Surgical Rhinoplasty is not eligible for a Medicare rebate if it is done purely for cosmetic reasons. However, if you also have difficulty breathing through your nose, you will be able to claim part of your Surgical and Anaesthetic fees through Medicare.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
