Keloid Scars are Treatable in New York

Scar Treatment New York, NY

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.

Treatment Expectations

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.

To learn more about keloid removal approaches, reach out to Dr. Maurice Khosh at his offices in Manhattan. We are passionate about helping our patients achieve positive changes in their lives. If you need scar revision, our team of specialists are here to provide plastic surgery solutions.

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

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.
