You can get rid of them by buying the services of a good plastic surgeon.


Any product just fades them... (as does time!)

No, no surgery. That's not gonna happen I thought some products make them disappear? Anyway, if it jsut fades them away, that's alright. I don't know of any product, so a name would be helpful.

I don't think there is any such product, unfortunately. Some people say cocoa butter works, but I've never stuck with it long enough to see a difference. I have them on my hips (got them around 13, when my hips expanded I suppose), and they don't trouble me too much, but I am NOT looking forward to pregnancy! Anyway, maybe you should just learn to love them as a part of your body? But if you hear of anything good, do let me know....

I think it's pretty much a lie (about the products) to get you to spend.

I don't know if doing something DURING pregnancy helps. I'd say a lot of it is just genetics and the roll of the dice. My best friend had HUGE babies and gained a lot of weight with each kid. She has virtually no stretch marks. I had one big baby and one "normal" sized and gained a lot with one and not a lot at all with the other. I have stretch marks galore.

They do fade a lot with time.

Some Scar creams are suppose to work, but I am with Mojo in that I never stick with it long enough to find out. I had two c-sections and I didn't have any stretch marks during my pregnancy until they strectched open the skin to take my son! I got more with my daughter.

These are crisscrossed an not at all like a normal pregnancy stretch mark.

My stomach is really smart-it looks like a brain. ha ha --Crying.

Its genetics - nothing will prevent it.
If you dont want surgery - lasers will work - but very expensive

You don't get rid of them. Not everyone gets them, it depends on your genetic predisposition. You can't get rid of them. You can let them fade, and that minimizes the look. But once they're there, they're there.
