Plastic Surgery on Keloid Skin in St Louis, MO
I am a 28 year old woman who has suffered from keloid skin since about age 17. I currently have one on my chest, my right lobe, two on my right neck area, and a few small ones in the pubic area.
The keloids cause pain and itching. I've visited various plastic surgeons and dermatologists for evaluations, and haven't had luck. One wanted to perform the surgery but I couldn't come up with $800 at the time. One of the plastic surgeons prescribed Cordran lotion and it hasn't really helped much.
I am very interested in cryoshaping, scalpel removal of the areas, and injections. I am pretty much searching for information on occurrence after the surgeries in each areas, post treatment options, and for a surgeon who is board certified who may be able to help me.
Any advice on caring for these areas is greatly appreciated!
