Vascular Birthmarks Before and after pictures in Latham, NY, Patient 28973
This was a 4 ½ year old who had a Hemangioma at birth that was on her right arm. This grew rapidly and ulcerated and she was at a point where she was starting to become ridiculed on the playground. The parents were looking for an opinion. A debulking resection procedure was performed with a multiple z-plasty repair. Here she can be seen in the post-operative photograph ready for laser therapy. The laser therapy will lighten up that areas of redness and flatten out the Hemangioma. As one can see, this was certainly a problem for her being very self-conscious and these are the type of Hemangiomas have been for many years somewhat neglected with the family being told “this will go away.” Fortunately with a relatively small procedure this can be addressed by a well-trained contemporary surgeon.
