Before & After pics of Ben (H surgery)
4 Attachment(s)
Hi All,

Well I'm FINALLY posting pics of Ben before and after his H surgery (5 1/2 mos. at time of surgery). Thanks to Missy for helping me figure out how to do it!

1) Before surgery (obviously)
2) Just after surgery (he was in no pain)
3) 2 weeks after
4) 2 weeks after

The after pics are a bit over-exposed so not the best as far as seeing the incision, but they're fairly accurate. Dr. Yokoo of Kaiser N. CA did a great job! We are supposed to keep tape on it for 2 mos.

Anyway, I'm hoping this helps some of you with your decision.

Best to you all,

Zoe, Ben looks wonderful. What a great job! It makes me feel better about our decision for Ashleigh to have surgery.

He looks amazing - and such a cutie pie! It is so good to know that if Clara's H does not go away on its own then surgery is definitely a great option. Thanks for posting the pics and for all your help too!

is this a kaiser permanente doctor?
Congratulations. Your son looks great. My 6 wk old son seems to have a hemangioma growing on his forehead. Did your son get treated through Kaiser Permanete> We are in the SF Bay Area. Thanks, Mariah
