hi all, i haven't got any kids like the rest of you lol, but i just stumbled upon this website while googling, im 21 and i have a 'birthmark' on the left side of my face which also is on my left upper lip,which makes it swollen. to be quite honest im not really sure what type it is, or anything like that. but i do know that when i was younger i had laser treatment up until the age of around 7-8. when i was younger my birthmark was a lot darker and larger on my face, and the treatment shrunk it n lightened it. After the course of treatment i had, nothing was done about it, up until about a year when i went to have a tooth extraction and coz the birthmark is inside my mouth i got referred to a vascular specialist to make sure it was safe. the specialist talked to me about camouflage make-up for the colour of it and also plastic surgery for my lip, i wasn't bothered about the camouflage make up as im not too fussed anymore and i don't notice it to be quite honest, however i am going for the plastic surgery, it will be a staged reduction, as to ensure the surgeons do not remove any muscle they will do it gradually. Any1 else heard/had anything like this.........? Ive looked at some of the photos people have uploaded and can't see anything that looks like mine lol, one of a kind.
Ive tried 2 upload a pic, but not sure how lol, if any1 could help me on that aswell lol
