When I was about 12 years old, I first thought about having the birthmark on my face removed. But at that age, you don’t know who to turn to and asking my parents was something I didn’t dare do.
Years later, I had a conversation with my dermatologist, who suggested that I visit a plastic surgeon. Because the birthmark on my face could not be treated so well with a laser, a small surgical procedure would be necessary and this would surely give an unsightly scar if not treated by an expert.
But as a 20 year old young woman, going to a plastic surgeon was out of the question for me. So I continued to live with my birthmark.
But today, at 33 years old, I finally took the plunge and with the support of Dr. Bartsch of theaesthetics, I finally got rid of my birthmark.
I had my initial consultation with Dr. Katrin Bartsch, who gave me comprehensive advice. I was advised against laser treatment this time as well, since no histological findings would be possible and the birthmark could fray and grow back. The histological report is important in order to examine the birthmark in a laboratory and to make sure that it is not a malignant skin tumor. You will then receive the results from your doctor.
How I experienced the mini-surgery, whether I ever regretted the operation and many before/after pictures can be seen on my blog www.vickyliebtdich.at.
