Default LM in cheek

My 8 year old was recently diagnosed with a LM in his left cheek. It only took 7 drs, a CT and a MRI to get it diagnosed. We've been to a interventional radiologist here in Dallas who is reported to be at the top of her field. We've also met with a top craniofacial plastic dr that's very good. Those of you who have had only injections how successful have they been? His formation is microcysts. The ENT and crainofacial drs have both suggested that we do surgery first to remove most of the mass. Because they like to have the "cleanest" surgical field (no scaring caused by injections). I would like to hear from people that have had both procedures spefically in the cheek area. Thanks!!
