There is no surgery for stretch marks. There are procedures like laser and microneedling. Creams are available as well but their effectiveness is lesser than procedures. There are many over the counter products available in cosmetic stores. I can neither vouch for or condemn any particular product. A dermatologist will be able to prescribe medicines that help for stretch marks. Generally anti ageing products containing retinol or tretinoin are helpful in reducing stretch marks. Aloevera and vitamin E containing creams also help in stretch marks. Hormonal problems like cushings disease, hypothyroidism and PCOD can also cause stretch marks. Please get yourself evaluated for these problems if you have gained a lot of weight in the last few months (6-8months). Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
