    In all honesty, If you're 5ft8+ , good jawline and slim, you've got a good chance. 99% of the models we see are photo shopped anyway so scars and stretch marks are not really a huge problem.

    Where are these marks?

    All photos of models are air brushed/shopped beyond recognition these days anyway. If your key facial features/figure is good they will probably not mind all that much, who knows.

    Only way to know is to try.

    As long as you have the height, bone structure and body type the scars and stretch marks don't matter. They photo shop those things out. No models have perfect skin.

    You could still model with scars and stretch marks so long as you are tall enough. Though even still don't be under the illusion that modelling is an easy career to get into.

    depends what your modelling for.

    also it doesn't really matter.

    you're modelling. its how the garment fits you first and how you carry your self and engage with the camera.

    depends on the scar.
    stretch marks not a problem. that can be photoshopped.

    but a big scar down the side of your face... no.

    OP I'd say go for it. I'm pretty sure most models, even though they seem flawless probably have imperfections so don't let anything you have put you off

    Like the other posters said various editing and makeup techniques are used so it should be an easily rectifiable issue

    :rofl:

    In all seriousness though OP, it never hurts to try! If you've ticked all the other boxes then a few scars or so won't/shouldn't hinder you.
