Default Lower Lip Hemangioma

My daughter had a lower lip hemangioma as well. We did oral steroids, laser treatments, and oral steroid shots to her lip. Her lip became deformed after all these treatments.

We finally got it removed by Dr. Milton Waner at the Vascular Birthmark Institute in NYC. (We live in Chicago). I would recommend having it surgically removed as soon as possible. It will not involute ... it will come back ... My only regret is that we didn't get it removed sooner. My daughter was 17 months before we had it removed.
