This is Stefan Zoleik from Slovakia, and that
large mass under his chin is in fact a tumour. The growth has bee developing for more than
ten years and made Stefan’s life extremely difficult in many ways. Everyone was turning a looking at me. It was very unpleasant. It also bothered me all the time when I moved my head. The tumour was caused by Madelung disease,
which is a rare illness that causes uncontrolable fat fibres to grow. Stefan made the life-changing decision to
have the tumour removed. Although Stefan’s daughter Katka is supportive
of his decision to go under the knife, that doesn’t stop her from being nervous about
her dad’s operation. She said the most important thing is for the
surgery to be successful. The life-changing surgery too five hours and
a total of six kilograms of fat were removed from Stefan’s face. Stefan said he was delighted with the result
and the look of his new face. This amazing. Much better than it was before.
It was horrible. I don’t even feel pain now. Stefan said he’s now ready to start his new
and finally tumour free life.
