We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.

 

NEW APPOINTMENT POLICIES

 

Dr. Berbari and her team prioritize patient and staff safety. Please familiarize yourself with these new procedures:

 

          Services will gradually resume from June 1 2020, respecting the social distancing guidelines issued by Public Health.

PROCEDURES FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

# 1 BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

           We have extended the time slots (fewer appointments per day) to give our employees time to disinfect the rooms between each patient.

           According to the above policies and dates, the contactless payment method will be favoured when making an appointment. Our staff will take your credit card number and the receipt will be emailed to you.

           You will then be invited to answer a COVID-19 questionnaire when booking the appointment (whether it is by email or by phone).

           N.B. follow-up appointments: we will contact you for follow-ups, as visits are now restricted to avoid contamination.

 

# 2 THE DAY OF THE APPOINTMENT:

           Please show up on time out of respect for other patients.

           Once you arrive in the clinic parking lot, please announce your arrival by phone (819-243-7667).

           A member of our team will welcome you in the doorway for an evaluation (questionnaire, temperature, mask, hydro alcoholic gel).

           N.B .: Only patients will have access to the clinic, anyone else must remain in the parking lot.

 

# 3 ONCE IN THE CLINIC:

          You will be taken directly to the treatment room.

          We opened door A for the aesthetic care (laser, radiofrequency, PRP etc.) of the MedicSPA and door B for surgery appointments and injections.

          After the appointment, you will be accompanied to the exit by a member of the team.

 

An explanatory video will be available on social media (@medicspa.gatineau on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM) and the website (drpatriciaberbari.com) on May 29 2020, to summarize these new procedures.

 

When interacting with our staff, understand that they have received strict directives, we ask you to respect them for your safety.

Who Makes an Ideal Brow Lift Candidate? By Patricia Berbari on March 28, 2014

Gatineau Brow Lift CandidatesThe forehead and brows are very expressive parts of our facial features. Because of this, signs of aging along the forehead or brows often give off negative impressions that patients don’t wish to convey. For instance, many patients who come to plastic surgeon Patricia Berbari for cosmetic enhancement of the forehead area complain that frown lines, sagging brows, and creases between the eyes have made them appear constantly tired, angry, or upset. Clearly, these are not the impressions that our patients would like to make. For those of our Gatineau patients who are brow lift candidates, this procedure can address these imperfections and give patients a more refreshed, alert, and pleasant appearance.

Brow Lift Candidates

The term “brow lift” may indicate to some patients that this procedure is concentrated solely on lifting or correcting the eyebrows. However, brow lift surgery is also known as a forehead lift because the procedure actually enhances the appearance of the brows and forehead by lifting the brows and altering the facial muscles of the forehead to create a softer and smoother appearance. Any patient who is concerned with signs of aging on the upper third of the face should discuss with Dr. Berbari possible candidacy for brow lift surgery.

As with any plastic surgery procedure, the first step in indicating whether a patient is a good candidate for brow lift surgery is to evaluate their health and medical history. In her commitment to minimize the risk of complications and ensure safe and effective surgical results for all patients, Dr. Berbari will only perform brow lift surgery on healthy individuals free of medical conditions that could make surgery an unsafe procedure. In general, brow lift candidates are male or female patients within the 35 to 70 year age range. Brow lift surgery is the ideal solution for patients who are concerned by the presence of the following characteristics:

  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Deep horizontal creases across the forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Furrows between the eyebrows
  • A tired, worried, or angry expression

If Dr. Berbari does determine that a patient is a good candidate for brow lift surgery, this procedure can create a softer, more relaxed, and refreshed appearance for patients.

Alternate Procedures

When signs of aging are concentrated along the forehead and brow line, brow lift surgery can be very effective in enhancing a patient’s appearance. However, in some cases Dr. Berbari may conclude that more extensive correction is required or that an alternate procedure may be more effective in producing the patient’s desired results. We offer a full range of facial plastic surgery procedures to address signs of aging and revitalize facial features. At a consultation, Dr. Berbari can evaluate each patient’s unique needs and desires to determine the best form of cosmetic enhancement.

Schedule a Consultation

Dr. Patricia Berbari would love to meet with you in person to discuss your cosmetic goals. If you have questions about the brow lift procedure and are interesting in finding out if you are an ideal candidate for surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Berbari at your earliest convenience. We look forward to hearing from you!
