Plastic surgeon Walter Zamarian Jr., M.D. is a member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery - SBCP – and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons - ASPS -, organizations that demand the highest standards from their members. Dr. Zamarian Jr. has seen patients from Londrina, Northern Paraná, and abroad for approximately 11 years. After graduating from UEL Medical School, with a specialization in General Surgery, Dr. Zamarian went for a three-year Plastic Surgery postgraduate work at the clinic of Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, a reference in Plastic Surgery all over the world. Dr. Zamarian Jr. specialized in Plastic Surgery at Clínica Pitanguy and at Santa Casa de Misericórdia in Rio de Janeiro, PUC-RIO.
Dr. Walter Zamarian Jr. is proud to have continued a tradition handed down by his father, Dr. Walter Zamarian Sr., renowned plastic surgeon who worked in the Londrina region for many years. What makes him stand out as a plastic surgeon is his acute sense of aesthetics, improved with years of experience and training.
Dr. Zamarian Jr. has operated with the best plastic surgeons in Brazil and abroad. Fluent in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and Italian, he sees patients from different nationalities. What’s his commitment? To provide his patients with the most attractive and long-lasting results, following the example of renowned Professor and plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy.
“I see plastic surgery as an opportunity to be creative, as an artist. My mission is not only to attain the best aesthetics results or to correct flaws but also to search for a balance between mind and spirit”, emphasizes Dr. Zamarian Jr., who spends his free time swimming and discovering the universe of photography and wines, his favorite activities.
Born in Cornélio Procópio, Paraná, on April, 11, 1975, plastic surgeon Walter Zamarian Jr. lived in Rio de Janeiro in his early years while his father concluded his residency with the physician who would later become his master: the internationally recognized professor Ivo Pitanguy. Next, the family moved to Umuarama, where he lived for around two years, before moving to Londrina. It was in the city of Londrina that his father, Dr. Zamarian Sr. worked all his life.
Dr. Walter Zamarian Jr. studied at Colégio Universitário, in Londrina, for 11 years. A very diligent student, he passed the Londrina State Medical School entrance examination the first time he tried it. During high school, he was already interested in learning languages – which explains his ability to speak many languages today -, music – he plays the keyboard and the saxophone - and swimming.
Incidentally, 2014 was a very special year for Dr. Zamarian Jr.: it was the year he celebrated 10 years of services rendered to patients in the city of Londrina. In a flashback, it is important to remember that he was one of the founders of the Londrina State University (UEL) School Hospital Burn Unit, where he was able to use the experience he had acquired as an intern at Hospital Andaraí, during his Plastic Surgery training with Dr. Ivo Pitanguy.
In his new office in one of Londrina’s most upscale regions – a city known as a reference in Northern Paraná for its medical centers -, Dr. Zamarian Jr. follows Dr. Pitanguy’s teachings to the letter by using his techniques and by developing different procedures, always based on his master’s teachings.
A recurring question: How many surgeries does Dr. Zamarian perform a year? The number goes over 550 interventions in 12 months. In addition, he has been invited to give lectures and participate in many Congresses and Conferences. Recently, in Rio de Janeiro, he presided a roundtable on Body Contours at a meeting of the Association of Former Students of Professor Pitanguy. A special honor bestowed only on a very few people.
This is Dr. Zamarian Jr: a professional who, despite his many activities, is able to intensively dedicate himself to each one of them, always looking for perfection, one of his most outstanding qualities.
Dr. Zamarian has yet another outstanding characteristic: he listens to his patients, and the results have been highly positive and avant garde. In addition, he has always been ahead of his time by developing new surgical procedures and techniques to facilitate and bring more comfort to his patients’ surgical experience.
One of the procedures being currently adopted by Dr. Zamarian includes the use of surgical glue, also known as cyanoacrylate glue. This glue, however, was not used in Dr. Pitanguy’s original procedure; however, some patients complained when the stitches were removed, especially after a mammoplasty and an abdominoplasty. With this in mind, Dr Zamarian Jr found a solution to minimize the discomfort caused by the removal of these intradermal stitches.
What did he do? He found in the cyanocrylate glue not only the solution for the discomfort but also an efficient way to heal scars, impeding the penetration of agents after its application and reducing bleeding and the need for constant change dressings postoperatively; undoubtedly, a great advance.
Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a surgical procedure widely performed by many plastic surgeons; however, Dr. Zamarian noticed that many patients undergoing abdominoplasty were concerned with their belly button. “Most patients asked for a small belly button, without any apparent scars around it”, he recalls.
It was a plastic surgeon from Mato Grosso, Dr. Giovanni Pires Viana, who introduced the omphaloplasty (navel surgery) of Juri, which consists in making a triangular section on the upper pedicle. Dr. Zamarian Jr. improved the technique by using a short umbilical cord, which resulted in small belly buttons with an internal scar, improving even more their appearance. “This way we brought the natural look back to abdominoplasty”, he states.
Another common complaint made by patients in his office turned into another innovation. Those dark circles around the eyes, once treated surgically, are now, thanks to Dr. Zamarian, minimized by the application of the hyaluronic acid Restylane. The action brings more predictability and comfort to the treatment, since it saves a trip to the operating room, pleasing men and women alike.
