Gynecomastia in Tunisia



Gynecomastia is triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. The cause of this decrease can be conditions that block the effects of or reduce testosterone or a condition that increases your estrogen level. Several things can upset the hormone balance, including the following.

Natural hormone changes

The hormones testosterone and estrogen control the development and maintenance of sex characteristics in both men and women. Testosterone controls male traits, such as muscle mass and body hair. Estrogen controls female traits, including the growth of breasts.

Most people think of estrogen as an exclusively female hormone, but men also produce it — though normally in small quantities. However, male estrogen levels that are too high or are out of balance with testosterone levels can cause gynecomastia.

  • Gynecomastia in infants.More than half of male infants are born with enlarged breasts due to the effects of their mother’s estrogen. Generally, the swollen breast tissue goes away within two to three weeks after birth.
  • Gynecomastia during puberty.Gynecomastia caused by hormone changes during puberty is relatively common. In most cases, the swollen breast tissue will go away without treatment within six months to two years.
  • Gynecomastia in men.The prevalence of gynecomastia peaks again between the ages of 50 and 80. At least 1 in 4 men in this age group are affected.

Street drugs and alcohol

Substances that can cause gynecomastia include:

  • Alcohol
  • Amphetamines
  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Methadone

Health conditions

Several health conditions can cause gynecomastia by affecting the normal balance of hormones. These include:

  • Any of the conditions that interfere with normal testosterone production, such as Klinefelter syndrome or pituitary insufficiency, can be associated with gynecomastia.
  • Hormone changes that occur with normal aging can cause gynecomastia, especially in men who are overweight.
  • Some tumors, such as those involving the testes, adrenal glands or pituitary gland, can produce hormones that alter the male-female hormone balance.
  • In this condition, the thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine.
  • Kidney failure.About half the people being treated with regular hemodialysis experience gynecomastia due to hormonal changes.
  • Liver failure and cirrhosis.Hormonal fluctuations related to liver problems as well as medications taken for cirrhosis are associated with gynecomastia.

Malnutrition and starvation. When your body is deprived of adequate nutrition, testosterone levels drop, but estrogen levels remain constant, causing a hormonal imbalance. Gynecomastia can also occur once normal nutrition resumes.

Breast augmentation Tunisia


Responding to a need to assert her femininity, breast augmentation gives women who have not developed enough or breast mastectomy the opportunity to make prosthesis implant. The major brands of current prostheses are very safe since they have a strong wall and filled with a cohesive gel that does not broadcast in the event of rupture. Screening mammography is not at all hampered by the prostheses.


Pathways and position of the prosthesis

There are three pathways: the hemiareolar inferior border, under breast and axillary. The choice of path is based on the diameter of the areolas, the volume of prostheses and habits of the surgeon. The axillary way deemed to be the most discreet uses endoscopy and has the disadvantage of bad bleeding control. The areolar path is very satisfactory but may sometimes become visible because of residual scar depigmentation. The subcutaneous breast offer discretion and safety of the procedure when well placed just in the future furrow.

The choice to place the implant behind the gland or behind the chest muscle is based on the volume of existing gland. When it’s sufficient to hide the circumferences of the prosthesis we will just place it behind gland. If instead the breast is too small, it is preferable to insert under the muscle. Muscle back position is more painful and requires the patient not to raise arms for a month at the risk of dislocating the prosthesis to the armpits. Moreover, with time, the fall of the glands is not accompanied by the prostheses and creates an imbalance; the prostheses remain suspended. The glandular retro position does not present these disadvantages. The size of the prosthesis must be adapted to the chest and volume of existing gland of the patient

Rhinoplasty Goals & Considerations

rhinoplasty (1)

Specific Goals

Rhinoplasty can be used to modify the shape, size, and overall appearance of the nose. In some cases, a plastic surgeon may recommend that a chin implant be inserted at the same time. This will help to balance out the facial features more completely.

Many times, rhinoplasty patients ask their surgeons to:

  • Widen or narrow their nostrils
  • Straighten their crooked noses
  • Reshape the tip of their noses
  • Alter the angle between their noses and upper lips

In most cases, the incisions used for nose reshaping cosmetic surgery can be hidden inside the nose or placed inconspicuously outside it. Minimal scarring fits in with the overall goal of improving appearance and maintaining a natural look.


Because rhinoplasty is different for each patient, the cost of rhinoplasty treatment will vary depending on a number of factors. Patients should discuss the total cost of surgery with their physicians, as well as payment and financing options.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser Depilation

Traditional methods for removing unwanted body hair include shaving, waxing, the application of depilatory cream and electrolysis. Depilation by laser is a relatively new technique. It helps not only those with normal hair growth, but also those with excessive hairiness of the body or face, a condition called hirsutism which causes considerable psychological distress.

Hirsutism affects approximately 10% of women between the ages of 18 and 35. In most cases there is no obvious cause but some patients may have a hormonal disturbance. Hirsutism may also be a feature of the menopause. Unwanted hair is a significant problem for transsexuals and transvestites, and many males with hair on their back dislike it intensely. Children with hairy moles of the face or lumbar spine area are often teased.

How does it work?

Treatment may be a little uncomfortable – it feels a little like an elastic band snapping against the skin – but some patients prefer to use local anaesthetic cream to numb the area first. Aloe vera gel may also be used during or after treatment for its cooling effect. Some lasers have a cooling system which reduces the discomfort of the treatment. After treatment, the treated area may look red and feel warm and tender. This feeling goes after a couple of hours, but in a few patients, particularly those with dark skin, blistering and crusting of the skin sometimes occurs after laser treatment. Some hairs disappear at the treatment session; others, which initially look curled up or “frazzled” may take a few days to fall out.


No more hair! Meaning you can wear the clothes you want to wear and start feeling good about yourself and your appearance. Laser hair removal can help bring out a confident new you.

The Benefits of Lymphatic Massage

lymphatic massage

What is Lymphatic Massage?

Because the lymphatic system has no pump, its functions are dependent upon muscle contractions, diaphragmatic breathing, and body movement.  It is common to develop a sluggish lymphatic flow.  Some causes of this include inactivity, consuming the wrong foods and drinks, and not drinking enough water.

Lymphatic massage is a massage technique that is designed to stimulate the lymph’s circulation in order to speed up the removal of waste from the body.  It is helpful for the nervous system as it reduces sympathetic nervous activity, allows para-sympathetic activity, stimulates the defenses of the immune system, and increases the flow and volume of the lymph fluid.  The technique involves the use of gentle, rhythmic strokes and pumping movements towards the direction of the lymph nodes on the body.

Lymphatic massage is helpful for scars, stress, cellulite, stretch marks, detoxification, chronic fatigue, weight problems, arthritis, neurological disorders, pregnancy, pain, and overall wellbeing.

Benefits of Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic MassageThe benefits of lymphatic massage include:

• improving circulation, in turn increasing the metabolic rate
• helping with weight loss
• reducing fluid retention
• eliminating toxins, thus aiding detoxification
• reducing cellulite fat in the body
• improving immunity
• helping with sinus congestion and allergies
• fibromyalgia
• hormonal imbalances

Deep Lymphatic Massage

Many degenerative problems are related to imbalances or poor functioning within the lymphatic system.  If these imbalances are not corrected, the lymphatic system is unable to properly remove waste and toxic materials.  The toxic matter then builds up in the body’s tissues, eventually leading to what we call disease.

Deep lymphatic massage is used to clear all of the lymphatic vessels through the body – the superficial, mid, and deep vessels – which have become congested through trauma.  Any time the body sustains damage, an area of congestion develops and, over time, this congestion solidifies and may hold fluid around the area, thus leading to an increase in body size and blocking the flow of some fluids.

Many conditions respond well to deep lymphatic massage, although it is especially good for people that are wishing to prevent problems in the future.  It should not be used by people that are pregnant, have epilepsy, or have appendicitis.

What to Expect During a Lymphatic Massage Session

Lymphatic massage treatments generally last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.  It is performed on a table, and the client undresses to an extent that they are comfortable with.  Sheets and blankets are used to protect modesty.  The strokes used in the massage are light and rhythmic, and the massage should not be painful.  Massage oil is generally used.  Once the massage is over, the practitioner will leave the room to allow the client to redress.   The practitioner will also give you some tips on exercises that will continue to assist in lymphatic drainage.
