Psychiatrist: An evaluation by a psychiatrist with experience with transgender patients is an essential early step in beginning the process. Their job is not to talk you out of it but rather to help you prepare the for the process. I know of no surgeon who would perform gender reassignment surgery without a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation.

No way to guarantee: If you have a history of keloids, there is certainly a risk of developing keloids from piercings of other skin injuries. There is no guaranteed way to prevent them. If you don't have a history of keloids its less likely you'll get them in any event.

7-14 days: If a burn doesn't heal in 7-14 days, a full thickness skin injury may have occurred. This type of injury often results in scarring and if large enough would be a candidate for skin grafting. Keep the wound clean, protect it with antibiotic ointment until it heals but if it hasn't healed in 10 days from the time of injury, consult a plastic surgeon. If it does heal it'll need sun protection.
