What Is Keloid Excision?

A keloid is an abnormally large and thick scar that can vary in texture. Keloids most commonly appear on the earlobes after they've been pierced but can develop anywhere on the body as a result of an injury or trauma to the skin. This excess scar tissue, while harmless, may cause itching or discomfort. Since it will not typically fade on its own, a keloid requires treatment for removal. While there are many treatments available, some cases may require keloid excision surgery, which is a service board-certified dermatologist Dr. Calvin Williams offers in Bedford, TX. If you are unhappy with how a keloid feels or looks, call Essential Dermatology Group to make an appointment for keloid excision surgery.

How Does Keloid Excision Work?

Typically, if you have a keloid that hasn't been effectively removed with other treatments, Dr. Williams can perform a keloid excision. This minor surgery will take place after you have been given local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable. For the procedure, a small incision will be made over the keloid to extract the scar tissue. Sometimes a steroid may be injected before or during the keloid excision to help minimize the risk of the keloid coming back. Sutures will then be used to close up the wound. Afterward, you may also be advised to wear a pressure earring or compression garment to reduce blood flow and help prevent the keloid from reoccurring.

Dr. Williams caught a skin cancer that other docs ignored. I recommend him to everyone.
