Keloid or hypertrophic scars can form from previous trauma to the ear or most common ear piercing. Keloids especially can get very large and noticeable, affecting self-esteem and confidence.
I met with Dr. Parikh for a consultation about having the kieloids on my ear lobes removed and ended up having the surgery that day. Dr. Parikh, as well as the entire staff at RP Plastic Surgery we’re professional and very nice. Dr. Parikh went out of his way to take care of my procedure in a kind and timely fashion. I would highly recommend him to anyone. K.K.
