Asked on behalf of someone else –

“I have lower back problems. Nerve damage to 4 of mY joints in my spine. Very painful. I’m undergoing treatment of cortisone injections and start physio soon. I have alot of excess weight of skin or flab. I feel that this excess is putting extra and unnecessary pressure on my spine.. would I be eligible for tummy tuck boob lift and thigh reduction.”
