When leaving the shower, you may notice stretch marks you have never seen before. How did these stretch marks form? The cause of these unsightly skin flaws is a tear in the dermis, the layer of your skin beneath the surface.

There are a lot of ways in which the dermis can be ruptured. The most common cause is rapid weight change. Massive changes in your body weight place a large amount of stress on the skin. If it is not given the proper amount of time to stretch into its new shape, the dermis will tear and form a stretch mark in the skin.

At My Plastic Surgery Group, we offer several highly effective treatments that can significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
