FAQ – Lip scars after MOHS surgery

I had MOHS surgery and my lip scar is very visible the edges are not aligned can anything be done about this?
Yes. The lip is very delicate structure to operate on because it is a focal point of the face even 1mm of miss match of the lip line is noticed at conversational distance. Lip scars when revised must be meticulously put back together. Dr. Spence may at first use just a few units of Botox in the lip to soften muscle activity around the time of surgery. At six weeks after surgery laser therapy is very helpful in achieving even a fine scar.
I had MOHS surgery on my lips for skin cancer and my lip looks like it has a dent in it can this be fixed.
Yes. When the lip muscle is not included in the repair the lip can have the appearance of having a dent in the lip.
After MOHS surgery on my lips it looks like I had a cleft lip.
This can often be made to look better with the use of fat grafting and laser resurfacing. This can be performed under local anesthesia.
My lip scar is wide and thick after skin cancer surgery.
Scar revision of the lip with release of additional lip tissue to reduce the tension on the lip repair is the method used by Dr. Spence to repair atrophic lip scars.
