Stephen Daane, MD, is a pediatric plastic surgeon specializing in reconstructive surgery such as facial reconstruction, ear pinning, rhinoplasty (nose), head and neck surgery, and adolescent gynecomastia (excessive development of the breast in boys) and breast reduction for girls due to childhood obesity.
Many obese teenagers requiring reconstructive breast surgery suffer from back pain, emotional stress and low self-esteem. They feel ashamed and avoid physical activity and exercise, worsening their weight problems. Many refuse to wear gym clothes or take part in physical education classes or swimming. Such surgery is often the first step in helping these youth regain confidence and return to a physically active life.
1. Our plastic surgery department sees more than 100 dog bites a year. Our surgeons have found that the family dog will often bite adults on the hand and wrists, but will usually attack children in the head and neck.

2. As many as 40 percent of 14-year-old boys have adolescent gynecomastia.
The main treatment for prominent ears is an operation called pinnaplasty or otoplasty. It reshapes the cartilage (gristly tissue) in the ear and uses plastic stitches to pin the ears back (or sometimes just by using the stitches alone). The procedure may also be known as “ear pinning”.
Adolescent gynecomastia is a common condition which results in excessive development of the breast in boys during puberty. It may affect up to 40% of adolescent boys, usually by the age of 14. Medication or surgery may be required to treat this condition.
