Question Can Stretch Marks.........

Be surgically removed? I have very large 6" + 1" scars all over my hips and tummy.I almost would rather them be sutured and be left with a thin line to deal with.Any thoughts?

I asked my PS this very question at my last PO appointment. He said "Save your money, there is nothing you can do." He basically said, if there was something out there that truly worked - it would be a billion dollar industry and we would all know about it. He said some PS' claim laser works but he said there has not been one study to prove that it works, but there have been studies to prove it doesn't work. I know...not what you wanted to hear. There are couple of ladies on this site that swear Strivectin helpd diminish the appearance. I might give it try - it couldn't hurt.

Just out of curiosity, can they lazer stretch marks?? I know they can do stuff like that with freckles & skin discoloration, is there something like that for stretch marks too?

My PS said the lasers do not work. The way he explained it is stretch marks are inverted scars so it wouldn't work.
