After mohs surgery on nose tip, plastic surgery done using the flap from my forehead, now deep red nose. Exactly 1 year now, will this go away?

Hmmmm, I hope it goes away.

I had Mohs and a flap just a little over a month ago and I still have redness too. I was hoping it would be gone in a year, now I'm wondering if it will be.

I do still put Mederma on it everyday. Hopefully that will help.

Dear LilMac,

I also had Moh's surgery (one stage) to remove a bcc from my nose tip.
It was in Feb. Now, 5 months later, my nose, also, is still really red. I went
for a check up with the dermatologist 2 wks. ago, and they said it was
absolutely normal - it apparently takes a really long time until our noses
will return to their original color. I am using a scar gel and also scar strips
on my nose every night. I guess we just have to be patient...!
