Technical difficulty:
Average duration of the intervention:
depends on the size of the keloid
Average duration of hospitalization:
depends on the size of the scar

When is this procedure indicated?

How is it performed?

The intervention, in day hospital or outpatient, has a variable duration depending on the extension of the keloid. Surgical removal under local anesthesia.


Depends on the size of the keloid. Treatment is outpatient dermo-surgery, does not require hospitalization.
