Can this be reduced? (photo)

I had a tumor removed at age 10. I am now 59 and after many de-bulking surgeries I am left with this. It swells and hurts. I am going to see dr Milton Waner, in new york but I don't know if it can be fixed. I hate looking in the mirror. Thank you.

Venous malformation on the lip

There are ablative options and surgical options. An examination would be the first important step before surgery.

Large vascular malformation of the lower lip

You need to see a head and neck surgeon (ENT) who can work with a plastic surgeon to treat this condition and at the same time give you a good cosmetic outcome.
