Case Study for Keloid Removal
Ralph's Keloid Removal Surgery
At Mabrie Facial Cosmetic Surgery our goal is to deliver exceptional care, consisting of excellent medical care and outstanding customer service. The following is a case study of a keloid removal surgery.
Ralph Wilson is a 19 year old foster child who suffered from keloid scarring on both of his ears. Lori Cohee of the Foster a Dream foundation contacted Dr. Mabrie to have Ralph's wish be granted: Removing the keloids from his ears to in turn restore his self-confidence.
"Growing up in foster care makes you feel like an outcast, like you don't belong and you're different. I had it even worse. For years, I have had to hide behind a hoodie or a beanie. It's hard to walk with your head held high when everyone is staring at you. During "Get Set" [A Foster a Dream Event], I broke down and started to cry. I shared a lot with Ms. Lori [Lori Cohee, Office Supervisor with Foster a Dream] and she asked "What can we do to make you happy?" Without saying a word to her, she offered to find a doctor to fix my ears, and then my smile appeared."
Final Result: What a success!
Dr. Mabrie surgically removed Ralph's keloids, and the results are excellent. Ralph is able to smile with confidence and pride, and is thrilled that he no longer needs to hide behind a hat. "I feel blessed that they are removed, I feel better as a young man."
