Just after pregnancy many women experience scarring on the sides of their body. Almost 3 in 4 women experience stretch mark scarring post pregnancy. They also experience belly stretch marks. This is also associated with obesity, puberty, short term weight gain from body building and other physical activities.
The reason of these scars is due to the fact that the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity gets more stretched than it can tolerate.
