Q & A’sCategory: BodyWould i be covered?
AvatarSusan asked 5 years ago

Hi, i am a mum of a 6 and 7 year old. I had lap band surgery 10 years ago and lost 40kg. As a result of the weight loss and breast feeding I am very much in need of a breast lift (breasts point completely south) and tummy tuck due to excess skin. I have basic private health insurance and would like to know if i would be covered at all?

Hi Susan Weightloss is eligible for rebates as far as I understand. You will need to see a Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, and if there are item numbers, you will get a rebate. They will be able to help you with all of this. Hope that helps. Trish
