Speaking of fjord-hoppers, this woman took the rack and ran:
- “It is crystal clear that she has tried to avoid paying for her breasts,” said Jennifer McShane of Sweden’s Channel 5 to newspaper Expressen.
The first episode of the series produced by Strix offers the story of a 28-year-old Norwegian woman looking to augment her breasts. Strix pays participants for taking part but the subjects must pay for the operations themselves.
The breast job cost SEK 49,000, and the woman didn’t have it.
The Plastic Surgery Center in Malmo agreed to an installment plan for the payments and carried out the operation, then the woman vanished.
“She took her breasts and left,” said plastic surgeon Carl Troilius.
Neither Channel 5 nor Strix have been able to locate the woman but their TV footage, which will be aired next week on Swedish TV, may be used in evidence against her if the case goes to trial.
Damn, Swedish TV is cheap – they don’t even pay for the operation they are chronicling? Of course, if running fast was what the woman wanted, she would have been better off with her standard issue models. Another option for the producers: turn the show into Sweden’s Most Wanted – no charge for the suggestion. I can see the doctor yelling out the hospital door: “You’ll not get far with those melons!”
