My daughter had a very similar looking hemangioma in the middle of her forehead. We also tried the "wait and see" approach before finally seeing a plastic surgeon when she was about 10 months old. He recommended surgery due to the size and location of her hemangioma. We were told it would eventually go away on its own, but she would be left with a significant scar. After this opinion we sought opinions from doctors all over the US. Our daughter ended up having surgery with Dr. Reinisch in LA when she was 13 months old. He was wonderful and we could not be more pleased with the results or more comfortable with our decision. She is now almost two and her scar looks amazing.
If I can help in any way or you would like to see before/after pictures please let me know. Good luck!!
Rory
