The 8 part series produced by Shine Australia features Dr Christian Jessen plus Australian GPs Dr Ginni Mansberg, Dr Sam Hay and Dr Brad McKay.
From inverted nipples and ‘bingo wings’ to testicular cysts and anal warts, these are just some of the issues faced by the everyday Australians featured on Embarrassing Bodies Down Under, a new local production premiering Tuesday October 29 at 9.30pm AEDT on LifeStyle YOU.
Following the same core principal “there’s no shame, we’re all the same”, the local incarnation of this daring and provocative health series will feature the charismatic Dr Christian Jessen from the UK version, alongside three straight-talking Aussie GPs – Dr Ginni Mansberg, Dr Sam Hay and Dr Brad McKay.
Together, these doctors will tackle the obscure medical conditions of the Australian public in an attempt to dispel myths surrounding these sensitive issues, while also spreading important health messages.
Embarrassing Bodies Down Under will showcase an array of highly embarrassed patients, young and old, who suffer from visually shocking and personally mortifying conditions, and are all desperate for some much needed medical attention.
In episode one, on Tuesday October 29 at 9.30pm AEDT, viewers will meet a man suffering from pilonidal sinus or “two bum holes”; a young woman with an abnormally high-pitched voice; an older woman with excessive skin flaking; and a man whose quest to be hair free has left him with multiple sebaceous cysts on his scrotum.
The series will give an intimate insight into not only the patient’s treatment, but also their attempts to cope with the emotional and psychological impact of their illnesses.
