Default My twelve year old

When my daughter was born we noticed a red mark under her right nipple. As she grew this mark grew as well. The doctor told us that it was a raised strawberry birthmark and that we could only remove it when she is twelve years old (when it stopped growing). Well now she is twelve years old and the thought of showing her chest to a doctor is out of the question. She is well endowed for her age and is embarrassed to show anyone her birthmark. I feel bad for her because she hates her birthmark and says it looks ugly but modesty is stopping her from showing anyone. Were the doctors correct did we have to wait until it stopped growing or could we have removed it earlier?
