In brief: Depends on size

Most keloids can be excised under local anesthesia as outpatient procedures.
But this also depends on size, location, and severity of the keloid scarring, as well as the surgeon's recommendations. Furthermore, excision often leads to a larger keloid, so consider this carefully. Dr. Tholen.
