I am looking at getting a breast augmentation and lift. I started a weight loss journey two years ago due to my health and the fact I was considered morbidly obese, since then I have lost 40kgs. I am proud of my journey, but as a result I am extremely self consious of my body, particularly my breasts, as I have gone from an e cup to a small c cup. So you can imagine how they now look, and as a 23 year old girl, I shouldnt feel like this. It does get to me.
Just wonderng if medicare or my private health fund can help me out at all and if I can get some information on how to go about starting the process of seeing a plastic surgeon.
Thanks for your question. Congrats on your journey and the weight loss. Yes, plastic surgery can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. It sounds like you will need a lift, but if you have enough breast tissue, it can be rearranged to give you some volume, this way you may not need an implant. I cannot make this decision without a consultation.
As of 1st January 2015, private health funds are making it difficult to obtain cover for operations that they think may be cosmetic. But this is if you are BUPA and Medibank Private.
Happy to consult with you.
