Just mix Vitamin E oil in with your regular moisturizer. The marks will fade and your skin will tighten in no time.

thanx, I am using vit e oil on the scars, and it seems to be fading them really well. The Striae cream is supposed regenerate i guess the colagen that is lost with the stretch marks. I have already ordered it and will give it a try, i have a really good surgeon and he states it really works, so we'll see.

I haven't, but if it works I'll sure give it a try! Of course, I'd need to get a vat of it and soak my entire body, but if it works...

How was your overall experience with the lift?

I'm with you, i'm first going to try it on my breast and if it works i've got lots of other areas as well. It says it'll take about 6wks to see a difference, and it's an 8oz tube for $60, let's see how long it lasts, i'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will work. I'll update on it.

As for my experience with the lift, it was really good. He did an amazing job, i am so happy i did, i just wish i would have been able to have done this so much sooner. As far as pain goes, i have to say, didn't experience too much of it, i was more misserable with the fact that i had to sleep on my back, and i got a sinus infection a few days after my surgery, so those two things were worse than the actual pain.

I would highly recommend to anyone that is thinking about having this done to do it, it is soooooo worth it. I am 40yrs and i can't remember my girls ever looking as perky as they do now. I've always been big on top
D-DD's, i'm a D now, but they are a perky D .

I will also be having a tummy-tuck in 2 weeks, i don't have much of a stomach, just alot of stretch marks i'm hoping to get rid of. Hopefully i will be just as pleased with this surgery as well

I'm only 25, but between getting hugely pregnant and nursing for a year my breasts have seen better days. Right now I'm a size 10/12 and I wear a 34DDD bra...it's not pretty.

I'm kind of in the same boat as you when it comes to my tummy. I don't have a lot of fat, just extra skin and stretch marks galore! I never would have thought one child could do this to a body. He's worth it, though!

I'm so glad to hear you say it's worth it. I've got a bit more weight to lose and then plastic surgery, here I come!!

Yeap! And if it's something you really want, don't let anyone talk you out of it. I am a size 7, i weigh 135lbs, but was up to 200lb with my pregnancies, and boy did they take a toll on my body.

I've always been really confident about my looks........that is with clothes on, a good bra did wonders, however never liked looking at myself naked, my b/f always said i'm crazy and theres nothing wrong with my body but, i hated looking at my breast naked, you know?, Now, i can't stop looking at them, im so impressed, can't believe they can look as good as they do.

You are really young, i hope you are able to have it done way before 40, i so wish i could've had this done when i was in my 20's, or 30's.........i shouldn't complain though, i'm 40 with 20yr girls.

You sound like a friend of mine--she's 45 and just had a reduction. Her girls are GORGEOUS!!! I never would have imagined that 45 year old breasts could be that perky without an implant. Her dr. was a little weird (he told her to use Crisco on her scars...), but he did a fabulous job.

I'm so excited (and jealous) right now...maybe that'll motivate me to get my butt in gear and drop the rest of this weight. I'm newly divorced and I gotta hook me a hottie!
