Gastric band mum now wants boob job on NHS
A woman who had £23,000 of weight-loss surgery on the NHS now wants a boob job funded by the taxpayer.
Beckie Lawton – who weighed 30 stone at her heaviest – had a £9,000 NHS gastric band op in 2012.
The mum of two, 44, shed 18 stone and then last month had tummy tuck surgery costing £14,000.
Now she is applying to the NHS for an operation to reshape her breasts as they have sagged since her dramatic weight loss. It would cost around £4,000 to have at a private hospital.
The supermarket warehouse worker, of Rugby, Warks, said: “I’ve lost the weight I wanted, but I need procedures to deal with the way my body has changed.
“I have worked since I was 15, paying tax and national insurance, so I have the right to have these operations.”
