Although laser tattoo removal is an excellent treatment, sometimes it is not the best solution. Fortunately, tattoo’s can also be removed by excision. Basically, it’s similar to removing a skin lesion, like a mole. Tattoos come in all sizes and shapes and they can be located pretty much anywhere on the body. So, for a tattoo to be removed, it has to first be properly assessed to ensure that it can be removed safely. If you are a good candidate for tattoo excision, one big advantage of this procedure is that the tattoo is gone right away as opposed to months and months with laser tattoo removal. An important thing to understand is that with any excision, a scar will be left behind. The size and shape of the scar will depend on the size, shape, and location of the tattoo. To minimize the scar it is very important that an experienced plastic surgeon is utilized such as Dr. Bastidas.
