Moob Tube

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.

Debra, 49, had a tummy tuck after four pregnancies left the skin on her stomach loose and drooping. Debra, who spoke to Pick Me Up magazine, said: “I rang The Hospital Group cosmetic surgery clinic and within two weeks, I was chatting to one of its surgeons in Southampton. Two months later I was being prepped for surgery. Bye bye flab, I thought to myself as I drifted under the anaesthetic.

Harley Medical Group Reveals That People Are Funding Their Cosmetic Surgery By Working A Second Job

Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, has found that a growing number of patients are funding their cosmetic surgery procedures by working a second job or putting in extra hours due to the current poor economic climate.

New findings from Harley Medical Group show that 22% of patients from its 23 UK clinics said that they had done overtime or taken on a second job to pay for surgery. This number is up from the 11% of people who had worked extra hours just 6 months previously. It was discovered that patients usually undertake extra work for 6-12 months to help fund their surgery, with bar and restaurant jobs, direct selling and market research proving to be popular choices for second jobs.

Director of Harley Medical Group, Liz Dale, said, “As well as taking on extra work to raise money, many of our patients are dipping into saving schemes and cutting down on holidays, socialising, shopping and home decoration to fund their plastic surgery. It’s not uncommon for patients to research and plan for their cosmetic surgery two to three years and for this reason, they’re unlikely to want to now put this off and instead they consider their procedure to be an investment. Surgery gives them improved confidence, enhancing their lifestyles financially and socially.”

The new research from Harley Medical Group also found that the most popular surgical procedure among women currently is breast augmentation with liposuction not far behind. Cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction and rhinoplasty have also proved popular with men.

Cosmetic surgery is booming in the UK despite the credit crunch, with enquiries at The Harley Medical Group up 35% year on year.
