Abstract

Mohs surgery patients were surveyed about their level of satisfaction following wound repair with primary closure, skin grafts or skin flaps. Older patients were significantly more likely to have greater satisfaction with their Mohs wound repairs, but repair size, type, and location were not related. Men trended toward greater wound repair satisfaction than women.
