Laser surgery to remove stretch marks

Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery to remove stretch marks


Avatar n tn Jamila: Stretch marks are very hard to remove. They start out red and gradually lighten over time. Be skeptical of claims for creams, exercises, vitamins, and lasers which people claim as effective. You need rose-colored glasses to think they are. best. Dr.
Avatar f tn Surgical/ interventional modes such as laser are the only effective method of stretch mark removal. If planning to have the stretch marks lasered, it would be best to consult a dermatologist for suggestion of an appropriate management plan. Hope this is helpful. Take care!

Avatar n tn There are many creams, oils, and rubs that claim to remove these unsightly lines, but can only help to reduce the look of stretch marks. One option to remove or greatly lessen the appearance of stretch marks is laser surgery. Though very costly, it is really a very simple treatment and side effects are rare.The procedure itself consists of a concentrated beam of light that travels along the stretch marks, removing extraordinarily thin layers of skin.

Avatar f tn I waited about 10 months to have the cataract surgery though because I wanted to make sure the surgery eye had "settled down" inside as much as it could after surgery. (my retina swelling as shown on the post surgery OCT's went down some, but then stabilized at about 380=still thicker than normal but seems to be the best it's getting) . Also, I wanted the time to research Cataract specialists and went to 6 for consultations before I found the one that I wanted to do the surgery.
Avatar f tn I honestly thought I was the only one because I had throat surgery when I was a baby (born with a deviated septum and double uvula) and I believed that something must have gone wrong during surgery and my ability to burp was damaged. It's actually quite amazing to find that I'm not alone. haha! Anyway, I used to suffer tremendously....the gurgles were aggravating, but after that stage it would turn to terribly painful hiccups. For years I treated it with green olives. HAHA...
685623 tn?1283485207 Cats will sink their claws into a variety of inanimate objects in order to stretch, to mark territory, to sharpen the claws and to removed the outer layer of the claw that may be flaking away slowing. Pet owners report that cats seem to prefer certain fabrics when scratching (such as the easy to destroy vertical weave of many draperies!). Cats, of course, will also use their claws as a defenses mechanism, swatting at opponents or raking with their rear claws.
162948 tn?1205256292 When i had sex with my husband on the Friday and Saturday before removal it hurt him and me so thats why i went to get it checked and they had to remove it. So The IUD is good for some people and bad for others. My opinion.
Avatar f tn When laser is done close to the central vision ophthalmologists use different color light beams to minimize damage or use the new photodynamic process (Visudyne) or for neovascular degeration use VEGF inhibitors which are not laser at all. 4. I would not worry about too much laser. Your eye surgeons (ophthalmologists) will use only what they need to stabalize your retina. (some diabetics get over 2000-3000 laser marks on their retina and function fine. 5.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
485259 tn?1519050626 Thanks for all the great advice ladies. My surgery is scheduled for Nov 18th to remove 4 large dermoids from my left ovary, 1 smaller one from my right, and I'm having a hysteroscopy. I'm hoping that my dr will be able to remove everything via laproscopy but I have a feeling he will probably have to switch to laprotomy (sp?). We were TTC when they were discovered so I'm hoping that none of my ovaries will have to be removed.
Avatar n tn It is completely embarrassing and I refuse to be intimate with the lights on because of it. I cannot afford laser surgery. I am just more interested in how to get rid of the scarring for now. Does anyone have any good products besides bio oil?
Avatar f tn I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with this condition and that perhaps there is some way to remove it. To those of you who have had the surgery, was it done under general anesthesia or local? Good luck everybody!
Avatar n tn i can never wear a bikini because of this also the stretch marks on the side of my stomach they seem to be getting worse. i dont really know what to do. It feels like im the only one like this. i see other girls in the pools and they look perfectly fine. and how i wish i had that kind of body. somebody please help me fix this problem. i want to be a beautiful girl with no worrys about having hairs in my stomach or having stretch marks. i also worry because i think my boyfriend wont like it.
Avatar n tn Trust me, guys don't notice little things, or if they do they don't care. I have really really white stretch marks all over my thighs, and I have really skinny legs too so I always thought they ruined my legs. I used to play volleyball and I was self conscious but I realized all girls have imperfections. Guys really won't care as long as you're confident.
Avatar n tn Plus my stretch marks seemed to get huge they're remembering the pregnancies! LOL. Please tell me that this is worth the pain and money!
Avatar n tn I had the surgery that went through my navel to laser off the cyst. So, I only have a micro scar above the hole if my navel (innie). When I had been diagnosed with endometriosis I had similar discomfort around my navel, along with other symptoms (vomiting after intercourse, heavy periods, painful periods and the discomfort of the navel area). I have been on the pill since, but now am trying to get pregnant so have been off since last year.
Avatar n tn Once I got the thyroid problem under control with pretty high doses of Synthroid, the weight started to come off. However, the skin was indeed sagging and stretch marks appeared ... Exercise helped a little with the sagging. Nevertheless, in a panic, I started reading the rejuvenation litterature ... As a result, I began a regimen of Vit. B12 injections and testosterone. I also take Collagen tablets, Vit. E and various other supplements.
Avatar n tn Now I have just come to accept the condition and though I have not lost hope, I feel it's easier to make the best of everyday without taking progessive measures to fix the eye. I'm out of options, other than surgery. It's easier on the mind to not get hopes up to be let down everytime, too.
Avatar m tn I am seeing a chiropractor now who has modern equipment to promote healing, i.e. a cold laser, electronic acupuncture, and a machine to decrease inflammation, plus lots of other things. And I will continue with my ice milk soaks to decrease inflammation and help skin. I am also looking to see what can be used as a skin mask directly on the area to replace some of the collagen, fat, and elastin that has been depleted by the steroids, i.e. smashed avocado, yogurt.
Avatar f tn They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar n tn You must remember though that this is not a weight loss thing, this procedure only removes small areas of difficult to remove fat, however, I'm sure you can get lots of areas done but it will cost you a fortune. I'm very happy with the results. I am 46 years old and my body shape has not changed since I was 18years old, except for a slightly bulging tummy and love handles, which I was the only one to notice, this was from having 2 children.
Avatar f tn I'm only 17 and im trying to find out answers. after my 18th birthday i want to go get surgery done because of it . I want to be able to walk around in cute little bikinis like all the other girls. But I can't :( yeah youre right people don't understand lol. it's embarassing. nothing seems to look right. It *****! I want to be able to just walk around in my underwear if i wanted to and not be so self conscious. Urghh. It's terrrible.
Avatar n tn Well I am going to be scheduled to go in for surgery in the next couple weeks to put this pain to an end. The surgeon that I saw said that it is absolutely time to remove the problem. What he said is that they will go in and locate the root of the infection and take that out. Then they will have to scrape any of the tissue that is severly damaged. Yes it is going to be painful, but I am willing to take a couple weeks of pain if this thing never comes back.
Avatar n tn Her bone density scans were marginally okay. Three weeks ago she underwent surgery to remove a soft lateral meniscal cyst on inner side of right knee (larger than a ping pong ball). A week ago Dr put her on Vit. D 50,000 IU x1 per week and daily calcium supplement. She was getting better until the last 2 days. Last night, after a short visit to the mall she was crying in pain. Recent MRI of her spine has revealed disc problems in L4 L5. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have gone PAST my 6th treatment, which when I signed up they told me 6 treatments was all I'd need. I am now on my 8th treatment and 10 months later......I have gained inches - not lost.........and gained pounds also with this (15 lbs at least). I have contacted them and noone seems to want to talk about this "Guarantee refund - money back". I even saw the "main" doctor there who also told me he saw no results either....just give me more shots. I just want my money back...
Avatar f tn Remember though that you've had minor surgery on a part of your body where nerves have been upset, and like every surgery, you have to let the body heal itself. All of a sudden you will wake up and realize that you have a tiny little bit more sensation than you did the day before, and then the next week it will feel like a tiny bit more has come back, and so on and so on. It takes time but the body is a very complex machine. Remember.....the itchy crawly feeling is a good sign!
298579 tn?1192250448 I am 26 and have this same problem for probably two years, extreme cramping instantly and bowel movement. I too have asked doctors and they tell me nothing. Its not just normal cramping like some people say above. It is so extreme I try to avoid all sex. I cannot avoid it however when it happens in dreams and I wake up in so much pain. The only thing I have seen that helps the pain is an herbal wrap that you heat up(you can get them @ walmart), and I lay that on my stomach.
Avatar n tn About a year and a half ago (maybe more) i discovered a lump on my left testicle, then later on another one on my right. Whenni was finally able to make it to the doctors he diagnosed it as a varicocele. The odd thing about my condition is that it would see to come and go, and i also had lower abdominal pain, which the doctor suggested my be a hernia. i was referred to a urologist and he said yes i have a varicole and that he saw no sign of a hernia. i also told him about further symptoms (i.e.
