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.

           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.

SmartLipo™ Gatineau | Ottawa

If you have stubborn fat deposits that won't respond to exercise or dieting, but don't have the time or patience to undergo an invasive cosmetic procedure, SmartLipo™ can help you. Advancements in liposuction technology have led to this minimally invasive body contouring procedure, which uses the SmartLipo™ Triplex laser to remove excess fat deposits in target areas while also enhancing the overall quality of the skin. Dr. Patricia Berbari and her staff at Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale are proud to offer SmartLipo™ to patients in the Gatineau and Ottawa regions of Ontario. After experiencing the long-lasting benefits of SmartLipo™, many people have learned to love their bodies again. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Berbari to find out if you're a candidate for SmartLipo™.

Dr. Patricia Berbari discusses the SmartLipo™ procedure. She talks about the different sedative options available to patients. She discusses the science behind the procedure.

What Is SmartLipo ™?

As a leader in laser-assisted lipolysis, Dr. Berbari is the first cosmetic surgeon in her area to offer the SmartLipo procedure. Utilizing a blend of three laser wavelengths, the SmartLipo™ Triplex laser safely aids in the removal of excess fat deposits, while also tightening the patient's skin. Many patients have turned to SmartLipo™ for the removal of stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the neck, chest, abdomen, inner arms, inner thighs, and knees. Because of advancements in laser technology, SmartLipo™ offers a much quicker recovery period than traditional liposuction. In fact, many patients are able to return to work and resume daily activities just one to four days after their SmartLipo™ treatment.

The SmartLipo ™ Procedure

Before performing the SmartLipo™ procedure, Dr. Berbari will mark each targeted treatment area on the body for patient confirmation. Next, she will apply a local anesthetic and a tumescent fluid containing adrenaline to each treatment area. The use of local anesthetic ensures that the patient will have a comfortable experience, while still remaining conscious of their surroundings. Next, a fine laser cannula, or tube, will be placed under the skin through a small, strategically placed incision. The combined energy of the SmartLipo™ Triplex's three lasers effectively destroys fat cells within each targeted area, and aids in the production of new collagen fibers. Laser technology also helps coagulate blood vessels, resulting in minimal bruising, certainly much less than that of traditional liposuction. Finally, the laser-liquefied fat will be gently suctioned away with a special instrument. Any small incisions will be sutured or bandaged, and the patient can go home shortly after.

SmartLipo ™ Candidates

As with traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ candidates should be in good overall health and should maintain an active lifestyle. The best candidates for SmartLipo™ are patients looking to remove stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to regular diet and exercise, but this treatment should not be used as a substitute for diet and exercise. SmartLipo™'s quick recovery period makes this procedure ideal for patients who cannot afford to take a lot of time away from work or regular activities. A consultation with Dr. Berbari is the best way to find out if SmartLipo™ will address your particular needs.

SmartLipo ™ Benefits

SmartLipo™ is a safe and reliable body sculpting treatment that requires only minimal downtime. This treatment not only removes excess fat from target areas, but also promotes new collagen growth, which leads to tighter, smoother-looking skin. Patients are thrilled with the high-definition sculpted look this treatment provides, ranging from defined waistlines in women, to visible abdominal muscles in men.
