What Are British Men having Nipped + Tucked the Most? Their Man Boobs

The most popular plastic surgery procedure for male Brits for the second straight year? Moob-removal.

Nope, this has nothing to do with FTM gender reassignment surgery, but with extra and unwanted fat hanging off these blokes’ chests. “The number of such operations rose from 323 in 2008 to 581 last year – an 80% increase – the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said,” relays the BBC. “Pressure created by men’s magazines was partly to blame, one surgeon said. Cosmetic surgery appears to be defying the recession, with an overall increase in the number of procedures.” (Nose jobs, and surgery around the eyes rounded out the Top 3 most popular male procedures. Breast enlargement remains the most popular for women.)

It’s a procedure that can, evidently, be performed with just a laser and a vacuum tube (to suck out the fat). Or in some cases, prevented entirely by not using steroids. Juiceheads.
