I started seeing Dr. Tirgan sometime in Nov of 2014. I’ve tried cryotherapy and chemo drug injection. As Dr. Tirgan says both involve some pain and cryotherapy tends to be messy. But the results are good, the keloid is softer and thinner. Dr. Tirgan doesn’t make you feel like there’s only a short amount of time to see him and he treats you like a normal person.

Not only is he the leading expert in Keloids, he is always responsive and will go out of his way to attend to his patient’s needs. After visiting multiple dermatologists with no results, I will only trust Dr. Tirgan to continue with his proven treatment methods.

Understanding Keloid Disorder

Keloid is a very hard to treat skin disorder, which negatively affects many aspects of patients’ lives. Keloid Disorder can present itself either as a single small spot on the skin or appear as multiple lesions spread across several areas of the body. In some patients, keloid lesions can grow to form a large skin tumor. Keloid has a genetic component, often runs in families, and is most often seen in Africans/African Americans and Asian populations, although it has been reported in individuals from almost all ethnic backgrounds. If someone is predisposed to the condition, a keloid appears only after an injury to the skin, which can happen in myriad ways such as ear piercing, acne, surgery, chicken-pox, etc.

The second most common type of injury to the ear is surgery, either to remove a previously formed keloid, or surgery for other reasons, such as otoplasty to reshape the ears, or face-lift surgery
