|ChirurgiePro : YOUR COSMETIC SURGERY IN TUNISIA PERFORMED BY THE BEST SURGEONS, SAFELY.|
For whom ?
For all men and women wishing to secure a better balance and harmony at their face. Still it is worth noting that a profiloplasty is counter-indicated for patients who are still in a stage of growth and development.
The profiloplasty is part of plastic surgery of the face profile in its totality. It pursues the vocation of harmonizing all of the constituent parts of a personís face through corrections carried out on certain areas.
The forehead, the nose, the lips and the chin depend on very precise proportion relationships. A face examination allows you to appreciate in the best possible way the balance of the different structures vis-ŗ-vis each other and an organic harmony as well.
Thus, a rhinoplasty removing a hump may turn out to be insufficient if a very receding chin is not in a similar way corrected.
Similarly, a nose may not seem slightly smaller if the chin is too salient.
The correction of the chin may equally be prescribed according to whether it is a progeny (chin thrust forward) or a re-trogeny (chin receding).
The marked cheekbones are equally put under examination, as they also contribute to that architecture of the face.
Therefore, following any consultation concerning cosmetic surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty), your maxilla-facial surgeon may be in a position to suggest a rhinoplasty together with a plastic chin surgery (genioplasty): It is the profiloplasty.
Before the operation
Your medical check-ups
Between one week and one month prior to your operation, you must make an appointment with a medical tests laboratory in order to undergo a full pre-surgical check-up. A specialized ophthalmological examination will be required as a complement so as to identify a possible ocular pathology. The tests results must be sent to us (by fax, or by e-mail) so that they can be seen and read by our anesthetist doctor.
Depending on the test results, other examinations may be required. If you are unable to carry out your examinations before your departure to Tunisia, there is always a possibility to do that on the spot, the day before the operation. It must be known that if there is a contra-indication to your operation, the anesthetist doctor has the right to put off or cancel the operation. No medication containing aspirin should be taken at least 10 days before the operation. You must mention any type of medication you may have taken. It is essential that you refrain from eating, drinking, and smoking for 8 hours before the operation.
Regarding your luggage, you must bring sunglasses, one or two scarves (to cover the bruises), a hat or cap, and full sun block cream.
Getting ready for the operation
You will be taken to your clinic the night of the operation, the time to get settled in your room, to take a shower if needed and to meet with the medical team: your surgeon, the anesthetist doctor, and all the health care staff. The operation takes place the following morning. Very often, the night before the operation, the nurses will give you a kind of pre-medication in the form of a light tranquilizer to make sure that slightly anxious patients to face the operation with more fortitude.
Type of anesthesia
Prophiloplasty is carried out under full anesthesia.
Duration of the hospital stay
Duration of your total stay in Tunisia
6 nights / 7 days.
Profiloplasty will consist in undertaking a surgical operation that combines a genioplasty and a rhinoplasty. To fully come to grip with each type of operation practiced during a profiloplasty, we would recommend that you follow the links and read the chapters devoted to these surgical operations.
At times the surgeon may deem necessary to carry out a reshaping of the cheekbones as well. It is in most cases a prosthetics transplant in silicon which is applied orally/by mouth (no visible or apparent scars). The size, the shape and the curving of the transplant are defined in advance, and this implant which is affixed to the bone relief (zigomatiques et malaire???) will lead to the desired projection.
Duration of the surgical operation
The duration of profiloplasty surgery varies depending to each case but on average it will take 2 hours.
After the operation
After the operation, medical observation will be first in the waking room, then in your room. Profiloplasty generally causes very little pain. A bandage with iced compresses will be applied for a few hours, preventing somehow edema development of the eyelids. Compresses are changed on a frequent basis for the first 24 hours.
Among the surgical aftereffects, there is surely a facial edema that appears within the 48 hours following the operation and will remain for about 8 days. They diminish in intensity progressively as a result of the appropriate treatment.
It is then and only then that a return to normal professional activity is envisaged. Sports activity is only possible a month after the operation.
Like any surgical operation, a few rare complications may occur such as: infection, hematoma, or anesthetic complication.
There is no need for interrupting the work: the recovery stay spent in Tunisia following the operation is very beneficial and enables most of our patients to resume their professional activities as soon as they return home.
The fees for a profiloplasty vary.
They start at 2700 euros.
