About The Doctor, V.W. Papanastasiou, MD, CM, MSc, FRCSC
After graduating from McGill Medical School in Montreal, in 1979, Dr. Bill Papanastasiou embarked on specialty training in plastic surgery and obtained his specialist certification in 1986.

Throughout his career he has endeavored to be on the cutting edge of innovation and technology in his field. In 1989, he was the first to perform syringe liposculpture in the McGill system. Then, in 1995, he was the first in Montreal to perform endoscopic breast implant surgery through a tiny incision in the underarm. He also introduced the revolutionary laser assisted Smartlipo™ to the Montreal market, thus markedly improving on the quality of results of liposuction.
He is a member of numerous professional societies, such as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the College des Médecins du Québec.
Dr Papanastasiou specializes in all aspects of cosmetic surgery including the face, breasts and body sculpting. His goal as a plastic surgeon has always been simple and straight forward: to deliver the best possible results with the smallest scars and the least amount of discomfort to the patient.
