Caesarean section scar is a trace left on the wound after surgery. It is generally white or grayish white, smooth and hard. About two to three weeks after the scalpel is scarred, the scar begins to proliferate, at which time it becomes red, purple, hard, and highlights the surface of the skin. There are new nerve endings at the scar, but it is messy.
The formation of scars is related to skin color and constitution. The deeper the skin color, the easier it is to have scars. Whether it is trauma or surgery, as long as the wound penetrates the dermis, the body will produce scar tissue that will connect the wound. Because the human body has different mechanisms for wound healing, if the wound is in the epidermal layer and belongs to the regeneration mechanism, the epidermis will grow the same tissue cells as the original, so no scar will be left. However, when the cortex injures the dermis, the healing mechanism belongs to the repair system. The human body produces scar tissue to connect the wound and produce scars left after healing.
