Ear Keloid Removal - Chevron Advanced Medical

Ear Keloid Removal

Keloids are firm, rubbery growths due to overactive scar formation. On the ear, they can occur in the cartilage or earlobe. Keloids occur due to trauma or infection to the skin - such as from an ear piercing or infection. Keloids can grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound, become raised and can distort the shape of the ear. They can also be itchy or painful.

Dr Andrew (Aung) Thant offers surgical excision in combination with supplementary techniques to remove the keloid and minimize the chance of recurrence. He has been successfully treating ear keloids for many years. He is an accredited skin cancer doctor with the Skin Cancer College of Australasia.

Some patients have put off treating their keloids after having experienced painful steroid injections. The treatments here are done under local anaesthetic, for maximum comfort. 

How to book: 

  • First, send us an email with a photo of your keloid/s and information about any previous treatment you have had. 
  • Dr Andrew will let you know if your keloid is suitable for treatment with us and give you an exact quote. 
  • You can also book a consult with Dr Andrew if you want to see him in person. Standard consult fees apply. 


  • Surgical removal of keloid: approximately $600, depending on the size, location and number of keloids. Your Medicare rebate is $41.
