SCAR REMOVAL / REVISION AND TATTOO REMOVAL
Patients may have unsightly scars from previous operations, burns or trauma. They may have tattoos they now regret having done. Some scars and tattoos can be associated with social stigma and cause other members of the public to unfairly prejudge those who have them. They may cause embarrassment and affect choice of clothing, activities, social relationships and even jobs. Scars can cause functional problems too such as dryness, tightness and tethering. Some tattoo inks can dissipate and cause irritation or smudging. There are a wide variety of options to treat such problems, from simple surgical removal and closure with a new better quality scar to dermabrasion, laser treatment or complex surgical treatments designed to break up or re-orientate a scar or replace large areas of scar with skin substitutes or tissues from elsewhere in the body.
These procedures are usually performed as a daycase and can often be done under local anaesthetic (With you awake) although some patients prefer to be asleep (A general anaesthetic). I have extensive experience of all the latest techniques and will be able to advise which technique is best for you, depending on the size and shape of the existing scar or tattoo and the desired result. Many surgeons are only familiar with one or two techniques, so it is important to know, whoever you see, that they are suggesting the operation that is best for you rather than just suggesting the operation they are able to do.
My patients are highly satisfied with their surgery. This includes hospital and nursing staff who have asked me to perform the operation after seeing my outcomes, and by personal recommendation of friends and relatives who like my friendly yet professional approach, and know they are in safe hands. My patients are more comfortable with their appearance after surgery, their confidence and self-esteem is better. They feel they can wear more revealing clothing, clothing fits them better in general and often personal and sexual relationships improve. It is an operation I enjoy doing knowing predictably good results.
