MOHs - Inner Ear: Heal on Own Vs Graph?
Had MOHs surgery today to remove basal cell inside my ear. 42 yr old white male. Most of the inside skin was scraped out. At a glance it was missing so much the skin it was all white. I was told there was cartilage involvement which was scraped also, but the structure remained intact. I initiated a conversation about a graph for repair. He said it would be best healing on its own. He did punch about 9 holes and said this will help the skin fill in the area. Am considering a plastic surgeon. Thoughts?
