No Scar at all. I can barely see anything. It was an outpatient procedure. The actual procedure only took about 15-20 minutes. The prep time (waiting room, forms, checking in, Chainging clothes, meeting with anesthesiologist, vitals) etc about 2 hours before. After the procedure, 1 1/2 hours. They forceblly woke his come gave some crackers and drink and released him. But he was dizzy for few hours we had to hold his hand for walking, going up the stairs, bathrooms. Slept and watched TV rest of the day. Procedure wise it goes smoothly, specially if the child is cooperative.View Thread
Well, My son's cyst was growing too. My pediatrician told us to go to see a plastic surgeon and the one she recommended specialized in children. We went for an outpatient surgery and got it removed. The cyst was tested in the lab and the report said it was pilomatrixoma, a benign cyst. He said the chance of it growing back is 0. But some people have the tendency of such growth. I hope this helps and hope every thing goes Ok for you all. Let me know if you have any further questions.View Thread
A month ago my 8 yr boy had a small growth on his right eyebrow. which we thought was a pimple or a mole. But it is pea size now. No irritation or redness or puss. The pediatrician was not sure and recommended that we see a child plastic surgeon. Can someone advice please?View Thread
