What Are Ear Keloids?
After an injury, scar tissue develops over the wound. In some cases, extra scar tissue develops and it forms a hard growth called a keloid. These raised growths are commonly found on the ears after an ear piercing and can be flesh-colored, pink, or even red. While they're not harmful, they can be unsightly, annoying, and may be the cause of embarrassment. At ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center, board-certified otolaryngologist/facial plastic surgeon Dr. B. Terry Seymour offers ear keloid removal for his Georgia patients. To learn more about how Dr. Seymour can diagnose and treat an ear keloid you may have, contact either our Atlanta or Lithonia, GA location today.
What are the benefits of keloid removal?
Ear keloids are often removed for cosmetic or functional reasons. Even though they are not harmful, they can be bothersome, and some people feel self-conscious about their appearance. Keloid removal may improve your ears and help reduce symptoms such as itching and pain. Dr. Seymour offers surgical and nonsurgical options for keloid removal so patients can choose the treatment that is right for their needs. Our goal is to create results that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable.
What Can I Expect from My Keloid Scar Removal?
There are a variety of keloid treatment options at ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center. Your treatment will begin with a one-on-one consultation where Dr. Seymour will review your ear keloid and discuss your concerns. He may have you try some at-home remedies to remove your keloid, like a moisturizing oil, that could help shrink and remove the keloid over time. However, we can also suggest some in-office treatments that may be more effective, including silicone pads, pressure dressings, and injections. In some cases, surgery may be the best course of action to remove the keloid. Typically in these cases, Dr. Seymour will perform cryotherapy or the practice of freezing the keloid off using liquid nitrogen. For some, laser treatment may be necessary to create a smooth and toned appearance once the keloid is gone.
