Birthmark Pic


So, here is a picture of my birthmark. It was about 2" in diameter. I had looked into having it removed years ago, but they were going to insert a "balloon" to stretch the skin then cut it out and sew the skin back together. Well with my weightloss I had an abundence of extra skin in that area, therefore eliminating the stretching process. I hadn't thought about it in years, but when I went in for my consult on my arms he saw the birthmark and mentioned removing it. Plus the insurance covered all but my deductible. Anyways, here is what it looked like. Once the wound heals more I'll post the after surgery picture.

Hey girl! Nice to know that the excess skin did have SOME use! Glad to see you're back to lower case letters. Hope you're feeling better too.
