There's been a few threads about Medicare covering the costs of tummy tucks, breast lifts etc.
Some people have questioned after x number of c-sections are you entitled to a tummy tuck and Medicare pay for it.
Isn't our health system in crisis enough without Medicare paying for a tummy tuck?
To me, if your c-section scar is not causing any problems, you just don't like the look of it, you should pay for your own! Only when it becomes medically necessary should Medicare pay for it, ie, scar tissue attaching to internal organs.
I have horrible loose baggy skin from my pregnancy with DD, she was a vaginal birth, but my tummy is flabby, loose and covered in stretch marks and I don't expect the government to pay for a tummy tuck for me.
Women who have vaginal births can't get Medicare to pay for their vagina to be tightened back up to pre-childbirth unless absolutely necessary, even then, from what I have read on here, they have gone through hell to have it done! I've read stories of women having prolapsed bladders who couldn't leave the house for fear of leaking everywhere.
