Breast implant replacement surgery in Tunisia

Breast implant replacement Tunisia : what is breast prosthesis replacement in Tunisia ?

Breast prosthesis change concerns women who already have breast implants and wish to replace them with new ones.

This intervention is generally carried out if there is rupture or wear of the prostheses. It can also be done if the patient wishes to change the volume (to increase the size of the breasts generally) or the shape (to change from round to anatomical prostheses, or vice versa).

Breast prostheses have a limited lifespan. This duration is 12 to 15 years for silicone prostheses and 8 years for saline prostheses. Replacing breast forms is therefore a normal step after a certain period of time. However, it is not obligatory and depends primarily on the patient’s wishes (except in the case of major complications where a change of breast prosthesis becomes necessary).

Change breast prosthesis Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in the breast implant replacement procedure is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon asks you questions about your general health. He also establishes a morphological examination of the breasts and discusses with you your expectations (if you want to put breast implants or not) in order to advise you. If you wish to have new implants placed, he will decide with you on the type and position of these implants.

The surgeon must also tell you about the risks, the recovery time and the cost of the operation.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

How is the replacement of breast implants in Tunisia?

The breast implant replacement procedure is performed under general anesthesia. It lasts about 1 hour and rarely requires an overnight stay in the hospital. The procedure is usually done following the same incision as the first implant.

In the case of a rupture of the breast implant wall, the surgeon begins by cleaning the implant cavity before proceeding with the placement of the new implants.

In the case of capsular retraction, the peri-prosthetic capsule is removed before proceeding with the placement of the new breast prosthesis.

Following the replacement of the breast prostheses, slight pain may be felt during the first few days. A recovery period of one week to 10 days is necessary, after which you can resume a normal life. However, it is recommended that you do not resume physical activities until after a month or two.

Hot baths are not recommended during the first few days, but you can take showers the day after the operation. A plastic bandage will be put in place to maintain and protect the breasts. A support bra must be worn day and night for 6 weeks.

The result is generally visible as soon as the compresses are removed, with an improvement expected within three to six months following the procedure.

As far as anesthesia is concerned, during the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the risks of anesthesia.

It is important to know that anesthesia induces reactions in the organism that are sometimes unpredictable and more or less easy to control: the fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.
It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned, by choosing a qualified and competent plastic surgeon, trained in this type of procedure, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.
Fortunately, real complications are rare following a breast implant replacement procedure performed according to the rules. In practice, the vast majority of operations are carried out without any problems and patients are fully satisfied with their results.
