My pregnancy has been a blessed and beautiful time, but I am looking forward to getting back in shape. One problem that I am worried about reversing all the stretch marks that have formed on my belly. Can fat injections be used to smooth out my stretch marks?
Stretch marks are one of the more common complaints that we are seeing in our office. Stretch marks represent a change in the actual skin where the stretch marks have appeared. Fat injections have not shown significant benefit in the improvement of stretch marks. What has shown real promise is the use of the fractionated erbium laser. In our practice we use the Fraxel laser for this purpose. The Fraxel laser requires approximately 4-5 treatments and our patients have been very pleased with the reduction in the appearance of their stretch marks.
