  1. Hi All Well I was super excited today to start ringing surgeries to get an idea of out of pocket for tummy tuck. Tummy tuck is required due to weight loss. I have private health insurance and I'm really shocked (obviously naive) at the costs I've been quoted . It has ranged from $3500-12k here in Adelaide. I had a breast reduction last year and that was $1k out of pocket. Has anyone been quoted cheaper than the $3500k. Thanks from stressing.....😭
  2. Hi Ladies, I'm just hoping for some feedback on costs of your Tummy Tuck surgeries and length of stay needed in hospital. Financially I don't want to stay in hospital at all after the surgery...it's just so crazy expensive on top of an already expensive procedure. However, I do actually WANT to stay in hospital (away from the 3 kids) so I can recover properly. Champagne taste beer budget! I am yet to have an initial appointment with any Plastic Surgeons yet (I'm in Brisbane)... but I'm not sure if certain plastic surgeons use more expensive hospitals, or force you to stay in longer etc... I've been quoted roughly over the phone $19,000 inclusive of a 7 night stay. YIKES! I've got pretty bad diastasis recti up to my ribs, an an umbilical hernia so it won't be just a mini tummy tuck either. So would love to hear if you've seen a plastic surgeon and NOT stayed in for more than one night... Was it manageable? Has anyone managed to find a TT for under $13k including several nights in hospital in Brisbane? (after this ridiculous new 'abdominoplasy is not deemed medical' change from medicare?) Also, any feedback on Anthony Kane, Paul Belt, Alys Saylor or Susan O'Mahony? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi Guys, I'm planning on going to Thailand for Rhinoplasty and I'm hoping someone could give me a run through of their experience with Dr Montien? He seems to have no negative reviews and a lot of positive so I'm leaning towards him. I've seen a few posts with regards to going through tour groups but can anyone tell me if they've been direct? Without a tour company? Price differences maybe? I've been to Thailand on holiday a few times and I'm quite savvy with flights and accommodation and have a good handle on the atmosphere, how not to get ripped off by cab and tuk tuk drivers etc. so I'm confident enough to go it alone (unless someone wants to join me on this quiet adventure that I'm not telling most of my friends and family about? I'd welcome the company from a fellow silent surgery goer). My second child is only a few months old and my husband works in the mines and gets two weeks off so once I can time things at home right then I'm going over. To give you an idea, my last trip over was in Feb last year and I flew from the Gold Coast via Singapore to Bangkok return and paid $498AUD for flights and then $272 for 8 nights, 5 star accommodation in Ratchathewi and I'm not sure if going through a tour company would be the best value for money. Only issue is, I've never had surgery over there so it's new territory for me which is why I'm asking if anyone has been direct to Dr Montien or got direct quotes and tour quotes I could maybe compare with? I'm also planning on a tummy tuck and breast augmentation but I'm trying to be patient about that until my body settles from pregnancy - That and I don't want to have to recover from all three things at once as I imagine the rhinoplasty is gonna be a challenge all on its own. Any advice or experiences or quotes or comparisons would be so greatly appreciated! Cheers!
  4. Hi there, I'm 34 years old girl based in Adelaide SA - no children. Surgery - BOTH Majora & Minora I have been bothered by my lifetime of discomfort/pain whilst sitting, standing, walking, riding bicycles - it gets stuck 'down there', chaffing and removing my underwear hurts! Don't get me started on the attempts to tuck it in and the toilet paper issues... 😨 Its absolutely embarrassing to see the bulge & outline in my workout pants - I'm restricted to selected Lorna Jane pants. All can see everything through my bikini bottoms - I have about 15 pairs in effort to find a way to conceal it all! Can anyone please send me recommended & experienced plastic surgeon - perhaps even share your experiences with me for both Labia Majora & Minora procedures? The surgery locations are preferred to be based in South Australia and/or Victoria perhaps Melbourne area as well? How many trips would I need to make OR how long to stay in Melbourne etc? Can I book the consultation and the surgery ahead in close proximity of each of the 2 appointments? Are there any tips or guides you can provide me? Cost guides, techniques/methods used, type of aesthetic suggested, healing process, downtime expected and preparation I'll need? What questions are key to achieving what I want? Including the removal of dark coloring on the lips from the chaffing..? As I'm so embarrassed, I'm going to see if I can keep the procedure quiet and take care of myself. Is this realistic? As with everyone, it's so important to get it right. Its taken me the longest time to even get the courage to ask about it - but I was rudely shut down by a GP during my last Pap smear (which I'm well overdue for). Does medicare or my Medibank Silver Prioity offer rebates? Do I need to stay in hospital? If so, how long for? ANY advice, reference points, shared experiences you can provide me is completely invaluable and appreciated in advance! 💋
  5. It's wasn't until I saw Before and After pictures on a few Google Image searches that I realized I have grown up with Tuberous Breasts. I had always felt insecure and awkward about my breasts but I felt a sense of comfort once I realized that this condition is so comon! I booked in to see my GP and got a referral to Dr David Theile in Brisbane. I have researched Dr Theile and am excited to be having a consultation with him next week! I'am wanting to hear of your experiences with Dr David Theile, and anyone that has had this kind of surgery covered by Medicare (no I don't have any private health cover). Also if anyone has good recommendations for a loan that will cover my costs. Any opinions are valued!
  6. Hi guys, which doctors in NSW do you know of that do a first BA starting under $10k? Obviously there is dr doña and TCI, but wondering if there are others. i have seen posts mentioning dr drielsma does them for $8500 and other posts saying he is $11k. thanks y'all! Xx
  7. Hi everyone! I've spent most of my day reading up on BA + lifts and what not, and after reading a post about post op bras, I'm just wondering what other costs I might not have thought of. Obviously you've got: Surgery & associated costs (within your quote) Accomodation Flights Spending money whilst on your holiday Post op bras What else do I need to take into account? Please and thank you
