Breast Reduction Part 2
So I mentioned how I wanted to reduce my boobs a few posts ago and I got the doctors verdict. I can't get the surgery subsidised by medicare unless I can prove I have back problems. Now, I cant really physically prove my back problems (which I have anyway, but I cant prove that they're breast related), so I got a referral to a plastic surgeon with a practice in Coburg and Kew. I called up to see how much it would cost for a consultation with a referral and she said it was something like $200 but I can claim back $150 through medicare. That sounds fine enough, but I don't want to go to a plastic surgeon and pay all this money just for a consultation and then find out that the work they do is crappy. Seeing as though I cant get the surgery for maybe a year or two (which is going to suck so bad), I have a lot of time to search for reputable surgeons. But I'm really struggling to find places online that will show before and after photos or at least have some honest feedback from patients they've worked on. I really wish I didn't have to wait because I'm sick of getting rashes that turn into scabs and then blood on my bras and just messy shit happening. WHY CAN'T I JUST WIN THE LOTTERY?! Ugh. Tomorrow I might go to magnation and see if they have any plastic surgery magazines or something. Or if anyone has any good surgeons they know of, let me know!
