Breast reduction at Obesity & Aesthetic Surgery in Tunisia

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce the excessive volume of the breast. It is more precisely a question of reducing the size of the breasts while acting on the glandular tissue of the breast and its skin envelope.

For who?

Women often use breast reduction to reduce or even eliminate physical pain caused by excessive breast size or for aesthetic reasons. More specifically, breast reduction is a solution for women who suffer from breast enlargement, which can often be the cause of lower back and back pain.

The intervention

An ultrasound mammography is systematic before the intervention.

The operation takes place in the operating room with general anesthesia.

The surgeon will reduce the size of the breasts by lifting the areola and the nipple.

The scar is often inverted vertical T under the breast furrow.

The scars are hidden by the underwear and diminish over time after 6 months.

Some techniques respect the milk ducts, hence the possibility of breastfeeding later.

Length of stay

The length of stay is 5 days.

Post-operative suites

  • The nipple may lose sensitivity temporarily.
  • The bruises disappear in less than 15 days.
  • Wearing a compression bra for one month is compulsory
  • Sport is allowed after one month.

Is there a risk of complications?

Following any type of surgery, the risk of complications is always present and this also applies to the breast reduction procedure. But other complications specific to this intervention can occur such as poor healing, the risk of infection, hematoma or necrosis.

However, these complications are very rare and can still be limited if the intervention is performed by surgeons with extensive experience in the field such as “Obesity & Aesthetic Surgery” surgeons.
