Will a Tummy Tuck work for Stretch Mark Treatment?

My weight loss over the past year has been close to 100 pounds. I am getting a tummy tuck to help with my loose skin but will that also help with my stretch marks? I hope that it does but if it doesn’t should I add another procedure to get those taken care of at the same time?

Currently, the only way to effectively remove stretch marks is with a tummy tuck.  This procedure usually will remove all of the skin and stretch marks below your belly button.  Unfortunately, stretch marks in the upper abdomen will not be removed.  But in most people, this area isn't as bad as the lower abdomen.  You are right to pursue having a tummy tuck! Best of luck!
