What is breast reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction in Tunisia recreates the shape and contour of a breast after a mastectomy or the removal of a breast due to another disease or condition. It can also be used to increase or decrease the size of your breasts for medical or aesthetic reasons.

To achieve natural-looking breasts, more than one surgical procedure is usually required for breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction can include the addition of a nipple and tattooing to define the areola, the dark area around the nipple.

In addition, if you wish, surgeons sometimes perform an operation on the opposite breast to create a better, more natural-looking match.

Breast reconstruction in Tunisia is a surgical procedure designed to reconstruct the contour of a woman’s breast after it has been surgically removed (partial or complete mastectomy) due to cancer or other diseases. The aim of breast reconstruction is to achieve symmetry and a natural-looking breast.

Immediate reconstruction at the time of the mastectomy is preferred, but each patient is treated individually in coordination with her general surgeon and oncologist. This procedure helps patients to:

  • Maintain the balance of their breasts (size and symmetry)-.
  • Regain their self-confidence.
  • Avoid using an external prosthesis.

The plastic and reconstructive surgery centre offers complete surgical procedures for breast reconstruction. Experienced surgeons use cutting-edge technology and world-class surgical techniques.

Skin expansion and implant insertion

A commonly used technique for breast reconstruction is to expand the skin under the breast removal site. Surgeons insert an expansion balloon and a tiny valve mechanism under the skin and pectoral muscle. Through the tiny valve, a salt water solution is used to fill the balloon over a period of weeks or months to give the breast its new shape. Once the breast has reached the appropriate size and shape, a permanent breast implant is inserted.

Tissue flap surgery

Another common breast reconstruction technique is tissue flap reconstruction. Once the appropriate implant is in place, surgeons use a flap of tissue taken from the patient’s back, stomach, hip or buttock to reconstruct the breast.

  • The TRAM flap is a procedure that involves removing additional tissue, skin and muscle from the lower abdomen to create a breast shape.
  • A latissimus dorsi flap is used to remove muscle and skin from the patient’s back when additional tissue is required.
  • A DIEP flap procedure involves removing fat and skin from the same area as the tram flap (excluding the muscle) to form the breast mound.
  • The gluteal free flap is a procedure that involves taking tissue from the gluteal part of the buttock to create the shape of the breast.

After surgery

After the operation, patients are likely to experience fatigue, some pain and discomfort. Other possible complications include bleeding, excess scar tissue, fatigue and infection.

Surgeons prescribe medication or use other methods to resolve these problems. Surgeons may also recommend additional surgical procedures to reconstruct the nipple and areola.
