Yesterday, I had Moh's surgery on a squamous cell cancer on my right sideburn area. As always, some incisions were made after deadening, an area was removed, an hour wait as they analyzed the tissue, and finally, the incisions was closed. From what I understand, additional skin is removed to make an oblong diamond shaped area, which prevents puckering of the skin after healing.
My last surgery was about the same, which left a long incision and me wondering if it would leave a Frankenstein appearance to my face. Due to the expertise of my surgeon, it takes some close looking to see where it was, and I expect this one will be the same.
