All methods of butterfly tattoos removal do require surgery, which in itself will carry along risks and side effects. Even though you may be getting a simple surgery, there may be complications with it as well. For this very reason, you should always consider getting a tattoo removed very carefully. It’s very important that you be extremely sure you want the tattoo removed before you proceed with any type of tattoo removal surgery.
Most often times your doctor or dermatologist will be able to explain to you step by step how the surgery works, how long it will take to complete, and the type of recovery that you can expect. As you probably already know, the surgery site will be quite tender for a long period of time and will more than likely result in scarring. As time goes by however, the scarring will tend to lessen eventually to the point where it isn’t all that visible.
The answer to scarring however, all depends on the tattoo’s size. If you have a large tattoo, the scarring result will be more than that of a smaller tattoo. Depending on where you have the tattoo that you want removed, you may notice quite a bit of pain. Certain areas of the body, such as the chest and elbows are more sensitive than other areas of the body.
Once you and your doctor have agreed on a decision to remove the butterfly tattoos, you’ll be given an appointment time for the surgery. It may or may not be performed as outpatient surgery; it all depends on your health and any complications that may arise. In most cases, those that had tattoo removal surgery are held overnight and observed before being allowed to go home. Before you have the surgery, you should always speak to your surgeon and find out if there are any known risks associated with your procedure.
As many know, the costs of getting a butterfly tattoo removed can be very expensive. If the tattoo is a large one, the expenses can be outrageous. Most insurance companies won’t pay for these costs unless there is a medial or health reason involved. With insurance not paying for the removal of the tattoo, you’ll need to pay costs out of pocket. You should always talk to your doctor and make payment arrangements before you have the surgery. Getting butterfly tattoos removed can be painful, impose risks, expensive.
