Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes has been contemplating having liposuction on his ‘man boobs’ for more than a year.
And the comedian came one step closer to the procedure this week, having a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon while live on the air.
In a segment for his Hughesy & Kate radio show on Friday, the 47-year old funnyman spoke with Dr. Daniel Lanzer about the insecurity he experiences over his chest.

Hughesy explained: ‘When I do put photos up on Instagram, depending on the angle and what I’m wearing, I do get man boob comments. And they are hurtful, I won’t deny it’.
The star also revealed that his seven-year-old daughter Sadie pointed out his ‘man boobs’ during a recently family holiday in Japan.
‘She said, “Dad, you’ve got boobs!” the comedian recalled.

Dr. Lanzer explained that he could eliminate Hughesy’s ‘man boobs’ via tumescent liposuction.
The ‘dermatological cosmetic surgeon’ claimed the procedure takes about an hour, is done when the patient is awake, and is extremely popular.
‘We sometimes do ten a day!’ Dr. Lanzer exclaimed.
Will he get the procedure done? Hughesy shed his shirt to get the doctor’s diagnosis on whether or not he needed the surgery
At that point, Hughesy shed his shirt to get the doctor’s diagnosis on whether or not he needed the surgery.
Dr. Lanzer stated: ‘Hughesy does not have severe gynecomastia [excess breast tissue], but it’s moderate… It’s [the procedure] going to change his life, it’s going to make him happier. DO IT!’
The surgeon also revealed he has a number of very happy clients who’ve already had the procedure done, including pyjama designer Peter Alexander.
Peter called into Hughesy & Kate’s program and gushed: ‘I went and got liposuction on my boobs and it was the best thing I’ve ever done!’
