I have heard in the past that if you have had 3 medically needed c-sections you are entitled to a tummy tuck and it will be covered by Medicare.
Is there any truth in this? And can you have it done at the same time as your 3rd c-section?
I have also heard there is a rebate for breast reduction & lift after breastfeeding 3 babies. Would also love for this to be true.
Does anybody have any experience, stories, advice or expertise in this area that can help me as I can't really find anything.

As for a breast lift, my friend who's had 5 children wanted one after BF all of them and she had to pay the whole amount herself. The surgeon said her's wasn't medically necessary.
