About Our Office

Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons

OfficeBe careful with what you read elsewhere and do your homework. The only two medical specialties that have formal training in their residency programs and treat keloids very frequently are the dermatologists and the plastic and reconstructive surgeons.Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons are the only specialists with formal training in residency that will take care of the large and most complex keloids and ugly scars from head to toe, using surgical techniques in which many times flaps have to be formed to cover large defects (Z-plastics and rotation flaps). As Plastic Surgeons, aesthetic principles are always considered to get the most pleasing results.

At The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center, keloids are what we do. We are the only Plastic Surgery Office in South Florida run by two board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, and one of the few in the U.S.A. using the latest XRT technology to treat keloids with proven lower recurrence rates.

Our doctors at The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center are board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons that have treated keloids from most if not all parts of the body. Dr. Roberto Mendez and Dr. Gabriel Salloum have treated not only the simplest but also the most complex and severe types of keloids. Among them are keloid scars after surgery for the removal of the appendix, removal of the gallbladder, removal of part of the bowel, C- Section, Cardiothoracic surgery, liposuction, Breast Surgery, Tummy Tuck, and orthopedic surgery. We have treated patients from all over the world, including from Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Being well aware of the fact that keloids can harm your quality of life as well as self-esteem at The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center, you will be thoroughly examined, and an individualized plan of treatment will be planned for you. Our goal is to provide you with the best modality of treatment for your keloid.

Most of the patients we have treated have had previous surgical and non-surgical treatments of the keloids. Don’t be discouraged from failure in the past. We will be happy to evaluate you in a complimentary FREE consultation.

For your convenience, we speak English, Spanish, French, and Creole.

Our Doctors

Our Doctors

Dr. Roberto J. Mendez and Dr. Gabriel Salloum decided to form The Keloid Plastic Surgery Center because they have both witnessed how devastating the keloids can be and because most physicians are frustrated with the usual modalities of treatment for keloids. They are both board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons who combined have over 37 years in practice.They have treated thousands of patients since they started their practices, and among those are patients with keloids that have been severe, complex, and that have recurred from previous treatments.They believe in the same principles of providing the highest standards of care and in treating patients with the utmost respect they deserve. They have always focused on the basic principle that patients always come first.
