Potential Scarring from Smart Lipo?

I am dark skinned (type 5) and am considering Smart (Laser) Liposuction. I have a history of keloid scarring. Are there any other risks of scarring other than at the incision sites?

I was reading a case were a woman experienced keloid scarring and dark spots after Vaser. I am aware of treatments for keloids and will be prepared to care for the incision sites. However I do not want to run the risk of any other type of scarring.
