Default 3 month old with H on scalp

Hi everyone,
I am new to the site, and was very happy to find it- what a great resource it is!!
My daughter is 3 months old, and has a hemangioma on her scalp/forehead, it's under her hairline, but she hardly has any hair so it's very noticeable. Like hemangiomas go, it started off as a pink mark and has grown rapidly. After 3 consults with plastic surgeons, we have decided to get it surgically removed for various reasons and feel it's best for her to take this route. Her surgery is scheduled for Jan.29 when she'll be a little over 4 months old.
I am going to try and post pictures below...
I am a bit worried about the scarring, but I am hoping that her hair will eventually cover it up. Anyone have experience with a hemangioma removed from this area? Or have an infant this young go under general anesthesia? What should I expect after the surgery?
I would love to hear your experiences

mom to Brendan (7 years old)
and Kayleigh (born 9/8/07)
