Thanks for the query.keloid are most common on chest and shoulder but one should have keloidal tendency to get that.Do you have any history od keloidal tendency?Least percentage are affected by keloids so i advise you to go for laser therapy rather than excision and grafting as auregry has cerain high risk of keloid formation than lasers that too non ablative.
