Birth Mark Removal

Hi there! I wasn’t sure which category this would be under but I have a birth mark on the right side of my right calve. I’ve been so insecure about it my whole life and would just like it to be gone. It’s a lighter patch of skin, throughout the winter it’s faintly noticeable but in the summer with a tan, that’s when it is much more noticeable. Please get back to me and let me know your thoughts

Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery
Location: Niagara Falls, ON - Canada

Thank you for sharing your question. Depending on the characteristics and size, there are likely a number of options available to you including laser or surgical excision. See a specialist for an in-person consultation to see what the best option would be.

There are several things this could be and the treatment would vary depending on this and the size. When possible, make an appointment with an experienced plastic surgeon and discuss your options.
