Understanding the Tattoo Removal Excision Process



by: William Saul

There are a number of different tattoo removal procedures and processes that are being utilized today. One of these procedures is what is known as the tattoo removal excision process. Through this article you are presented with the pros and the cons. By weighing and balancing this information you will be in the best position to determine whether or not the removal process is the best course of action for you to take in regard to removing your own ink.

The removal process is a widely used procedure when a person has a small tattoo that he or she would like to have removed. Indeed, the process has proven time and again to be extremely effective when it comes to the removal of a small or smaller tattoo.

The primary reason that the process is so effective with small tattoos is based on the very simple fact that the entire tattooed area is surgically removed. While it is possible to use the tattoo removal excision process on larger tattoos, normally this will need to be done in stages. It simply is not possible to excise a large tattoo in one "sitting" or procedure.

When it comes to removing a larger tattoo through the excision process, the center of the tattoo normally is removed first. The sides are then removed at a later date (or dates, depending on the size of the tattoo).

The tattoo removal excision process involves an actual removal of the skin itself. The epidermis and the dermis both are removed through the process. The removal process starts with a local anesthetic being injected in order to numb the area that will be treated. After the skin has been cut away, the remaining edges are brought together and properly sutured. In the case of largert tattoos, it sometimes is necessary to graft skin that will be taken from another part of the body to close up the wound that is created through the process itself.

The tattoo removal excision process actually does not involve a great deal of bleeding. Many people assume that a great deal of bleeding will be involved when the skin is being removed in this manner. However, bleeding is controlled by what is known as electrocautery which is a process of sealing off the affected blood vessels with a heated needle.

Finally, with the removal process there likely will be scarring. In some cases (particularly when dealing with a larger tattoo) the scarring can end up being rather extensive. Scarring is perhaps the biggest drawback to what otherwise is an effective procedure.
