My son had a large segmental hemangioma on his face. THough most of it was flat, there were areas that were thicker and his specialist believed he would need a face lift/remove excess skin. I really pushed for laser and my son did end up having multiple treatments... I really do believe the laser helped keep his skin firm. He will not need any surgerical correction. It is something I would recommend getting opinions about. Dr. Stuart Nelson would be a great resource for you to email and ask questions to regarding the benefit of doing laser in your daughter's case. If you can send him photos that would be helpful.
