Is it normal for a shave biopsy to look like this after 4 months? (Photo)

You clearly have visible pigmented nevus within your site of the biopsy. Such finding can happen with a shave biopsy of a deeper nevus. It can be result of either a residual nevus or recurrent nevus at the site of the biopsy. While it is reassuring that the original biopsy came benign, it would be prudent to see a dermatologist to determine if additional re-excision is necessary especially if you are noticing a change in this pigmentation.
