Low flow venous malformations

Excision is the standard treatment for the management of low flow venous malformations. Do a Google search and a search on Medline to find a facial reconstructive surgeon who manages these regularly.

Thank you for your question.

The gold standard for treatment of low flow venous malformations is surgical excision and reconstructive plastic surgery.

To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.

I hope this helps.

No sclero. Check out "hemangioma" with extension by Barry M. Zide, D.M.D., M.D. He is the best in the field. There are photos, related papers and contact info. I would get his opinion. Good luck. (No sclerotherapy)
