Enjoy this Facebook Live video recording where we have a Before & After questions for breast reduction and tummy tuck with Dr Charles Cope who is a Specialist Plastic Surgeon based in Sydney, NSW. Dr Cope answers all the group questions including the following questions.
Q: My boobs are still huge but sagging after breastfeeding 2 kids and I’m thinking about having a reduction, but I don’t want to end up feeling like I’m TOO small, and how do I know I’ll get a good shape? I don’t really want implants…
Q: When is a breast reduction covered by Medicare? What if there’s debilitating back and shoulder pain?
Q: Are you covered by Medicare if you need a tummy tuck because of muscle separation? What other circumstances might you be covered?
Q: Can a mons pubis reduction be done at the same time as a tummy tuck and does it cost extra or is it considered a different procedure?
Q: I’ve heard that some surgeons use drains for a tummy tuck and some don’t. Does it depend on the patient? Do you use drains? For every patient? Does it prolong the recovery? Does it affect your ability to wear compression garments? Can you explain the different stages of a tummy tuck recovery and how long it lasts for?
