Understanding Keloids


“Keloids” occur usually after an injury like a cut or a burn or an abrasion. Sometimes keloids form after a surgical procedure. These usually thick and often quite painful besides being disfiguring.

These keloids can often be carefully and finely removed and then meticulously repaired to minimize the scar to a goal of a fine line. Sometimes keloids return even after fine plastic surgery. Dr. Jacobsen works with other specialists for other therapies for keloid scar prevention as well.

Dr. Jacobsen works with radiation specialists that can help treat the keloids that tend to recur in addition to the surgical removal. These keloid scars are generally covered by your health insurance particularly if they follow a surgical procedure previously. Otherwise Dr. Jacobsen has a simple fee schedule for you to have these removed in the office.

Everyone of course is concerned about the scar left behind. The scar will always be there but it is our goal to make the scar not noticeable to your family and friends or at the very least less noticeable than the mole itself was. We have a “scar” care program to help minimize the scar appearance after your procedure.

Dr. Jacobsen can help you with your keloid removal and a finely done repair of your body and skin. Call us or email us with your keloid removal question and we will be happy to help you!
