Breast reduction Tunisia

breast reduction Tunisia is generally performed when the breast size is too large or disproportionate. Part of the gland and the fat are removed to reduce the volume and weight of the breasts, while keeping them as natural as possible. As the contents of the mammary gland have been reduced, the skin envelope will be readjusted, resulting in a lift and repositioning of the areola and nipple in the optimal location.

General information on breast reduction Tunisia

What to know about breast reduction

The cosmetic surgery that we perform aims to improve, thanks to a better harmony of shapes, your well-being taking into account your size, your proportions, your physiognomy, etc ...

Factors such as health, age, tissue quality and morphology will place certain constraints on resources and results.

Aesthetically, it takes several months to achieve the final result. The scars gradually fade, paler and softer over the next six to twelve months.

Wearing a bra around the clock will help with the end result.

The 1st consultation with our surgeons

It allows you to assess your condition by carefully examining the size and shape of the breasts, the quality of the skin and the location of the nipples and areolas.

This is also when we can, if a reduction is indicated, explain the surgery best suited to your situation and answer all your questions.

The right candidates for breast reduction

  • Breasts that are too big and out of proportion to your body.
  • Heavy, hanging breasts with nipples and areolas that are too low.
  • Significant asymmetry (one breast larger than the other).
  • Pain caused by the weight of your breasts, back, neck or shoulder.
  • Irritation of the skin under your breasts.
  • Indentations on your shoulders by tight straps (grooving).
  • Your physical activity is limited due to the size and weight of your breasts.
  • personal self-dissatisfaction with the size of your breasts.

The surgery

A proven technique chosen according to your personal situation

The surgery usually lasts almost two hours, which excludes the pre and postoperative time.

It is performed under general anesthesia, in a recognized surgical setting that complies with the best current standards. The anesthesia will be supervised by a specialist in anesthesiology.

The surgical method involves three incisions: one around the areola, the second vertically from the areola to the crease below the breast, and the third that follows the natural curve of that crease.

Once the excess skin is removed, the nipple and areola will come back up and the skin that was above the nipple before the surgery will be pulled down; this will give the breasts their new shape.

A suction drain will be placed in each operated breast to prevent the accumulation of blood or serum after the operation, as well as a compression bra which has the same role in addition to stabilizing the tissues for scar healing optimal.

How is it going?

Several locations of incisions and prostheses are possible but the choice must be adapted and personalized.

Types of incisions:

Since a certain amount of skin is removed, a breast reduction necessarily involves a scar. Most often the scar takes the form of an "I" with two components (photos 1 and 2) or an "inverted T" with three components:

  • A peri-areolar scar: located around the edge of the areola, between brown skin and white skin). It is this scar that helps lift and reduce the areola.
  • A vertical scar: between the lower pole of the areola and the inframammary fold.
  • A horizontal scar: hidden in the inframammary fold. The length of this scar depends on the extent of the hypertrophy and the associated ptosis.

In the majority of cases, our surgeons use vertical scar techniques without horizontal scars or, in the case of significant hypertrophies, short horizontal scars completely camouflaged under the breast.

After the surgery

Follow-up visits throughout your recovery

The type of surgery and the risk of complications determine the length of your stay at El Yosr International Clinic. In the case of breast reduction, you will be able to go home the same day after spending some time in a recovery room. This type of stay is commonly called day surgery.

Following the surgery, a follow-up visit will be scheduled five to ten days after your surgery. During this visit, the plastic surgeon will fix the frequency of the next visits.

Recovery can take four to six weeks. It will be necessary to avoid doing certain activities. It will be necessary to avoid making sudden movements and to avoid efforts by raising the arms. You should avoid raising your elbows higher than your shoulders. Superficial bruising (bruising) is normal and disappears after two to three weeks and possible nipple numbness is temporary but can sometimes last a few months.

It is impossible to predict the final results of this surgery, since it depends on several factors such as weight loss / gain or normal tissue relaxation, in pregnancy, for example.

Possible complications

Although at El Yosr International Clinic the hygiene and safety conditions are very strict and our plastic surgeons are highly qualified and experienced, each surgery carries (minimal) risks and can potentially lead to rare but possible complications.

breast reduction is no exception to this rule. Our surgeons discuss with the patient during the consultation before surgery the main risks and the methods of their treatment if necessary.
