Surgical Excision for Unwanted Tattoos
Surgical excision – also called surgical removal – is a more invasive option for tattoo removal.
Some small tattoos might be good candidates for surgical removal, while others are considered too large to remove with a scalpel. The dermatologic surgeon removes the tattoo using a scalpel and closes the wound with stitches. This technique proves highly effective in removing some tattoos and allows the surgeon to remove the inked areas with great precision.
