Keloid Removal

South Side Chicago Dentist

A keloid is an overgrowth of scar tissue that rises above the rest of the skin and tends to grow progressively. Keloids generally appear after an injury but could also appear following surgery, or as a result to trauma to the skin such as inflammation from acne, burns or piercings. Also, you may be genetically prone to keloids. Those of African and Asian decent tend to be more susceptible to keloids.

We follow the treatment guidelines set forth by the Keloid Research Foundation. Please click the links below to view the various guidelines we abide by:

Dr. Cornell McCullom has successfully removed keloids for many patients. He has developed a technique that successfully removes keloids leaving you to enjoy a restored natural look. Be sure to contact our office so that we may schedule you a consultation with Dr. Cornell McCullom.
