    Question Tricare tummy tuck question

    Advertisements
    Ok I have heard that on occasion you can get tricare to pay for a tummy tuck. Does anyone know if this is true? I had two c-sections and now I have a HUGE flap of skin that I can't get to go away, and I am starting to have some issues with it that I can't get them to go away.

    TIA ladies

    I had a close friend who had one. It took her a long time to get Tri-Care to cover it. Basically, she had a separated muscles, and she had to prove that it wasn't a cosmetic reason.

    I don't think they cover it in normal circumstances, however if you want a boob job you're good to go.

    Because it hurts your self esteem to have teenie boobies. That's how it was explained to me anyway. Cause, you know. This kangaroo pouch I'm carrying around makes me feel HAWT!

    My sister had a tummy tuck done, but it was after she had gastric--it was also about 16 years ago, so a lot has changed.

    I want a boob job, tummy tuck, and lipo. I don't like my chin either. And my ass could be lifted a bit higher ...
