How can I get rid of post-pregnancy stretch marks?
Q: I am 28 years old and had put on a lot of weight during my pregnancy. Eventually, I lost all the weight, but I have developed stretch marks all over my body. They are more severe on my stomach. I have got dermabrasion, peels/lasers and even abdominoplasty done for the marks, but nothing has helped. Is there any way to get rid of these marks?
A:Yes after pregnancy you will have stretch marks and then the loose skin adds to the problems. You have already undergone an abdominoplasty as you say, in which I’m sure you must have got rid of most of the stretch marks. Now the only marks that remain must be the ones above your umbilicus which has now moved down. Lasers don’t work as far as present knowledge goes. Light superficial peels do not work. The only thing which might work is deep chemical peels, which are given by plastic surgeons. So please meet any plastic surgeon close to you and work out the details.
