Many children are born with birthmarks or have a birthmark appear within a few weeks after birth. One of the most common types are hemangiomas, or strawberry birthmarks. While these birthmarks generally fade over time, they can potentially be harmful if they are located in the wrong areas. At LM Medical NYC, we offer hemangioma treatment and removal at our medical facility in Manhattan.

Hemangiomas are a cluster of blood vessels that create a reddish or purple patch on an infant’s skin. These birthmarks are most commonly located on the head, neck and face. Hemangiomas can range from small strawberry marks or “kisses” to larger, more disfiguring patches. In many cases, the birthmark will fade and not cause any problems for the child, but it is important to have a diagnosis by a specialist.

Hemangiomas should be diagnosed and monitored to ensure they do not pose a risk to the infant’s health or permanent appearance. It is possible for a hemangioma to impact vision if they grow near the eyes. They can also impact breathing function when located on the neck near the windpipe.

Hemangioma Removal

If a hemangioma is believed to put a child’s health at risk or may cause a deformity, hemangioma treatment or removal may be considered. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in treating hemangiomas and vascular birthmarks. Dr. Lesley can evaluate hemangiomas and determine the best hemangioma treatment or removal option to reduce health risks and facial deformity for the child.

If you have a child that was born with a hemangioma, or strawberry birthmark, and you want a specialist diagnosis and treatment evaluation, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Lesley at our state-of-the-art clinic in Greenwich Village.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
