Default Hemanioma on breast now 14 and wanting surgery

Hiya, my daughter developed a hemangioma on her chest when she was just a few weeks old, this grew in size considerably and she was put on steroids to stop it growing any more. We were told that it would gradually shrink over time and the bright red would disappear. She is now fourteen and the birthmark did shrink and the redness faded but we are now faced with a new problem. She has not got a nipple on that side where the birthmark was and has a considerably smaller breast on this side being a 34 B whereas the other breast is 34 DD.

We have been advised that she could have a breast implant to even up the difference in sizes which she is keen to have done.

Anyone else on here with a birthmark that is on the breast?
