Abstract

A 14-year-old girl presented with the rapid growth of bilateral breasts within a year, causing her chest discomfort, and pressure sores in the inframammary fold. Bilateral reduction mammoplasty with free nipple-areola graft was performed. Nine kilograms of breast tissue, accounting for 15% of her total body weight, were excised.
