Tummy tuck to remove stretch marks

Hi - a tummy tuck usually removes all the stretch marks below the tummy button - the ones above this level usually remain.

How much can be removed depends partially on how much excess skin there is. The stretch marks below the belly button can usually be removed, but above the belly button usually have to remain. The only way to know for sure is to book a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon near you to see what your options are. Best of luck!
