Is It Safe to Remove Skin Tags if I Had a Keloid?
The answer is, usually. Keloids are more likely to occur in the areas where you have them. If a skin tag is properly removed it should leave minimal scarring. However, given your history it would be best to see a plastic surgeon or dermatologist so if the areas are not healing properly, you can be treated rapidly and hopefully avoid any issues with keloid formation on your face.
