About Keloids

They say that a scar is your body’s way of telling you it’s healing, but sometimes a scar can present problems of its own. Keloids are a natural and non-dangerous growth on the skin that can cause consistent itching or throbbing pain. Keloids most often develop on the face, shoulders, and chest and can cause social discomfort. African Americans are also eight times more likely to develop keloids than caucasians. Some people may experience diminished functioning of the eyes, nose, mouth, or nose due to the development of scar tissue. 

Symptoms of keloid scarring might include:

  • Thick, irregular scarring, typically on the earlobes, cheeks, shoulders, or on the chest.
  • Shiny, hairless, lumpy, raised skin.
  • Varied size and texture (from soft to firm and rubbery).
  • Reddish, brown or purplish, depending on your complexion.
  • Itchiness and discomfort.

Keloid Scar Removal

Living with keloids can be difficult and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, using standard plastic surgery techniques to remove a keloid can result in them growing back and reforming into an even larger growth. If you have unwanted scars, our keloid removal specialist, Dr. Jones, takes care of your individual needs with a variety of treatments. Regardless of how they were caused (such as by injury to the skin or even a burn), our medical practice will work with you to find the treatment that works best for you. 

A specialized treatment plan for keloids may include:

  • Surgery
  • Cryosurgery
  • Laser treatment
  • Radiation treatments
  • Ligature
  • Pressure earring, dressing, or garment
  • Silicone gel sheets

With Dr. Jones’ specialized keloid removal techniques, our patients experience over a 90% success rate in which the keloid does not reoccur. All our doctors are trained in Dr. Jones’ method of removing keloid scars.
