Local Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons Appear On Embarrassing Bodies

July 2011

Mr Asit Khandwala and Mr Charles Nduka, both consultant plastic and cosmetic surgeons at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital, will be featuring on Channel 4’s flagship health programme, Embarrassing Bodies, on Monday 1 August. They will conduct combined brachioplasty (arm reduction) and gynaecomastia (male breast reduction) surgery on a young male suffering from excess skin problems, following extreme weight loss from diet and exercise.

As its name suggests, Embarrassing Bodies is a programme centred on helping patients with health issues that they find embarrassing or that they have found no help with treating previously.

Mr Glen Hutton, 43, met with Embarrassing Bodies resident GPs Dr Pixie and Dr Christian to discuss the excess skin issues he had been experiencing following losing 20 stone in weight through diet and exercise. Following the medical advice, Mr Hutton visited Mr Khandwala and Mr Nduka at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital in Horley, Surrey, where they performed the combined procedure.

“Mr Hutton was an exceptionally motivated patient, and a pleasure to work with. He has worked very hard with his own personal weight loss, and we were happy that a very good result was achieved with surgery. Many patients have problems with excess skin, and similar results can be achieved on patients who have achieved weight loss by other means.” Says Mr Khandwala.

Embarrassing Bodies has on average 3.5 million viewers per episode and its website is one of Channel 4’s top three online properties alongside Big Brother and Hollyoaks and has won a BAFTA for interactivity in 2009.

Mr Asit Khandwala, Mr Charles Nduka and Mr Glen Hutton will be featured on Embarrassing Bodies, Channel 4 at 9pm on Monday 1 August 2011.
