In what will come across as a really shocking development, a man has spent a lot of money to get breast implants to secure a job.
A Chinese man who had become fed up with job hunting resorted to drastic means to improve his job prospects.
The 30-year-old from Zhuzhou City, in China’s Hunan province, reportedly underwent a breast enlargement procedure costing more than £4,500 as he thought women had better career prospects.
However, the man, surnamed Ho, was forced to have the implants removed just months later after it caused a rift in the family.
Ho was convinced that there were more career options open to women according to reports, which was why he opted for the cosmetic surgery.
He travelled to Changsha for breast enhancement surgery in August this year.
After his family discovered the surgery, he was forced to have the implants removed on September 26, according to Huanqiu.
At present, Ho is still recovering from the surgery to remove the implants.
Ho told a reporter from hunandushi.net, that the incident had caused him a lot of trouble.
The man said he has limited work experience and his job search had not been going well over the years.
He decided to change his appearance in the hope of finding a job.
The man’s mother was furious after learning her son had borrowed over 39,000 Yuan (£4,558), that is about N1.8 million, for the surgery.
His mother said in the video report: ‘I was so scared, how can it be like that? How can a man with such big boobs face others?’
She added: ‘I can’t tell you how many times I have cried in my room.’
She claims that Ho had a condition with his hearing after getting a concussion at the age of three. He reportedly has problems communicating with others.
His mother blamed the hospital for conducting the surgery without keeping the family informed.
Ho did not tell his family about the surgery at Ruilan Medical Cosmetic Hospital and borrowed cash for the procedure according to the report.
He said: ‘I did not have enough money for the surgery, so I consulted the hospital.
‘They told me I could pay for the surgery with a loan. They asked me to hand in my mobile phone and ID card.’
Ho claims that he agreed to have the surgery but denied that he had agreed to taking out a loan for the procedure.
He says that he has received calls from the lender every day, which almost led to him having a nervous breakdown.
A spokesperson from the Ruilan Medical Cosmetic Hospital told reporters: ‘He is over 18 years old. He has signed the documents. He should be responsible for his actions.’
Li visited the hospital on October 2 for negotiations.
The hospital eventually agreed to waive their fees and offer compensation of 3000 Yuan (£350), reported Hunan Xiaoxiang Herald.
It is not yet to known if they have come to an agreement.
