    Patients in my practice undergoing breast reduction surgery are among the happiest. Benefits include relief from neck, shoulder and back pain. Public hospital waiting lists are typically very long. Medicare does not cover the full cost of this procedure when its performed in the private sector. Each surgeon has their own post operative guidelines which you should follow carefully after surgery.
