hemangioma on the lip
hi my names lauren, im 18 years old and been living with a massive h on my face all my life. its completely disformed my lip, ive had plastic surgery on it and its improved it abit but doctors have told me there's nothing more they can do. my lip still sticks out quite alot, it is still discoloured and i have 2 large scars on it now. as a child i used to be full of confidence and it never really effected me but the older i get the more it worries me. its getting harder and harder to leave my house each day as i feel like all eyes are on me no matter where i go. i am married and have a 2 year old boy but i still feel like i cant 100% relax around my husband because i feel as though he wont like me anymore (although deep down i know im just being silly because hes not like that at all) my son will soon be at an age where he will be going to nursery and that panics me so much because i know how cruel children can be and i dont want him to get bullied because his mummy isnt ''normal'' i really dont know what to do now, i desperately want another operation but my surgeon is adiment he wont do anything more to me,, please help :( xxxx i fell like i have all this confidence bubbling up inside of me trying to get out but this depression is stopping it! i just want to be my care free 10 year old self again :(

Hi Mrslae

Im a 28 year old female with a PWS on my left cheek, One thing I have learnt over the years is to show your confidence to everyone you meet, if you are not feeling confident then act confident, over time - and it will take time you will start to feel as confident as you are acting. Yes people are cruel and the staring is not nice, hold your head up high and dont acknowledge them. Your son will see this and will stick up for you, he will be fine. Also try Dermablend cover cream over your lip, it is a great makeup to cover flaws.
