Keloid Fibrosarcoma

Keloid Fibrosarcoma Regression

31 year old African-American female with a history of a chest keloid previously excised 3 times between the 2002 and 2003 without radiation treatment. Keloid recurred all three times. At the time of first telephone consult on October 14, 2010, a picture of the keloid was sent (below)

On November 9, 2010, the day of surgery, keloid changed dramatically displaying a deep red bulbous mass at the midsternal level. (pictured below)

Complete wide excision with negative margins, revealed an Adult Fibrosarcoma grade 2 arising from a scar. The patient was also treated with post-operative radiotherapy.

Skin Keloid Tests and Exams

Keloid diagnosis is made on the basis of physical examination of the scar and surrounding skin. Obtaining a skin biopsy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis and reject a possibility of other skin growths such as tumors. A keloid should be examined by a physician or a surgeon to decide upon the optimal course of treatment.

Happy Clients

  • I am so thankful to have come across Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj of The Aesthetic Institute of New York & New Jersey. "Dr. S." (as I like to call him for obvious reasons, haha) is a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, and it turns out he has an entire website dedicated to his work with African-American patients: www.africanamericanrhinoplasty.com. I was immediately impressed with the wealth of information that he has on his site, including information about his practice, his stellar credentials, his surgical inventions (i.e., the SLUPimplant™) ...

  • I was terrified of having surgery but after two consultations with Dr. S., my anxiety was alleviated, and this was my biggest hurdle. I was able to see what my results would be after surgery through "computer imaging". He spent as much time with me as needed and said I could come back as many times as I wanted before making a decision. That was refreshing. I asked to speak with at least 3 other patients of Dr. S. and did. They shared my initial fear and they helped me by explaining their experiences from a patient's point of view! Dr. S. specia...

  • The doctor is very approachable and personable and I felt that he is really listening to me. He made every effort to be easily accessible via email or phone. He also followed me every step of the process, not only during the surgery but also during the recovery period.

  • Board Certified with specialized training and loads of experience in Nose Surgery. I was able to see and discuss my results beforehand thru computer imaging so I felt very comfortable with what my result would be. Having consulted with other Drs. who did not have same training, imaging and were twice the surgical cost, I made my decision.

  • Dr. S. is excellent. From the first visit to the follow-ups I always felt comfortable. Look great and feel great, have recommended him others. Really great bedside manner and I was not the best patient. Thanks Dr. S. I really appreciate your patience!!

  • I had a Rhinoplasty done by Dr. S. and he did exactly what I wanted, which was a custom bridge implant.

  • As a 74 year old African-American woman, I was apprehensive regarding the SLUPlift™ Surgery. In the past, when I discussed plastic surgery with family and friends they spoke negatively about the surgery. Eventually I decided it was something I wanted to do for myself. I found Dr. Slupchynskyj while surfing the Internet and reviewing several of his before and after photos. After meeting the Dr. he assured me that I would be OK — and he was correct. After the surgery I did not have to take any pain medication and I was out shopping within 4 d...
  • Worth It
    I am a 27 year old, African-American female from the Midwest and I just recently had a Rhinoplasty procedure performed on February 9, 2012. I had known for a long time that I wanted to have the procedure done to correct a bump in the bridge of my nose, reduce the width of my nose, as well as to refine my down-turned nasal tip. This was an operation that I was not going to trust to just anybody, so I spent countless hours researching and looking for a surgeon who had significant experience working with African-American patients. Because I liv...
