Procedure Details


ーーKey points of the designーー

The angle of the mouth is raised in the same direction as the healthy side.

The thickest part of the keloid is excised, provided that the wound does not cross the line that connects to the mastoid labial fold.

Extend the wound vertically.

We designed a contiguous anomalous skin valve with emphasis on the above three points. The shaded area is the keloid area to be resected.

ーーImmediately after surgeryーー

The skin was extended vertically and the keloids were removed horizontally, and the skin was replaced to obtain symmetry of the corners of the mouth.
