We all dislike stretch marks, right but then it is a helpless situation where we cannot do much about the marks as they occur as soon as we gain weight or we lose weight. Stretch marks are nearly impossible to remove, as they can remain there for a lifetime, it can only be made less visible. However, best way to get rid of them is to start the treatment as soon as you see the red or purplish lines on your body. The red capillaries are the sign that stretch marks have just started appearing, thus can be controlled after taking care of the lines.

Or else, once they turn white, it is impossible to remove them.

Similarly, Irene Packham, a 47-year-old woman who wanted to go for a tummy tuck operation did not know that she would come out with a bigger problem. She decided to go for the operation to get rid of stretch marks and extra skin on her body. Irene decided to go to the best cosmetic surgeon thus she ended up contacting Anita Hazari from Chaucer Hospital.

Things didn’t go in Anita’s favor, as Irene sued her for the cosmetic surgery that caused her left her with scars on her abdomen and the area she got operated. Irene got the operation done in September 2009, after which she suffered from some severe pain in the area and lot of stretch marks.

Irene was surprised when she got rid of her dressing, as it had left her with scars and burning sensation. She was very disappointed with the operation that left her in deep pain as she was shocked that after getting the treatment done form a top surgeon. She had not expected such result from one of the best surgeon. Thus, she decided to sue the doctor.

However, when Irene appeared in the court, she made it clear that she is not blaming Anita that she was negligent in the operation procedure but she said that being the doctor she should have clearly told about the consequences. Irene also added that had she been told about such result then she would have not have opted for the tummy tuck procedure.

Thus, this is the fine example of not falling for such treatment that promise of the best results, as it might not help you. One thing you must remember is that Stretch marks can never go away, they will always stay with you, and you will have to accept it. You can only lighten it or minimize its appearance and nothing more than that.

Hence, it is better firstly you go for the normal treatments that even show the slight difference and if then nothing else works you can take help from your doctor and go for the laser treatments that have proven to be useful.
