Excess fat deposits on your arms, abdomen, or legs can be difficult to target with diet and exercise alone, leaving you feeling discouraged.

Board-certified surgeon Patricia Berbari offers the latest types of liposuction at her surgery center serving Ottawa and Gatineau, QC.

Here's why so many men and women turn to liposuction to get the contours and shape they desire...

Target Stubborn Areas

Even if you eat well and exercise regularly, certain areas like your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms can retain unresponsive fat deposits and make you self-conscious. Surgery lets you improve your body's contours so that you look and feel your best.

Prompt Results

During the procedure, Dr. Berbari will immediately and permanently break up and suction fat cells from under your skin. Although there will be some swelling and bruising, the results will be visible almost immediately. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your results can be long-lasting.

Elevated Self-Esteem

When you feel good about your physique, you also feel more confident. If stubborn fat has prevented you from wearing certain types of clothing or made you feel self-conscious about your body, body contouring can help you love your look.

The procedure can also be used to treat medical conditions such as gynecomastia, excessive sweating in the armpit, and benign fatty tumors.

Liposuction Is Not a Weight Loss or Cellulite Treatment 

It is important to note that this treatment is considered strictly cosmetic. If you are trying to lose weight to improve your health, liposuction is not a proper weight loss solution. If you are attempting to get rid of cellulite, you may be a better candidate for a thigh lift or abdominoplasty

Combining Procedures for Maximized Results

Men and women at our cosmetic surgery center serving Gatineau and Ottawa commonly combine liposuction with other plastic surgery procedures, including:

  • Fat Transfer: Dr. Berbari can safely transfer fat from one area of your body to an area that you wish to make more plump. Because we use your own tissue, there is a reduced risk of rejection or complications. While injectable fillers need to be touched up every few months, the results of a fat transfer can last for several years.
  • Breast Surgery: If you are unhappy with the shape, size, or symmetry of your breasts, you can also combine lipo with a breast procedure such as breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a breast reduction

During your consultation, our cosmetic surgeon can review your concerns and design a treatment plan that fits your needs. Often, liposuction is incorporated into a comprehensive mommy makeover procedure.

A couple of month ago Dr. Berbari performed a smart liposuction on my chin. The results were excellent. The procedure was pain free and the recovery was fast. I followed her recommendations pre and post operation and had hardly any bruising or swelling.  I am posting this now after seeing the final results a couple of months after the procedure and am very pleased.
Thank you Dr. Berbari!

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!

Types of Liposuction

Advancements in technology have led to the introduction of new types of liposuction, including:

Our plastic surgery center owns the only LaserLipo and SmartLipo equipment in the region. We are proud to offer these advanced techniques for Gatineau and Ottawa patients at Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale. Dr. Berbari can explain the advantages of each type during a personal consultation.

What to Expect On Surgery Day


Dr. Berbari performs most plastic surgery procedures at our ultra-modern surgical center, which is equipped with two operating rooms and the latest surgical technology.


For your comfort, this surgery is most commonly performed using sedation or general anesthesia.

Dr. Berbari will begin by carefully creating several small incisions in your treatment areas and injecting an anesthetic through a cannula.

Fat Removal

Surgery generally takes one to two hours to perform, depending on the number of areas being treated. For your safety and comfort, Dr. Berbari offers tumescent and laser liposuction techniques. She will break up the fat in certain areas and suction it through a cannula. For your safety, there will be a limit on the amount of fat that we can remove.


Although you will be able to see dramatic results within five to 10 days of the procedure, you will be asked to wear a compression garment for approximately six weeks. You may need a few days of downtime, depending on the extent of your procedure.

We Stand Behind Our Results

Many patients are worried that surgery will leave them with uneven skin consistency. But Dr. Berbari uses the latest tools and careful techniques to produce consistently smooth, natural-looking results. 

If you are not fully satisfied with the results, we will deduct the cost of liposuction from another surgery at our plastic surgery practice, such as a neck lift, facelift, or abdominoplasty.

What an amazing experience at the clinic of Dr Berbari!! It all starts with the warmth and professionalism of her staff. My wife came in for a facial procedure, and Dr Berbari did a fantastic job. During the preop consultation she answered all of our questions thoroughly and showed interest and compassion. The post operative results were exactly what my wife was hoping for.
I fully recommend her services for the overall great experience we had!!!  We will be coming back and will be referring friends and family.

Thank you Dr. Berbari!

Enhancing Your Results

For some liposuction candidates who have stretched skin as well as excess fat tissue, Dr. Berbari in Gatineau, QC, recommends Forma Skin Tightening. This non-surgical treatment encourages collagen growth and tightens the skin, enhancing your results. 

Potential Risks and Complications

As with any surgical procedure, liposuction involves side effects such as bruising and soreness. It also involves some degree of risk. Complications are rare, but can include: 

  • Asymmetrical and irregular contours
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection

By choosing a highly trained board-certified plastic surgeon, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you are in good hands during your treatment.
