I had a keloid and I want to know if I could add earlobe because I don't have one

Q:

I had a keloid and I want to know if I could add earlobe because I don't have one.  I need a new earlobe, is this possible?

A:

 The answer is yes, someone could make you a new ear lobe. However the high probability of reoccurrence of a Keloid associated with that surgery should preclude it being performed. In short, Yes but, you will probably form another Keloid. Best,
