Abstract

Following Mohs reconstruction, several options are available to improve the appearance of the resulting scars. It is critical that the patient has realistic goals before beginning any treatment because scars can be improved but never erased. The surgical and nonsurgical options aim to replace pre-existing scars with ones that are less conspicuous. This article addresses the different available options (listed in order of invasiveness) for improving scarring following Mohs reconstruction.
