With a tummy tuck stretch marks can be removed from the lower abdomen; belly button to pubic area.  Other parts of the body are not amenable to surgical removal and can be treated with microneedling/PRP, laser, or other mode or resurfacing.

That's a really difficult location! Stretch marks are scars, and so the only way to remove them completely is to excise them. Of course, the location of your stretch marks makes them difficult to remove (unlike the ones around a belly button that can be removed with a tummy tuck). Fortunately, the stretch marks are gentle and not that unattractive, but you might want to consider laser treatment or another non-surgical option to treat (but not permanently erase) those marks.
