Is it possible to get a tattoo on medial thigh lift scar?

Hello. I had a medial thigh lift. The scars are bothering me and I would like to get a tattoo. Is it possible? How long do I need to wait till I can get one? Thank you

Thank you for your question.

Yes, it will be possible for you to get a tattoo over your scar.  I would contact your surgeon and discuss the possibility as they know how well you've healed at this point, and if the scar has matured enough.
