Keloid Scar Reconstructive Surgery

New York NY Doctor for Keloid Scar Surgery

Scarring occurs when the skin heals from a wound. It is a natural occurrence that means that the skin is doing its job to recover from injury. However, how a wound heals affects how a scar will appear after the injury. If you have been left with an excessive, hard, and noticeable scar, known as a keloid scar, on your face, ear, jawline, or neck, Dr. Maurice Khosh in Manhattan is the name that you can trust.

Keloid scar reconstructive surgery that is done on the facial regions requires the exceptional precision of a truly skilled cosmetic surgeon. Keloid scars can grow to become incredibly large, causing emotional harm of embarrassment and feeling self-conscious as well as causing functional damage to certain areas of the body. Keloid scar most often cause cosmetic concerns rather than a health issue. Keloids often grow larger than the original wound itself, leaving not only a visible reminder of an injury, but also a new cosmetic concern that must be dealt with.

The specific cause of keloid scarring is unknown, but researchers believe that genetics play a huge role in whether or not you will be predetermined for keloids. There is also a higher prevalence for keloid scarring among those who have darkly pigmented skin, such as African-Americans, those of Latino heritage, and those of Asian heritage.

Keloid scars can take up to a few weeks or a few months until they finish growing. A small cut on the jaw line can produce a keloid scar that is eight times larger (or more), and that becomes like a tumorous growth. Dr. Khosh has a specific skill set for the removal of keloid scars. While smaller keloids can typically be managed by steroid injections, larger keloids require surgical removal followed by steroid injections. Dr. Khosh is an expert in keloid scar reconstructive surgery. He works closely with dermatologists and radiation therapists to offer a comprehensive and appropriate treatment for each individual patient.

If you have a keloid scar that you desire to have treated or removed, please contact our practice for a private consultation. Dr. Khosh is dedicated to helping patients regain their confidence.

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.

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.
