"Many of the 'man tuckers' are businessmen who have been on a health kick but following weight loss find themselves with loose, overhanging skin on their stomachs," the Daily Express quoted Liz Dale, director of The Harley Medical Group, as saying.

She added: "Competition in the workplace sees many men fighting to be fit but losing the weight around the midriff can throw up as many problems as it solves."

Alan Bradley, who did a tummy tuck and male breast reduction at The Harley Medical Group said: "It was demoralising to have lost so much weight just to be left with huge flaps of skin that made me feel as unattractive as before.

"The surgery means I'm now more mobile and healthier and it has made it easy for me to keep the weight off."

Also, male cosmetic surgery in general has risen by 21 per cent in just a year.
