i've had 18 plastic/reconstructive surgeries, and plan on a couple of more. however, i've never had a breast implant, or something went terribly wrong!
i think the hospitals should give their employees discounts on any surgery. it shouldn't matter which kind of surgery is wanted or needed. dr's should give the staff a discount as well.
that way, you should save 20% on the total cost of the surgery, at least.
by the way, wouldn't this end up being a perk to lure more customers to that hospital?
