I am 24 and have size 10G breasts (I know- what many probably dream of but not me) – they cause me a lot of back/shoulder pain and I just want smaller boobs so I don\’t have the problem anymore. I do have private health insurance but have my doubts that they\’d cover me. Is it ever possible to get a whole procedure done on medicare or will there always be thousands to pay even after it. Do people having a reduction usually have implants after? (like take away all the tissue and replace it with an implant?) any advice would be appreciated as if I want to get on a public waiting list it would good to be sooner rather than later…

it is possible to have a breast reduction in a public hospital. Your GP would be able to refer you. Almost certainly the waiting list will be considerable. Were this to happen there would be no cost to you.
