During your full medical consultation, we’ll cover the following discussions:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Our surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Take photographs
  • Discuss your surgical options
  • Recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of surgery and any risks or potential complications
  • Preview your surgical outcome with our Crisalix 3D technology, which simulate the different options and select your favourite. (Available only for selected procedures, if appropriate).
  • Discuss about the surgery cost and payment options

The consultation is the time to ask our surgeon questions for specific information about your case.

It’s very important to understand all aspects of your surgical procedure. It’s natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with our surgeon.

FAQs From Our Patients

Price ranges for many of the most common procedures are available on this site under the Procedures tab on the menu (see the information on the particular operation you are interested in).

For a full personalised quote you should book for a consultation as every patient has different needs and it is always best to discuss procedures being considered directly with your surgeon. We often find that patients who come in looking for a particular procedure could actually get the results they are looking for with an alternative treatment which costs substantially less, making the cost of the consultation well worth it.

Our fees are very competitive but should just be one element of your decision making process – the surgeon’s qualifications, experience and your comfort with him are just as important as the cost of the surgery.

Remember that different providers have different qualifications. Only accredited OncoPlastic, General and Cosmetic surgeon like Dr Yunaev (FRACS) have completed the extended surgical training and have passed the rigorous examinations required to obtain that title.

Unfortunately, we are unable to “bulk bill” or “no gap” for most services. There are frequent gaps between the surgeon’s fees and the amount you can receive back as a rebate from Medicare and your health fund. This is because these rebates have continued to lag well behind inflation and do not reflect the true cost of providing health care.

Breast and Body Clinic will provide a fee estimate for surgery and we ask that you to check with your health fund to determine your specific rebate entitlement. We also invite you to discuss fees with our administration team.

With all surgical procedures there are three main types of costs that need to be considered. These are the surgical fee, the anaesthetic fee and the hospital fee.

The anaesthetic fee is time dependent, while the hospital fee may vary depending on which hospital you choose to have your surgery performed at. Your private health fund may cover some of these elements which can significantly reduce the overall costs. We will prepare a detailed invoice which will explain and itemise all the costs that are associated with your procedure.

For cosmetic procedures, please note that there is a deposit of 20% of the surgical fee due when you book in your procedure which becomes non-refundable after a 7 day cooling off period. This is required to secure a date for your operation in hospital.

Note that all cosmetic surgery operations must be paid in full 1 weeks prior to the scheduled procedure. If payment is not received by the due date, the operation may be cancelled or postponed.

Yes, we offer payment plans for breast augmentation, breast reduction, tummy tucks and other cosmetic surgery we offer in Sydney, Bella Vista and Bowral. For patients booking surgery up to 6 months in advance, we are happy to accept regular payments up until 2 weeks before the surgery is scheduled when the final payment is due. This is of course interest-free and means you don’t have the worry of paying for your procedure after you have had it. We just ask that if your payments are made via direct deposit that they always include your surname for tracking.

We do not offer finance as it is illegal for all aesthetic clinics to refer to financing companies in advertising. Please come in for the medical consultation and we will discuss different options for you to fund the surgery in person.

The level of coverage varies on the type of procedure, level of cover you have, your waiting periods and the exclusions of your health fund.

We ask that patients to contact their health insurer once they have a quote from us which itemises the elements of their proposed procedure to see what cover they have. Due to privacy laws, Breast and Body Clinic cannot make these enquiries on your behalf so any estimate of health fund rebates we provide are indicative only and must be confirmed by the patient before the procedure to avoid potentially significant unexpected costs.

Once your procedure has been completed, you can take your receipt to Medicare if it has a Medicare item number (generally for breast reduction, abdominoplasty, weight loss skin removal and a number of other cosmetic surgery procedures). Purely cosmetic procedures (such an anti-wrinkle injections or breast augmentations) do not attract a Medicare rebate.

Once Medicare has assessed your claim, you can take your documentation to your health fund. Generally, health funds won’t pay a rebate on items not subject to a Medicare rebate and they will refuse all claims were the primary purpose of the surgery was cosmetic.

Superannuation release on compassionate or tax grounds is possible, but also challenging. It is only available in cases of chronic or acute pain and generally is only granted for patients seeking surgery such as breast reductions or abdominoplasty where the patient is suffering ongoing pain. Find out more on the ATO website. Please note that we cannot complete this form for you – you need to start the process and have your GP provide a report. For those committed to surgery, we will then complete our section of the paperwork for a $100 administration fee.
