WE'RE BACK!

 

We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.

 

NEW APPOINTMENT POLICIES

 

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.

 

PROCEDURES FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

# 1 BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

           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.

 

# 2 THE DAY OF THE APPOINTMENT:

           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.

 

# 3 ONCE IN THE CLINIC:

          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.

VASERsmooth® Treatment Reduces the Appearance of Cellulite

VASERsmooth® reduces the look of cellulite dimpling to give you the smooth, sleek appearance you desire. During this procedure, Dr. Patricia Berbari will carefully treat the fibrous attachments beneath your skin that create cellulite dimpling, which leads to dramatic and long-lasting results. She is one of just a few surgeons in the country to provide this amazing treatment. VASERsmooth® can be applied virtually anywhere that you have cellulite - on your legs, buttocks, arms, or abdomen. The treatment is fast and effective with minimal downtime compared to other body contouring surgeries. To learn more about VASERsmooth®, contact Dr. Berbari's office, located in Gatineau, Québec, today.

The VASERsmooth® Procedure

Before your VASERsmooth® treatment begins, you will meet with Dr. Berbari. All treatments begin with a consultation, during which we will discuss the areas of your body that suffer from cellulite. Cellulite occurs when fibrous, string-like tissues pull your skin inward, creating dimples within pillow-like pockets of fat. Even with diet and exercise, these fibrous strings remain unchanged and unbroken. VASERsmooth® actually breaks these fibers, which releases the tension on the skin for a smooth and uniform look.

VASERsmooth® is performed through very small incisions made at the treatment site - your legs, arms, abdomen, or buttocks. Dr. Berbari will use a long, thin probe to access the fibrous tissues that run throughout trouble areas. The VASERsmooth® probe gently ruptures these fibrous tissues through the application of high-frequency ultrasonic waves. The VASERsmooth® probe also emulsifies superficial fat tissues.

Once treatment is complete, Dr. Berbari will carefully suture closed the incisions she has made. Patients will return home to rest and should avoid unnecessary physical activity for three weeks. Some bruising, swelling, and tenderness can be expected in the weeks following the procedure. The results of VASERsmooth® begin to present themselves quickly following surgery, with final results achieved at six months post-surgery.

VASERsmooth® Candidates

Since primarily women develop cellulite, VASERsmooth® is a treatment reserved for female patients. Women of all shapes and sizes can develop cellulite, regardless of diet and exercise regimens, which makes this treatment suitable for most patients. However, candidates should be in good general health and able to undergo surgery. VASERsmooth® can provide long-lasting results and may be repeated should a patient develop cellulite or require a follow-up procedure.

Because VASERsmooth® is designed to treat cellulite, and does not involve substantial fat reduction, many of our patients also opt to undergo VASERlipo® liposuction treatment. VASERlipo® gently separates fat cells and suctions them out using ultrasound technology. The combination of these treatments can reduce dimpling, smooth an area for a sleeker and more contoured appearance, and remove unwanted fat deposits. VASERsmooth® can also be combined with VASER® Hi Definition 4D Liposuction, which creates definition using a patient's own fat.

Treatment Benefits 

In the past, no truly effective treatment existed for cellulite. Even with a healthy diet and exercise, women simply had to put up with the dimpled, bumpy look that cellulite creates. Today, VASERsmooth® gives women the option to treat their cellulite with a long-term solution. The VASERsmooth® treatment offers many benefits, including:

  • Increased confidence in your appearance
  • A smoother, more youthful silhouette (in conjunction with liposuction)
  • Non-targeted tissues are not disturbed during treatment
  • Treatment is done on an outpatient basis
  • Short recovery time means minimal time off of work and other activities
  • Results are visible immediately following surgery

During your personal consultation with Dr. Berbari, you will review these and other benefits, and determine whether this type of treatment is right for you.
