Tattoo Removal in Boca Raton, FL

Farber Plastic Surgery, led by Scott T. Farber, MD, FACS, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care. Dr. Farber offers tattoo removal to patients that travel throughout Florida, across the United States and internationally.

Old loves, radical designs, mementos of a Vegas weekend, and tributes to Mom — Dr. Farber has seen them all. Tattoos can be artistic expressions that let people know more about you, but what if you change and the tattoo no longer fits who you are now?

What Is Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is an option for people who prefer not to cover up their tattoos with clothing or another tattoo. The techniques used for removal have improved in recent years, but the outcome of removal depends on several factors, such as the age of the tattoo, colors used, and skill of the tattoo artist.

Is Tattoo Removal Right for Me?

The most common reason that people are not able to undergo laser tattoo removal is scarring. Dr. Farber examines your tattoo for signs of scarring and other indications to determine if the treatment will remove your tattoo. He will also advise you on the expected outcome of the treatment.

Why Choose Dr. Farber?

Scott Farber, MD, FACS, is a fourth-generation surgeon with over ten years of medical and surgical training who has distinguished himself in the fields of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery with both his academic achievements and esteemed surgical training. Dr. Farber was trained in New York by three of the biggest names in plastic surgery – Dr. Sherrell Aston, Dr. Daniel Baker, and Dr. Alan Matarasso. As a native of southern Florida, Dr. Farber is excited to work with patients in Boca Raton and surrounding communities to help them look and feel their absolute best. Dr. Farber uses only the most advanced surgical techniques, and when combined with his unparalleled training and proven techniques, he provides his patients with the utmost excellence in care.

Dr. Farber sets himself apart from other plastic surgeons with his philosophy on cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. In addition to the advances in techniques and technologies that are used by Dr. Farber for cosmetic procedures, the field of plastic surgery is being more widely recognized as something other than a vanity-based decision for patients. As part of the newer generation of plastic surgeons, Dr. Farber not only has the skills, training, and techniques to provide excellent care to every patient, but he also has this modern perspective of cosmetic procedures – he knows that improving your appearance through plastic surgery gives you a fresh outlook on life. He understands the deeper purpose of your decision to make subtle changes to your skin, face, and body, changes that mean much more to you than simply looking better, and he is excited about being a partner in your journey toward a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

What Happens During the Tattoo Removal Procedure?

Black ink is the easiest to remove with laser treatments because it absorbs all types of lasers, so other colors require an in-depth understanding of which laser wavelengths work best on each color. For this reason, you should trust your laser tattoo removal only to an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Farber.

How Much Does Tattoo Removal Cost in Boca Raton, FL?

Laser tattoo removal typically requires several treatments for best results, and the procedure is not covered by medical insurance. You can apply for financing and even be pre-approved before your first appointment. Farber Plastic Surgery also offers consultations with Dr. Farber.

On the Road to Recovery

An ice pack is applied immediately after treatment, and Dr. Farber may prescribe a topical antibiotic. A dressing is applied to protect the area while it heals, and once the dressing is removed, you should protect the area with sunscreen while outdoors.
