Wound Breakdown After Cesarean Section

Wound Breakdown After Cesarean Section: An Overview


After the cesarean section is finished, your skin is sewn back together with stitches and covered with a bandage. Sometimes, your skin, or the layers of tissue beneath it, may not heal well. This wound breakdown after cesarean section can happen because of an infection or swelling. It may also happen in people who are obese or who have other health concerns, such as diabetes.
If the incision doesn't heal well, it may need extra attention. This can include changing the bandage daily or possibly having additional surgery. It may take extra time for the wound to heal, and your scar may also be thicker and more obvious.
