Can anyone fill me in please?
I dream of a breast lift and tummy tuck, but have no idea about the cost. Would love to hear others' experiences if you're happy to share.

Medicare can cover a tummy & boobs. Im out of pocket about 4k for boobs & belly.
My face was 10k 8 years ago.

I'll get back to you in a month after i've seen the plastic surgeon - i forget the exact criteria for a medicare covered tummy tuck but basically it has to be considered beyond just a cosmetic procedure (ie the damage is sufficient enough), your last child must be at least 12 month old. It's not simple - unless you have very pretty compelling reasons but worth a shot.

No, I know the rules for a breast lift being covered (hopefully I will get one after my last breastfed bub) but not for a tummy tuck. I do have a relative in law who had one after twins and it was completely covered. It is to do with your abdominal split and if it can't be repaired with therapy and physio and surgery is your only option.
It is all on the medicare website, Ill try to find it later, it took me a while to find it last time and about to do bed routine
