I am a 36 year old female. I had Mohs surgery on my temple. My hole is big and it is pretty deep. They went three rounds. My question is, is it better to heal by secondary intention or to have a plastic surgery with flap in which he would take skin from behind the wound on my head? Will it mean the hair will be placed on my temple? Would I have to shave it? So, in that case I need to deal with now two wounds. How easily and long will my wound heal naturally considering the depth? And how long do I keep a band-aid with vaseline on for if I go that route?
