Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

A "mulligan," simply put is a "do-over" of a golf shot typically from a tee that doesn't count in one's final tally of strokes. In dermatologic surgery, it would be wonderful to call for a "mulligan" or "do-over" when a misadventure occurs. Magically, all better. Unfortunately, "do-overs" do not exist. We will present dermatologic surgical cases and scenarios representing different procedures, excisional and aesthetic, that resulted in a misadventure or adverse event; go through a root cause analysis of what didn't go as planned; and if we had a surgical "do-over, what would we have done differently.
