Default Kayleigh's before and after pics

Hi all,
Not sure who remembers, but I posted before how my daughter Kayleigh was having her hemangioma surgically removed on Jan. 29. I am happy to say she did GREAT!! Dr. Lafairve did amazing work, and we can't get over how good she looks not even 2 weeks after. She did great through the general anesthesia and surgery, woke up happy and stayed that way! She hasn't touched her head at all, got right back into routine.. like nothing ever happened! We are confident we made the right decision for her, and couldn't be happier with the results.
FYI - she was 4 1/2 months at the time of surgery. The below pictures are 1)in the hospital before surgery, 2) right after surgery when we got home, and 3) 6 days post-op
4) UPDATED PICTURE AT 9 MONTHS OLD









If anyone has any questions, or wants to know more about the surgery, feel free to ask anything or email me!

I have a 2 and a half month old baby girl. Her "H" is about the same size that your daughters was. How were you able to get it removed? Doc's I have spoken with (pediatricians and plastic surgeons) have acted like I am crazy and should just leave it alone. It is now ulcerated (hers is on the face near her ear) and she wakes up at night when it rubs on blankets or whatever else it touches. My heart breaks to see this and like so many others, would give ANYTHING to see it gone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much, I pray I have half the luck you have had.

Hi everyone,
I updated the original post with a new picture of Kayleigh at 9 months old, as you can see, her scar is not even noticeable anymore. We are SO SO happy with the outcome of her surgery.

Mommy of 2 in KY - I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Waner in NYC. e-mail me privately if you like - I am sure there are options out there for you. He treated my daughter (who is now 3) with amazing results.

my daughter has them all over her on the outside, and also to many of them to count on her liver, but the docs keep saying just leave them alone.. i am so confused on what to do. I mean i know the ones on the inside can cause heart failure. what should i do?

Thank you so much for sharing your adorable daughter's pictures. We are due for a excision by Dr. Buckmiller in Jan/Feb and now I know a little more of what to expect when it comes to the one on his scalp. I didn't really get the details of that one at our last visit. The nose and lip excision will have small scars, but I couldn't wrap my head around what the scalp incision would look like. Thanks so much.
