Who will do it?

A cosmetic surgeon's reputation, qualifications and experience are vitally important, so we only work with consultant grade specialists. These are highly experienced doctors who have completed years of training. All our consultants are on the specialist register of the General Medical Council (GMC), and many are also members of the UK’s leading cosmetic and plastic surgery associations.

Our patients are at the heart of what we do and we want you to be in control of your care. To us, that means you can choose the cosmetic surgeon you want to work with, when you want, and where you want from across our network of 39 hospitals and many clinics across the UK. They'll be with you every step of the way: from giving advice at your first consultation, through to offering on-going support after your surgery.

All of our cosmetic surgeons are of the highest calibre and benefit from working in our modern, well equipped hospitals. If you don't have someone in mind, we can help you choose the best consultant for you. 

Before your treatment

You will have a formal consultation with a healthcare professional. During this time you will be able to explain your medical history, symptoms and raise any concerns that you might have.

We will also discuss with you whether any further diagnostic tests, such as scans or blood tests, are needed. Any additional costs will be discussed before further tests are carried out.

Preparing for your treatment

We've tried to make your experience with us as easy and relaxed as possible.

For more information on visiting hours, our food, what to pack if you're staying with us, parking and all those other important practicalities, please visit our patient information pages.

Our dedicated team will also give you tailored advice to follow in the run up to your visit.

The procedure

Some small tattoos might would be ideal for surgical removal. The surgeon removes the tattoo using a scalpel and closes the wound with stitches. This technique proves highly effective in removing some tattoos and allows the surgeon to remove the inked areas with great precision.

Aftercare

The local anaesthetic will wear off in approximately one hour.

Apart from a mild discomfort, most people do not experience any high level of discomfort after the procedure. Mild pain relief, such as paracetamol, can be taken to ease discomfort if needed.

The recovery time is not long with tattoo removal. We recommend four weeks until you are fully recovered.

It will be 12 weeks until the final result.

Important to note

The treatment described on this page may be adapted to meet your individual needs, so it's important to follow your healthcare professional's advice and raise any questions that you may have with them.
