It needs to be seen as a medical reason for doing the tummy tuck not just cosmetic - so if your muscle is badly split (and can't be fixed with physio), hernia, severe loose skin etc not just a bit of a flabby tummy that want to look nicer. I think it is up to the surgeons discretion - at present i am 'borderline' as to whether i qualify (according to the gp) so waiting to see what is said when i see the plastic surgeon.
I will happily report back after my appointment and let people know what i've learnt re: criteria and costs.

Thanks heaps everyone! I doubt if I could convince anyone that mine were medically necessary...
Does anyone know the ballpark costs for breast lift and/or tummy tuck if not covered by Medicare?

It depends a lot on the surgeon, the anesthetist and the hospitals fees. My friend that had a breast reduction and lift was out of pocket just over $11,000 grand from first consultation to the last one...

As you see, it is not much that you are covered by, and it is the medically needed stuff that is. Aneasthetic fees and surgical costs you basically recieve a return for. I know if medicare approves it, your private insurance in some cases will allow it to be covered in some way.
Sorry I can't help with how much it costs overall, it varies so much depending on what you need and your skin, shape, etc. But you can get a free consult to see and go to different places.
