Default Hi do any one have the same problem.

Hi,

I am karthik age 25,my right half of the face has red mark, and due to this there was a deviation in my face and lips, i wish to get treated.

When i was child the red mark doesnt show any difference but when i was 10 it started bulging and my right half of the face became assymetry.

I didnt feel bad about this now ,but my parents want this to be treated.

Does anyone have the same problem? if so can you please let me know the treatment you have undergone.

Also can you please let me know where it can be treated.

Attaching my photo for reference.

looking forward for a reply.

Regards,
Karthik

Hi, Karthik.
I have not had any experience with this, because my daughter is only two, but I have had a lot of help when I contacted the experts on the front page of this website. They are very helpful, and if you attach the picture and ask them the same questions, then I bet you could find the answers you are looking for.

Here is a link to the "ask the surgeon" page (I hope it works):

Hi Kartik,

I am from India. My name is Isha Deshpande. I have had PWS since birth on left side of my face. Back then when I was born, there weren't any treatments available in India. But now many treatments from laser to corrective surgeries are available. I had few laser sessions and couple of surgeries at Pandit's Clinic.

Dr. Shrirang Pandit is a plastic surgeon and they also specialize in many laser treatments. Maybe you can approach them.
See this :- http://www.panditclinic.com/about-us.php

You can take my word, Dr. Pandit is a really good plastic surgeon.
Here is their contact number :- +91- 20- 25534849

Let me know if you have any other queries.

Best regards,
Isha.

Isha,

Do you have any idea about how much they are charging for a laser session?

Regards,
Karthik
