Question

I suffer from keloids, will that cause too much scarring if I have a rhinoplasty?

Also I am taking Venlafaxine will that affect the surgery?

Answer

As a matter of experience, a tendency to keloids does not seem to affect the quality of the scars following rhinoplasty.

Venlafaxine is a common treatment and does not seem to have negative impact on surgical interventions.
