For many individuals, keloid scars can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness. These raised, thickened scars occur when the body’s natural healing process goes into overdrive, resulting in excessive collagen production. Keloid scars can develop from various different ailments or conditions including acne, surgical incisions, burns, or even skin injuries. Fortunately, our skilled surgical team offers effective solutions to address these scars and help restore smooth, even skin.
When it comes to treating keloid scars, our expert plastic surgeons take a personalized approach, making sure to take inventory of specific scar characteristics and your medical history. Surgical excision is a common approach to removing keloids but consulting with a plastic surgeon will allow you to explore all available options and result in a plan tailored to your specific needs and concerns.
