Keloids are abnormal scar tissue growths that can become disfiguring in some cases. Unlike normal scar tissue, which resides only within the borders of the skin damage, keloid scars can continue growing outside of those borders. In severe cases, a keloid scar may become a large growth that can be distracting, uncomfortable and unattractive. As part of our ear treatments at LM Medical NYC, we offer keloid removal surgery and scar treatment at our facility in Manhattan.

Keloid scars can occur whenever there is a wound to the skin. Acne, burns, lacerations, incisions and piercings all can trigger the growth of a keloid. Ethnic groups that have darker skin tend to be at a higher risk for keloid scarring. Keloid growths are common on the ear lobes, caused by piercings.

Keloid scars are unique in both their size and growth patterns. While most scars produce a finite amount of scar tissue cells, keloids can continue to produce more cells. Even if a keloid scar or growth is removed, it can grow back if the patient does not receive keloid treatment.

For successful removal of a keloid scar or growth, treatment is recommended to reduce the risk of regrowth.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
