Breast Reduction Montreal At Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic

Large, heavy breasts are usually a developmental phenomenon, which occurs in adolescence but may also occur later in life, either due to pregnancy, menopause or weight gain. This may cause the patient neck and back discomfort and may, in certain cases, severely restrict her physical activities.

The surgery is technically called a reduction mammoplasty and is done under general anesthesia, at our clinic. It usually takes approximately two hours to complete and is done as an out patient procedure. The associated discomfort is minimal. Not only do you get a reduction in volume of the breast but also a lift so that the nipple and areola are relocated to their appropriate level, and as well, a reduction of the areolar diameter.

As is the case with breast lift surgeries, the traditional technique requires three incisions called “anchor incisions” consisting in an incision around the nipple, a second vertical which goes down to the fold of the breast and a third one underneath the fold of the breast.

In certain cases, patients can benefit from the “lollipop incision” one incision around the nipple and a second vertical. This eliminates the need for the third incision under the fold of the breast, which sometimes heals poorly on account of it being in an area prone to friction.

Bruising happens occasionally and if that is the case, will usually lasts no more than two weeks. Slight swelling of the breasts might be noticeable for up to three months. We recommend a convalescence of approximately one week. Exercising can usually be resumed four weeks after the operation.

Dr. Papanastasiou has performed thousands of breast reductions in the past and will endeavor to give you the most natural-looking and esthetically pleasing breast after this surgery.

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 ☺️"
