    That's odd, I knew someone who got their ears pinned back when they were 13...

    whats the issue? having them done again or that your an adult? I know someone thats had it done as an adult. I'm sure if it affected you that your GP would be willing to help.

    how odd!!!! another story of a 13 yeard old!!! answers.yahoo.com/que…ZhM :?

    If you don't ask you don't get just don't do it towards the end of the finatial year or your PCT will probably turn down funding. Good luck

    grow your hair.. cheaper that way :thumbsup:

    I would say yes to your question ... if you were to make your GP aware that the issue is causing you stress I'm sure he/she would recommend some kind of help for you.

    I would also do it sooner rather than later as im sure they are looking into stopping cosmetic surgery soon, dont know if they will but sure there has been in talk of it in the last year

    Could I get a tummy tuck on the NHS?

    It would have to be more of a fold than a tuck........

    Hey Strobez.. don't worry.. people will love you for who you are, not how you look..

    he said "When i was 13"

    I used to work for the department in the Primary Care Trust which processed applications for cosmetic surgery for the NHS. Just speak to your GP and they will write a letter and sort it all out for you. The majority of applications we received were for women wanting breast reductions but I remember a few that were to have their ears pinned back. I cannot remember 1 refusal for such an operation, especially as it is follow up surgery. It doesn't make any difference what part of the financial year we are in. There are no specific targets stating the PCT can only fund x amount of operations per year. There is also no danger that such surgery will be ceased on the NHS! Guaranteed!

    So how come some areas have stopped doing varicose vein operations on the NHS?
    Or at least, only in special circumstances. eg. Berkshire.

    The operations have not been ceased, only the criteria in which an applicant needs to cover has become stricter in that circumstance.

    Yes speak to your Doctor but remember it's not your Doctor who decides whether you can have the operation or not. They will sort out your application for you though, so you don't need to do anything after that. Just emphasise your emotional distress.

    Yes, but they, Berkshire, will not operate to remove varicose veins for cosmetic reasons, only medical.

    Hey how about brest reduction for man-boobs.. is that ever requested, and sanctioned?

    As I said, it depends on the criteria. Varicose is similar to breast reductions in the sense that the procedure is granted because of physical problems such as back pain rather than appearances. Gynocomastia is definately requested a lot but is not always granted because generally the applicants body fat ratio is too high.
    You would be surprised at the amount of successful applications for sex change operations though!

    Thanks Donny.. Looks like a diet for me then..LOL
    Sex change just a little too radical for me......Thanks..LOL

    My OH was mugged when he was a teenager, and his nose healed very wonky with a big lump at the bridge.

    He went to the doctor who then referred him to the consultant. The emphasis was placed on emotional distress, and the fact that the consultant would only return him to "normal" - no choice of how his nose would look necessarily, just that he would remove the lump.

    He had it done and it looks great now - and all free on the NHS

    Van Gogh??
