My Health Update #5 – (follow up at the plastic surgeon)

M

Almost a month to the day of the Mohs surgery (12/6) that took a substantial chunk out of my face, I went in to see how the plastic surgery I had on 12/23 was healing. It’s absolutely incredible to me how much the body and modern medicine can do together.
