I gave birth to my son 3 months ago. I lost 26 lbs right after. But the flab isn't going away. I had terrible stretch marks during my pregnancy that now make my belly look wrinkly. I need some help to get my flat tummy back to normal. Any advice?

My son is almost 4 months old.. I had a lot of stretch marks before I got pregnant. I knew I was going to get more! Before I got pregnant I had laser treatments on the stretch marks on my inner thighs ..expensive but it works ! They will never fully go away, but I feel like it made them smoother and closer to the surface of my skin. Also lightened them up quite a bit. Now I am stuck with ugly marks all over my belly and sides and I'm thinking of either doing laser or covering with a tattoo eventually.

Give yourself some time! It's only 3 months since you gave birth. Stretch marks are from your skin (deep layers) tearing so won't just disappear. They may never go away if they are really deep either.

Your skin takes time to go back as well. Think of how much it had to stretch during the pregnancy.
