What are Keloids? Orlando, FL
Effective Treatment and Removal of Keloids

A keloid is a type of scar that forms after an injury or surgery. Keloids are raised and prominent in appearance. They often cause significant damage to the self-esteem of those who suffer from this affliction. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to have keloids removed using advanced technologies and surgical techniques. Although the exact cause of keloids is not fully understood, this type of scar tissue is most common among people with darker skin pigmentation.

When a keloid forms, fibrous non-cancerous tissue builds up around the area of injury. As you can imagine, a large amount of scarring in an area that is easily visible can greatly impact confidence. People who suffer from keloid scars will usually consult with a doctor who specializes in cosmetic surgery to pursue options for treatment or removal. The problem with keloids is there is a high level of risk associated with new scar tissue forming as a result of treatment.

Advances in Keloid Removal

Millions of people around the world suffer from cosmetic imperfections due to keloids, often without access to effective treatment. Traveling to clinics that offer advanced treatment options for keloids is now possible through superficial radiation therapy (SRT). Using SRT, an experienced plastic surgeon can target and remove fibrous scar tissue. This treatment is typically combined with other procedures that are designed to prevent keloids from reforming and leaving a less visible scar.

Treatment options for keloids should be individualized to produce optimum outcomes for the patient. A consultation with the plastic surgeon will typically take place prior to confirmation of a treatment plan. Our practice also provides the option of a virtual consultation, offered to international patients who are prepared to travel in order to undergo viable treatments.

Patients who have previously attended a consultation for keloid removal surgery should revisit their options. This is since access to effective treatment is now available from specialist plastic surgeons like Dr. Spence.
