Aspiring Model Scores State-Funded Boob Job After Convincing Doctor Her Flat Chest Was Causing Her 'Emotional Distress'

A mother of two from Leeds who idolizes Katie Price and aspires to be a glamour model has received a fully-funded breast enhancement courtesy of the British taxpayer.

Josie Cunningham recently revealed how she was able to use National Health Service money to pay for her boob job after persuading a physician that her flat chest was causing her emotional distress.

Aspiring Model Scores State-Funded Boob Job After Convincing Doctor Her Flat Chest Was Causing Her 'Emotional Distress'

"I just got emotional when I was explaining to my GP that I felt I couldn't live a full life the way I was," Cunningham told The Sun, "and he agreed to refer me for implant surgery."

The 22-year-old telemarketer insists that she wasn't merely flat-chested — she "didn't have any boobs whatsoever."

"I could never go on holiday as I lived in terror of ever being seen in a bikini and could never set foot outside without a padded bra," she said. "The doctors said they'd never seen anything like it and believed me when I burst into tears and told them it was ruining my life."

Cunningham told the tabloid that her plastic surgeon claimed she was his first patient with "zero percent breast tissue.

"He said he'd have to give me 36DD implants costing £4,795 [$7260] just to achieve the appearance of a 36C - because there was literally nothing there in the first place," Cunningham said.

Now, fully healed and with a new tan in tow, Cunningham says it's time to give back to the taxpayer who gave her the courage to go out and take it all off for money.

Leaving her five- and two-year-old boys at home with her parents, Cunningham plans to take London's nightclubs by storm.

"I've even started to collect Louis Vuitton handbags and have ordered a chihuahua puppy," she said. "The sky's the limit now I've got my new boobs."

Unsurprisingly, not everyone is looking forward to seeing Cunningham realize her Page 3 dreams at the taxpayer's expense.

"The NHS is there for people with serious medical needs, not as a means of helping wannabes who fancy a career in modelling," said TaxPayers' Alliance chief executive Matthew Sinclair. "NHS bosses must not allow the system to be manipulated by people wanting cosmetic surgery merely to enhance their career prospects."
