Stretch Marks - Desperate
Please advise if there is a way of having strech marks removed through plastic surgery or laser treatment. I have the most revolting stretch marks and have been using vitamin E oil for years with no success - please help.

Dear Stretchy,

There is nothing that can remove stretch marks totally at present. Lasertreatment and microdermabrasion, as well as a light chemical peel and/or other creams might improve the stretchmarks. I suggest you see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon for advice.
