Woman with slim figure

Body Contouring

Weight loss, age, and genetics can change the way your body looks, but some problem areas can't be improved with diet and exercise alone.

Body contouring by board-certified plastic surgeon Patricia Berbari can help you achieve the figure you've been dreaming of.

Our Gatineau, QC, clinic offers life-changing body contouring treatments to enhance the appearance and confidence of patients across Canada.

What We Offer Body Contouring Patients



This treatment removes unwanted fat to help you achieve a trimmer figure. Liposuction can be performed during other cosmetic procedures for even greater aesthetic results.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat from the midsection for a tighter, flatter appearance. Dr. Berbari will customize your procedure for optimal results and minimal visible scarring.

Woman touching thigh

Thigh Lift

The thighs are one of the most common areas for loose skin as a result of aging. Dr. Berbari can remove extra skin and fat to redefine or tone your legs and achieve a more youthful look.

Before and after an arm lift

Arm Lift

An arm lift can eliminate sagging skin and stubborn fat from your upper arm. Dr. Berbari can reshape this area for a fit, toned appearance.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Berbari prefers Brazilian butt lift surgery to implants for precise, natural-looking results. She can use excess fat collected from other areas of your body to contour your backside.

Laser cosmetic treatment on man

Laser Cosmetic Treatments

Our modern laser technology stimulates collagen production and tackles stubborn cellulite, rosacea, acne, and many other skin issues. These treatments offer excellent results with minimal swelling and discomfort.

Warmly Welcoming Transgender Patients

Body contouring can play an important role in your transition. We welcome the opportunity to help transgender patients achieve their ideal figures. These are just a few of the body contouring procedures that can bring you closer to the body you desire.

Fat Transfer

Liposuction can be used to achieve a slimmer, more toned appearance in the abdomen, arms, thighs, and other parts of the body. Dr. Berbari can then redistribute the fat collected during liposuction treatment to enhance your figure in other areas. This process is known as fat transfer or fat grafting.

Breast Enhancement

Patients can choose breast augmentation to attain a chest that matches their ideal silhouette. Our Gatineau practice offers both silicone and saline implants so you can enjoy a greater ability to customize your results.


This cosmetic surgery removes loose skin and tightens the abdominal area for a flatter, contoured look. You can include liposuction in your tummy tuck treatment plan for even more flattering results.

Risks and Complications  Of Body Contouring Treatments

As with any medical procedure, body contouring treatments have potential adverse effects and complications. The likelihood and severity of these side effects can depend on your medical history and lifestyle factors. Complications can include, but are not limited to:

  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Scarring
  • Numbness
  • Infection

It is important to remember that the chance these issues will occur varies widely by treatment, and some treatments carry virtually no risk of significant adverse effects. Contact our clinic for more information on the adverse effects associated with individual aesthetic procedures.

Recovering From Your Procedure

The recovery process will look very different for each patient, depending on what treatments they have received.

Surgical Procedures

Recovering from a surgical procedure can take several weeks to a few months. These procedures will require bandaging and may require drainage tubes to aid healing. Patients use either over-the-counter or prescription medication to help manage discomfort. 

Laser Treatments

Many patients take a day or two off to focus on their skin after a laser cosmetic treatment. Your skin will be sensitive, so only use gentle soaps and moisturizers, avoid makeup, and wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher while recovering.

Dr. Berbari will provide detailed aftercare instructions as part of your treatment plan. Contact us online or request a consultation to learn more about the recovery period for specific body contouring treatments.

I have had an amazing experience with Dr. Berbari. She was the first one in the region to do body contouring and fat transfer, including Brazilian butt lift! I did the procedure with her and am extremely satisfied. She was professional, kind and ethical, providing me with all the information in advance, the benefits, he risks etc. She was also superb during the follow up of my surgery, very kind and attentive. My results are what I expected, enhanced without being extreme, giving me nice curves.
I highly recommend Dr Berbari!
