Keloids: Before & After Photos
Surgeries performed by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Lam in Plano, TX.
This gentleman had a gauge earring that led to a deformity that ultimately led to a keloid. He had a very complicated surgery in which the keloid was entirely removed, which in turn left a large gauge deformity in his ear. He had a reconstruction of this using a rolled flap and then had subsequent radiation therapy to minimize recurrence. He is shown before and 8 months after surgery.
This 46-year-old African-American male is shown before and 1 year after keloid excision of his right neck and his left ear lobe. Of note, he had a prior keloid excision performed elsewhere that amputated his ear lobe that shows a persistent deformity.
This gentleman is shown before and six months after keloid excision in the back of his scalp with good success. Of note, he had multiple failures in the past with various injectable treatments by dermatologists.
This keloid was surgically removed by Dr. Lam and was followed by timed radiation. The patient is shown 1 year after surgery without recurrence. He had previously failed surgery elsewhere with the keloid actually worsening rather than improving after surgery.
