    Is it safe to have a breast implant revision and tummy tuck together?

    After breast feeding 4 children, I had breast implants done in August 1974 and they were still soft until last year when I lost 14kg in weight after developing type 1 diabetes and also having my thyroid gland removed. My breasts have shrunk and sagged and I have a lot of loose skin on my abdomen. Will my private fund and Medicare contribute to my operation costs?

    This is a complicated question to answer precisely. It will depend on several things, including whether your implants are simply removed, or removed and replaced with a similar sized implant etc etc, and whether you have significant dermatological symptoms from your excess abdominal skin. You'll first need to sit down and discuss your situation with a plastic surgeon, and decide exactly what surgical plan would be best for you.
