Breast Lift At Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic In Montreal

A sagging breast can be a great source of insecurity for a woman. The solution to this problem is called a mastopexy (breast lift). The most common causes for sagging breasts are breastfeeding, gravity and fluctuating weight.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia at our clinic. It takes approximately two hours and is done as an out-patient procedure. The discomfort experienced with this type of surgery is usually categorized as mild.

In carrying out a mastopexy, Dr. Papanastasiou will not only raise the nipple and areola to their proper locations but he will also tighten your breast and re-shape it to give it a natural, esthetic appearance.  In certain cases, when there is also a lack of adequate breast tissue, he can also perform a breast augmentation by inserting an implant at the same time as the breast lift. Another benefit of this procedure is that the size of the areola can be reduced as, quite often, it has been stretched out, after breastfeeding.

The traditional technique requires three incisions, the so-called “anchor incisions” consisting of 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. More recent developments allow us to accomplish the same operation with only two incisions in most cases and in mild cases only a single incision. The two incisions are one around the nipple and a second vertical (called the “lollipop technique”) while the single incision technique is only around the areola.

Dr Papanastasiou will be in a position to advise you as to which incision is best for you after your physical examination.

Generally, bruising is rare and discoloration, if any, will last approximately two weeks. There may be slight swelling of the breasts for up to three months. You are usually functional after one week and can generally return to work at that time.

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 ☺️"
