I believe that laser was the best decision because surgery might remove part of the lip in order to clean it from the H.
You just have to be patient and o not get disppointed because the H might be appearing again and again.
Have faith you wii eventually beat it!
When did you start seeng progression as soon as the 3 laser??? Did the dr tell you to have more after?? You see our third one is next week and I am praying that we will see good results. From the first time our Dr. said she will need 3 or 4 I guess it's for a reason they give you that number. After the 3rd laser did his lip started to look a little normal?? Meaning did the swelling go away??
