Also known as excision: this is where the patch of skin which contains the tattoo is, literally, cut out. As you might imagine this is a drastic means of tattoo removal and one that results in scarring. This is especially a problem for large tattoos or badly done tattoos which have not been done by a professional.
If you choose to undergo this then the risks of scarring will be discussed along with the benefits. The surgeon will ask you about your medical history and will advise you to avoid sun exposure to the tattoo at least four weeks before your surgery. The reason behind this is to avoid any problems with uneven skin colour or pigmentation patches.
This starts with the injection of a local anaesthetic which will numb the area to be treated.
If you have a small tattoo then the surgeon will cut away this tattoo, bring the edges of skin together and close these with stitches. There is likely to be a minimal amount of bleeding which is cauterised in order to seal the wound.
Once the skin has been stretched to its maximum limit the tattoo can be cut away and the skin stitched together so it remains with fine thin line Scar, with some time duration depending on your body healing nature it will vanish.. Results will be good and satisfied.
Whatever the size of your tattoo, you can expect some soreness and discomfort after surgery but this will ease over time. Much depends upon the area where the tattoo was present, and some parts of the body will be more sensitive than others. Your surgeon will have advised you beforehand on post-operative care. If surgery is not an option then consider other alternatives such as laser tattoo removal as such…
