How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?
Breast reduction provides significant relief from the physical and psychological burdens caused by oversized, heavy breasts. If your breasts are too heavy for your frame or so large that they impact your day-to-day activities, breast reduction with Dr. Adrian Sjarif may help you enjoy a better quality of life.
Because surgery is different for every woman, the price of breast reduction in Sydney, Wollongong and the surrounding areas can vary widely. The estimated treatment costs depend on a number of factors, including the specific plan of treatment, the skill of the surgeon performing the operation and the geographical area in which surgery is performed. It’s nearly impossible for Dr. Sjarif to provide an accurate cost estimate without meeting you in person, evaluating your needs and determining the plan of treatment.
Does Insurance Cover Breast Reduction?
The benefits of breast reduction are widely recognized. If you have very large, heavy breasts, you have probably dreamed about how reducing them will positively improve your physical function and psyche. Breast reduction can substantially decrease or even eliminate the chronic pain, rashes and other health problems you might experience due to oversized breasts.
Because breast reduction is often performed for medical or functional reasons, it is one of the rare plastic surgery procedures that may be deemed “medically necessary,” and therefore partially covered by Medicare and private health funds.
Your private health fund should cover all your operating theatre costs as well as any accommodation costs incurred, leaving you to pay a relatively small “gap” fee for surgeon and anaesthetic costs.
Quality Care at Reasonable Costs
Cost is a major factor in any decision, and Dr. Sjarif is very conscious of this. However, he does not believe cost should be the determining factor. The experience and skill of the surgeon performing the operation is the most important element. Selecting a surgeon that charges much less than other surgeons in the area could end up costing you more money over time in revision surgery fees.
Dr. Sjarif is deeply committed to offering quality surgical care at reasonable costs, but he will never cut corners or sacrifice your safety or the quality of your care to save you money. Our office staff will work with you to discuss payment options so you can have your surgery as soon as reasonably possible.
