Default Hemangioma

We had our last laser treatment last week for our daughters lip H and Dr Waner decided that he will cut the H out in June when she turns 8 months. I have a question to those who dealt with the operation. He quicly explained to us that he will take the H out from inside of the lip. Does that mean she will have a scar inside of her lip?? Before the procedure we will definetly sit with him and let him explain to us the whole procedure. But right now i just want to know has anyone dealt with a lip surgery?? I will attach a pic of my daughters lip H please give me some feedback b/c I am very nervous about the whole thing especially her having a scar outside of her lip.

Hello. Your daughter is beautiful! I have heard Dr. Waner doing lip surgery from the inside...so that is probably the way he is planning right now. It would be a good idea to sit down and ask as many questions as you have about the surgery before hand. Remember, things can change between now and June and even once she is under for the surgery.

Good luck and keep us posted.
