Aradi et al studied 21 earlobe keloids that were treated using keloidectomy with core fillet flap and given intraoperative intralesional steroid injections. This study showed an efficacy of 87.6%. Immediate recurrence was 9.5%, with an average of 29.9 months of follow up and with few complications encountered. Subjectively, 82.3% of patients were satisfied. [8]
