    I always considered the NHS to be pretty good considering in the USA without health insurance you are stuffed.

    Anyway I was looking at Laser Eye Surgery or Implantable contact lenses for my eye sight as its pretty bad.

    Sadly it seems the NHS don't consider this essential .. fair enough...

    I was also checking out surgery on NHS for my mother who has very bad problems with her veins in her legs.. Sadly after a visit to doctor apparently not essential.. Which I don't understand as she is in pain...

    Last week I spoke to a friend who mentioned her mother was getting a surgery for boobs I thought she was taking the piss..

    Today at work collogues mate has had a breast increase becauese they are too 'small' and have been increase to DD..

    Is this a sick joke?

    Please someone explain...

    If the surgery will drastically improve the patient's quality of life, then surgery can be performed. Maybe there was a severe psychological problem the woman had with her small boobs?

    After breast cancer, probably. Just for having a fake rack, no.

    My girlfriend's friend had a boob job because she was suffering depression due to insecurities about being flat chested.

    I know someone who has had a boob job on the NHS as one was larger than the other. I'm sure she had 2 implants in though so they were even :confused:

    Psychological effects of a negative body image can be devastating to your health which is why they often fund augmentations to patients with uneven breasts or women who struggle to cope with accepting their body. Breast reconstructions are always offered to mastectomy patients.

    I don't wanna judge her or the situation, but I honestly don't believe having small boobs can cause depression they should have treated it with decent therapy or even meds.

    Just to clarify, it was on the NHS, right?

    I can understand that people's mental health can be affected by something about their body, but like you said there are more serious illnesses than being unhappy with breast size.

    Well I don't know the girl. But that was the story that i've heard. And it would be very out of character for my girlfriend to lie.

    It was very much so on the NHS. Also, I think it was more a case of no boobs rather than small boobs

    Surely ALL people with mental health issues deserve to be treated with the same level of importance? You can't say one person's mental illness is more deserving of treatment than anothers'. That's extremely judgmental and the whole point of the medical profession is to be completely unbiased.
