Although breast implant is ultimately a foreign body, it still remains the most appropriate technique for a very attractive and very natural result.

Suspicion on clinical examination or mammography echo of the presence of breast cancer, it formally indicates an aesthetic breast surgery whatsoever.

The intervention


Breast augmentation is the development in the breast of breast implants (breast prostheses) to increase the volume.

When it’s properly specified and well done, this procedure gives perfect results and patients are very happy.

An ultrasound mammography is routinely requested before the intervention, thus ensuring the integrity of the breast.


Breast augmentation in Tunisia is possible with dentures that are either inflatable with saline,, or pre filled with the latter , which are the most used, France has authorized them use since 2002.

Silicone gel has a fat and malleable consistency allowing almost normal and natural palpation of the breast after surgery.

The manufacture of these implants follows strict rules to ensure a foolproof seal and biomedical gel.

Wall or envelope of these prostheses is either smooth or textured. few years ago, have appeared on the market, prostheses whose shape embrases the shape of breast, they are called natural or anatomical providing a more natural result.


Breast augmentation requires an incision to insert the implant, for that: 4 possibilities scar to place the prosthesis:

- Peri lower areal (lower arc of the areola) - Trans-areolar (in the areola) - Fold in mammair - Axillary (in the armpit).

The prosthesis is placed in front of or behind the pectoral muscle, according to the appearance and the volume of the breast surgery.

The most important is that the prosthesis is not directly placed under the skin, it will be guessed from the look and feel.

The breast examination preoperatively, its palpation, measuring its base, its level of implementation, listening to the patient, allow you to choose the right breast prosthesis.

Using also "sizers" external, allows to better guide the patient's choice.

Softwares are currently sold for the exact calculation of the volume of the prosthesis according to the desired result.


The round implants make the breast rather more "lighter", they fill the upper part of the breast : cleavage.

Anatomic implants are shaped like half a pear, they are indicated in patients with meager small hypoplastic breasts.

For these patients an anatomic prosthesis is an excellent choice, breast shape obtained after surgery, will almost be the same as the prosthesis since the mammary gland is almost nonexistent.


Is performed under general anesthesia, the average duration is 45 minutes.

Strict aseptic technique is required to prevent infections, perfect haemostasis is performed to avoid postoperative bleeding and bruising.

The establishment of aspiratifs suction drains after surgery is not the rule, many surgeons do not put it.

2 / infection: is manifested by fever and throbbing from the 3rd postoperative day. The prosthesis infection requires removal of both implants.

3 / peri prosthetic shell: is a remote complication related to fibrosis around the implant hardening the breast and may even distort it. The location of the implant behind the muscle decreases the constitution of the shell.
