It's wrong she should not be allowed to have ( or rather he) should not be allowed to have that surgery on the NHS. Breast Augmentation isn't done for most transsexuals what's so special about a 19 year old who isn't even British being allowed this and to look like a pop star. Seems the GIC clinic's apply one rule for most ts's and another for this one. It's wrong. I paid for all my surgery and when I wanted my implants reduced though only wanted to remove them not replace them.
The rules must be the same for everyone.

Whilst I know what it feels like to be Intensely dysphoric and am seeking medical assistance and the necessary treatments to transition to attain congruity I do worry that this is quite a misrepresentation. First up the cost of the surgery is not necessarily that high particularly if transitioning is begun young but also the rather misguided "I want to look like..." I mean I identified with a range of women when young (and still I'd as female now...it's what I am, internally...) being anyone else or believing that one should look like anyone else is distinctly worrying and maybe transitioning for the wrong reasons...we transition because we are (either a man or woman already) not because we need to be another person...
Beyond that, the best of luck for her...
