SURGICAL REMOVAL OF SCARS AND TATTOOS
Different scars disrupt the appearance of our body no matter where they are. Scars can be developed differently and vary in shape, color, and appearance. They arise as a result of an injury or surgical intervention, and they are the product of the human body for healing. Scars can disturb normal function of the body and cause movement restrictions due to shrinkage and skin tension. By tattooing, we emphasize personality and attitudes. But as time changes our attitudes and thoughts, tattoos often become undesirable and we decide to remove them.
It is necessary to draw attention if you have coagulopathies, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, kidney or heart disease, and if you are taking anticoagulants (Aspirin, Andol, Plavix, Sintra).
- Anesthesia: The surgical procedure is most often done in local anesthesia.
- Duration: The duration of the surgical procedure is about 20 minutes.
After the surgery of removing scars or tattoos, a patient can go home. Analgesics and antibiotics are administered as needed. The patient can return to regular activities tomorrow. The threads are removed 7-12 days depending on the region. After removing the threads, the scar is treated with scar tissue to make it as insignificant as possible. Our kind staff will explain to you the procedure.
Complications are rare. Infection can occur, and as a late complication and the formation of hypertrophic scars.
