The objective of a breast augmentation is to give or restore volume to the breasts and thus increase the size of the breasts.
To do this, a prosthesis (a silicone envelope enclosing gel or saline solution) is inserted under the breast muscle in most cases.
Breast augmentation can also be performed by fat injection: breast lipofilling.
Breast augmentation Breast augmentation Tunisia, the Center Clinic
Breast augmentation is becoming more and more frequent throughout the world especially in Tunisia these days. If you feel that your breasts need improvement, then you should try breast augmentation and breast implant surgery. Now, when we say this, three questions come to mind: Do I need it? Is it safe? How much will it cost?
There are many criteria to consider!
The Center Clinic is constantly evolving in the field of aesthetic medicine. The clinic offers services in cosmetic surgery including breast surgery.
Increasing the size of your breasts with breast implants
The patient discusses with an esthetic surgeon about her preferences for the size, feel and appearance of your breasts. The surgeon will describe specific types of implants - smooth or textured, round or teardrop-shaped, saline or silicone - as well as options for surgical techniques.
How do I choose breast implants for breast augmentation?
The choice of breast augmentation with breast implants includes: implant type, size and profile, implant shape, and incision location.
Several forms of prosthesis are available (round, anatomical, pear-shaped ...) depending on the morphology of the patient and the need expressed (give curvature, correct a ptosis, ...). A wide variety of sizes is available at the Clinic.
They reproduce a natural shape of the breast, in the shape of a drop or pear, perfectly adapted for rather thin patients.
Frequently used, round prostheses give a rounder, less natural result, but have the advantage of not altering the shape of the breast when rotated.
To insert the breast implant, your surgeon will make a single cut (incision) in one of the three locations:
- In the crease under your breast (inframammary)
- Under your arm (axillary)
- Around your nipple (periareolar)
After making an incision, the surgeon will separate your breast tissue from the muscles and connective tissue of your chest. This creates a pocket behind or in front of the outermost muscle of the chest wall (pectoral muscle). The surgeon will insert the implant into this pocket and center it behind your nipple.
Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with sterile salt water once they are in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel.
Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision - usually with stitches (sutures) - and bandage it with skin adhesive and surgical tape.
By carefully selecting the right surgical plan for you, your breast augmentation should provide you with beautiful, natural results for many years to come. When breast augmentation is combined with a breast lift, the patient can benefit from a younger, more youthful positioning of the breasts in addition to the improved size.
During your breast augmentation recovery, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze bandages and an elastic bandage or bra that will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
Initially, the patient may feel pain during movement, and in some cases a bra may be prescribed by the surgeon.
Pain and swelling are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is also possible. Expect that scars will fade over time but will not disappear completely.
While you are healing, it may be helpful to wear a compression bandage or sports bra for additional support and positioning of the breast implants. Your surgeon may also prescribe pain medication.
The appearance of the scar is usually a little red for a month to two months, then it gradually becomes a small white line almost invisible. The final result is obtained in 3 to 6 months.
Follow your surgeon's instructions regarding the return to regular physical activity. If you do not have a physically demanding job, you may be able to return to work in a few weeks. Avoid strenuous activities - anything that could increase your pulse or blood pressure - for at least two weeks. As you heal, keep in mind that your breasts will be sensitive to physical contact or discordant movements.
Breast lipofilling is a cosmetic surgery procedure that consists of a transfer of fat cells from the patient's body to fill or increase a lack of volume in the breasts. Breast lipofilling is a technique of aesthetic breast surgery that provides a long-lasting and natural result with almost invisible scars.
Breast augmentation by lipofilling has three advantages:
- The result is long-lasting and natural as the patient's own cells are involved.
- The scars involved in the procedure are almost invisible (2 mm under the breast or on the side of the breast).
- It allows to a certain extent to correct moderate breast ptosis (sagging breasts).
The cost of breast augmentation in Tunisia is estimated at 2000 €. This is the price of the installation of the breast prosthesis. It is an all-inclusive package thanks to which, the patient covers the costs of his operation and his stay at the clinic.
This price of breast augmentation Tunisia may include: anesthesia costs, costs of surgical facilities, medical tests, post-operative clothing, drug prescriptions and surgeon's fees.
