Placebo Comparator: Standard Dressing
Obese patients undergoing cesarean section in this arm will receive a standard island-type dressing

All patient will be evaluated by the visiting nurse on postoperative day 4 or 5 and have their wounds photographed. All patients will be contacted for a brief survey 6 weeks postpartum.
- Number of Patients Who Experience One or More Wound Complications [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]A composite of cellulitis, wound dehiscence, seroma, hematoma, abscess, and fascial dehiscence from wound evaluation at any point within six weeks, as pulled from the medical record or based on patient report.
- Febrile Morbidity [ Time Frame: 2 days, 6 weeks ]Febrile morbidity would be measured by number of participants who experienced fever as a sign of infection at 2 days, and overall within 6 weeks of delivery.
- Patient Report of Pain Severity and Control [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]Self Reported pain, on a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is little pain and 10 is extreme pain
