People get their tattoos removed for any number of reasons, whether it’s dissatisfaction with the appearance of the tattoo or changes in lifestyle that warrant removal of body art for personal or professional reasons. Our tattoo surgical removal procedure completely eliminates the body ink with little discomfort or downtime afterward.
Our Tattoo Removal Procedure
Dr. Kaweski performs tattoo removals using a combination of surgical excision and possible skin grafting or tissue stretching. The procedure completely removes the pigment of the tattoo, making this procedure the most thorough and precise method for removing body ink today. The specific technique that Dr. Kaweski uses varies according to each patient’s specific needs and medical history, as well as the size and location of the tattoo.
In most cases, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia, Some procedures are performed in stages or a series of sessions, spaced approximately 3-6 months apart. Other procedures may require a tissue expander which stretches good skin in the area so it can be used to cover the tattoo site once the tattoo is removed.
