Massage after mohs surgery
I would just massage when you think about it. You can never do it too much. It will take 6 months up to one year for the scar to fully mature. I find that lip closures take and will feel firm and tight for many, many months!
Typically, after Mohs surgery on the face, sutures are removed 7-10 days later. Keeping the wound clean and covered with ointment and a bandage are recommended until it has healed. Ultimately healing can take many months. If you have anything going on with the area such as a firm nodule that you may be massaging, you should be seen for scar treatment evaluation.
