Is there any preoperatively test that predispose adverse wound healing after cosmetic surgery, such as abnormal scar formation

Before cosmetic surgery the doctor mostly ask to perform a total bloot count and several more tests. Is there any preoperatively test that predispose adverse wound healing after cosmetic surgery, such as abnormal scar formation or excess edema?

keloid scar is in 90% produced in dark skinned people, in light color skin people you may predict a keloid  if you touch the sternal zone or the upper shoulders , without taking  account sex, age and race
