Natural methods, stretch mark creams and lotions and stretch mark removal surgery are treatments used in dealing with stretch marks. Some people have opted for the surgeries in getting rid of the stretch marks and this has been attributed to the argument that laser treatment is not very effective. There have been many arguments raised on laser treatment, with many plastic surgeons arguing that laser treatment is best in removing, vaporizing and breaking down tissues. They argue that it does not repair tissues, hence they advocate for stretch mark removal surgery.
Is stretch mark removal surgery safe?
Stretch mark removal surgery is the most effective method in dealing with stretch marks. It gets rid of stretch marks permanently and no need for future treatments as opposed to laser treatment, which requires three to five treatments. “Tummy tuck” is the main procedure used when it comes to surgeries and it also referred to as Abdominoplasty. It is used in tightening abdominal muscles and also removes excess skin in the mid to lower abdominal areas. However, this option is only limited to those patients that qualify for the tummy tuck procedure. This means that that there are parts of the body, which may never be treated with the surgical procedure.
In order for a patient to be eligible for this procedure, one has to be in good health; he/she does not smoke and has an excessive amount of skin on the tummy. The worst thing about stretch mark removal surgery is that it causes scarring, which may be worse than the stretch marks themselves. In addition, this procedure may require a longer recovery time as compared to the other options. Despite the few pros, the patient is assured that the stretch marks will be removed completely.
How much does the surgical procedure cost?
Cost is a factor that is greatly taken into consideration when it comes to getting rid of stretch marks. However, the cost of stretch mark removal surgery varies depending on the severity of the scars and technique used. The surgical procedure is the most effective, hence it will cost the most as opposed to the natural remedies and laser treatment. In a deeper understanding, laser treatment involves more than one treatment sessions, thus in total the cost is similar to the surgical procedure.
Microdermabrasion is another technique used in treating stretch marks. It involves making use of tiny crystals in getting rid of the top layers of the skin. However, it has not been considered to be very effective. For better results, it is used hand in hand with the other stretch mark removal techniques.
Information on Endermologie
Basically, endermologie was started with the aim of softening scars. An endermologie machine is used in massaging the affected area while the rollers are used in containing the stretch marks. However, for better results, the procedure requires more than one treatment session. Endermologie has been reported to increase blood circulation in the body and helps in removing harmful toxins from the body. In conclusion, the stretch mark removal surgery is the permanent solution for stretch marks.
