omg thats so great! much cheaper than I would have thought! please share the name of your surgeon as I would like to have an arm reduction at some point. I'm south but i don't care if I have to travel for it at that price.

 

If I didnt want to try for our second baby next year, I would love to have a tummy tuck. :)

Yes, Dr Mark Moore , he has no website , he is not a trendy / fancy plastc surgeon but a specialist reconstructive surgeon. There is much info on him on the gastric sleeve support forum. People fly from all over oz to see him and love his work. Im at the airport waiting for my flight home, more later

Time to get hubby to organise a work trip to Adelaide :P How does the referral work though, can you get a referral from a NSW GP to a doctor in SA?

Wow, all my specialist stuff gets done in Adelaide including my lapband stuff.  I didn't realise it would be this attainable in terms of $$$.  Might have to wait to hear what you have to say about his 'work' Greg if you don't mind us asking that is.  Safe travels.

yes, yes, Im dont filter so I will show pics; I like this forum but really its crap for info on plastics , anyone interested in plastics should spend a few hours browsing ; http://www.gastricsleevesupport.com/f7-plastic-surgery

 

there is so much info and its how I found out about Dr Moore's work and affordability

HCF top hosp cover, as its reconstructive after weightloss from bariatric surgery it has a medicare No which means the private cover pays for the hosp , I have to pay for surgeon and gas passer

a bit of an update now everything is locked & loaded;

 

My op date has changed, now monday 3rd June, Im having a Fleur De Lis Abdominoplasty ( horizontal hip to hip cut and a vertical cut )

4 nights in hospital then I will be spending 4 nights in a motel close to the hospital in Adelaide before I fly home. The nights in Adelaide is not a necessity as Dr Moore has had patients fly home the day after release from hospital but he said if i could stay it would be better and as its so cheap anyway Im happy to do it. Dr Moore's team are very used to interstate patients as people fly from all over Oz to see him

 

Costs

Dr Moore's fee - $3000 of which $967 will be refunded by medicare and PHI

Anaesthetics fee - $1600 out of pocket

1x $450 co payments for my PHI and they pay the rest of the hospital costs

 

so before flights and accom I will be out of pocket - $4050  and with flights and accom it will be well under $5000 and of course I will get some back on my tax as with this and my other medical expenses this year I am well over the $2000 threshhold.

 

roll on june :)

 

2 things I need to do is

1- loose 3kg and get back under 100

2- stop smoking next week :blink:

That's an awesome price. I've heard of him before thru this site and the other sleeve site, it's very tempting should things need a tidy up later on! Do you know off hand if he only does tummy tucks or if he also does breast surgery?
