3 Month old scar: Are you sure there are not edges of the lesion still present? Or is this scar tissue forming. Best to see the doctor who did the surgery.

Yes. Yes: Pink color normal for this stage. All mole excisions leave scars. Amount of scarring dependent on patient age, body part and individual variability.
