Tax for Tits - Taxing comestic surgery.

Well, it seems that that TAX man has decided it's time to tax those who what a new pair of breasts, grastic band or a new neat Varjaja!

If they can tax santitary products why not?  I 'don't see why people shouldn't pay tax on non-medical procedures.  It is a fast growing industry with lots of people doing it. Too many plastic sugeons are driving around in Rolls Royces and Bentleys. So it adds on a 20% to the your bill but can you really put a price on happiness and self esteem?

For all those who say it will drive the trade aboard well a lot of people already go there.When these people mean aboard they mean some back water clinic. More than often it's okay - it's for those with pre-existing medicaltion conditions or who may need a little more expertise. To be fair the reputable clinics aboard will be probably the same price all over the world. Also plastic surgery isn't extactly heart or brain surgery. In most cases int's making an incisison in the skin and adding something. Or maybe just pumping out some fat. At some point thought I think it's changed anyone could be a plastic surgeonry. It wasn't recognised as a specialty in medicine. I mean common a lot of people do thieir down botox in surgery. If given the lipo-suction equpiment I think they do that too.

Going aboard does increase risks. I mean lots of Americans go to dodgy Mexican Surgeries to get it on the cheap. The also fly out the Brazil if they get rejected by those in the states. If you want to get major surgery on the cheap from some dodgy clinic aboard who is more likely to mess you up for good just to save 20% on what could be a life thing then do it's your call. It's all about choice.


People are arguing that lots of people will go aboard, have botched jobs and then come back and have it done on the NHS again. Well, what they forget there is a risk factor there. It's not that easy to come out with blind statements. Most feel insecure about their bodies because it's in comparsion with something else be it an airbrushed picture in a magazine or some hot chick or bloke on the street.

You can not insure against foolery. If you are going to have surgery research it properly - don't blindly trust in the white coat and clinical atmosphere. Don't trust blindly because the person is a doctor. So whether aboard or in the UK do your research - it is your body and ultimately your life!
