- A UK woman who had expensive gender reassignment surgery paid for by the National Health Service wants to reverse the procedure
- She is living on benefits and again wants taxpayers to foot the bill
- She says that she finds it exhausting to maintain her life as a woman
Chelsea Attonley (30), originally from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, was born a boy named Matthew. She struggled with gender identity issues and decided she wanted a sex change.
She underwent a boob job in Thailand which cost £5,000 and later changed her name by deed poll.
This came after she started dressing up as a drag queen, calling herself Miss Malibu.
The total cost of her surgeries and treatments was around £10,000. She now wants the NHS to fund further treatment and surgery to reverse her gender so she can go back to living as Matthew. This will cost another £14,000.
Chelsea says that she finds dressing up and putting on make-up as a woman exhausting. She drew on the styles of Katie Price and the model Jordan as her inspiration for her wardrobe, favoring mini-skirts and stilettos.
She is living on benefits in London and says that she has come to realize after seven years as living as a woman that she should have just stayed a man.
Chelsea also says that she has not been able to work due to depression, mostly due to hormone treatment and never being fully accepted as a woman.
Included in her planned future operations is the reconstruction of a penis and reduction of her FF cup-sized breats.
