Clown-nosed girl, Connie Lloyd will finally not be bullied for the prominent red circle on her nose, courtesy the two-hour life-altering surgery.

A 4cm red bead had covered her tiny nose and doctors had diagnosed this to be a benign tumor.

This unique birth mark looked like a perfect clown's nose, and both parents and daughter were quiet tired of the extra attention from onlookers.

The blob on the nose continued to grow, until a skin specialist in the UK diagnosed her with haemangioma. She was treated with Propranolol, used to treat heart conditions and this arrested further growth of the blemish.

Following the surgery, the blemish has been completely removed, only leaving a small scar. The little girl can finally join school and look forward to normal school life.
