Surgery Fees & Preparation

Discover information regarding costs, payment options, Medicare and private health insurance

Our team understands that patients would like to understand the costs associated with having cosmetic surgery. Patients find they would rather know the costs, rather than spending time having a consultation and deciding not to go ahead with the surgery. We have prepared useful information in relation to preparing for your surgery.

Please find the relevant information below.

Costs, Medicare & Private Health Insurance

How much does a consultation with Dr Hanikeri cost?

The fee for your initial consultation will be $250. This is required at the time of making a booking to secure your appointment. Additional consultations required to clarify the procedure plan will be $120.

We believe in providing exceptional support throughout your recovery journey. That’s why post-operative check-ups, dressing changes, and suture removal are all included in the procedure cost and do not incur additional fees.

Can I claim a rebate from Medicare?

If your proposed surgery is eligible for a Medicare item number and you have a referral letter from your General Practitioner, you will receive a rebate of $80.85 from Medicare for your initial consultation.

A subsequent consultation is $120.00 with a rebate of $40.65 if you meet the above criteria.

What are the costs associated with my surgery?

There are three main fees associated with your surgery. The fee from Dr Hanikeri, the Anaesthetist, as well as the hospital (if you do not have private health insurance or an appropriate level of cover for your procedure).

These fees are provided to you at the time of your first consultation in the form of a ‘Surgical Fee Estimate’ for your information.

Do you offer payment plans for Surgery?

Patients have the option to participate in our pre-procedure payment plan prior to the procedure date.

After your second consultation with Mr Hanikeri, and a 7 day cooling off period (if you are considering cosmetic surgery), the next step is choosing a surgery date. Once a deposit is received to secure a date ($500.00), patients are then welcome to schedule regular payments up until two weeks before their proposed surgery date, when the final balance is due. These payments can be made weekly or monthly to suit our patient’s circumstances.

The above payment plan is interest-free. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. You can also approach third party loan providers or contact your bank for a personal loan. We are not affiliated with or do not endorse any particular financing company. As a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, we are not permitted to broker a third-party payment plan, as the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons and AHPRA do not permit this.

Can I access my superannuation to pay for surgery?

We do receive enquiries about accessing Superannuation funds for a surgical procedure.

Superannuation can only be released on compassionate grounds. In most circumstances, this is only successful for patients who are considering breast reduction, body contouring, or abdominoplasty procedures for medical reasons who meet the criteria for early release. This generally includes chronic or acute pain where patients can demonstrate ongoing medical issues.

What is our cancellation policy?

Should you need to reschedule a consultation appointment, we require at least 2 full working days’ notice to enable us to offer the appointment to our waitlisted patients. If you cancel an appointment, or simply do not attend on the day, then the booking fee will be forfeited.

Our cancellation of surgery policy is outlined in the contents of our TouchMD patient portal.

Preparing for your consultation

How to prepare for your consultation

Prior to your consultation, we will email you a link to our TouchMD portal. This requires you to choose a password to set up your profile. Within this portal, we will assign ‘homework’ which is a pre-consultation reading along with any sets of ‘Before and After’ photos of previous patients that may help you in understanding the procedure and potential outcomes. Please assist us by completing your TouchMD registration and reading the information provided within this. We also recommend preparing a list of questions to bring along to the consultation with you.

Where will my surgery take place?

Dr Hanikeri currently operates at St John of God Subiaco Hospital, West Leederville Private Hospital, Bethesda Hospital and Albany Day Hospital. If your procedure is a cosmetic procedure (no Medicare item numbers apply), then in most cases your surgery would be carried out at West Leederville Private Hospital.

Preparing you for surgery

All care will be directed to your individual needs. You need to have realistic expectations – the aim is to improve or enhance.. You must understand that we are all asymmetrical and results are different for each patient.

It is important that patients aim to be in good physical and mental health. Smoking is always a problem in plastic surgery as it is toxic and can prevent the blood flow required for healing. You must advise Dr Hanikeri of your smoking history and discuss a period of abstinence before and after your surgery. We recommend you abstain from smoking for at least six weeks prior to your surgery.

Surgical scars are permanent whilst swelling and bruising are only temporary. Some of the procedures that are performed require drains to be left in after surgery for a period of time (usually 24 to 48 hours), this will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation.

Recovery time varies between patients and procedures. However a minimum of 6 to 12 weeks is typical for many cosmetic surgeries and in many instances you will not be able to drive, do any strenuous activities or exercise for the first two weeks after your procedure.

Some patients may need a second procedure to achieve their goals, such as to correct asymmetry, surgical complications, or dog ears (a point of fold at the end of an incision) etc.
