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.

Liposuction for Male Patients By Patricia Berbari on August 29, 2015

Male with a fit, sculpted midsectionSometimes men and women feel like they come from two different planets, but despite their many differences, there are also a lot of things that men and women have in common. One of these is the desire to look and feel their best. Unfortunately, another thing commonly shared among men and women is the inability to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. No matter how diligently a person works out and no matter how careful they may be to avoid certain foods, there are some pockets of fat that just don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove fat deposits from the body to give patients the trimmer and more sculpted figure they desire. Dr. Patricia Berbari offers male liposuction at her Gatineau practice to help male patients address common areas of concern so that they can achieve a more toned and masculine figure.

Male Liposuction Candidates

Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who have areas of the body that lack definition due to the presence of excess fat. These patients should be in good overall health and not carry excessive weight. Liposuction can help to tone and sculpt the figure, but it is not a weight-loss solution.

In the past few years, liposuction has become a popular procedure among our male patients. Some male problem areas that are commonly treated by Dr. Berbari through a liposuction procedure include the following:

  • The flanks: More commonly referred to as “love handles,” the flanks are common trouble zones for males. Excess fat around this area can be difficult to hide, and can prevent men from achieving the fit physique that they desire.
  • The abs: That elusive six-pack appearance is even more difficult to achieve when there is excess fat around a man’s midsection.
  • The chest: Excess fat around the chest can really impact a man’s self-esteem. Excess fat in this area not only prevents men from achieving the firm, toned chest that they prefer, but it can also make men feel less masculine.
  • The jawline: While liposuction is popular for enhancing a man’s physique, it can also be performed on the lower face and neck. Excess fat around the jawline creates the appearance of a double chin and makes it difficult to achieve a strong, firm, masculine jawline.

The Procedure

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is performed using local or general anesthetic. Dr. Berbari will begin treatment by making a series of small incisions around the treatment area. Through these incisions, Dr. Berbari will inject a saline solution that contains anesthetic and adrenalin. This solution makes it easier to break up fat and reduce bleeding. Finally, a cannula will be inserted into the incisions and fat will be broken up and removed from the body.

Benefits of Liposuction

Once patients have recovered from liposuction treatment, they will be able to enjoy several benefits. These include a tighter, toned figure, helping men to attain the masculine physique that they desired.

Schedule an Appointment

If you have areas of the body that you’d like to sculpt or tone, you may be an ideal candidate for liposuction treatment. To learn more about the liposuction procedure, schedule an appointment with Dr. Patricia Berbari at your earliest convenience.
