Default Surgery on lower lip H went well

My 2 year old (3 in May) just had surgery on Thursday on her divot left from her lower lip H. We decided to do it earlier than the suggested age of 4 or 5 because she had to have a nevus sebaceous removed and since there has been no change in the size of the H in over a year get two done in the same surgery not to have her have to go under again.

She did fantastic! No problems with anesthesia and seems to be healing well. She is not complaining of pain at all and running around like nothing ever happened.

We go for the follow-up in 2 weeks.
