.

MEDERMA! It has worked amazingly on my scars (I don't have a c-sec scar though).
