Breast lift

The main goal of patients requesting a breast uplift in Tunisia is to restore the youthful position and shape of the breasts. Women’s breasts always change during a lifetime, the effects of gravity become more and more obvious with time and the breasts end up sagging. Other events of woman’s life such as pregnancy, breast feeding and weight fluctuations can cause breast sagging, also referred to as ‘breast ptosis’. In order to restore the previous position and / or shape of the breasts, skin excess is removed through incisions around the areola and along the inframammary fold (under breast). The extent of these incisions will depend on the severity of the ptosis.

Breast reduction

The primary goal of breast reduction patients is to reduce the size of their breasts. Overdevelopment of the breast can cause many issues such as embarrassment in public, difficulties finding bras that fit and exercising. Back and shoulder pains are also frequent with overdeveloped breasts, and so is breast sagging. Breast reduction surgery can reduce the size excessively large breasts to alleviate such symptoms, but it can also correct their position within the chest. The removal of excess tissue allows the breasts to be lifted as well during the procedure.

The choice between breast reduction and breast lift is a fairly simple one to make : if you are satisfied with the size of your breasts, breast lift is most likely the treatment you’re looking for.
