Correction of Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction) At Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic In Montreal

Gynecomastia is a condition whereby the male breast enlarges either due to an increase in the fat of the breast or the glandular tissue. This is usually a benign condition and quite often develops during adolescence as the effect of the hormones causes the breasts to enlarge. It may sometimes be seen in competitive weight lifters who are taking anabolic steroids.

This problem is quite common amongst men and this surgery is the most popular for our male patients. It can cause embarrassment and patients are very self-conscious which can negatively impact their enjoyment of life.

Gynecomastia surgery can now be performed using the revolutionary technique of Smartlipo™ which utilizes a laser to dissolve the fat before suctioning it out. This same laser is then used to tighten the skin and prevent any skin laxity. This allows for a satisfactory reduction and re-contouring of the breasts without any resultant scars. In cases where the breast tissue is too thick and glandular and cannot be suctioned entirely, we may have to make a small incision on the lower part of the areola in order to directly excise the remaining tissue.

This operation is done under general anesthesia at our clinic in Montreal, usually takes 1½ hours and is performed as an out-patient procedure. There usually is minimal discomfort post-operatively but bruising may persist for several weeks. Swelling might be noticeable for two to three months. You would need to avoid any heavy lifting for at least the first four weeks.

The satisfaction rate amongst our male patients is quite high.

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 ☺️"
