WILL I GET A SCAR AFTER MOHS’ MICROGRAPHIC SURGERY?

One always gets a scar after any surgery. Mohs’ Surgery is a method of tumor removal. In most cases, one will receive plastic surgery to repair the defect after the tumor is removed. Therefore, it is essential to choose a surgeon who will repair the defect carefully, as this will have a significant impact on the final cosmetic result. Obviously there are many other factors that play a role in the final cosmetic outcome, including the size of the tumor, the location of the tumor, & the depth of the tumor.

As Mohs’ surgery removes the least amount of normal skin it should have a cosmetic result that is superior to other forms of surgical removal (excision).
