Dear Susan,
The best thing to do about most stretch marks is to stretch them out. The best way to do that is to have
an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. That is a significant procedure and should be done primarily to remove
excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Stretch marks are due to he elastic fibers in your skin stretching to the point that they break with no way to repair them. Maybe someone will discover a way one day. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
