What happens after the skin cancer is removed?

At the end of the Mohs surgery, you will be left with a surgical wound. This wound will be dealt with in one of several ways. The options will be discussed with you in order to provide the best possible functional and cosmetic results.


We encourge you to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you might have about a particular condition and the proper treatments. Come in or give us a call to set up a consultation to discuss the treatment process.

Post-Surgical examination

Dr. Allen carefully examines you after Mohs surgery to determine which method will leave you with the smallest, least noticeable scar. Some of the options include healing by granulation (no stitches), closing the wound with straight line stitches, using a skin graft or using a skin flap (plastic surgery).
