There are currently millions of people from around the world who are suffering needlessly from the embarrassment caused by keloids. One of the problems that sufferers face is the lack of access to effective treatment options. Keloids are unique. This is since traditional treatment methods for removal or reduction of scar tissue actually results in new tissue forming, post-surgery. Patients are therefore paying for repeat treatments, often at significant cost, with no guarantee of a favorable outcome.
Access to treatment for keloids should always begin with a suitable consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon. Unlike other scars, keloids are highly visible in the majority of cases. People from ethnic backgrounds with darker skin pigmentation are more likely to experience the formation of keloids after an injury or surgery. Finding a reliable plastic surgeon who understands what causes keloids and how to effectively remove scar tissue remains a challenge for citizens of countries all over the world.
The removal of keloids using superficial radiation therapy (SRT) provides hope for the millions who have to look at unsightly scar tissue in the mirror each day. Part of the challenge for plastic surgeons with the experience and technology to treat keloids is in providing easy access to services. A virtual consultation with a plastic surgeon is one way that doctors from around the world can discuss the needs of individual patients in a more meaningful way.
As it stands, there are relatively few plastic surgeons that possess the skills and surgical systems to offer effective keloid removal to patients. Plastic surgeons who provide a virtual consultation can provide assurances to patients when travel is necessary to receive the treatments they need.
