Cosmetic Procedures For Stretch Removal....A Guide For The New Mothers

Aug 18, 2007
A generation of women have been taught by their mothers to remain content by looking at the face of their new born children and forget about all the cosmetic woes that come as the natural parts of a pregnancy package---the tummy, the sagging skin, the veins in certain parts of the body, hair fall and above all the ugly stretch marks on the abdomen, breast, upper arms or thighs that experience an out of the proportion weight gain followed by a sudden weight loss.

For many women, stretch marks become a source of life long agony, as stretch marks can not be corrected by mere post-pregnancy weight loss programs. You have become a mom that does not mean you will stop wearing swim wears, low hung jeans or sleeve less tops in fear of exposing those ugly marks in certain parts of the body. It is somewhat a primitive conception that you will continue to be just a mother after giving birth to your child. You have every right to stay and dress glamorous as before. Just look at the likes of Madonna, Cindy Crawford or Catherine Zeta Jones and how they maintain their looks.

Remaining attractive even after child birth is a challenge, but it is neither magic, nor impossible. It is a matter of science and you should be well informed as to how to use it to your best advantage. So far as the issue of getting post-pregnancy stretch marks is concerned, there are a number of topical solutions available in the market that claims to remove your stretch marks. But unfortunately most of them are only temporary. If you want to get rid of the unsightly appearance of stretch marks once and for all, you have to go for cosmetic procedures. Here are the brief descriptions of some of the major cosmetic procedures of stretch mark removal.

Laser surgery
The permanent and effective cosmetic solution that has come up in recent times is laser therapy. This is a quick and easy procedure without needs of any recovery time. It involves use of a concentrated beam of light over the stretch marks. As the skin layer is removed, so is the stretch mark. Its efficacy lies in its ability to repair the skin's natural synthesis of collagen and stimulate renewed growth of depleted collagen and blue light therapy is almost similar to this procedure; here a gel is applied along with blue light for stretch marks removal.
Any light therapy works best on the brown or reddish streaks that are in early stages of development. Its outcome is not guaranteed on old stretch marks that have acquired silver-gray colors.

Plastic surgery is another means of permanent removal of your stretch marks. Cosmetic surgery of tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is performed to tighten the skin and muscles of the stomach wall. This requires the removal of scarred skin and as the damaged skin is removed, so go the stretch marks appearing below the belly button.

This cosmetic procedure involves scrubbing of tiny particles against the skin to remove the epidermal layers of the skin. As the skin is removed, so removed are the stretch marks and other scars.

So before blowing off your fortune on different variety of stretch mark removal creams, consider trying one of these cosmetic procedures. Stop carrying the signs of pregnancy as your lifelong partner; enjoy motherhood without any complain resulting from the process of carrying and giving birth to your little cherub.
