    Hi there. There are some Medicare criteria that you must have to qualify.

    The nipple must be below the infra-mammary fold, and it must be not less than 1 year, and not more than 7 years after the end of the most recent pregnancy. 

    This may qualify you for a breast lift, but speak to your surgeon.  The situation can change and you should also speak to your health fund if applicable.

    I hope this helps.
