Keloids of the earlobes in Los Angeles
I have a very low recurrence rate with keloids in my practice. Earlobe keloids require surgery in most cases, followed by at least 6 months of follow up care to prevent recurrence.

I would recommend you meet with Dr Edgar Fincher of Moy Fincher dermatology to discuss how to best treat your keloids. There are other options rather than radiation that should be effective and safer than using radiation.
Keloid Removal with Radiation
It is very important that the radiation be timed in advance so that it follows excision by less than 24 hours so i always schedule the two way in advance. you need 5 days of low cycle radiation immediately following the procedure to get the good results. i specialize in keloids and radiation treatments and it is important to get everything surgically done right and timed with radiation. if you do not follow the above sequence, your success goes from 95% to below 30%.
