I'm 25, 5'7", 55ish kg. single. DD-E down pointing/saggy boobs. It has been suggested on RealSelf that I may also be mildly tuberous. So I want to go for a BL (no implants) but I'm concerned about costs. I won't be covered with Medicare as I don't have and don't want children. I only earn 40K, which when you take out inner Melb suburb rent prices/tax/living expenses etc, it doesn't leave a whole lot of savings. I'd rather not take out a loan beyond my means and wish to remain debt free. So I guess I'm asking how others have financed their surgery? Could anyone recommend a private hospital cover (I don't currently have any insurance) that would cover the stay/anesthetic and whatnot if not the actual surgery?
Hi Lovlies! I've looked at the forum's for months and finally decided to join :-) before I get into my questions and other peoples opinions/stories I want to start with a quick background on myself and previous surgery... When I freshly turned 18 (literally the same week) I had a breast reduction.. I went from an F to a C cup and at the time I also weighted ~85kgs Now I'm 21 and have lost 32kgs since my reduction (which probably sounds like 'too much' but I'm only 5"3!) since my weight loss my breasts are absolutely horrendous.. I'm a small C/large B cup currently and due to the huge weight loss my breasts have really taken a toll. They look like I'm about 60 years old (incredibly saggy) and my areola use to be in portion with the size of my breast but now take up majority of my breast.. I can't show any cleavage because no matter which bra I wear the areola 'peeps' at the top and middle because it takes up so much of my breast.. I won't even take my bra off in front of my boyfriend I am that self-conscious about it and it really upsets me. Bikinis are even out of the question. I've been fitted by multiple people because I thought maybe I had the incorrect size but it's because my areola's start at the very top of my breast. They also sit incredibly low as well.. to give a visual my breast starts at a lower height than my armpit and reach to my elbow when braless. Anyway.. so now I am wanting a BA and breast lift. Has anybody else known somebody to have a reduction then a BA years after? It sounds ridiculous, even to me! Many people say "you had them made smaller now you want big again!?" My main goal is to achieve perky, rounded breasts with small areolas. I like the look and shape implants can give to the breast and I only want to go up to a D cup. I want to go see Mark Lee because I've heard fantastic things. However, the cost is a huge issue for me. I don't have $15k I can use to blow on cosmetic surgery (or anything at that!) and being a full-time student who works casually I highly doubt I will get a loan approved form anybody. SO.. here is my next question.. can this at all be covered by private health insurance or not? Or any surgeons known in Perth who would bill as 'medical' rather than 'cosmetic'?? that is how I got my reduction.. Because I am petite/small framed F cup breasts where far too heavy and took over my torso almost! so I had it covered because it was a medical issue (then I lost all my weight because I could finally run/workout) The reason I am posting here instead of discussing with a surgeon FIRST is I wanted to see if anybody had similar stories or know surgeons who I can tell my issues and them be happy to assist with billing me 'medically'.. basically I don't want to waste my time and couple hundred $$ consultation fee or waste the surgeons time if this is utterly pointless. I don't want to appear 'rude' but I am absolutely desperate. Thanks ladies Please feel free to share any stories and opinions
