Is surgery my only option to eliminate accumulated skin that has built up after an injury and post healing to my eyelid?

Q:

I grazed my eyelid by mistake over a pillow zipper.  It bled a little and healed in a few days with medication from my Ophthalmologist.  However there is now an accumulation of skin on my eyelid post healing which I need to get rid of.  My Ophthalmologist suggests that it could be keloids.  I would rather not go the surgical way if I can help it to have this corrected and the skin removed.  Please advise if there is a less drastic way to treat this or is surgery my only option.

A:

It is difficult to answer your question because we do not know what you mean by "skin accumulation."  Keloids are very rare on the eye lids.

You should be examined by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for his/her advice.
