tattoo removal for cabin crew

cabin crew and many other professions may not be allowed to display tattoos – small tattoos can be easily removed with awake surgery at a single hospital visit.  an increasing number of patients are choosing to have surgery because it predictably removes all trace of the tattoo and this is done at a single visit (laser treatment typically requires multiple sessions and leaves a trace of the tattoo).    if you can easily gather the whole tattoo in a pinch of skin then it should be possible to remove it surgically.


slightly larger tattoos may require more than one operation to remove.  very large tattoos, eg whole of shoulder / deltoid or all the way around the arm are unlikely to be amenable for surgical excision. skin grafting is an option for larger tattoos but this leaves significant scars.

Summer Holiday Surgery

Early during the summer holidays is a convenient time for many people to have surgery especially teachers and parents of school children.

It often takes a month or two to fix a surgical date after your consultation so it is worth thinking about scheduling your consultation during may or june.

If you are planning to travel abroad for summer holidays, it is advisable to have any surgery completed several weeks before going away.
