Tuberous Breast Surgery - Experiences & Recommendations :)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have been suffering with Tuberous Breasts my whole life and have decided it is time to go ahead with surgery. I would LOVE to find out if anyone has had Tuberous Breasts corrected in the Sydney region and which surgeons they recommend? Also any information on obtaining the Medicare rebate that is available, and whether it is worth considering Private Health Care for further rebates?

At this stage I have been looking at The Cosmetic Institute (Dr Tang/Dr Dona), although I have heard Dr Tavokoli is a specialist in the area of TB correction.

Would love to know your thoughts! Thanks heaps :)

From what I know, tuberous breasts usually require a lift as well as implants. Dr Tang will not be able to do that for you but Dr Dona can, as well as Dr Tavakoli. I believe Dr Tavakoli's fee is a fair bit higher than Dr Dona though.

I have tuberous breasts and am currently in the process of organising BA and lift to correct tuberous breasts bilateral. I'm not in Sydney, I'm in Perth so I can't help with that part.

As for medicare, the surgeon I am considering going through sent my pictures off to medicare and they approved a rebate under a medical item number 45559 and it falls under reconsructive surgery. Having a medical item number recognised by medicare means my private health insurance will cover the cost of hospital fees, anesthetist fees, the cost of the implants and a small rebate also. There is a 12 month wait list for pre existing conditions for private health funds. Hope this helps.
