ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Kenrick Spence is a renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon based in Orlando, Florida. Considered a chief authority in the field of cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Spence serves patients both locally and internationally. Recently, USA Today turned to Dr. Spence for his knowledge and expertise in treating keloid scars. The USA Today article, entitled "Things You Didn't Know About C-sections: There's Still Postpartum Bleeding," discusses keloid scarring as a common concern for women after cesarean deliveries.
Cesarean delivery is a major surgical procedure that many women undergo. Whether the C-section is elected or necessary due to a medical emergency during delivery, the incision site often does not heal the way other traumatized areas do. Keloid scars are a result of an overproduction of collagen, which can lead to large, extending scars that go well beyond the borders of the incision.
As the Medical Director and Chief Plastic Surgeon at the Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, Dr. Spence weighs in on the topic in the USA Today article by saying that "that keloids can be a common occurrence after C-sections and since there's an urgency when performing these surgeries, that information may not have been communicated."
Dr. Kenrick Spence is a highly sought-after plastic surgeon and the medical director of the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center in Orlando, which has been recognized as a Center of Excellence. The Center utilizes the most advanced surgical procedures in the field of keloid scar treatment combining precision surgery for the keloid removal and reconstruction followed immediately by three successive treatments of Superficial Radiation Therapy via the SRT -100+. Dr. Spence is known for his understanding of how keloid scars can affect a person as a whole, the varied reasons and locations of keloids and highly customized protocol for each patient.
"Scars are very personal things, and if someone is not comfortable in his or her skin, I want them to know that there are treatment options to help, especially in the case of scars left on a woman after delivering a baby," says Dr. Kenrick Spence.
Along with his specific treatment center for keloid scars, Dr. Kenrick Spence also leads Hillcrest Plastic Surgery. This practice offers a full range of cosmetic procedures and minimally invasive, no-downtime procedures for facial rejuvenation, body contouring and advanced skincare.
