People with darker skin pigmentation are predisposed toward suffering from keloid scars after an injury or surgery. These scars are more pronounced, which can impact an individual’s confidence. If you have keloid scars, Dr. Maurice Khosh can help. There are various methods he can use to reduce the impact of keloid scars.
Steroid injections, coverage with silicone sheets and surgical removal are the approaches used to remove hypertrophic scarring. Dr. Khosh can use these treatments individually or as combined procedures. For keloid scars that are large and highly visible, surgical removal is the first step, followed by steroid injections.
Before recommending treatment, Dr. Khosh will hold a consultation with you to examine your scars. Hypertrophic and keloid scars result from the overproduction of collagen after an injury or surgery. It is important that treatment is delivered within an appropriate timeline. There is also the question of whether your scars are keloids or due to a wound healing unevenly.
When your treatment is completed, Dr. Khosh will discuss a recovery plan with you. This may involve the application of special bandages, taking pain medication and revisiting with Dr. Khosh so that he can examine your scar revision.
Some keloid scars are recurring, which could lead to more than one treatment. Dr. Khosh has successfully removed these scars for other patients at his New York offices. As a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon, he has the credentials needed to help you regain your confidence. You will find support on every step of your journey toward better personal aesthetics.
