I had a tattoo on my ankle that I had attempted to have lasered off & unfortunately experience significant adverse effects that persisted for months. That's why I looked into excisional tattoo removal. I sought consult with 3 other plastic surgeons who felt it couldn't be done before I was lucky enough to find Dr. Nachbar. I had a few requirements to proceed with the procedure--no anesthesia & no ballooons to stretch the skin.
He told me he would be able to remove the tattoo in anywhere from 2-4 treatments if done this way. He was able to accomplish it with 2 treatments in the office with local anesthetic. I am still in the process of healing from the second procedure; however, I couldn't be happier and suffered very little to almost no pain. Overall an EXCELLENT experience!
