Birthmarks are common. Few have medical risks, or threats of turning cancerous. But prominent birthmarks, especially on the face, may elicit strong reactions from their owners, as well as those around them. Some individuals may have made peace with their birthmark and embrace it as part of their identity. Some may feel that it affects their self-confidence and how others treat them.
The key in the treatment of birthmarks is to make an accurate diagnosis of the birthmarks so that the most effective treatment can be implemented. Our plastic surgeons are highly trained and have extensive experience in assessing and treating birthmarks in both children and adults.
