Default Lip Hemangiama

Hi guys, just discovered this site and wanted to ask about something that has been bothering me for some time.

I've had a hemangioma on my lip my whole life. 4 years ago I had it surgically removed however it has come back but not to the extent that it was before. I'm confused because I thought this was something you would get as a kid and I don't understand why it would come back once it's been surgically removed. I guess I'm looking for some background information and I'm wondering if I'm going to have it surgically removed every 4 years?
