Haydn came to The McIndoe Centre as an Embarrassing Bodies – Live from the Clinic patient suffering from Gynaecomastia ("man boobs") after a large weight loss.

Haydn said, “During my school life I got up to nearly 19 stone in weight at a very young age, I took it upon myself to lose weight and I’m now around 12 stone, unfortunately this has caused me to have a lot of excess skin, and has left me with fully formed boobs. This completely destroyed my confidence and I found it hard going out and meeting new people, and even harder getting close to people physically as I was just too self-conscious and felt that my body was deformed. I didn’t’ even walk around my own house without being covered up!”

In June 2012 he had the surgery to remove his man boobs with Mr Dheansa and is a changed young man, brimming with confidence and looking forward to life.
