Enhanced Size, Shape, & Symmetry

At our practice serving Gatineau and Ottawa, patients can choose from a variety of breast implant shapes and sizes. During your consultation, we will share several before and after photos with you to help you visualize how different implants can deliver the volume and curvature you desire.

Improved Proportions

Small breasts can affect the symmetry between your chest and your hips, making your body appear somewhat unproportional. In addition to improving the symmetry between your breasts, breast implants can improve the symmetry between your bust line and your hips.

Increased Confidence

Underdeveloped breast tissue can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and some women may avoid wearing certain pieces of clothing because they want to hide their chest. Breast augmentation can give you the size, shape, and symmetry you desire, boosting your confidence level.

Breast Implants
Can Address Many Concerns

Breast augmentation can be performed as a cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. While some patients simply want cosmetic enhancement, others want to restore lost breast tissue after a mastectomy or chest trauma. 

However, breast augmentation is not designed to address sagging breast tissue. If you are unhappy with the projection of your bust line because of weight loss, pregnancy, or aging, you may be a better candidate for a breast lift. Dr. Berbari can combine breast augmentation with a breast lift to give you the shape, size, and lift you desire.

Breast Augmentation Candidates

In this video, Dr. Berbari discusses who is a suitable breast lift or breast augmentation candidate. You may want a breast augmentation if you are dissatisfied with the size of your breasts. It can also benefit women who have had children and want to restore lost breast volume.

Is Breast Augmentation Safe?

While all surgery carries a degree of risk, breast augmentation is usually safe when performed by a skilled surgeon.

Dr. Berbari is always careful to strike a balance between what the patient wants and what is safe for their body. At Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale in Gatineau, Quebec, we dedicate a generous amount of time to our initial consultations so that we can build strong patient-surgeon relationships, consistently exceed patient expectations, and ensure successful breast augmentations. 

To further promote your safety, we only use breast implants that have been approved by Health Canada. 

What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Surgery

Plastic Surgery Consultation

Each patient has a different personal motivation for their breast augmentation. During your in-office consultation, Dr. Berbari and her staff listen carefully, noting your objectives, discussing the risks associated with breast implants, and letting you know what to expect during the procedure. Throughout your journey, it is important to maintain realistic expectations and to be mindful that breast augmentation achieves enhancement, not perfection.


On the day of surgery, our plastic surgeon will welcome you to her in-office surgical suite. For your comfort, breast augmentation surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. During surgery, you will remain in a sleep-like state and wake up gently when the surgery is over.


Dr. Berbari understands that most patients want to conceal their scars, so she uses a conservative approach when performing the surgery. By making the small surgical incision in the natural fold of your skin and crease of your breast, most post-surgery scars remain hidden. In some cases, patient's needs are best met by placing a circular incision around the areola. With proper care, your incisions will heal relatively quickly and the scars will become less visible over time, resulting in a discreet, natural-looking enhancement.

Breast Implant Placement

Dr. Berbari provides patients with two options for implant placement. The first is subglandular placement, during which Dr. Berbari creates a pocket between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle. She then places the implant under a smooth and protective layer of tissue. The second method is submuscular, during which Dr. Berbari creates a pocket underneath the pectoral muscle to camouflage the implant. Depending on your personal wishes and the properties of your chest, she will help you choose the best option.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation 

Recovery from breast augmentation surgery varies for each patient, but all patients can generally expect soreness during the first two days of recovery. Because Dr. Berbari wants to make your experience as comfortable as possible, she prescribes pain medication to counteract negative side effects.

You will also a receive a compression garment to wear for approximately six weeks after your surgery. For your convenience, these are available at our surgery center.

To reduce the risk of capsular contracture, you will be instructed to massage your breasts gently during your recovery.

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!

I had a consultation with Dr. Berbari within a couple of weeks of first contacting her office. I was scheduled for surgery very soon after. Elyse was very helpful in providing locations to get required pre-op blood work and ECG.
Dr. Berbari and her whole staff are very warm and welcoming. The nurses and surgical team are very thorough and make you feel very comfortable.
I was very small chested and one breast was significantly different in size from the other. Dr. Berbari has given me so much self confidence with my body and I could not be happier with my implants. I highly recommend her to anyone considering this procedure. She reviews all options with you as well as provides her expert opinion on what is best for your body type and overall desired outcome. Thank you Dr. Berbari!!!

Risks & Complications

Like any surgery, breast augmentation carries some degree of risk. Dr. Berbari dedicates extensive consultation time to ensure patients are aware of potential complications, which could include:

  • Bleeding 
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Problems with scarring 
  • Re-opening of incision
  • Capsular contracture (hardening of the breast)

However, while certain factors like medications, smoking, sun exposure, the type of breast implant, and the placement of the breast implant can increase your risk of complications, certain issues are completely unpredictable. It is important to be aware of and prepared for unforeseen side effects.
