Having second thoughts? You should…
You want to remove a bad and/or undesired tattoo and have heard that surgical excision is effective. While it most certainly removes the tattoo, it is an antiquated and downright medieval method of getting rid of body ink. Below is a “public service announcement” regarding why it’s a terrible idea and why you should choose the superior alternative.
Why You Must Avoid Surgical Excision Tattoo Removal (and the best alternative)
They SLICE Off Your Skin
We capitalized “slice” for a good reason, because that’s exactly what happens. Don’t let the medical word “excision” make you think that it is anything other than what it is. The plastic surgeon will cut and slice-off the layer of skin that bears the body ink. That’s as physically invasive as it can get. Remember that episode of Sons of Anarchy when the MC discovers that Kyle still has his ink? They give him the option between removal by fire or knife. He chooses the former. That should tell you something about excision. If you can stomach it, watch the scene here.
Risk of General Anesthesia
Surgical excision tattoo removal for a large design may require general anesthesia. As you know, there is an inherent risk involved with general anesthesia, with side effects that may include nausea, vomiting, chills, confusion for a few days, and a sore throat caused by a breathing tube. In very rare cases, general anesthesia can lead to death.
It WILL Result in a Scar
There’s no way around it. Given that a surgeon is slicing off a layer of skin a permanent scar will remain. The larger the tattoo, the larger and more unsightly the scar will be.
