Cesarean Sections have become a very common type of birth in modern times



The advancement of medical techniques for pregnancy exams has allowed for much better diagnoses of the mother’s health as well as the baby’s condition during pregnancy. This has led to an increase in cesarean sections when any problems are suspected to occur during vaginal birth, and instead an incision is used in the mother’s stomach and the baby taken out that way, insuring both’s safety.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has released statistics reporting that one in five births are now done by cesarean section, making this an incredibly common form of birth.

Cesarean Sections can take an incredible toll on a mother’s body.

Cesarean sections are a way of giving birth used to protect the baby or mother. Although the safety rate of this method is extremely high it is still an operation, and so in many ways puts a heavier burden on the mother than vaginal birth, and therefore requires a longer recovery period.

The period of hospitalization for vaginal birth is about five to seven days, but for cesarean sections increases to seven to ten days.

One in Three Women Have Problems with Post Cesarean Section Scaring


Bodies produce collagen which helps repair damaged skin. However, if too much collagen is produced it can lead to hypertrophic scarring or keloid that can be bothersome for the rest of a patients life. At times this means itching and pain that can endure for a lifetime.

Ensuring the return of beautiful skin is not easy, and can require a long and expensive period of medical treatments, medicine, surgeries, with no promise of not recurring.

It is a fact that the overproduction of collagen has been shown to occur very often post-operations around the lower abdominal region, such as cesarean sections or laparoscopic surgery. In fact, according to a survey of cesarean section patients, one in three have trouble with hypertrophic scarring.



Reduce Risk with our Easy Prevention Method

There are several ways to prevent the overproduction of collagen. These include, applying or taking medicine or injections, but such methods cause concern for any mother who chooses to breastfeed as transference may occur.

Additionally, the symptoms of overproduction of collagen may not appear for several months, so preventative care may need to continue for a very long time. It is of the utmost importance that such elongated care be made easy.

Preventative care usually involves using a sheet or tape on the affected area. Most highly recommended is a silicone sheet.

Although a bit more expensive than tapes, the silicone gel sheets protect the affected area more securely, providing a cushion.

An added bonus is that skin irritation is also reduced with the gentle sheet in place of a rougher paper tape.

Mothers tend to get incredibly busy solely focused on the care of their new baby, but shouldn't forget to take care of themselves as well with preventative care for mothers.
