Your policy cover now covers fat transfer procedures

May 28, 2018

Avant has recently made some changes to our coverage for plastic surgeons which benefit both you and your patients.

From 1 July 2018, cover will be included for transfer or injection of non-vascularised fat (which includes autologous fat transfer for both reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery) for doctors in the General Plastic Surgeon category of practice, without the need to seek endorsement from Avant.

Importantly, cover for these procedures is limited to practitioners who hold a FRACS and excludes cosmetic practitioners who are not recognised surgical specialists.
