Rhinoplasty can be performed on people with a history of keloid scarring, but it’s important to choose a surgeon who has experience and expertise in performing rhinoplasty on patients with this condition. Keloid scarring can occur when the body overproduces collagen, which can lead to raised, thick scars that extend beyond the original wound or incision site. The nose is a complex structure, and the risk of keloid scarring is higher in people with darker skin tones, and in people who have a history of keloid scarring. It’s important to take preventative measures, such as cortisone injections, pressure dressings, and silicone sheeting, to minimise the risk of keloid scarring after surgery. Additionally, the surgeon should also be familiar with the latest techniques and technologies that can help minimise the risk of keloid scarring, such as laser therapy and cryotherapy. It’s essential to have a consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon that has performed rhinoplasty on patients with similar characteristics.
