Piercing your ears puts the earlobes at risk for stretching, tearing and Keloids scarring (a benign growth on scar tissue). Because of their location, the tears are often split and are very visible.
Earlobe repair surgery fixes the split and enables you to wear earrings again.
People who have Torn earlobes or elongated piercing tracts may benefit from this procedure.
A Keloids, which is an abnormal scar that is thicker and of a different color and texture than the rest of the skin. Keloids extend beyond the edge of the wound and are likely to come back. They often create a thick, puckered effect that looks like a tumor. Keloids are removed at the place where they meet normal tissue.
A scar that is at an angle to the normal tension lines of the skin.
A scar that is thickened.
A scar that causes distortion of other features or causes problems with normal movement or function.
Exams and Tests:
Diagnosis is based on the appearance of the skin or scar. A skin biopsy may be needed to rule out other skin growths (tumors).
Keloids often do not need treatment. They may be reduced in size by:
A small congenital growth on the human skin, usually slightly raised and dark and sometimes hairy, especially a pigmented nevus
They can be removed by two surgical methods:
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.
Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:
Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
Sebaceous cysts are small lumps or bumps just under the skin. To be more specific, they are closed sacs that contain keratin -- a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking protein that often has a foul odor.
Treatments for Sebaceous Cysts.
As stated, however, they may become inflamed and tender. Sometimes sebaceous cysts grow large enough that they may interfere with your everyday life. When this happens, surgical removal may be necessary, and this procedure can be done at your doctor's office. Small inflamed cysts can often be treated with an injection of steroid medications or with antibiotics.
Skin tag or fibroepithelial polyp, is a small benign tumor that forms primarily in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. They may also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. Acrochordon are harmless and typically painless, and do not grow or change over time.
Because tags are benign, treatment is unnecessary unless the tags become frequently irritated or present a cosmetic concern. If removal is desired or warranted, a dermatologist or similarly trained professional may use cauterization, cryosurgery, excision, or surgical ligation to remove the acrochorda.
Warts are small, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Most, but not all, are generally harmless.
Warts can be disfiguring and embarrassing. Sometimes they itch or hurt (particularly on the feet).
Treatment: Do not attempt to remove a wart yourself by burning, cutting, tearing, picking, or any other method.
Xanthelasma (or Xanthelasma Palpebrarum) is a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of cholesterol underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids. Although not harmful or painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed. They are common in people of Asian origin and those from the Mediterranean region.
Xanthelasmata can be regressed with a trichloroacetic acid peel, or completely removed with minor surgical skills.
