    Default Effing ab stretch marks ??

    Hey all - curious if any of you suffer from abdominal stretch marks and any tips/tricks for stage ?

    I've had FIVE abdominal surgeries (two C Sections and 3 for other female related mega issues)....regardless....I have stretch marks and this lil pooch of loose skin.

    Last comp we taped the low ab area (sorta comical to accomplish..AND not have any tape showing/peaking out of the suit! Then prey not to sneeze and have a blowout!! LOL

    The hope was that after staying lean for a long duration, this would improve....it did a smidge, but not greatly. My DREAM fix is to surgically get it fixed...but not in the budget in the near future.............

    So......anyone else suffer from this and any insight as to how you better present your hard work on stage LESS the stupid stretch marks and pooch of loose skin??

    Any judges out there ? Does this effect placings?

    Thanks!!

    Did you start with the Strivectin right after the C-sections? If so, that's why the scar are almost gone. I'm highly skeptical of it doing anything for old stretch marks. Stretch marks and surgery scars are totally different.

    And to answer the original question...there is nothing (other than surgery) that will rid you of stretch marks and loose skin.
