I don't have a child who has had surgery but my daughter is 5 months with an upper lip hemangioma, we started her on the timolol topical gel at 3 months and switched to propranol at 4 months. We have not seen any further growth. I'm surprised your dermatologist didn't discuss that treatment with you and went right to surgery...most people have excellent results with propranol. Good luck with your decision.
