Dear Aby,

Don't you have a medical aid? Most medical aids will consider paying for this procedure, due to the fact that large breasts impact on a patient's health, which brings about additional financial expenses. The important thing would be, however, that you make sure you are not overweight.

The surgeon's fee is usually very small in comparison to the hospital cost, and because of differences between hospitals, I cannot give you an amount.
