Keloid Scar Treatment in Houston, TX
Sometimes, the body is too good at healing itself – which is the case with keloid scars. The excessive overgrowth of scar tissue can be embarrassing, but you don’t have to continue living with it. Premier Plastic Surgery performs keloid scar treatment for residents in Houston, Pearland, Lake Jackson and the surrounding areas of South Houston.
What is Keloid Scar Treatment?
Keloid scar treatment may be based on the size and type of the keloid scar and the age of the patient, along with a variety of other contributing factors. At Premier Plastic Surgery, our recommended treatment is generally surgical. We enhance the procedure by injecting triamcinolone into the wound at the time of surgery. In selected cases, superficial radiation therapy or SRT can be given within 24 hours after surgery.
Benefits of Keloid Scar Treatment
Some of the more common benefits of keloid scar treatment include:
- Flattening, removal, or reduction in the size of the keloid scar
- Increased self-confidence
- Reduced pain, itching, or tenderness caused by the keloid scar
