Can appear anywhere on the body skin has been stretched, in males and females. The majority of people have them, but regardless, they cause most people shame and emotional distress. Some people choose to make the best of them and wear them as type of badge of honor.
While lotions and creams haven't been proven to be totally effective in removing stretch marks, they can be removed through surgery. Arm lifts can remove ones on the arm; breast lifts can remove some on the breast; tummy tucks can removed the ones on the stomach and hips; and thigh lifts can remove the ones on the inner thigh. Ones not removed by surgery (i.e.-breasts, butt, back of knees, etc.) can possibly be removed by laser, however; there is no gurantee.
When they first appear they are red and purple and can be engraved indented, stretch marks will fade out with time,
They are Caused from pregnancy/with sudden growth sperts and when repid weight loss Or gain occurs, basically they appear when there is not enough skin, or to much skin, for your weight!
Stretch marks are like scars in the respect that they will never completely disappear,
Things like bio-oil and coco nut oil do help fade them,
The only stretch marks that can be removed are the ones on the stomach, They can be removed with a tummy tuck,
The ones on your breats can be removed with a breast reduction or breast lift/ and on the ones on arms may me amendable, but will leave severe scaring from the operation
Also if you are a normal weight and havent had a sudden change in body shape or anything, see your dr and ask for a blood test to make sure your stretch marks arent appearing because of something to do with your hormons,
Go to the dr now befor you get anymore
To all the women out there Don't worry they do fade!!!
