**In certain circumstances, as specified by Medicare Item Number 30177 (or mini abdominoplasty 30174), some of your procedure may be covered by your Private Health Insurance. Depending on your health fund, this may involve obtaining approval from Medicare prior to your operation date. During your initial consultation, Dr Sandercoe will let you know if you are likely to fulfil these criteria for your tummy tuck in Sydney.
