    I know its an old topic and all....
    but really like, there is a massive shortage in NHS depression support.... people wait for months and months too see therapists/psychiatrists etc. (though does depend on location, the type of case etc)
    If its either 12 months of therapy or a boob job.... i'd say give them the boob job, probably cheaper in the longer run than the therapy.

    I am 23 yrs old I have had this problem since I started developing. My breasts are different shaped and one is like a A cup n the other is a D cup it is very embarrassing and depressing. It makes you very self consious and makes you feel like you stick out like a sore thumb in a crowd. My Fiance understands how I feel but he says Im beautiful even with that problem but I just dont think so. I really hate it, it annoys me when people **** other people off saying that its taxpayers money well I have worked ever since I was 14 I would never **** someone down for a problem like that and how can a person thats on such a low income afford £3,000 - £4,000 to be happy and normal like most girls. Probably the ones that **** others off are perfect but they want them bigger. So I would like to say have consideration for people like me.

    If it's making you unhappy, you will be a prime candidate for surgery on the NHS. The surgery is available on the NHS for people in your situation, i tihnk things are getting out of hand when it is offered to people who 'just feel like they want bigger boobs'. I was in your situation when i was in my early twenties and went to see my Dr who helped lots and referred me to a consultant who i met, he then put me on a waiting list for about six months, then i went back for another consultation and a week or two later was in for surgery (I opted for a reduction of the larger breast).

    One thing to be aware of is that having this condition gives you a higher risk of breast cancer (I'm not sure why) so make sure you check yourself on a regular basis. About three years after my surgery i noticed a lump, went to my GP uni who referred me to a specialist unit at the hospital, the consultant there didn't think it was worth worrying about but a few weeks later the lump had doubled in size, i went to see my GP back home who referred me to another consultant who saw me on a Wednesday, the following Monday he had me in for surgery. Luckily it wasn't cancerous but i do have to be extra vigilant

    If having smaller boobs is enough to make a person depressed and in need of psychiatric training, making them bigger is not going to fix them. They will remain crazy.

    Considering this has been bumped I might aswell have my two cents!

    I totally understand funding breast surgery for those who have had a mastectomy or who have breasts which have developed unequally, to me both are worthwhile ways to spend NHS money, along with breast reductions because in turn huge breasts can cause a great deal of pain but a breast enlargement because you're depressed, get real!

    I suffer with anorexia, I have no breasts, never have done because throughout puberty I was too busy starving myself. I would like a breast enlargement but would I want the NHS to pay for it, heck no. I couldn't even get therapy on the NHS for the anorexia because the waiting list is over a year long. That is something I personally pay for. I also have Crohn's disease, but can I get NHS funding for the medication that will drastically improve my quality of life. No I cannot, instead I must go through a bespoke care panel and justify why said medication is so important. It's ridiculous. There needs to be some serious discussions on how the NHS prioritises these things because from what I can see it's warped. I'm not saying I'm the most important person out there but surely controlling an uncurable, chronic condition of any sort is better in the long run for expenses than shelling out for surgery which really I think is unnecessary. You have small boobs, so what, save your money and pay your own way!

    I hate my nose and it pisses me off...can I have a free nose job?
    My nose got broken several times and needed to be reset, I got a cosmetic one thrown in with the nosejob

    I think the procedure was called a Sceptorhinorplasty or somin like that.

    Just get your GP to refer you and it takes about 1year to get it actually done, about 2 weeks healing time and I can breathe better now :thumbsup: but I still need another one cos my breathings still impaired... but yeah get referred and you'll get one

    I know a girl who has had two nose jobs on the NHS because of the "psychological problems" caused by how much she hated her nose. They didn't do it quite right the first time so she got another one. This whole thing is absolutely ridiculous, if your issues with your nose/boobs cause depression they should treat the depression first before dishing out free boob jobs when people with genuine physical problems, who are in pain, can't get treatment or drugs that they need. I know it can cause psychological problems but it makes me so angry to hear about people like this when I know a lot of people waiting to be funded for operations etc and then people who get new tits get prioritised. Ridiculous.
