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




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.


          Long-term follow-ups will resume as of June 22 2020 and will be carried out by telemedicine. Appointments will be given after July 6 2020 as needed.





           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.



           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.



          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.

Breast Implant Profiles and How They Affect Breast Augmentation Results By Patricia Berbari on August 29, 2014

A woman having her breasts measured while wearing a red braDr. Patricia Berbari is committed to helping patients achieve the look that they have always wanted. When meeting with patients at her Gatineau practice, she takes great time weighing all options for each surgery. This level of deliberation is particularly important when it comes to breast enlargement surgeries. The best possible breast augmentation results involve customization to the patient and careful consultation.

Many patients think of implant size alone when it comes to breast augmentation surgery, but there are other factors to keep in mind. One such factor is breast implant profile, which we'd like to go over in brief detail right now.

What is breast implant profile?

Breast implant profile refers to the amount of outward projection of the breast implants. The higher the implant profile, the more prominent a patient's cleavage will be after surgery. There are three primary kinds of implant profiles: low profile, moderate profile, and high profile.

Why Breast Implant Profile Matters to Final Results

Breast implant size gets a lot of emphasis when it comes to the final results of breast augmentation surgery, and it's true that larger breast implants will make a major impact when it comes to your appearance. However, sometimes a higher or lower breast implant profile will assist in improving the final results of surgery.

For instance, a large breast implant with a lower profile may be ideal for certain patients, while smaller breast implants with a higher profile may be more ideal for others. In other words, implant size matters, but it's not the only matter to consider when it comes to breast augmentation.

Moderate Profile Breast Implants

Moderate profile breast implants are the standard profile of breast implants. These are the base to which all other profiles are compared.

Low Profile Breast Implants

Low profile breast implants provide the least amount of forward projection. Low profile breast implants tend to be the best option for women who have wider frames, allowing results to appear more natural.

High Profile Breast Implants

High profile breast implants provide the greatest amount of forward projection. High profile breast implants are often ideal for patients with narrower frames. (Note: There is also a moderate-plus profile for breast implants that provides intermediate projection between moderate profile and high profile implants.)

Taking Other Factors Into Account for Your Breast Augmentation

As we have noted above, the profile of the breast implants is considered with regard to a patient's body type as well as the size of the breast implants. In addition to these factors, the profile of the breast implants will also be considered with regard to the shape of the breast implants and the placement of the implants relative to the pectoral muscle. By weighing these factors as well as the patient's own aesthetic goals, the best possible surgical results are possible.
