A survey has placed Lincoln in the top ten cities in UK with 45% men found to have "man boobs".
Nearly 2,138 men across the UK participated in a survey which was conducted by Sweatband.com, where they were asked if they have 'man boobs' or excessive amount of fat within their chest.
Around 50% of those surveyed admitted to having "man boobs", or "moobs". They also felt that it is to be blamed on a bad diets and lack of exercise.
Maz Darvish, CEO of Sweatband.com, said: "Although the majority of men with "moobs" admit they're a result of a lack of exercise and a poor diet, to then find that so many would prefer to have surgery to correct the issue is worrying. Cosmetic operations like 'moob surgery' and liposuction are potentially very short-term solutions to obesity, especially if the patient continues to eat unhealthily and exercise rarely. Whilst in some cases moobs are due to hormonal problems or medication, excessive fat build-up of any kind is usually a sign that a healthier lifestyle is in order."
