Surgery?: Some large or complex keloids need considerably more than 7 injections to resolve; but if your keloid is not budging, you might consider consulting a qualified dermatologic or plastic surgeon about the possibility of removing it surgically.

Scar revision : Excising the scar and performing a scar revision may be a good option for improving the appearance of the scar. Steroid and 5-fluorouracil injections may still need to be administered to achieve the best cosmetic outcome.

Scars don't go away: They are the result of healing and are permanent. They do, however, mature, i.e. With time. There are some treatments and procedures that may hasten their maturation and make their appearance less objectionable. A plastic surgeon or dermatologist would be a good place to start.
