Would I be suitable for Breast reduction?

165cm, 60kg, 44 years. I am really fed up of having to buy clothes that are too big in order to fit my breasts. Would I be suitable for reduction surgery and would I be eligible for any Medicare support?

    Hi,Thanks for the photos, and from these I do think you would be suitable for a breast reduction of course pending a full assessment at a consultation. I also  do you would achieve an excellent result, and can appreciate the issues yuo are having with clothing and being " top heavy"
    With regards to Medicare, you would be elegible to a rebate if you chose to have the procedure performed as a Private patient, and this would potentially have implication for Private insurance covering hospital costs if that was the position you were  in, and depending on the level of that cover.
    I hope that is of some help - and all the best
