Tummy Tuck: Obviously a firm recommendation could only come after a thorough evaluation but the only treatment for stretch marks is to cut them out.

You should consider radiofrequency and Platelet Rich plasm. Radiofrequency can minimize the stretch marks and the PRP enhances the tightening that RF does and improves the texture of the skin

No: Stretch marks are caused by the breakdown of collagen in your skin. Collagens are proteins and proteins are not fungus.
