What is a Keloid?

  • Keloid is a raised scar formed after an injury has healed.
  • Keloid is caused by the synthesis of excess amounts of protein (collagen) in the skin during healing.
  • Keloids are often lumpy and unaesthetic.
  • The scar rises after an injury has healed, such as a surgical incision or acne.

What is Ear Pinna Keloid?

  • Pinna is the outer part of your ear.
  • Ear Pinna Keloids are among the most challenging plastic surgery conditions and have a significant psychosocial impact on the patient.
  • We offer various treatment options for the management of ear pinna Keloids, such as:
  • Surgical excision
  • Intralesional corticosteroid injections
  • Laser therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Radiotherapy
  • Pressure therapy
  • Therapy with antitumor or immunosuppressive agents.

What is the Procedure for Pinna Keloid Excision?

Steps in Surgical Excision:

  • Administration of local anesthesia.
  • An incision in the skin, following the margin of the Keloid.
  • Excision of Keloid along with some amount of surrounding normal tissue.
  • Some amount of surrounding normal tissue is removed to avoid relapse of Keloid.
  • Subsequent suturing the fillet flap. (Hence the surgical is also known as fillet flap surgery)
  • The wound will be treated once daily with topical antibiotics.
  • Suture removal will be done after one week.

What to expect after Ear Keloid Excision Surgery?

  • Immediately after surgery, the doctor places a sterile bandage over the wound.
  • Healing begins within seven days after surgery, and complete recovery may take up to one year.
  • Suture removal is done after 7 to 8 days.

RECURRENCE:

Ear Keloids may reappear after surgery, called recurrence.

  • The recurrence rate is high for Keloid scars.
  • Combinations of Surgical excision with adjuvant therapies like Radiotherapy and Intralesional corticosteroid injections have shown promising results with minimal recurrence.
