The cost of keloid removal ranges from $75 to upward of $2,000 depending on the type and duration of treatment. Keloid removal is considered a cosmetic procedure, therefore is not usually covered by health insurance. As a rule of thumb, larger, more severe keloids will cost more to remove.
Keloids are raised scars that can occur anywhere on the body, and while keloids aren’t harmful, a person might find them painful and unattractive and seek medical treatment to remove the scar.
