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.

Learn More about Saline Breast Implants

Dr. Berbari holding a breast implant while conversing with a patientBefore undergoing breast augmentation with Dr. Patricia Berbari, one of the most important decisions you will make is the choice of which type of breast implants to receive. In addition to cohesive silicone gel types, we also offer saline breast implants at our Gatineau practice to meet the diverse needs of our patients. It is important to understand that neither type is considered the best. Rather, the breast implants that are right for you will depend on your unique desires. To learn more about saline breast implants, schedule a consultation with Dr. Berbari today.

Receiving Saline Breast Implants

A saline implant consists of an empty silicone shell that is filled with a sterile saltwater solution. If you choose to receive saline implants, Dr. Berbari will first insert the silicone shells through incisions along your nipples, down the breasts, or along the creases where your breasts meet your abdomen. The implants can be positioned either above the pectoral muscle or below it, and Dr. Berbari will explain the benefits of each technique before undergoing treatment to help you decide. Once the implants are in place, she will use a special tube to fill them to the desired volume. Dr. Berbari will complete your procedure by closing and cleaning your incisions.

Benefits of Saline Implants

Patients who choose to receive saline implants can enjoy a range of unique benefits, including:

  • Minimized health risks: In the event that a saline implant ruptures, patients will typically know immediately and the body can absorb the saltwater without any ill effects.
  • Smaller incisions: Saline implants are inserted empty, so they can often be placed through smaller incisions than pre-filled silicone types.
  • More flexible sizing: Since the implants are filled during treatment, Dr. Berbari can make adjustments to precisely customize their size. This can be especially helpful for patients who are seeking to correct breast asymmetry.
  • Lower age requirements: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires patients undergoing breast augmentation with silicone implants to be at least 22 years old, but saline implants are available for women 18 years and older.

In addition, saline implants also offer all of the typical benefits of breast augmentation, including a shapelier figure and boosted confidence. Dr. Berbari can further detail the advantages of saline implants for your particular case during your initial consultation.

Risks

Saline implants are generally considered safer than available alternatives because they require shorter incisions and do not pose any heath risks if they rupture. However, saline implants still have the same general surgical risks associated with breast augmentation, including:

  • Soreness and discomfort following surgery, which typically dissipates over time
  • Numbing or heightened sensitivity in and around the nipples
  • Capsular contracture, which is a condition that occurs when scar tissue constricts around an implant
  • Infection

You can minimize your risk of complications by choosing an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Berbari.
