Two-year-old Born with ‘Clown’s Nose’ Undergo Successful Surgery - PHOTOS

Two year old Born with Clown Nose Undergo Successful Surgery Photos PicturesBritish girl Connie Lloyd, 2, was diagnosed with haemangioma, a benign tumor that covered her nose. Her parents Zara Green and Tom Lloyd noticed the strange red mark on their daughter’s nose when she was only a day old. To remove the tumor and the red mark, the couple sought the help of Dr Iain Hutchison, a specialist in treating facial disfigurements, to do the operation.

The successful operation took place in March removing the benign tumor.

Green recalled, 'Before the operation, Connie was quite shy and when people made comments and pointed she would turn her head.

'Even just going to the doctors' surgery was awful for both of us. I would hide Connie in the car to avoid people making horrible comments.

The concerned mother added, 'We were constantly worried. The doctors said if she cut or grazed it, she could bleed to death. There were treatments to stop it getting bigger but nothing to get rid of it.'

'It was the longest few hours of my life when Connie was in the theater. When she came out of the operation she said her nose was like her mum's.

'Now she is doing really well, she has a big group of friends and we are so proud of her.'

I was born with the same kind of tumour in the same spot, right on my nose. I am 15 and it still doesn't look perfect, I still have the odd jerk making fun of me, but this girl is lucky and no matter what anybody says, she is beautiful :)
