Breast lift Tunisia: Surgery for breast ptosis to lift the chest

Breast lift Tunisia: what is a breast lift?

The breast lift (Mastopexy) also called breast lift Tunisia is a cosmetic surgery to lift the chest.  This surgical procedure can help to improve the image and self-confidence of the patient. It involves removing excess skin from the breasts and tightening the surrounding tissue. This surgery aims to treat breast ptosis, reshape and enhance the breasts.

Some women choose to have a breast lift to address sagging breasts or areolas that point downward. This sagging is the result of a natural change that occurs with age and causes the breasts to lose their elasticity and firmness. This loss of skin elasticity can also result from frequent weight changes or pregnancy.

It should be noted that a breast lift is generally performed without a prosthesis, because its primary function is not to change the size of the breasts, but to lift them. However, it can be combined with a breast augmentation or breast reduction, if the patient wishes.

Breast lift Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in a breast lift is to make an appointment with the surgeon for a pre-operative check-up. A mammogram and a breast ultrasound will also be performed. It is important to note that the breast lift requires a complete cessation of smoking one month before the procedure, then 15 days after the procedure (until healing).

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

Procedure of the breast lift in Tunisia

The breast lift is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure lasts between 1h30 and 3h and requires 1 or 2 days of hospitalization.
The breast lift can be performed using various techniques. The appropriate technique will be determined by the surgeon according to the volume and shape of the breasts, the size and position of the areolas, the quality of the skin and the extent of the breast ptosis.

Depending on the extent of breast ptosis, the incisions can take different forms.

In the case of mild to moderate breast ptosis, the incisions will be made around the areola and vertically from the areola extending to the folds of the breast.

In the case of significant breast ptosis, the incisions will be as in the case of low and medium breast ptosis, but with a third horizontal incision in the fold under the breast.

The surgeon then proceeds to the breast enhancement. The excess skin is removed and the breast takes on a firmer and more sustained appearance. The nipples and areola are repositioned upwards. The skin around the areolas is finally stretched to straighten the breast.

The breast lift is generally not painful. In case of pain, simple analgesics are sufficient to alleviate it. There is usually an appearance of edema (swelling) and bruising. The patient will have difficulty lifting her arms for the first few days.

The bandage put in place at the end of the breast lift procedure will be removed only after one to two days. It will be replaced by a lighter, more flexible bandage. A support bra must be worn day and night for one month.

It is recommended to take 7 to 10 days off work. Sports activities can be resumed after one or two months.

It is important to note that the operation does not alter the sensitivity or the naturalness of the breasts, which continue to react to hormonal changes or weight variations.

Concerning anesthesia: before any breast lift operation, the anesthesiologist is able to inform the patient of the risks associated with anesthesia to which the body may react in an unexpected and difficult to control manner. The risks of a breast lift in Tunisia are however low. Thanks to the skills of experienced anesthesiologists in the practice of cosmetic surgery, it is important to keep in mind that over the past two decades, the products, techniques and procedures used in anesthesia have really progressed.

Concerning the surgical act: the risks of a breast lift in Tunisia are isolated cases (but not null) if the choice of a plastic surgeon is made carefully and seriously according to his or her competence to perform such an operation.

Complications following breast ptosis surgery are possible. But they remain low thanks to the careful and attentive choice of a competent plastic surgeon. Most breast lift operations in Tunisia go smoothly and their results fully delight the patients.
