Confusion About Scaring
Regardless of your personal or family history, true keloid scar formation is extremely unlikely on the breasts. Even the other bad scars known as hypertrophic, are rare on breast tissue. This is the nature of the breast skin, and we are fortunate of this.
As for injection with steroids, this is not necessarily a good idea. My preferred technique is to avoid thick scars (hypertrophic) in the first place, and using paper tape for a few months to cover your incisions does the job nicely.
Find a surgeon that is certified by the ABPS and a member of the ASAPS who does complex revision breast surgery as a specialty.
Best of luck!

Keloiding is always a possibility especially if its happened before.
Since it doesn't allows happen and there are things we can do to try and minimize such as support the breast and don't allow a lot of tension. Steroids are always a possibility but its better to wait and see how the scar is progressing rather than just always inject. They have some side effects also.
Also, the older you are the less chance of thicker scars
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
best of luck!
