Stretch mark treatment before or after?

I have some loose skin I want to have lifted like on my inner thighs but also from previous weight gain I have a lot of stretch marks. Will I get better results if I treat the stretch marks before or after a lift?

I suggest treating stretch marks after a lift, as some of this skin will be removed. There is no "cure" for stretch marks but lasers, microneedling and skin care can give significant improvement. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
