The New Yorker rmagazine eports in its July 26th edition that members of all four branches of the U.S. military can get face-lifts, boob jobs, liposuction and nose jobs for free — something the military says helps surgeons practice their skills.
“Anyone wearing a uniform is eligible,” Dr. Bob Lyons, chief of plastic surgery at Brooke Army Medical Centre in San Antonio told the magazine, which said soldiers needed the approval of their commanding officers to get the time off.
Between 2000 and 2003, military doctors performed 496 breast enlargements and 1,361 liposuction surgeries on soldiers and their dependants, the magazine said.
