Keloids affect men and women equally, but impact up to 20% of populations with darker skin tones. These painful and/or itchy scar tissues form over a wound when the skin is broken. This can be from a piercing, acne, chickenpox, or even a scratch.
Traditional surgical removal is usually not the best option to remove a keloid as it often reappears as an even larger growth, which is why our highly dedicated team is trained in our specific procedure that has a 90% success rate.
I was at the barber shop and it started as a little nick and it grew a little bit. I had it looked at and I was given some medicine and the medicine didn’t work. After that I went to a dermatologist and he cut it off and it grew back even bigger. I should have got it looked at again but because of the last doctor, I wasn’t really confident in him, so I didn’t want to test it.

Anthony’s Story A Keloid Removal
Lexington Plastic Surgeons offers the most advanced treatment options for keloid removal. The Sensus Healthcare Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT-100) system for the treatment of keloids achieves impressive outcomes when combined with surgical removal.
This low-energy radiation dose is directed to the topical area, leaving minimal to no scarring and lessening the chance for the recurrence of stubborn keloids.
An Ideal Candidate
You should be an adult in good general health, preferably a non-smoker. Patients undergoing this procedure should have realistic expectations for the results after surgery and be ready to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow the medical team’s instructions for recovery and beyond.
Temporary fatigue and soreness post-surgery is common for about a week after implants and longer for a flaps procedure.
