Keloid Removal and Reconstruction Is Possible Orlando, FL

Keloids are made of fibroblasts and skin cells intended to heal a wound, but instead, they multiply out of control. Keloids may appear anywhere in your body after a wound, but most often, they occur on the chest, shoulders, neck, face and ears. People with darker skin are more likely to develop keloids than people with light skin. In addition, keloids can develop as long as a year after the wound.

Can Keloids Be Removed?

Most doctors will start with the least-invasive treatment options. Also, they may use a combination of treatments to get the best results. Various treatments include steroids, compression, laser treatments or 5FU injections, and progressive combinations may bring excellent results as the scars diminish.

When therapies and medications don’t work, it’s time to speak to a specialist plastic surgeon who is highly trained and experienced to discuss the excision of the keloids.

What is a Keloid Excision?

A keloid excision is a surgery to remove the keloid. When you have an excision done by a highly trained and experienced surgeon, they will strive to prevent any further problems and leave no visible scarring after the scar removal. This surgery varies in complexity depending on various factors. The surgeon must consider the size of the keloid, its location, the quality of the surrounding skin and the patient’s history. Excisions are often needed with large scars beyond the boundary of the wound.

When is Keloid Reconstruction Needed?

Reconstruction may be needed when a surgeon cannot repair the skin’s appearance during keloid excision. Excision and reconstruction require a highly skilled doctor with surgical precision and artistic talent to perform both procedures. The doctor will determine the procedures and timing to best address the individual situation. The doctor will consider things like the size and location of the wound and any other necessary surgeries. Choosing a specialized doctor with an excellent reputation will give you the best results possible. To find the specialized surgeon for you, consider training, experience, honors for excellence and patient testimonials before deciding if keloid excision or reconstruction is an option.
