I'm afraid stretch marks don't ever completly disappear. They fade but you will always have marks. Some women get stretch marks while others don't. It all depends on the elasticity of your skin. No amount of cream, no matter how expensive will remove them.I was lucky enough not to get them on my stomach, but I do have them on my breasts. Its just one of those things that we women have to bear!

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Drink plenty of water and cut down on caffeine. Consume foods rich in zinc, such as nuts or fish; vitamins A and C rich foods, such as carrots and citrus fruits and milk; protein-rich foods, such as eggs. All these help to reduce the stretch marks. OTC lotions and gels are available to apply on the stretch marks. Ask your skin specialist to recommend one best suited for you after viewing your stretch marks. Exercise to tone up your muscles. This will tone up your skin too. Gentle stretching exercises will also help. Consult a skin specialist once. Avoid sudden weight gain and weight loss. Test your thyroid level once. Take care!
