Why do I have a blister like bump on lip after Mohs surgery for BCC just above lip line? (Photo)

Bump at incision site
While I have trouble seeing enough detail in your photo, the bump you describe at the lip line may represent scar tissue. Collagen formation is at its maximal at 6-8 weeks after surgery, and this often presents as a raised or bumpy scar. Scar massage and steroid injections may be helpful to flatten and soften scars. You would do well to follow-up with your surgeon for an in-person evaluation and discussion of treatment options. Good luck in your recovery.

often scar tissue on the lip from surgery in that location will result that can look like a bump but you should discuss with mohs or plastic surgeon.
I recommend you to discuss specific issues regarding your questions with your dermatologist.
Thank you for your question. It is hard to see what is going on with the photo you provided. It could be scar tissue in the area from the procedure. I would recommend you follow up with the surgeon for an evaluation.
