Default Purse string closure?

Hi. My 2 1/2 year old daughter has a hemangioma on her forehead, it is about the size of a 50 cent piece and raised. She will be having surgery shortly (in the next few months) to have it removed. Our surgeon left us with the option of a straight line closure (that would leave her with a long, about 2 1/2 inches, skinny scar) or a purse string closure (that would leave an almost circular scar, much smaller but would probably need a second procedure down the road). Does anyone have any experience with either option that could offer some advice for my husband and I as far as deciding which way to go? Thank you!
