We’ve got yet another glowing patient review to share with you all today, and this one comes from the mysterious Mr. Y, from London, who underwent a gynecomasty with us – also known as a male breast reduction procedure. We can add that our enigmatic Mr. Y was of Asian origin, and decided to travel out so see us during Euro 2012 football cup!
So, what made you look around for surgery? “I got tired of having man-boobs and wanted out of the club. I looked at alternatives as surgery really didn’t seem like the most attractive solution. From pills to, well, other pills – nothing seemed like a decent permanent solution. Thus, my search for a surgical option came under way. I looked at the sites online that offer to call you back once you register, and the average price was around £4000 – which was far more than I could afford, so that was that.”
“Somehow, in the middle of all this, I ended up getting in touch with Angela at Secret Surgery – or rather, she got in touch with me. She offered half the price and, such was, by default, in the lead for my custom. Frankly, the feeling of just getting it over and done with overtook my reservations about going for cosmetic surgery abroad.”
And what was it like? “The thing is, though, the hospital I ended up in was better than any I have seen in Harley Street – no, really! – and the staff were all absolute gems. The doc was very knowledgeable – the dude had a Phd. – and friendly. My local guide, Aga, was also the perfect guide! As for Eastern Europe… well, I loved it! It was clean and more friendly than France, and I certainly hope to go back someday.”
“After surgery, I have never felt the need to use any pain killers as the pain never got above ‘annoying’.” Well, good! We’re always pleased to hear that we have happy patients – and lucky for us, we hear it a lot!
Never mind Moves Like Jagger – we wish – more of us ladies have to put up with men that have got moobs like Jabba! Moobs, or man boobs, as you might also call them, can result in men for two reasons, though both of which are correctable with cosmetic surgery. I’m sure I speak for more than just myself when I say that moobs are not the most attractive
The first is medical; a condition called clinical gynecomastia, also known as male breast enlargement, can be caused by a hormonal imbalance of elevated levels of oestrogen or lowered levels of testosterone. While this condition can go away of it’s own accord, it can also hang around, and in these cases it’s certainly worth seeing a doctor to find out about the possibilities of medication or surgery.
Of course, not all men have that excuse. Most moobs probably come about simply because the chest area, like everywhere else on our bodies, is somewhere that excess fat can be stored. I know enough from my own body that when you pile on the pounds, they end up everywhere you least want them. Women aren’t the only victims of this!
Now, you could go out and buy yourself a manissiere, but let’s face it: that’s hardly going to make you feel any more masculine, is it? One way to really eradicate those moobs is to opt for liposuction, which can remove the fat from the pockets on the chest, thus bringing your man boobs down to a more manly size.
Male breast reduction is becoming more and more popular in the UK, as men stop seeing cosmetic surgery as a vanity, and more as something that they sometimes might just need to do for themselves. All jokes aside, ‘moobs’ can make a man feel very feminine, and it’s obviously not great for confidence or self-esteem.
But, don’t fret. It’s pretty easy to turn yourself from Jabba the Hutt into Han Solo, with a little nip here, and a tuck there… At Secret Surgery, we can arrange the scans to determine whether you need a gynacomasty or liposuction, and the surgery, flights and accommodation will all be sorted out by us.
