Mr Graham Offer, Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Spire Leicester Hospital, will be featuring on September 19’s episode of Channel 4’s flagship health programme, Embarrassing Bodies, where he will conduct corrective surgery on a patient with a double nipple.
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.
The 27 year-old patient from Leicester met Embarrassing Bodies resident GP, Dr Pixie to discuss the embarrassing problem of having two nipples on one breast. Following Dr Pixie’s advice, she went to see Mr Offer, a specialist in cosmetic breast surgery at Spire Leicester Hospital in Oadby, Leicester, where he performed a procedure to fuse the two nipples into one.
“It was a pleasure to be able to help. Sometimes just a simple procedure can make such a difference” says Mr Offer.
Embarrassing Bodies airs on Channel 4 at 9pm on Monday September 19 2011.
