I will tell you I DO STILL have my stretch marks also but it is SOOOO much different with the extra skin gone.. Look at my photos. I had a LOT and when I would lean forward ( need to get a mental picture) I would have the tumm hanging that reminded me of a mama dog that had a LOT of litters.... I mean I would literally have two flaps hanging  ancored in the center by the Belly button if that makes any sence. But with the skin tight and the "loose" removed the remaining marks really ar not a big deal AT ALL. I have a Belly Button again and so will you. If you have any questions PM me... the marks will get red with the initial swelling of the TT but then they fade.. even my DARK ones really are no big deal now.... I LOVE my tummy and I think you will too. Palmers oil DOES help soften things so I do still use it on my scars... but one year later (almost) I would TOTALLY do it again!

I still have my stretch marks but without all of that loose skin under them I think they are actually quite fine. Think of them as tattoos with better stories behind them :-)

I had some stretch marks, but all were removed and my new belly button is nice to boot. If your doctor says some may remain, then believe him. Remember, you're also going to have a massive scar across your lower abdomen/hips. A few stretch marks will be a lot more attractive than that. Remember... lingerie, lingerie, lingerie will cover any stretch marks and fit great!

The stretch marks I had above my bellybutton are still there but are so low now that a bathingsuit should cover most of them. Also some dermatologist offer a laser therapy to lessen the appearance of them. They don't take them away completely but can help depending on how deep they are.
