Teenage boy with B-cup breasts at 13 sells his car to pay for male breast reduction surgery
An issue that affects a large proportion of men in the UK is gynaecomastia, or ‘moobs’. Recently a teenage boy who was had been living with gynaecomastia chose to sell his car to finance male breast reduction surgery following years of insecurity and even bullying.
Charlie Edgeworth, 19, had the common medical condition which caused him to grow breasts when he was just 13.
Charlie was so unhappy by his B-cup chest that he has never had a girlfriend – and used to cover himself up in baggy jumpers, even during the hottest summer months.
Determind to reduce his chest, the teenager went on a strict diet. This caused his weight to plunge reaching a dangerous nine stone when he was still attending school – but this only proved to make his chest more prominent.
So Charlie finally decided to sell his car to fund the £2,000 breast reduction – and is hoping his new chest will help him find love.
Excessive development of male breasts is estimated to affect 40% of men and it appears that the proportion is rising.
