A new vest has been launched which promises to give men a six-pack and banish dreaded “moobs”, but wearers have been disappointed with results.
The vest has reinforced elastane panels designed to decrease breast size and tummy and side panels to reduce love handles. But men are finding the vest is not living up to expectations. Chris Rose of Wood Green, in North London tried out the vest on his 40in chest and beer belly.
He said: “My moobs and tummy are slightly better, but it feels like a wetsuit and looks ridiculous on me.”
It seems men are desperately seeking something to boost their confidence in the body stakes- with male liposuction and breast surgery soaring in the past year.
Men looking to achieve that sculpted look can have a free consultation at The Hospital Group.
The Hospital Group, one of the country’s leading cosmetic surgery clinics saw a staggering 318 per cent increase in the number of ‘moob’ reduction procedures performed in 2008 compared to 2003.
Marrius Muller, a former gynaecomastia patient at The Hospital Group said: “Before surgery I used to hate seeing myself topless in the mirror. The surgery not only changed the way I felt about myself and body, but also how people perceive me.
“It gave me that added confidence which I lacked for so many years. Now, I can’t wait to get my top off on the beach.”
As well as the male breast reduction procedure, The Group also perform a number of other procedures helping men achieve that dream body, including gastric bands, abdominoplasty and liposuction.
Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost cosmetic surgery providers. The Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none.
