London- 22-year-old Josie Cunningham recently got a breast operation that cost more than $7,000, and the entirety came out of taxpayers’ pockets. Why? Because she told her General Practitioner that being flat-chested was causing her emotional distress.
“My GP referred me for the operation because I wasn’t just flat-chested —I didn’t have any boobs whatsoever,” Cunningham said. “I could never go on holiday as I lived in terror of ever being seen in a bikini and could never set foot outside without a padded bra. The doctors said they’d never seen anything like it and believed me when I burst into tears and told them it was ruining my life.”
What was the doctor’s solution? Enhancing her breast size from a 32A to 36DD.
