Pyogenic granuloma on the lips
A pyogenic granuloma is a benign vascular growth very common in pregnant individuals. It can be safely removed by your dermatologist using laser or surgical means with hardly a mark if any.

Pyogenic granulomas are known to occur in pregnancy. Various treatment options exist: e.g. liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, electrocoagulation, and surgical excision.
unfortunately this is a common condition in pregnant women. First speak with a qualifed plastic surgeon and get an idea about options. I have used steroid injections very effectively in these cases. This is always done after a careful discussion with the OBGYN and patient in all cases. Direct surgical excision is also possible but often unnecessary.
