I would like to have a breast lift with implant and understand I have a greater risk of keloid scarring. From my research on this website I see that there are preventative treatments such as silicone sheet therapy/injections etc. I would like to find a surgeon with experience of breast lift surgery on black women and in particular the post-op preventative management. Although I would prefer Edinburgh, I would be willing to travel anywhere in the UK to see a doctor with this experience.
Can Anyone Recommend a Doctor in Edinburgh with Experience of Post-op Treatments to Reduce the Risk of Keloid Scarring?

You should look for a list of board certified of the plastic surgeon society ok UK , make your selection after being sure this person belongs it , \Keep in mind that keloids is a condition of the patient and some times with best surgeons can be present
Experience of Post-op Treatments to Reduce the Risk of Keloid Scarring?
Since this is an educational website, surgeons typically will not make specific recommendations by name. Calling around and looking at websites may be more helpful.
Keloids and hypertrophic scars are so common that all plastic surgeons deal with them and have experience. I would sooner look for expertise in breast plastic surgery rather than in scar management!
All the best.
