Thanks for your question. Your best course of action would be to consult with a plastic surgeon. Keloids may be injected with steroid to reduce size, or they are sometimes surgically revised.

Application of Plato's Scar Serum can help smooth your scar. I would also suggest IIT and fractional lasers to help the scar.

I would suggest an in person consultation with an expert for evaluation. Keloids and hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Best, Dr. Emer

In the photo these DO NOT appears as keloids, but are spread hypertrophic scars. Either re excision with micro Botx edge injections or the re excision plus 3 days of SRT radio therapy will improve. Fees from $2,000 for just the first option to $6,000 for the second combination option.
