She is so cute! Our ped was also very opposed to surgery and thought I was overreacting. My daugther's hemangioma was on her right eyelid, started out the size of a tiny little dot, and by the time she was five months, had grown significantly to where it was hindering her vision. I could no longer wait and see and had to do something!
I broke out in a cold sweat when I told our ped that we were going out of our network to Dr. Reinisch in LA to have him do the surgery. Our doctor as well as at least three others including dermatologists, opthamologits, etc...all thought I was making the wrong decision and that it was too aggressive of treatment.
Well, the surgery was a success, the hemangioma is a thing of the past, and every single doctor who has seen my daughter since has been amazed by the wonderful results! So, they are all really eating their words!!! Dr. Reinisch as well as the East Coast doctors are AMAZING.
Do what works for YOU and for your beautful daughter. We went against every doctor's advice and had Dr. R remove Sophia's eyelid and it was the best decision we could have ever made!
Best of luck!
