Mommy Makeover at Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic in Montreal

After pregnancy and birth, many moms undergo physical changes which can affect their body image and self-esteem. Unfortunately, diet and exercise alone are often not effective to bring back their figure to the way it used to be before giving birth. The good news is that Doctor Bill Papanastasiou has helped many new mothers regain their body shape using a variety of procedures popularly known as the mommy makeover.

Your Montreal Mommy Makeover Benefits

Using a variety of treatments Doctor Bill Papanastasiou is able to offer you the following benefits:

  • Removing most stretch marks which can be a result of pregnancies.
  • Removing excess fat from almost all areas of your body using either Smartlipo, or traditional liposuction.
  • Tightening your abdominal area with a tummy tuck.
  • Restoring sagging or drooping breasts to their former shape with a breast lift or a breast reduction.
  • Restoring your breasts to how they used to look or enhancing them using breast implants.
  • Facial Rejuvenation to give your face a more relaxed and younger appearance.

Candidates for Doctor Papanastasiou’s Mommy Makeover

It is important that before deciding on undergoing a mommy makeover, that you realise that having more children after the operation will undo all the benefits such a procedure offers you. As well, bear in mind that prior to having a mommy makeover, you should be as close to your health weight as is possible. While the mommy makeover can make you look slimmer, it is not a surgical solution to losing weight.

Doctor Papanastasiou will need to do an initial consultation with you to discuss your medical history and any medical conditions you may have that could negatively affect the outcome of the procedure. The doctor will also have a detailed discussion with you how he can improve your figure by firming up your breasts, slimming your tummy and waistline and also making other improvements you may wish to have. For over 30 years Doctor Papanastasiou has been a specialist in all areas of plastic and aesthetic surgery and your consultation with him is an ideal time to have all of your questions and concerns answered.

When can I have my Mommy Makeover?

There is no limit as to how long you can wait before undergoing your mommy makeover once you have had your last child. In fact you can undergo this procedure years later after giving birth and still obtain all of the benefits such a procedure can bring. At a minimum, Doctor Papanastasiou asks that new mothers wait at least six to eight months for their body to adjust to the physical and hormonal changes that pregnancy and giving birth can bring. The doctor also suggests that you are no longer breastfeeding for at least three months if you wish to have any breast procedures done. The doctor also understands that if you have young children and are working outside of the home, you may wish to carefully evaluate if these circumstances will have a negative impact on your recovery after surgery.

Doctor Papanastasiou’s Mommy Makeover Procedures

Your treatment options include any or all of the following:

Breast Lift

A breast lift will raise your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support your new breast contour. This procedure is also known as a Mastopexy

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation uses breast implants to increase the fullness and improve the symmetry of your breasts. It may also be used to restore your breast volume that is lost after pregnancy. This procedure is also known as an Augmentation Mammoplasty.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery will remove excess fat and skin from your abdominal area. As well, in almost all cases, this procedure will restore weakened or separated muscles, thereby creating an abdominal profile for you that is smoother and firmer. This procedure is also known as an abdominoplasty.

Liposuction

Liposuction surgery will break up the fat in your body and then remove it. The areas where liposuction is most commonly performed is your abdomen, hips, buttocks, neck and chin, upper arms, thighs and back. Liposuction is also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture or Smartlipo.

Injectable Facial Rejuvenation Treatments

Botox is a non-surgical injection that causes your facial and forehead wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox injections can be given to certain areas, such as your squint lines (also known as crow’s feet) and the frown lines in the glabella (area between the eyebrows) as well as the forehead itself.

Injections using fillers are used to fill depressed wrinkles and make them even with the skin surface, thereby rendering your wrinkles less visible. Most fillers in use today are made of hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Restylane, etc), which is derived from a natural substance we all have in our skin. These fillers are eventually eliminated by the body. The average duration is from nine to twelve months.

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 ☺️"
