Vascular Birthmark Removal

As many as one in ten children are born with some type of vascular birthmark. Most are benign and many of hemangioma types of congenital birthmarks fade away in the early years of a child’s life. However, there are many other vascular birthmarks and malformations that do not fade but can grow larger as the child grows. When these birthmarks are disfiguring or posing a risk to the health of the child, removal can be the best option.

Dr. Joseph Rousso is one of the top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in NYC and has offered his skills to help children from all over the world with birth defects. As a double board certified surgeon with a unique background in specialized reconstructive surgery, Dr. Rousso is an excellent choice for any family looking for a qualified plastic surgeon for vascular birthmark removal for their child. He will also help adults that are considering having a congenital birthmark removed.

Treatment Options for Birthmarks

Vascular birthmarks and malformations come in many shapes, sizes and types. The treatment options can vary, depending on the type and location of the birthmark. Port wine stains, a common birthmark, are often faded through laser treatments, while other types of birthmarks or malformation may require surgery removal. The complexity of these congenital skin and tissue tumors or birthmarks require a personalized approach for treatment. Dr. Rousso can explore the different options for treatment that can minimize the appearance and deformity of a vascular birthmark with the parents of the child.
