I'm the original OP from this thread. Sorry in my few years away from EB I didn't realise the thread was still going.

I'm nearly three years down the track and it is most definitely worth it.

Please feel free to PM me if anyone has any questions.

Well, the quote arrived today and I am pleasantly surprised.

The cost is as follows:

* Tummy tuck:     $3,500
* Hernia repair:    $435
* Assistant:         $500
Total:                 $4,435

Less Medicare/Health Insurance Rebates:
* Tummy tuck:    $967
* Hernia:            $200
* Assistant:        $338

Out of Pocket Costs:   $2,930

Plus anaesthetist costs - I don't know the cost of this yet, but Medicare covers 75% of the scheduled fee and my health fund coves 25% of the scheduled fee.  I have to pay whatever is left.

My health fund totally covers the hospital costs.  It is being done in a private hospital.

I am in Queensland by the way.  I'm happy to PM anyone who would like it the name of my plastic surgeon.

If anyone has any other questions, also happy to answer them if I can.
Looking forward to 15th October!

Hi Dinah

Could you please send me details of who your surgeon was please I'm very interested

I've just had this done too (I'm in NSW) my costs were considerably higher but I did go with a top surgeon and they all charge differently

My breakdown of costs are
Tummy tuck with muscle repair $7000
Hernia repair  $1500
Assistant $750
Anaesthetist $3300

Total $12550
Plus $500 excess for private health insurance

I have so far received $477 back from Medicare from the anaesthetist (and expecting an extra $159 from health fund)
And about $2-$3k max back (Medicare and health fund rebates) for the surgery costs)
Health fund full covered the hospital stay.

I had several appointments with other surgeons in SYD prior to this and most surgeons are charging between $6 and $10k for the tummy tuck so to get it so cheap is quite rare I think

Hi I realise this thread is a bit old now but hoping for advice for those in SA.

I've had 3 c-sects which have left me with a 5.5cm abdominal separation and umbilical hernia (not to mention the saggy excess skin & a lot of discomfort). My GP referred me to a plastic surgeon who has quoted $20k - I'm heartbroken as I thought I'd be looking at around $8k. Does $20k seem excessive? Can anyone recommend a plastic surgeon in Adelaide who is good but won't cost as much?

20k sounds like way too much. Not likely to getbit done for $8000 but there are clinics in SA that charge around $9000-10000 (I got a quote about a year ago) and even to have it done in hospital with 2 nights stay I was quoted under $11000.  If I can find the details of the surgeon I'll PM you

Thank you Lozzylots, I thought the price was excessive! Any help with clinic names would be greatly appreciated:-)
