Facelift Surgery At Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic In Montreal

Our understanding of facial anatomy and of the aging process has taught us that it is not merely the skin, which sags with time but rather many of the underlying structures as well.

Therefore, a properly performed facelift today is not merely a lift of the skin alone but of the underlying muscles and fatty tissues as well. Therefore, the final result is one of a refreshed, younger appearance and one, which due to the nature of this type of facelift, should last much longer than the previous techniques.

There are also many types of facelifts available from a simple neck lift to the full (facial) facelift. Dr. Papanastasiou can explain all your options at the time of your consultation.

The surgery is performed at our surgical clinic, under general anesthesia and can sometimes require an overnight stay. For our overnight patients we offer a complimentary car service the next morning.

There is swelling, which is apparent for approximately two weeks but there is very little pain. The patient can usually return to their normal activities at that time. Physical activity and exercises need to be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks.

As well, there is usually a gradual decrease of facial volume with age and volumization with either synthetic fillers or the patient’s own fat can make a significant difference. This will be discussed further in our section on non surgical solutions.

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 ☺️"
