What are the costs and how can I pay for them?

The most common barrier to having corrective surgery after large weightloss is the cost.

The following is a summary of the costs involved and some tips on how to make surgery and its
benefits more accessible.

There are essentially THREE expenses associated with each operation:
1. Surgeon fees ( including assistants fees)
2. Anaesthetist fees
3. Hospital fees

We are pleased to simplify the payments process and affordability by offering surgical packages that take the guesswork and uncertainty out of the process.

Any two operations from the list below: $23,990.

This price is all inclusive of surgery, anaesthetic and assistant fees.

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Breast reduction / lift
  • Arm reduction
  • Thighlift/ reduction

To further improve affordability, we offer inhouse payment plans. You pay $14,990 up front and then pay the remainder off over 18 months at $119 per week.

Options for Paying the Upfront Surgery fee

  1. Pay outright from savings, credit cards or personal loans from different credit providers.
  2. Superannuation Some people choose to  access their accumulated superannuation funds.

Whilst we generally advise caution accessing your super as it may impact your retirement savings, there are provisions  to release your super funds on the basis of  chronic pain or depression resulting from  your condition.

  1. You can apply  to your super fund yourself – see the government guidelines

  2. Or you can  enlist a third party to help you through this process: mysupercare.com.au

Hospital Costs

Private Hospitals charge both for the time spent in the operating theatre AND the wardaccommodation after surgery. The hospital fees can add a  significant amount to the overall cost of Post-weightloss surgery . Most post-weightloss operations carry a medical item number set by Medicare and hence they qualify for private insurance cover.

Private insurance can potentially bring hospital costs down to ZERO.

We strongly recommend private health insurance with full hospital cover.

Make sure your insurance policy covers weightloss surgery and non-cosmetic plastic surgery.

You can compare different health plans and insurance policies on insurance comparison sites like the

  1. government website privatehealth.gov.au/compare
  2. or commercial comparison sites iselect.com.au or www.comparethemarket.com.au
