    I don't think you can really rid of a scar but you can make it fade. Bio Oil and vitamin e is great for skin.

    This. If you want it to fade though, you can use something like Mederma or Cocoa butter.

    Yeah, you'll have as much luck getting rid of that as you would getting rid of stretch marks unfortunately.

    Like PP's listed, there's a few things that can help fade it a little bit, but time will also fade it as well. It will never go away though.

    Jump for Joy I think I found something

    It's a scar cream that helps with texture, color and length. Feels great, doesn't smell, dries super fast... Anyway- so far - I am way optimistic. It's actually prescription. If anyone wants more details - just let me know. THANK YOU to those who replied... Have a great holiday!

    soooo.. does this just fade it, or is it removing it.. because to my knowledge you can't actually 'remove' a scar... you can fade it to wear it is very difficult to see... but you can't ever get rid of it.

    What everyone else said. It's been five years since my c section and although it has faded a lot over time, it will never completely go away.
