Tattoo excision or surgical tattoo removal at our Tallahassee, FL practice helps patients from Destin, FL; Dothan, AL; Valdosta and Thomasville, GA; and surrounding areas get rid of unwanted visible tattoos. With 1 to 3 brief sessions and minimal downtime, we can physically remove the tattoo from the skin while leaving only a barely visible scar. You’ll no longer need to strategically cover up with makeup or clothing.
What Does Surgical Tattoo Removal Do?
Surgical tattoo excision is helpful in removing small tattoos of any color from various areas of the body by excising the pigmented skin. Large tattoos that extend across wide expanses of the skin may not be treatable with excision.
What Happens During Tattoo Removal?
After numbing the area with local anesthesia, your surgeon will use a scalpel to trim away the tattooed skin before bringing together the resulting edges with a line of sutures. You may need between 1 and 3 sessions to completely remove the tattoo. These appointments will typically be spaced several months apart so your skin has time to heal and stretch into place.

What Is Tattoo Removal Recovery Like?
Downtime is minimal. Your incision may be red, swollen, and sensitive for the first 2 weeks. During this time, you’ll need to avoid putting excessive tension in the area. Your scar will soften and become gradually less noticeable over the next few months.
