Keloid and surgical scar revision
Many factors contribute to the aesthetics of scar formation. Kingsley Medical offers a range of surgical and non-surgical scar revision options which aim to improve the cosmetic appearance of surgical or trauma scars.
PLEASE NOTE – treatment of scar tissue is considered an aesthetic (cosmetic) procedure/consultation. The cost of most treatments is not rebatable by Medicare.
Your initial consultation will be used to assess the best treatment option for your skin-type. At this consultation, the cost of treatment will be outlined as well as how best to take care of the scar following treatment.
Treatment options may include:
- Steroid injections
- Topical creams/ointments
- Surgical re-excision followed by corticosteroid injections
If Keloid scarring returns following a scar revision surgery you may be advised to have radiation therapy following re-excision.
During your consultation, all treatment options will be discussed. If the doctors at Kingsley Medical do not feel that they can achieve notable aesthetic, treatment will not be performed.
