Can a Skin Graft Be Removed?

I have a skin graft on my lower back and 1/2 of my buttocks that measures 30 by 40 cm. it is a very old scar I got at the age of 6 I am now 25. I've tried to cover it with a tattoo but it now looks worse. I would like to have it excised as much as possible.

Great question.  Skin graft donor and skin graft sites can be excised serially, or they can be resurfaced with new fractional co2 lasers to improve appearance. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles
