Hi Icha, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Caesarean section scar whether closed with thread (using subcutis suture), plaster, or with glue there is no difference. All three can provide a minimal appearance of lined scars. Using other sewing methods or using staples to cover the wound can cause a bigger scar (not just lines).
Apart from the methods used to cover the wound, skin healing for each person can also vary. Some people are more prone to hypertrophic or keloid scars, so that the surgical cut can be large and protruding beyond the cut line. If there is this vulnerability, even if the scar is closed with glue, it will still cause a large scar.
If the surgery has been done since July, then by now your wound should be dry and closed properly. It doesn't really matter whether the wound is closed by suturing with thread, tape, or glue, because even if the thread is used, it should have been absorbed by the skin at this time (if using absorbable thread) or pulled out (if using thread that is not skin-absorbable). If you use plaster or glue, within 2 months usually the plaster and glue have peeled off by themselves.
If you experience certain complaints regarding your surgical scar, you can consult your gynecologist again.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
