Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) At Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic In Montreal

The most frequent causes of loose abdominal skin and muscles include pregnancy and, as well, exaggerated weight fluctuations. Due to either of these two events, not only is there an accumulation of a fatty layer beneath the skin but also a looseness of the abdominal muscles and the skin.

Tummy tuck surgery consists of liposculpture of the abdominal fat, followed by tightening of the abdominal muscles and reshaping and tightening of the abdominal skin. Lastly, the umbilicus is also reconstructed, resulting in a natural-looking, flat abdomen.

The abdominoplasty is performed at our clinic, under general or spinal anesthesia and takes approximately two hours to complete. It requires an overnight stay at our clinic and, for these patients, we make all necessary arrangements for their return home the next morning.

You will be instructed not to do any heavy lifting or strenuous activities for one month. Discomfort is categorized as mild to moderate. Many patients mention that the pain is similar to that of a cesearian. Mild swelling may persist for up to three months.

We also provide you with a compressive garment that needs to be worn for 4 weeks as well as silicone gel to be applied to all incisions in order to promote the best possibly healing.

V.W. Papanastasiou, MD, CM, MSc, FRCSC

I had a successful breast surgery on May 24th 2016. Through the information sessions to the surgery and post surgery every single staff I dealt with was professional nice and patient. Dr. Papanastasiou is a great surgeon, professional, patient with a beautiful smile. I wish I had the surgery long time ago.....Big thank to Dr. Papanastasiou, God bless you Doctor!! Thank you so much Francoise, Stephanie, Michele and the young ladies at the reception and everyone who was in the surgery room. A big hug and thanks to NANCY the wonderful Nurse who took care of me in the recovery room, this great lady put her heart in what she does!!!! God bless you all.

"I recently had a breast lift and implants put in by Dr. P and his team. The results are wonderful, very natural and I love them. His team was fantastic, very professional and kind. I would definitely recommend Dr P and his clinic!"

"I recommend Dr. Papanastasiou, he is very kind and professional and best technology I've seen after going to loose my money to get evaluations with other doctors I came back. I had breast augmentation and asked for a natural look and that' s exactly what I got! From A to Z my experience was excellent! I also did lipo and I barely got bruises and no pain, he has magic hands :-)"

"About 4 weeks ago I had lower eye surgery for bags and wrinkles. I was initially a little nervous about the procedure but after speaking with him he made me feel at ease and I felt this was the right decision for me. The procedure took about 1 hour and I was back at work 1 week later with just some minor bruising on my cheeks. I was very impressed with Dr. Papanastasiou. He was very professional and I am extremely satisfied with the results. After the procedure he also called me that night to see how I was doing. I was extremely impressed. I would have no problem seeing him again for any procedure and would easily recommend him. Thank you again Dr. Papanastasiou"

"Two years ago I decided to have breast augmentation and a full rhinoplasty. I went to see Dr. Papanastasiou and felt immediately comfortable with him and his staff and confident that he was the best doctor to do the work. It turns out that I needed a revision (to correct minor issues) for both surgeries (breasts and nose) and I was met with understanding and openness. Dr. Papanastasiou and his staff were very accommodating and compassionate! There were no hassles or arguments regarding the need for the revisions and this was very reassuring! I'm extremely pleased with the results of both surgeries and I'm grateful to have been in Dr. Papanastasiou's care ☺️"
