 Govt's Free Boob Job Finds Stressed Underage Taker - Taxpayer's Object to Use Of Funds
Unable to cope with the pressures of being 'small-breasted', a Brit girl all of 17 years decided to go in for a boob job - the 4,000-pound procedure at the expense of the National Health Service.

Amanda Ryan was jealous of her school pals' bigger busts and she was just 16 when she decided to go under the knife, even though her body was not fully developed.

Girls under 18 are usually not allowed to have the operation, but after looking at how the stress of being flat-chested was making Amanda grumpy, a counsellor at her health centre suggested her to get boob job done.

However, now she wishes it had never been done as she has been plagued by problems ever since.

"It is worryingly easy to get a free boob job at an age when you might not be ready for it," News of the World quoted her as saying.

"If I could advise anyone, I would tell them to wait until they are at least 18. You aren't ready for it at such a young age," she added.

Campaign group TaxPayers' Alliance hit out at the decision.

Spokeswoman Susie Squire said: "The NHS is struggling to provide basic and life-saving surgery.

"Cancer drugs should always come above boob jobs. Some serious questions need to be asked about the spending priorities of this NHS trust."
