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.

Labiaplasty Recovery: What to Expect after Treatment By Patricia Berbari on October 29, 2018

Photo of woman’s abdomen, pelvic area, and upper thighsWomen who are self-conscious about the appearance of their labia, or who experience discomfort during routine activities, can benefit from vaginal rejuvenation, or labiaplasty, at our Gatineau, QC plastic surgery practice.

This procedure strategically removes excess or elongated labial tissue for a more uniform appearance. Full labiaplasty recovery typically takes approximately six weeks on average. To learn more, schedule a consultation with Dr. Patricia Berbari.

Labiaplasty Recovery Timeline

When undergoing any surgical procedure, it is important to familiarize yourself with the treatment, as well as what to expect during recovery. Here, our experienced team of doctors explains what to anticipate during the days, weeks, and months after your labiaplasty.

The First 48 Hours

Patients are generally released to go home about two hours after their labiaplasty procedure. A trusted friend or family member must drive you home. We also recommend having someone spend the first night with you so they can assist you if necessary.

You will be given a detailed list of post-treatment guidelines. These should be followed precisely to ensure comfortable healing.

Your doctor will also provide you with pain medication and antibiotics. These should be taken as directed to mitigate discomfort, swelling, and bruising.

You will not be able to shower for the first 48 hours.

You should also avoid strenuous exercise, although light walking is recommended as soon as possible to increase blood flow and promote healing.

One to Two Weeks

In most cases, your stitches will fall out on their own around seven to 10 days after surgery. Pain and discomfort may still be present but should be manageable with over-the-counter or prescription medications. During this time, it is important to keep your incisions clean and dry to prevent infection and other complications.

Most patients are able to return to office work in one to two weeks after their labiaplasty. If your job is physically demanding, you may require more time.

Four to Six Weeks

Following labiaplasty, patients should not swim, use tampons, or have sexual intercourse for four to six weeks. Strenuous activity or heavy lifting must also be avoided.

In most cases, sexual activity can be resumed after six weeks.

Your doctor will see you for routine follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and make any personalized recommendations.

Two to Three Months

The skin around the incisions may appear inflamed and red for up to three months following your labiaplasty. These side effects are normal and should diminish over time with proper care. Your incisions are strategically placed to reduce visible scarring. Once your healing is complete, the desired results should be evident.

Hygiene Tips following Labiaplasty

Due to the nature of labiaplasty, is it extremely important to keep your incisions clean during recovery. Here are a few simple tips to help you achieve this goal:

  • Gently wash the incisions with mild soap and water
  • Ask your doctor about using chlorhexidine as a topical antiseptic
  • Pat your incisions after showering or let them air dry
  • Wear a pantyliner

As always, these are general recommendations. It is important that you discuss post-operative instructions in detail with your doctor during a consultation at our practice.
