Breast Reduction Surgery is NOT COSMETIC

Recent news

Submission of Petition to Council of Medical Schemes

Breast Reduction Support South Africa has submitted a complaint regarding the categorisation of breast reduction surgery purely as cosmetic surgery to the Council of Medical Schemes.  This has yielded an acknowledgement of the submission and has gained a lot of support from more medical surgeons. We were approached by several surgeons who want to back this up so that we hopefully get to lobby the council to make this a PMB.  Change.org has been supporting our work and is working on a digital social media campaign that involves story telling. They are looking to interview a womxn who has been affected by this - if you are based in Gauteng and are willing to share your story, please contact Karabo Mokgonyana (the Lead Campaigner for this movement) on kmokgonyana@change.org). This involves videography (we can hide your face if need be) or sharing your story in writing.
