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.
"There is a lot I can say about the care I've gotten but I will keep it direct. From day one when I went in about my sleep apnea and removal of tonsils. Dr. Seymour wanted to do more than just go behind another Dr. He wanted to start from A to get to Z himself. Dr. Seymour and his staff have been nothing more than generous each time I've walked through there office doors. Dr. Seymour is very thorough and informative. He was and have been determined to find the exact problem and an exact solution, rather than just an easy fix I can say that. Even throughout the process which have been lengthy there nothing bad I can say. I have had some long wait times I’ve experienced and issues with getting things scheduled and on the roll but the services are nothing that I complain and find an issue with. Just ready for it all to be over. Thanks Dr. T Seymour"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Feb 25, 2022
"He's pretty thorough but the wait was a bit too long for me. He was very busy and I waited 1 1/2 hours to be seen."- Anonymous / ZocDoc / Feb 11, 2022
"Dr. Seymour is a highly qualified ENT that finally relieved me of my chronic sinusitis issues. I had suffered (only able to breathe from my mouth) for 7 years, before a friend's referral led me to him. He did an awesome surgical procedure and I'm able to breathe through my nose again. THANK YOU!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 23, 2021
"Dr. Seymour is the only ENT that has helped my chronic sinusitis. I've been to several doctors who would only prescribe steroids and antibiotics, however, Dr. Seymour took the time to find the source of the issue and correct it. I can finally breathe after 7 years. Thank You!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 23, 2021
