Keloid scars are the most intrusive type of scar tissue. Keloid growths occur from wounds when the body overproduces collagen and scar tissue in response to wound healing. In some cases, keloid scars can become large and cause deformities of the ear, face, neck or body. At LM Medical NYC, we offer effective treatments and plastic surgery for keloid scar removal at our clinic in Manhattan.

Keloid scars at first resemble hypertrophic scars, a raised scar above the surface of the skin. The difference is that keloid scars do not stay within the confines of the wound border. The scar tissue can grow larger than the wound. Ear piercings are a common wound that can result in a keloid, and the tiny wound can become a large, unwieldly growth if treatment is not performed. Keloids account for 10-15% of scars. Anyone can experience a keloid growth, but it is more prevalent in ethnic groups with darker skin pigmentation.

Surgical and Non-surgical Keloid Treatments

Non-surgical treatments are the first option for keloid scar removal in the early stages. Steroid injections and other non-invasive treatments can be effective in the beginning stages of a keloid growth or for smaller formations. Larger keloids may require scar revision surgery. The difficulty is that keloids can grow back, stimulated by the wounds caused during surgery. Keloid scar removal surgery may need to be followed by steroids and other treatments to reduce the chance of regrowth. Our plastic surgeon can carefully remove large keloids and provide follow-up treatment to limit scar formation.

If you have a keloid scar and need treatment or removal, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Greenwich Village to schedule your keloid scar removal consultation. We have a board certified dermatologist and a double board certified plastic surgeon to ensure you get the best treatment for your keloid growth.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

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.

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!
