I am from Malaysia and no expert here, 8 doctors told me wait and see and suggest the surgery after 4 years.Their approach is totally different from what I read from internet and forum.I never give up, I pray a lot and lastly Dr Marcelo Hochman had given my little princess a little pretty cute nose.Wooow....all the worry and anxious gone away.
I faced your situation before, but please believe no need to wait until 2, it will be hard time for both of u and baby.Why not go for pranalol and surgery earlier, find the right speacilist to help you.

or look for nose hemangioma.Below is the reply from 2 expert surgeon.
Please do not worry - the timing for your baby's surgery is perfect for this type of hemangioma. Remember that our goals are the same - to do the best for your child.
I look forward to seeing you in Manila.
Dear Mrs. Yen ,
Thank you for your email and please accept my apology for not answering sooner. In general, hemangiomas such as your son's should be surgically removed at about 10 months of age. In the meantime, he should be treated with a drug called propranolol. This will shrink the hemangioma and probably make the surgery easier. If you wish to talk with me personally, I could arrange a telephone call in the next few days. My website at www.vbiny.org
