Keloid treatment on the chest

I treat countless keloids on the chest and do not use surgery as my primary modality of treatment.  A combination protocol without surgery can help reduce the keloid dramatically.

You should consult with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist with alot of experience with keloid removal. In addition to injectable treatments, lasers can also be used to reduce or remove keloid tissue. Surgery is also effective in many cases but if poorly planned can cause additional keloid tissue to form. Most patients require multiple treatments (injections followed by surgery followed by more injections and laser) for improvement. I hope this information is helpful.
