What Can I Expect After Mohs Surgery On My Nose ?

how painful is it?

Answer

Valerie, I had the Moh's surgery on three places on my face, including my nose. I wish I could tell you how you will feel, but everyone heals differently. You will probably be sore, and common on the face, swollen. You may notice bruising too. How your body reacts and how deep or wide they have to go to remove the growth will be the major factors. I am glad to hear your skin specialist is doing the Moh's procedure, because there is less likelihood the growth will return, especially important on the face. Discuss pain control with your surgeon and pay particular attention to your aftercare instructions for the best result.
