Earlobe Keloid Treatment

A keloid is the growth of extensive scar tissue, often occurring on an earlobe that has been pierced. In earlobe keloids, the scar tissue can thicken, growing into a mass that can overtake the entire earlobe. Keloids are more common in African Americans, Asians and other people of darker pigment. The keloid can grow to the point of becoming disfiguring and creating functional problems.

The exact cause of keloid scar formation is unknown, but it does seem to be linked to hereditary and hormonal factors. Scar tissue continues to grow unless treated with steroids or other methods. To remove an earlobe or other keloid, there are several different ear procedures that experienced facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Khosh use.

Keloid Removal

Dr. Khosh offers keloid removal treatments and surgery for earlobes and other skin areas. For small keloids, steroid injections can be all that is needed for treatment. With larger keloids, surgical removal followed by steroid injections or surgery followed by radiation treatment may be needed. Each case can be different and not all keloids respond in the same manner to treatment.

If you have an earlobe keloid that needs to be removed, contact Dr. Khosh today to schedule a consultation to discuss treatment. Early treatment of keloids is the best solution, but Dr. Khosh has helped many patients with larger earlobe keloids through surgical removal and post-surgical treatments.

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.

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.
