When I finally lost the last 20 pounds, I thought I had it made. I expected to be lean and healthy, attractive and universally desirable. I was still in my early 20s, so I figured that I had plenty of time as a young person to attract the attention of the opposite sex. There was one thing, however, that I had not figured on – stretch marks.
I tried everything that I could think of for stretch marks removal, but nothing worked. There are all kinds of products for removing stretch marks, so apparently it is a pretty common problem. There are stretch mark removal creams, lotions, potions, unctions, and anything else that you can name. There are even herbal supplements out there that are supposed to aid with stretch marks removal. Believe me, I tried everything. I even tried the stuff that sounds pretty hokey. I was so desperate to have the stretch marks removed, you see, that I couldn’t give up.
I guess to understand where I am coming from, you have to know what a crushing blow the stretch marks were to me. I had never been thin and beautiful, but I had always wanted to be. I didn’t want to have to deal with stretch marks removal. I figured that when I was thin, it would be almost like starting over. It seemed like quite a few people couldn’t recognize me, so why did I have those awful stretch marks to remind me of what I used to be? If it was such a common problem, how come all of the stretch marks removal products didn’t work? I was getting desperate quickly, and I needed a solution!
Finally, I started looking at surgical removal of stretch marks. Surgical stretch marks removal may sound drastic to some people, but I was almost ready to consider it. I don’t really understand how it works, and I’m not sure that I want to. The image that I get in my head is of them cutting up my skin, cutting out large pieces, and stitching the remaining bits back together. The parts with the stretch marks would be all gone, and the rest of the skin would be knit a little bit tighter. It kind of makes me cringe just to think about surgical stretch marks removal. It seems so extreme, after all, and I don’t see how all my skin could take the strain. I don’t really know what I am going to do.
