Is this right for me?
It is not unusual for people to fall out of love with tattoos because we all change with time. Occasionally tattoos cause considerable distress to their owners or loved ones perhaps because of associations to past events or relationships.
If you no longer want to have the tattoo and are prepared to exchange it for a surgical scar then surgery is guaranteed to remove the tattoo. Maybe you have already had laser treatment but are still left with a mark that is unsatisfactory.
If the tattoo is only a few centimetres in width and you can squeeze the skin around it so that it disappears it may be amenable for surgical excision with one or 2 operations. Because surgery is usually planned as an oval (ellipse), long, thin shapes of tattoo may be particularly suitable for this treatment. The tattoo would definitely be gone once the surgery is completed.
What does this involve?
This varies depending on the extent of the tattoo. It can involve one operation or several operations. The resulting scar can be a single straight line or a larger grafted area.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the recovery like?
Again, this is dependent on the extent of the tattoo. As it is a day case procedure, you will be able to go home the same day. If the tattoo covers the upper/ lower limb or across joints, then a large bandage and/or splint will be required. This will keep the area stable to prevent wound breakdown and minimise movement around the wound edges.
