Keloid before and after steroid injection

Keloid scars a challenging to remove, as they may recur despite treatment at some point in the future. These types of scars are more common around the ears or chest, especially in darker skinned individuals. The mainstay of keloid scar therapy is both steroid injections and plastic surgery. Commonly, plastic surgeons will inject a keloid scar before, during, and after the plastic surgery. Other treatments for aggressive or extensive scarring include low-dose radiation, silicone, pressure, or skin grafts among other things. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a plastic surgeon help determine appropriate treatment options for you. Best of luck.

Keloid scars are a growth of more than normal scar tissues and can be caused by acne, burns, piercings, surgery, vaccinations, and even from minor scratches or cuts. They can be flesh colored, red, or pink, and they are often lumpy or have ridges of extra tissue. Keloid scars are not necessarily painful but can be irritated by clothing or any rubbing. Individuals with darker skin tend to be more prone to keloid formation, but men and women are about equally affected. [1] Surgical therapies for treating keloids can be expensive, so you may want to try taking steps at home before consulting your doctor.

It’s been 9 days since my last post, and the top layer of my hypertrophic scar is still gone. I probably exfoliated too much because a new scab isn’t forming. I decided that I should leave it alone for a while because the open wound is a little unsettling for me. For now, I keep it covered with neosporin and a band-aid. I have Scar Away silicone patches for when it closes. In addition, the bruised area surrounding my hypertrophic scar caused by the ACV irritation has given way to a new problem… that area of my skin began to scab.

If a break occurs in a gel-filled implant, however, one of two things may occur. If the shell breaks but the scar capsule around the implant does not, you may not detect any change. If the scar also breaks or tears, especially following extreme pressure, silicone gel may move into surrounding tissue. The gel may collect in the breast and cause a new scar to form around it, or it may migrate to another area of the body. There may be a change in the shape or firmness of the breast. Both types of breaks may require a second operation and replacement of the leaking implant. In some cases, it may not be possible to remove all of the silicone gel in the breast tissue if a rupture should occur.
