Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations. This was my first surgery to remove a basal cell lesion. I am grateful that the lesion has been removed but I am very disappointed with the cosmetic results.
Two days after I had the stitches removed from the skin graft, the lower rim separated. I got wonderful advice from this site which I followed. I called the answering service and my surgeon just happened to be on call. He had me come in two days later to have a look. He had a look and said it was fine so off I went with confidence and relief.
I noticed more and more that it appeared the whole graft had migrated upward. Now there is a pile of tissue in the corner of my eye. It is hard as a rock. There's also a black spot in middle of it which I assume will go away.
I can't afford cosmetic surgery. I shouldn't have hoped for more. My surgeon is qualified to do Mohs and has terrific credentials. I am blessed to have him. I guess I'll know what to expect if I have it again.
