Does anyone else have an "invisible" scar?

My c-section was almost 19 months ago. My skin incision was closed with glue. I've had a subsequent pregnancy since then, and now, my scar is nearly invisible. I have to look REALLY REALLY hard to see it. The red line that my still-loose-and-fat belly skin makes in its hanging over is WAY more prominent than my c-section scar. I expected it to fade over time, but I am surprised that it's nearly disappeared entirely.

My scars faded after 6 and 4 years (roughly) since I last saw them, but I wouldn't call them barely noticeable. They are smoother now but not invisible. I never tried to get completely rid of them though. I suppose I could have used vitamin E and got rid of them but it wasn't important to me. I see them as marks of pride!

I've had 2 c-sections, and the scar faded almost completely both times. I really had to LOOK to see it by a year or so PP.
