Keloid Scar Removal

Woman Looking at Her Face in Mirror

Have you experienced minor surgery, an injury or even acne that has resulted in the formation of a raised scar on your skin? Perhaps you’ve noticed that the scar is remarkably larger than the original wound and appears as if it has spilled across the skin. This type of scarring is called a keloid scar, and while not everyone will develop a keloid following a skin injury, it can be quite embarrassing for those that do. What’s more, the scar itself can cause pain and itchiness, or it may decrease a person’s ability to move freely if the keloid formation covers a joint or large area (American Academy of Dermatologists or AAD). As such, many individuals seek keloid scar treatment and/or removal.

Effective treatment and removal of a keloid scar is complex and requires a personalized approach that considers a patient’s age, type of keloid, its location and more. For example, if a keloid scar is on a patient’s earlobe, a surgical approach might include cutting the formation or simply shaving it off in layers. In other cases, multiple treatments might be needed to prevent the development of more keloid scarring in the future.

Working alongside dermatologists and radiation therapists, Dr. Khosh is able to offer a specialized protocol, which often consists of steroid injections to manage smaller keloid formations.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
