Q & A’sBreast Augmentation After Weightloss
AvatarAnonymous asked 6 years ago

I have lost a significant amount of weight and now have little elasticity and firmness left in my breasts.
I would like to know if this can be done through private health or medicare as I personally consider is reconstructive, however I know this is a complex matter.
Any advise would be appreciated.

The only way that Medicare will  consider an item number is if you have a child between the ages of 1 and 7 years.  And this is only for a breast lift.  With massive weight loss it is most likely you will require breast implants.  Medicare will not usually consider the use of implants in MWL ( massive weight loss)patients.
If you do not have Medicare item numbers then your private health fund will not come to the party.You may have no alternative but to pay privately.There are,however,loan companies that will assist  with loans for cosmetic surgery.
