Drinking after skin graft from Mohs
Alcohol is a blood thinner so if you have a large graft or very extensive procedure, it would be best to wait a few days. But if you're just having a bit of wine, it's ok.

Drinking and Surgery
I suggest waiting 3-5 days before drinking again, as it can thin the blood and cause bleeding as well as impaired wound healing. However, I have had plenty of patients who didn't want to follow those instructions/advice and they still had excellent outcomes. You decide and/or speak with your physician. Best, Dr. Emer.
Acohol/Wine and Skin Graft
Alcohol is a blood thinner and can increase the risk of bleeding in the immediate post-operative period. I advise my patients to avoid it for the first few days but check with your surgeon who performed the procedure.
