Cosmetic Surgery Treatments for Stretch Marks

Stretch marks, medically called striae, usually appear after rapid stretching of the skin, according to MedlinePlus and the Mayo Clinic. Moms are especially prone to stretch marks, either caused by pregnancy or the resulting weight changes. Many creams and other treatments that are sold over-the-counter are ineffective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks. If they do not go away over time and the appearance disturbs you, you might investigate some of the available cosmetic surgeries that can help eliminate stretch marks.
