Appearance of skin graft after Mohs reconstruction
Is this a normal appearance for 1 week after a Mohs graft on nose?
Skin graft question...
Skin grafts are fragile repairs that simply take a bit more time to heal than other methods. Overall yes I think the graft looks fine and the darkness that you are seeing is common and will most likely resolve. Think of the graft like planting a piece of sod grass...it is harvested from somewhere and placed somewhere else. In the process, the graft must recreate its root system and "take" to the new location. There may be a few parts of the graft that struggle a bit more but overall I think it looks like it will be ok. Be sure to follow your instructions, which likely call for keeping it greased up with Vaseline (or similar).
