I first developed these unsightly breasts when I was a spotty, fat fifteen year old. The embarassment they caused me resulted in my making a vow never to take my shirt off in public again.
That was over thirty years ago and I’ve stuck to my vow. I would never take my shirt off, even on the hottest summer days, and I would never take a beach holiday, instead choosing to go skiing.
I’ve missed out on so much due to the excess flab that I appear to have on my chest. I’ve tried all sorts of diets and specialist exercise regimes but nothing has worked. But my life changed after a skiing accident in Val D’Isere.
Luckily for me it wasn’t a particularly serious accident. I’d torn a ligament in my right knee and this put paid to my skiing holiday. I was so glad that I had some good winter sports insurance as I needed to be brought home straight away.
It was while waiting at the hospital that I managed to have a chat with one of their consultants, an American. It turned out that he was really a plastic surgeon currently on secondment to the hospital where I was treated. He advised me that my condition is called Gynaecomastia and that around 50% or men are effected.
He recommended that I take a consultation with a specialist in the treatment of this condition when I returned to London, which is exactly what I did. Within a month I was scheduled for surgery.
It was a routine 2 hour operation during which excess glandular material was removed. I was required to stay in the private hospital, where treatment was carried out, overnight but was on my feet the following day, impatient to see the results of the plastic surgeons work.
The final difference is hard to believe. My man boobs are completely gone. My chest no longer looks embarassingly womanly. The results of the operation gave me a huge boost to my self confidence, so much so that I now have a hot new girlfriend and I’m planning an even hotter holiday in the sun.
I strongle recommend that, when travelling, you always make certain that you have some comprehensice travel insurance and if you have a pre-existing medical condition make certain that you get the right pre-existing medical insurance.
