    police hope to make big bust in plastic surgery crime


    an italian woman who had her breasts enlarged with the biggest silicone implants available is being hunted by police after she skipped out on the $12,000 plastic surgery bill.

    local newspapers report police have few leads as the woman used a false name, but are relying on a photograph to find her.

    the woman fled from an exclusive private hospital in rome a day after the two-hour operation which doubled her bust size.

    her plastic surgeon later said the fraud was not unusual.

    The Italians are wasting time chasing down the implant thief instead of rapists and murderers. It is good to know that the USA is not the only country with misguided crime fighting priorities.

    So should thieves be let off the hook?

    if she skipped out how come she wasn't knocked out cold right there on the spot?

    Another reason why most plastic surgeons have the patient PAY IN FULL before the procedure for strictly cosmetic cases that are not covered by insurance.
