Just an update we , currently have a second surgery scheduled for July 14 at the new surgical facility in bucks county PA . Dr low will be working again and using stronger sutures this time adult strength . As to hold the insccsion closed tighter And stronger . He feels that there a good possibility that she shouldn't need any other surgery after this on . I'm hoping.

Default 17 year daughter has lip hemangiomas

My daughter has lip hemangiomas (very bulky) and scheduled for a plastic surgery with Dr. David Low in two weeks. I would like to talk to kdiperi and any other patient who may had similar surgery done by Dr. Low.

would appreciate if you can contact me at "indra.khatri5@gmail.com"

Default Reply in regards

I do apologize for not contacting you sooner . Yes our daughter is doing much better now . We had another surgery a few weeks later to fix the issue where her lip had reopened . I had contacted a few different doctors in regards to the issue . All the doctors kept saying that Low is a true pioneer in the field and he has a very concertive way of doing things . So with that we had him redo the surgery ASAP . Her lipped amazing compared to what it looked like before and after the surgery . She has a full lip now very little puffiness but still has some red blotchy areas. We are going back to him in October or November for laser treatment to help flatten out the area and get rid of the red discoloration.

That time we went thought though after her surgery had to be one of the hardest times we had ever gone through . I had to literally pull my daughters lip together and put support tape on it to hold her lip together just so she could eat . Poor girl couldn't drink with out fluid leaking out of her mouth , she constantly drooled , etc .........

Thank god she's much better now , I will post pictures this evening .
