Dr. Cohen offers precise excision procedures for tattoo revision and removal. She works closely with patients to determine their individual needs and the results they are seeking.
For this surgical removal of a tattoo, local anesthetic is used to numb the area before the surgery. Dr. Cohen then uses the skilled eyes and hands of an experienced plastic surgeon to remove the tattoo. Once it is removed, sutures are used to close the incision.
Results are typically seen within three weeks of treatment, and several treatments may be required to achieve the desired result. The number of sessions necessary to remove the tattoo depends on multiple factors, such as its size, color, and the depth of the pigmentation. Recovery times vary, but it is recommended that patients take extra care in the sunlight and refrain from shaving until the area is healed.
