Birth marks on face

Hi,

I am a student and I live in Victoria, Canada.

I have a dark brown spot on my right cheek, this dark brown spot covers my almost half face.

I want your recommendation about the best treatment way (cosmetic/plastic/laser surgery) which i should opt for removal of this spot from my face?

And my next questions are:

What is the cost of this surgery?

What is the healing time of this surgery?
