How do I prevent a keloid after an open heart surgery from getting bigger?
Thank you for the question about a keloid after open heart surgery. These are very commonly seen and can be controlled with a combination treatment of VBEAM laser and steroid injections into the scar. Early treatment of your scar will lead to better results and helps to prevent scar worsening. Depending on the size and thickness of your scar, repeated 4-5 treatments 1 month apart are usually required to flatten and lighten the scar.
Do see a doctor or dermatologist experienced in scar treatment for help.
