“Fibrosis is the result of inflammation. Inflammation
caused by the injury, by the surgery, by a burn, whatever the cause
inflammation is one of two things that drive the growth of fibrosis
[i.e. scar tissue] … If the inflammation can be brought under control
the keloid formation might be arrested. Plastic surgeons routinely have
administered local injections of cortisone in attempts to slow down the
inflammation and stop the formation of keloids.
These attempts are mostly failures and if pronounced the
keloid itself may have to be surgically excised, which may in turn begin
the round of keloid formation all over again.” Cure for Keloids *
Sometimes a small surgical scar/wound where skin and the connective tissue layers beneath are
involved hopefully is healing without the formation
of keloids. What are keloids?
They are hard, unsightly scars raised up, overgrown connective tissue, essentially a form of fibrosis
/ scar tissue.
