I want to become a Ken Doll and the NHS should pay for it!!

Obviously, I don't want to become a ken doll. Was just scrolling through my news feed and an article from Huffington Post UK popped up. Apparently a Brazillian born gentleman claims the NHS should pay for his reconstructive surgery after a previous surgery went wrong. The article didn't actually say whether the first surgery was performed in the UK or not, but the man claims that since he has a British Passport and pays British taxes, he is entitled to a new nose a la NHS. Me? Nope, don't think so. He wants to destroy his body? He should do it on his dime. He did say that all previous surgeries were from his own money, but because he's having to get his no redone again, the NHS should pay. I don't know, I mean, I don't care if it was the fault of a British Plastic Surgeon, the surgeon didn't hold a gun the guys head and say "You need to have this surgery." What say everyone here?
A plastic surgery addict who has spent over £300,000 to look like a Ken doll claims he is to get a new £50,000 nose on the NHS after his body rejected hi...

People that get surgery they don't need deserve whatever happens to them.

Though I guess if no one ever wanted botox or a nose job, plastic surgeons would be bored most of time. Sure, they reconstruct facial features for crash victims, etc, but all those other un-necessary "hollywood" surgeries they do... Why people get these? I'll never understand.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Having three nose jobs is a bit ridiculous, and then complaining when your nose starts falling apart? Maybe it's an Act of God...

@JolietJake I don't know about all that, but it's definitely some sort of sign.. like stop having nose jobs! or any major non-needed surgery!

I feel very much for this young man, he obviously has a lot of issues and we all know that having plastic surgery is not going to resolve those issues. You are correct he has landed himself in this situation through the choices he has made. Up to this point he has paid for all his plastic surgery. Now however he has physical problems from a surgery that went wrong that has led to breathing problems that need attention. It is not like he is getting plastic surgery for vanity reasons but now it is for health reasons and I think he should not be left in this distressing state.

Not sure I agree. All people undergoing surgery know there are risks involved...if he chose to ignore those risks, why should the Government be held responsible?

I have to say that the way JJ worded it was perfect. He CHOSE to get the surgery(ies) to begin with. His original surgery WAS for vanity reasons, even if this new one is for quality of life.

Sadly there are unscrupulous surgeons making millions out of gullible people willing to spend their dosh on unnecessary surgery. It really angers me when they expect the NHS to pick up the tab when their surgery goes wrong which happens more often that people realise. So we deny patients cancer treatments to pay for vanity led treatments. This guy has not got a life depending illness. He created this mess then he should cough up bite the bullet and pay for his own corrective surgery.I do not see why I as a hard working NHS employee and Tax payer should pay for his vanity. In fact if you look at his unnatural features he looks awful. Look how grotesque Michael Jackson ended up. He was a handsome lad who became infatuated with Diana Ross. He would have been better paying for psychological treatment than ruining his body through elective surgery. There are many more people who are paying for botox and lip augmentation plus other unnecessary surgery who actually end up looking like fish! Their money their choice but don't expect us to pick up the tab when things go drastically wrong!

Could not have said it better myself. It makes me wonder why friends and family do not step up and try to get these people the psychological help they need. Michael Jackson was very handsome and then, well he sort of took after the zombies in his "Thriller" video. This "Ken" doll looks so mis-proportioned, it's sad. The "six pack abs" for instance? He could have started himself on a diet and exercise regimen instead of opting to get it done surgically. Can he really demand the NHS pay for this newest reconstructive surgery?

If he wants it free of charge, I can do it for him. I will just take a hammer and smash his nose, and then glue it back in whatever shape he wants.

I don't know, and it's sad that this hasn't taught them a lesson. All of those un-necessary surgeries, and he doesn't even look attractive!

@ScribbledAdNauseum they have the money to waste to distort their faces and yet they demand money for their psychotic actions.

I do not believe that he can claim this. The first surgery was not necessary, he decided to have a new nose, if he is not satisfied, he has to ask for a new one and PAY for it.

Yes, I don't believe he would be able to claim it either. I figure the publicity on it is a last ditch attempt to make it happen. Of course, I don't know for sure.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Of course I cannot know for sure, but this would be weird. Many people who had wrong surgery that they really needed, did not get compensation.

@LadyDuck You're right, there are still many whose surgery has gone wrong but it was a necessary surgery, and yet they weren't compensated.

He looks creepy and deformed.I dont mind plastic surgery it if means enhancing your features or removing deformities but trying to look like someone else intentionally is obviously a sign of insanity.

Yes, he looks really horrible. I am not sure why he thinks he looks so good, maybe he had a fun house mirror installed in his home? It's sad really though.

Last time i heard about something like this was when MJ dropped his nose on stage. He doesen't do this for the money of NHS beacuse he knows he will never get them. he's doing this for publicity.

I beg to differ, I don't think it's for attention. He's vain and very conscious of his appearance. He's probably only doing this as a last bid to get the NHS to pay.

I doubt it will happen, but then I don't know about the NHS and their guidelines.

I would say he has put himself in this position so he needs to pay if he is going to do this another time. I wonder what is wrong with him?

Vain syndrome? Why would anyone want to look like a Ken doll anyway? I guess he could always date one of the two "Barbie" dolls I've heard of.
