Phuket boob job holiday? This round’s on me

PHUKET: A cosmetic surgery holiday company in Australia is now raffling off a trip to Phuket, complete with the option of breast augmentation surgery – all for the price of a round of drinks.

The company, ID Rejuvenation, has paired up with the popular local nightclub Tryst, in Mackay on the Central Queensland coast, to offer the deal, reported the local newspaper CQNews.

Amy Price, head of ID client services, explained that willing punters need to simply spend $50 on drinks at Tryst.

Cosmetic surgery is popular in the coastal country town, but is out of most local residents’ budgets, she explained.

“I know probably 10 girls that have just got breast implants this month,” Ms Price told the Daily Mercury.

Ms Price, who has also had breast implants, said that for many women cosmetic surgery was about gaining self-confidence.

“It’s good to have that kind of perspective to tell girls about it when they come up and ask,” she said.

Ms Price said the competition, launched last weekend, had already generated much interest from male and female patrons.

While most people inquired about breast augmentation, many also asked about dental work, laser corrective eye surgery and other cosmetic procedures such as nose jobs, liposuction and eye-lifts, she said.

Phuket ranked high on the company’s medical tourism list of destinations.

“We had a testimonial by one girl who had the surgery one day and spent the next day drinking cocktails by the pool,” Ms Price said.

The competition prize pays for flights, five nights’ accommodation and surgery.

Patrons compile their dollar-value of drinks on a punch card, which is then entered in a lucky draw. They can enter as many times as they like.

The winner will be drawn at the end of July.
