It is clear that the doctor truly cares about the experience and outcome for his patients

5 50 Tummy Tuck, Facelift • Paid: 6000 €

From my first email inquiry, I received a personal and informative response from Dr Stam himself. As our communication progressed, and I compared his offer, procedures, costs with other doctors, I felt that Dr Stam and his staff and the hospital that he uses (St. Luke's) were superior to other options I considered.

From photos of my areas of concern, Dr Stam sent an all-inclusive price for the facelift and tummy tuck, which included hospital fees and necessary garments to wear afterwards. The only other cost was for medications, which for me was 15 euros.

I was not required to send money as a deposit, which was a bonus because I was very uncomfortable sending money to a doctor in a foreign country whom I had not met. At our initial meeting in his comfortable office, I felt completely at ease. His English is flawless so I knew we understood each other. He thoroughly went over the procedures, showed me how my appearance would change and we talked about what to expect the day of surgery and the days following.

Dr Stam performed surgery the next morning. I was immensely pleased with the hospital and responsive staff, most of whom speak English. Dr Stam did a remarkable job of my surgery and was very present before and afterwards for reassurance. He "held my hand" the entire way, which made a potentially scary procedure far more comfortable for me. Because it is easier for me to get to the hospital rather than to his office, he agreed to followup appointments at the hospital where he changes the dressing and checks the progress of my recovery. Even though I am still very swollen, I can already tell how much better my face and neck look and my tummy is firmer than it has been since before the birth of my first child.

I couldn't be more pleased and I highly recommend Dr Stam to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. I believe he and the hospital offered better service than if I had had this done in the US, and the cost was about 1/3 what it would have been there. Dr Stam has a great "bedside manner," and it is clear that he truly cares about the experience and outcome for his patients.

I would certainly come back to him, were I to consider other cosmetic surgery in the future.

The doctor has been compassionate, professional, clear and has surpassed all of my expectations

5 50 Liposuction, Tummy Tuck

I had a Skype consultation with Dr. Stam after sending him some photos of my tummy area. He confirmed that I would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck with lipo and I booked myself in for a month later.

Dr. Stam even went as far as sending us potential hotels to stay at! On the morning of the surgery, Dr Stam was very reassuring and put me at ease instantly. When I came round I was in a semi-private room And there was no pain. He made sure that the pain medication was topped up regularly also the medication to help with sickness as s result in the anaesthetic. He told me that everything had gone perfectly and that the flap had weighed 5kg!

I had a surgical support on my tummy which he said I had to wear for 6 weeks and not to lie flat. The drains were removed the next day as there wasn’t much liquid in them. He checked the stitches and I was discharged to the hotel on the 3rd day. The only downside of the hospital is that the nursing staff didn’t speak much English. It was very clean. A follow up in Dr. Stam's offices showed that all was healing well and I was ok to fly home after 2 weeks.

Dr Stam was always available by WhatsApp or email if we had any questions at any time day or night. The wound was healing well and I could move around much better after 4 weeks. The only discomfort was wearing the support belt all the time.

After 6 months I came back for a follow up in Dr. Stam’s offices, he showed me the before and after photos which were amazing. I became quite emotional as I was finally free of the excess skin after 3 c-sections. My shape was finally as I had wished it to be.

Throughout the experience from beginning to end, Dr. Stam has been compassionate, professional, clear and has surpassed all of my expectations. I highly recommend him and you will be in good hands for sure. I am so glad that I came across his profile and I even got to recuperate in lovely Thessaloniki as a bonus.

I will not hesitate to recommend anyone because the doctor is the best. I will surely come back

5 50 Liposuction, Tummy Tuck • Paid: 3500 €

Going for surgery abroad is risky but after reading all the reviews from whatclinic.com I decided to contact Dr. Stamatis. At first, I was so skeptical but when I contacted him he gave me all the information I need to know about the procedures and put to ease all my fears and expectations.

I arrived in Thessaloniki 2 days to my lipo and tummy tuck surgery. I had a consultation and the for the surgery. I did all the test required in the clinic which I found very impressive. Dr. Stam and his team are the best, organised, attentive and caring. He listens to all your demands and to tell you are very pleased with my result, just a week after.
I will not hesitate to recommend anyone because he is the best. I will surely come back.

A beautiful experience with Dr. Stamatis, well-organized hospital, teamwork and everything is a perfect match.

Excellent service from start to finish and all my questions were answered promptly

4.5 50 Breast Reduction

Excellent service from start to finish from Dr Stam, he answered all queries promptly. He is a kind and reassuring doctor. My breast reduction procedure was carried out in a very professional manner, and despite my worries, it was not a very painful experience. I would recommend Dr Stam to a friend and compared to other places in Europe. I thought it was very good value for money.

I chose this clinic after reading reviews. Dr Stam has an office in central Thessaloniki which was easy to find. He spent a lot of time reassuring me that the surgery was a simple procedure, without putting any pressure on me to go ahead with it.

I was over the moon with my results

5 50 Breast Implants, Breast Lift, Arm Lift

Dr. Stam is a very talented surgeon, I am so happy that I decided to choose him for my surgery (my 4th surgery and 1st surgery with Dr. Stam). I stayed at the Anatolia hotel which was perfect, close to the hospital and Dr. Stam’s office, also if you wanted to do sightseeing it’s about a 5-minute drive. I flew into Greece on the 26th and was scheduled to have my surgery on the 27th, all the tests were done at the hospital and then I was shown to my room and prepped for my surgery (cleaner than the hospitals in the UK).

After the surgery when I woke up, I wasn’t in great pain but just the hassle of sleeping on your back (if you're having breast surgery). I had a breast lift with implant change with an arm lift revision, I was over the moon with my results. If you are looking to go, Dr. Stam, I would recommend someone accompany you as the first few days is a struggle to do basic things, but I am 20 so maybe someone that’s older might be able to cope. I’m a bit of a baby.

Would 100% recommend and for all my future surgeries would definitely choose Dr. Stam. Thank you.

I am so glad I did this and feel so lucky that I chose Dr. Stam!

5 50 Paid: 3000 €

I had experienced after my last caesarean section a severe infection and had to have twice surgery. The scar became very ugly and although I am quite skinny, a fat gut was the result of all this. I was very unhappy with my tummy and wanted to have it fixed, so I decided to have a tummy tuck.

I found Dr. Stam over the net and contacted him. His prompt responses, always very precise and helpful, have been very helpful. I sent him pictures of the problem area, he made the first evaluation and told me what I could expect. The entire procedure was easy, the hospital where I had surgery was clean and everyone was very kind and helpful (they all spoke English).
Three months after surgery, I am back to my old shape. I am so glad I did this and feel so lucky that I chose Dr. Stam! He is so talented and a wonderful person. I wish more doctors would be like him. Thank you, Dr. Stam. The result is so beautiful - I actually now love this scar!

I am very happy

4.5 50 Eyelid Surgery • Paid: 4000 €

Eyelid surgery + Macs lifting: Dr. Stamatis is a young, modern and talented plastic surgeon. I found him through the internet and I trusted him from the first sight. His practice is very modern and centrally located.
I am very happy with the results although it's two weeks ago. The scars are clean and nice; Dr. Stam works perfectly.

The clinic is not a luxury hospital but they are extraordinary. It's very clean and the nurses per person are many.
The only negative point is that nurses and doctors are very loudly on the floors, they speak loud and cry out.

My only regret is not proceeding with the surgery before now

5 50 Otoplasty

I came from France to have an Otoplasty with Dr. Stam. 2 weeks after the surgery, I almost have no visible trace of it and I am very happy with the result, having already the ears I always wanted to have.

The first contact made by mail before I arrived were reassuring. Dr. Stam responded quite fast to all of my questions.
During the surgery, Dr. Stam was calm, pleasant, attentive and very precise. He worked cautiously for the patient to feel comfort, without any pain, even during the anesthetic that was largely bearable.

The post operative follow-up was better than I expect, contrary to my fears. I had 3 appointments in his office and will have the last one before I leave.

Actually, my only regret is that I didn't have the courage to do this surgery before. Thank you, Dr. Stam.

His skill is undeniable

5 50 Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Stam removed my old large implants and changed for smaller replacements with a breast lift and I could not be happier with the result. From answering every single one of my relentless emails, to the first meeting at his office, to putting me at complete ease throughout, Dr. Stam was there every step of the way and I felt completely comfortable with him. Unlike other clinics, at no stage did I have to communicate via admin or front of house staff before or after the surgery. Dr. Stam listens to his patients, clearly cares and his skill is undeniable. I was also impressed at the medical pre-checks (ECG, X-ray, bloods etc.) before surgery as I did not receive any kind of checks in London 7 years ago. I am diabetic with a antibiotic allergy. Dr. Stam and his team monitored me throughout. After surgery Dr. Stam saw me a further 3 times the same week and although he was particularly busy changing lives for the better that week he always found time to answer my questions personally. I am ecstatic with the result and I would recommend him in a heartbeat! I now have the breasts I should have had years ago.

I have never experienced such an organised hospital as this. Although extremely busy every member of staff knows exactly what is going on. There are no long waits. Efficient, clean and professional.

I can recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking into plastic surgery abroad!

5 50 Blepharoplasty, Mini Facelift

Most of my friends would never think of me as a candidate for plastic surgery; and yet, I did it! I simply realized that gravity had taken over and my face was aging with every year. So I had a mini face lift with lower blepharoplasty and lipofilling. The results are excellent! If you also feel younger than you look, then this procedure might be the right thing for you too.

Once I had taken the decision, I did my homework thoroughly. I visited a few doctors in my country and emailed severel clinics abroad. The Czech Republic was for me initially an option, I found good clinics over there and fair prices, but it still felt a bit "anonymous". Then I contacted Dr. Stam in Greece and I knew right away, that I had found a best kept secret. Professionalism, competence, let alone that he is a warm hearted, responsive person with a genuine sense of humor and a visible passion for this work. He answered all my emails timely and in a succinct, clear way and helped me take the right decisions, such as recovery time. During the first visit he explained EXACTLY what I should be expecting. Simply said: He gained my trust.
The entire procedure was very well organized: I had to be at the clinic at 8 am, had my bloodwork, EKG and lung x-ray done and then had the surgery. The first days are not exciting, but they go by. I had the stitchces removed a few days later. Bruising and swelling lasted for approx 2 weeks. You should count with 3 weeks recovery, but be sure that each day things look better and better ! Dr. Stam has been wonderful during this entire procedure and his after-care service has been very helpful. The results are exactly what he had told me to expect and what I had in mind. I can recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking into plastic surgery abroad!

I feel so much more confident.

5 50 Liposuction

I chose to go for liposuction as I found it difficult to shift weight from stubborn areas like my hips and abdomen despite following healthy diet and having regular intensive exercise. Now having gone ahead with the procedure I feel so much more confident in myself and a lot of my family, friends and work colleagues have seen a massive change in me! I'm only a month post-op but I already see the changes. I'm already back to my regular exercise and haven't experienced any soreness after the first few days. Looking back, I wish I had done it sooner.

I have been considering that for many years but was indecisive, worrying about the procedure. I met with Dr Stam for initial consultation following recommendation by a friend of mine. He was very reassuring, he answered all my questions and explained thoroughly the procedure. He also explained the results I could expect and potential risks. It has been a month since Dr Stam performed the procedure and I am delighted with the results. He understood exactly what I wanted and I feel now more confident about my body. I
would absolutely recommend Dr Stam not only for his great surgical skills but also for his caring manner. Everyone involved was professional and a great help throughout the whole process.

Abdominal Etching (1 hour 30 mins)

Abdominal Etching - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

Abdominal etching, also known as six pack liposculpture, is an effective procedure to define abdominal muscles, sculpting the appearance of a six pack contour in the abdominal area. Many men and women devote a large portion of their exercise routine to building abdominal muscles that give a toned and fit appearance. However, even with exercise, not everybody can achieve that athletic six-pack definition. Due to body type and genetics, some people find it difficult to increase the definition of abdominal muscles even with strenuous abdominal exercises.

Arm Lift (1 hour 30 mins)

Arm Lift - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

A brachioplasty, commonly called an arm lift, is a surgical procedure to reshape and provide improved contour to the upper arms and connecting area of chest wall.While “brachioplasty” is commonly used to describe a specific procedure for the upper arms, the term can also be used to describe any surgical arm contouring. Brachioplasty is often used to address issues such as excessive loose skin or excessive fat in the arms when it does not respond well to diet and exercise.Brachioplasty is a common procedure for patients who have experienced massive weight loss and has gained popularity since 2000.

 

Breast Implant Revision

3000 € - 5000 €

Breast Implants - Breast Augmentation (1 hour 30 mins)

Breast Implants - Breast Augmentation - Dr.Stam Plastic SurgeryBreast Implants - Breast Augmentation - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

The procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic (with you asleep) usually with an overnight stay.


What are the benefits?

Breast augmentation is safe and will increase the size of your breasts. Breast-feeding is still possible (and safe). 


Importantly, you should understand that:


If your breasts are widely spaced apart to start with, they will remain widely-spaced

If your nipples point in slightly different directions beforehand, they may look more uneven after your breast enlargement


How long does the surgery take?

The operation itself may take between 45-90 minutes, depending on what technique is required


What is the recovery period?

Surgical drains (tubes) will be inserted into your breasts at the time of surgery - these are usually removed the following day. You will need to go into a supportive post-surgical or sports bra following surgery which you should continue wearing day and night for 6-weeks. After the surgery the wound will be dressed with medical tape. This is splash-proof and shower-proof but not bath-proof. You will be able to shower from the day after surgery, and dab the tape dry with a clean towel, kitchen towel or alternatively use a hair-dryer on a cold setting to dry the tapes. You will be able to return to sedentary activity (i.e. an office job or light duties) within a few days, depending upon how you feel.


What are the possible complications?

Hematoma, bleeding, infection. capsular contracture, lumpy scarring, rippling

Breast Lift (2 hours 30 mins)

Breast Lift - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery
A

breast uplift is a surgical procedure to improve the shape of the

breasts. Typically, women who are candidates for this procedure have physical symptoms related to the weight or shape of their

breasts. These symptoms include back pain, neck pain, and bra strap grooves. The incisions vary based upon the

breast size before the operation and the final post operative size. An incision is made around the nipple and areola accompanied by a vertical incision below the areola with or without a horizontal incision made in the crease below the

breast. Short scar techniques are frequently applicable in

breast

reduction surgery and allow excellent reduction of size with improved shape while limiting the extent of the incisions

Breast Reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery
 

Breast Reconstruction - DIEP Flap

Breast Reconstruction - DIEP Flap - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

In a DIEP flap, fat, skin, and blood vessels are cut from the wall of the lower belly and moved up to your chest to rebuild your breast. (In a properly performed DIEP, no muscle is cut or removed; if you’re having DIEP flap, make sure this will be the case.) Your surgeon carefully reattaches the blood vessels of the flap to blood vessels in your chest using microsurgery. Because no muscle is used, most women recover more quickly and have a lower risk of losing abdominal muscle strength with a DIEP flap compared to any of the TRAM flap procedures.


Tissue can be taken from your belly for breast reconstruction only once. So if you're thinking about prophylactic removal and reconstruction of the other breast, you might want to make that decision before you decide on reconstruction. If you have DIEP flap reconstruction on one breast and then later need reconstruction on your other breast, tissue for the second, later reconstruction will have to come from your buttocks or back. Or you can have reconstruction with an implant.

Because skin, fat, and blood vessels are moved from the belly to the chest, having a DIEP flap means your belly will be flatter and tighter -- as if you had a tummy tuck. Still, a DIEP flap does leave a long horizontal scar -- from hipbone to hipbone -- about one-third of the way between the top of your pubic hair and your navel. In most cases, the scar is below your bikini line. After the skin and fat are removed from your belly, the abdomen is closed. No mesh material is required to support the abdominal wall, as may be the case with a TRAM flap. Your navel is then brought back out through a separate incision and reshaped.

Breast Reduction (3 hours)

Breast Reduction - Dr.Stam Plastic SurgeryBreast Reduction - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery
Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty)

To remove tissue and skin from the breast, the surgeon first makes one or more cuts in the breast. After the excess tissue and skin have been removed, the skin is closed with stitches. Sometimes the nipple and areola have to be removed and repositioned.

Sometimes liposuction is used along with surgery. If most of the breast is fatty tissue and if excess skin isn't a problem, liposuction alone may be enough for breast reduction.

Breast reduction surgery is done in a hospital or surgical center, typically with general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes 3 to 5 hours. An overnight stay is not usually required. For smaller reductions, the surgery may be done with local anesthesia.


Immediately after surgery, gauze is placed over the incisions, and the breasts are wrapped in an elastic bandage or supported with a special surgical bra. In some cases, there may be a small tube in each breast to help drain blood and fluid for the first couple of days. Stitches may be removed in 1 to 2 weeks.

Most women have some breast pain for the first few days after surgery and then milder discomfort for a week or longer. Medicine can help relieve the pain. Swelling and bruising may last for several weeks. Wearing a surgical bra 24 hours a day can help reduce swelling and support the breasts while they heal.

You will likely resume your normal work and social activities within a couple of weeks, unless those activities involve heavy lifting or strenuous exercise. You may need to avoid more vigorous exercise and activities for 3 to 4 weeks or more. It's important to wear a bra that supports the breasts well, such as a sports or athletic bra.

You will have visible scars on your breasts after breast reduction surgery. These are almost always in areas that can be covered by a bra or swimsuit. Scars may fade over time, but they will not disappear.

Butt Lift with fat transfer

Brazilian

butt

lift

is a term to describe the buttock augmentation in a special way in order to look in more optimal and higher position. This can be achieved by silicone implants or liposculpture. Liposculpture means the combination of liposuction and fat transferring. As the buttock implants are associated with higher complication rate, in my practice i prefer to do buttock augmentation, using autologous tissue from the patient’s own fat. The satisfaction is high with less risks compared to silicone implants.

Facelift - Dr.Stam Plastic SurgeryFacelift - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

The mini or mid-facelift rejuvenates the central section of the face, from the lower eyelid to the upper lip, by repositioning sagging tissues and enhancing the volume of soft tissue that is lost in the midface with age, sun exposure and gravity.

3500 € - 5000 €

Mini Facelift (2 hours 30 mins)

MACS-Facelift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) is a procedure that leaves you looking fresher and youthful. People may not notice that you have had surgery, just that you look refreshed. The MACS-Lift helps to remove excessive jowling around the chin, deep creases that appear between your nose and mouth, and restores the outline of the jaw. The MACS-Lift is less invasive than other facelift procedures and leaves a shorter scar. This type of facelift will lift and hold up sagging tissues in the neck, cheeks, chin, or near the nose with suspension sutures in the deeper tissues. This operation is done on an outpatient basis while you are under local anesthesia.MACS FaceLift  provides natural rejuvenation with shorter operative time, quicker recovery, and less potential for complications compared with traditional face lifts. Fat grafting and Blepharoplasty can enhance the final result. 
 

Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery

Fat transfer, also called fat grafting, fat injections and lipofilling, is a procedure that uses a person’s own fat to fill in irregularities and grooves. This is now a well-established technique that was perfected in the early nineties to a predictable procedure.

Aesthetic indications for undergoing lipofilling include sunken cheeks, the disappearance of fat from the cheekbones, deep grooves running from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and in some instances of lines between the lower eyelids and the cheek. It is also one of the most common methods used for lip enhancement. In addition, lipofilling can be used to smooth out all types of irregularities such as those resulting from poorly performed liposuction or injuries.

The necessary fat is obtained by a limited liposculpture through one or several 3 to 5 mm incisions. It is normally taken from the abdomen or inner thigh. The aspirated fat is processed by centrifuging, filtering or rinsing. Pure liquid fatty tissue ready for injection is the result.

The fat is then injected where needed. The fat is evenly distributed into the area by injecting minute amounts in the tissues so that the injected fat is well surrounded by healthy tissue. This ensures that the transplanted fat remains in contact with the surrounding tissues that must supply it with oxygen and nutrients.

Inverted Nipple Surgery

Inverted Nipple Surgery - Dr.Stam Plastic Surgery
nverted nipple refers to a condition in which the entire nipple or a portion of it is buried inward toward the lactiferous duct. Inverted nipples are a common source of selfconsciousness and concern for many women. It has been estimated that from 2 to 10% of women are affected by inverted nipples presenting uni- or bilaterally with varying degrees of severity. This deformity has been linked to various aesthetic, functional, and psychological problems and can be troublesome in breastfeeding.
Inverted nipple can result from congenital or acquired causes. A large majority of cases are attributable to congenital causes.


We present 2 cases of female patients with inverted nipples. Both patients were treated under local anesthesia with "Arabesque"-shape sutures technique invented by Dr.Stam. 

The technique was published in the official journal of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

Back Liposuction

Improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and a vacuum device. This procedure can be performed using the tumescent or the super-wet techniques. Liposuction techniques typically are performed after targeted fat cells are infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic and adrenalin to decrease blood loss, allow an easier removal of the fat, as well as diminish postoperative discomfort. This also reduces post-operative bruising and swelling. The most common locations for liposuction are: chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms, the area above the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
