Reasons to choose to have a breast reduction in Tunisia

Women with very large breasts often experience physical discomfort in the form of back and neck pain. Bra straps supporting large breasts can dig into the shoulders causing bruising and indentation. Aside from physical pain, women with large breasts often feel extremely self-conscious.

Women who have experienced abnormally excessive and rapid breast growth have what is called breast enlargement. The enlargement usually affects both breasts and occurs either at puberty or with age, successive pregnancies or weight gain. This hypertrophy is usually associated with a sagging of the breasts called breast ptosis.

Women opt for breast reduction surgery in Tunisia for medical and aesthetic reasons.

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

*Very large breasts that cause physical problems, including pain in the shoulders, back and neck.
*Heavy, pendulous breasts with downward-pointing nipples.
*A large breast that interferes with routine activities and your overall lifestyle.
*One breast is larger than the other (requiring correction of breast asymmetry).
*Your shoulders show marks from bra straps.
*The weight of your breasts disturbs your sleep.

Are the scars from the breast reduction visible?

Scars are an inevitable part of any invasive surgery. Your specialized plastic surgeon will strive to minimize scarring and keep your scars as inconspicuous as possible by locating the incisions in easily hidden areas. This way, the scars will be along the natural lines of the skin and folds. Scars can fade over time and become barely noticeable. 

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

The first step before the operation of breast reduction Tunisia is the establishment of a pre-operative assessment and a radiological assessment of the breast (mammography, breast ultrasound). The plastic surgeon asks you questions about your general health. He will also tell you about the risks, the recovery time, the appearance of the scar and the cost of this surgical procedure.

It should be noted that in order to ensure the success of the breast reduction surgery, the discontinuation of any oral contraceptives may be required.

How does a breast reduction operation in Tunisia work?

The operation of breast reduction Tunisia is done under general anesthesia. It lasts between 2 and 4 hours and requires 1 to 3 days of hospitalization. This operation is less painful than a breast augmentation. The surgeon begins by making incisions around the areolas. The length of the incision varies according to the size of the breasts. The surgeon then removes excess breast gland tissue, fat and skin to reduce the volume and size of each breast. Finally, the surgeon reshapes the breast and repositions the nipple and areola. The nipple and areola usually remain attached to the breast throughout the procedure, except in the case of extremely large breasts, in which case they are removed and regrafted in a higher position.

Once the incisions have been sewn back together, a bra-like dressing is put in place to maintain and protect the breasts.

It should be noted that the surgeon will do his or her best to achieve symmetry between the breasts, but it is possible that the size and shape of the breasts may vary. The healing of the breast reduction is never complete, which means that the scars will fade over time but will never disappear completely. A loss of sensation in the nipples after a breast reduction surgery can be expected for a few months. Generally, this loss is temporary and will fade over the weeks.

  • *The pain after breast reduction is usually bearable and only requires painkillers.
    *Swelling (edema) and bruising usually appear on the breasts. Discomfort when raising the arms is experienced during the first few days.
    *The first bandage is removed after 24 to 48 hours. It is then replaced by a lighter dressing. The dressing should be changed regularly until the healing is complete*.
    *A post-operative support bra is also put in place. Wearing this bra (day and night) is recommended during the first month*.
    *It is recommended that you take 8 to 21 days off work* and that you resume sports activities only after one to two months*.

– 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 body 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.

– As far as the surgical procedure is concerned: by choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained in this type of operation, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.

However, despite their low frequency, you must be informed of possible complications:

– *Thrombo-embolic accidents (phlebitis, pulmonary embolism), although globally very rare after this type of procedure, are among the most dreaded. Rigorous preventive measures should minimize the incidence of thromboembolic events: wearing anti-thrombosis stockings, early lifting, and possibly anti-coagulant treatment.
– The occurrence of an infection requires antibiotic treatment and sometimes surgical drainage.
– A hematoma may require evacuation.
– Delayed healing can sometimes be observed, which lengthens the postoperative period.
– Necrosis of the skin, gland, or areola, rarely observed with modern techniques, may be responsible for delayed healing (the risk is greatly increased by smoking intoxication, and in cases of gigantomastia or very large hypertrophies).
– Alterations in sensitivity, particularly of the nipple, may sometimes persist, even though sensitivity usually returns to normal within 6 to 18 months.
