Audience member Wanita tells Dr. Oz that she had twins five years ago and asks Dr. Oz how to get rid of stretch marks.

Dr. Oz references the various shows that he has done which look at general cosmetic issues without doing major surgery, and he notes that there have been major technologies that help with this. 

These technologies include applied chemicals which lighten the affected areas, abrasion techniques, and tummy tucks. 

Dr. Oz notes the monetary cost behind some of these practices, and the fact that women need to make sure they lose the weight they want off of themselves before some drastic measures are taken to get the desired effect. 

Dr. Oz reiterates that women must recognize that the rate at which they gained the weight should reflect the rate at which they lose it.
