Overweight British Boys Getting "Boob Jobs"

The first person who asks when I'm making my appointment is banned!

Obesity has been blamed for the growing problem of “boy-boobs” – cases of teenage boys with breasts so well developed that surgery is needed to reduce them.

Doctors at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool say that they are seeing dozens of teenagers every year with gynaecomastia, the condition in which males develop breasts.

Christian Duncan, a plastic surgeon specialising in obesity-related surgery, said that in the past 12 months he had performed at least 20 breast-reduction operations on young boys who had developed the condition. (H/T - TimesOnline)

Okay, we're all laughing, but this is a serious problem for the affected boys. Personally, I would try and steer kids away from surgery, especially since there is a safer alternative that does not require surgery . . . the manssiere.

Oh yeah. I'm going to Hell.
