Keloid Scar

Hi
I have 2 keloid scars on my ear lobe. Who would I go to, to have them cut off? A dermatologist or a plastic surgeon?
My normal GP said he could cut it off but I worry about it coming back worse...
Thanks

Hallo Karen
Keloid tends to recur when removed, unless treated with cortisone injections or laser so rather see a plastic surgeon?
