Will the surgery leave a scar?

Yes. Any form of treatment will leave a scar. However, because Mohs surgery removes as little normal tissue as possible, scarring is minimized. Also, complete healing of the surgical site may take up to 12 months. During this time, the surgical site may appear red or may feel swollen or lumpy, particularly in the first few months. We recommend that the site be gently massaged beginning 6 weeks after the procedure.
