Breast reconstruction and breast implants

Hi, I have tubular breasts. I have found that Medicare and private health both cover breast surgeries to correct this. I can't get my head around how it works. If I am going private but with Medicare cover aswell how much will I be out of pocket. I can't find what Medicare deem as the correct cost and what they exactly cover. I need to know how much out of pocket I'll be or how will I be expected to come up with the money. It's so confusing. For example if surgeon costs are $6500 how much does Medicare and private cover? What other costs are there involved and what would a rough out of pocket figure look like?
