Keloid Removal Earlobes Treatment Center
Opened 7 days a Week for Treatment
Keloids of the earlobe pose a complex management problem. They are relatively common sequelae of trauma or irritation to the skin of the earlobe, and usually appear in predisposed individuals as benign, smooth, globular outgrowths on one or both sides of the earlobe.
Depending on their size, depth, and duration, a number of treatment approaches have been developed and applied over the years with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, no single therapeutic modality has proven to be 100% efficacious. A retrospective analysis of 24 patients with clinically and histologically documented earlobe keloids was undertaken.
In addition, a review of the literature on earlobe keloids was conducted. Surgical excision of keloids with one dose of intraoperative intralesional steroid resulted in no recurrence in 80% of patients at a mean follow-up of 31 months.
The addition of radiation to this combination resulted in a recurrence-free rate of 100%. Postoperative pressure therapy, used alone, though claimed to be effective, did not show much benefit. However, patient compliance with this therapeutic modality was poor.

I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatologic care which I would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results
Dr Gary sees every patient himself and believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.
A significant percentage of my Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists. I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients. This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.
