  • Nope. Once they're there --- that's it. They are there forever.

    They'll fade over time & won't be as noticable to the eye, but they'll always be there & you'll always feel them.

    A tummy tuck gets rid of the ones below the belly button --- but beyond that, learn to love them.

  • surgery. seriously, they are there to stay. it's an urban myth that any product can help since they are genetically given to us by our parents.
