A teenage boy went under the knife to reduce his breast size after being bullied for years.

According to Daily Mail, Charlie Edgeworth, 19, of England, suffered from gynaecomastia, a hormone imbalance that caused the excess breast tissue.

Edgeworth said classmates would call him names and bully him because of his B cup-sized breasts, which he started developing at the age of 13.

The teen also said he was never able to get a girlfriend because he was so insecure about his chest size.  He told Daily Mail, “It’s hard to get close to somebody when you have this hang-up. It’s difficult to keep seeing someone when you’re constantly thinking, ‘I’ve got bigger boobs than you.'”

So, Edgeworth sold his car to get enough money to have surgery. He said he loves his new chest and hopes to now find love.
