I had basal cell carcinoma on my nose. Apparently it was about the size of a pea and I had MOH's surgery to remove it. The following day I had plastic surgery to close it up. I believe I have about 20 stitches currently. The plastic surgeon did a skin flap reconstruction from skin from my nose.
The skin flap pulled skin from my left eye. It is extremely tight and looks lopsided and makes my eye really tired. Will it loosen up and even out when the stitches are out?

I can't tell what recovery I will have and how much of a scar I will have, but the doctors I was referred to were excellent. Bedside manner, compassion, ease, experience, knowledge, and location of their practice made me feel very confident in their ability to make me look as less of a freak as possible.
