But Dr. Patricia Berbari can help you look refreshed and rejuvenated by performing a facelift at her Gatineau, QC, practice.

Ready to restore definition to your facial features? Read on to learn how a facelift can help you reach your goals...

Facelift Facelift Surgery Gatineau

Turn Back Time

A facelift (or rhytidectomy) is not intended to make you look different. It is designed to make you look younger, yet age-appropriate. Dr. Berbari carefully customizes each rhytidectomy and discreetly places incisions to create natural-looking transformations. She can also further enhance these results by addressing skin blemishes with laser treatments and other nonsurgical solutions.

Improve Your Facial Contours

Excess skin and fatty deposits can make your face seem less defined, increase the appearance of jowls, and even make you look overweight. By tightening the underlying muscles and removing excess skin, a facelift can help your forehead, face, and jawline look smoother and more defined.

Boost Your Confidence

If you have deep wrinkles throughout your face or jowls under your cheeks, you might feel self-conscious when you look in the mirror. Each facelift is completely customized to correct your unique concerns. By addressing areas that you are unhappy with, you can enjoy a renewed sense of confidence.

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!

Our Signature Facelift

In this video, Dr. Patricia Berbari, discusses combining a facelift with other skin care treatments. Our signature facelift involves multiple treatments. This could include lasers and neurotoxins.

Combining a Facelift with Other Procedures

A facelift is a great start in the process of rejuvenating your features. If you want more comprehensive cosmetic enhancement, you can combine this treatment with other procedures offered at the Centre Chirurgical De La Capitale, such as: 

If you are concerned about the look of your neck, breasts, or body, you can share these concerns with Dr. Berbari during your face lift consultation. Based on this discussion, she can determine which cosmetic surgery treatments might complement your face lift in order to realize your goals

Are You a Good Candidate for This Surgical Procedure?

Do You Have Realistic Expectations?

Your expectations and objectives for your face lift will influence the perceived success of your surgery. For this reason, Dr. Berbari will take ample time to listen to your goals before tailoring your treatment plan. It is important to remember that drastic improvement - not perfection - is what we provide. Dr. Berbari places emphasis on patient education and thorough pre-operative examinations and discussions. Together, you and Dr. Berbari will set realistic, achievable goals before undergoing the restorative procedure. 

Are You in Good Overall Health?

No plastic surgery procedure is without risk, but being in good general health will help you enjoy a safe, successful procedure Dr. Berbari carefully screens each candidate for medical conditions that can increase the risk of complications. If you are a smoker, she will advise you to quit before surgery. In addition to increasing your risk of complications, smoking can prematurely age the skin and affect the results of your procedure. 

Latest Technology & Advanced Techniques

Dr. Berbari has been performing facelifts since 2001, and she uses the latest training and technology to perform safe face lift procedures with outstanding results.

Dr. Berbari prefers a technique that yields natural-looking, longer-lasting results compared to the outdated traditional method, which can leave the face looking frozen, tight or windswept. Dr. Berbari uses the SMAS (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system) technique, which places renewed tension on the muscle and tissue under the surface of your skin rather than the skin itself.  The SMAS technique targets the lower half of your face and addresses the jowls, neck, and facial muscles.

For your privacy and convenience, you will undergo facelift surgery at our on-site surgical center. This fully accredited surgical center is complete with two operating rooms and the latest technology.

Will My Results Look Natural?

Many patients are interested in using plastic surgery to look younger, but are afraid that their results won't look natural. 

Dr. Berbari does not want to give patients an "operated" look. She doesn't want you to look different. She simply wants you to look like a rested, refreshed, and rejuvenated version of your best self. During your consultation at our Gatineau office, she will share many before and after photos with you, allowing you to see how our patients have achieved natural-looking enhancement with a facelift. She will also describe the uniquely advanced face lift techniques she uses to create natural-looking cosmetic surgery results.

What to Expect When Undergoing a Facelift


We pride ourselves on our in-depth consultations, which allow us to give patients the information they need to feel confident about their face lift and results. By carefully screening each facelift candidate, we can ensure that the results consistently meet expectations.


Unlike other practices in Gatineau and Ottawa, we do not use general anesthesia for a face lift. We help men and women relax by administering a gentler form of sedation that also offers reduced side effects.

After administering general anesthesia, Dr. Berbari will map out the incision placement in discreet portions of your face, such as the hairline, temple region, ear, and lower portion of your scalp. By cautiously placing incisions in discreet areas, around folds of your skin, or on natural creases, our surgical team can artistically camouflage scars, making them practically invisible to others.

Tightening Tissue

Next, Dr. Berbari will begin to tighten the internal layers of tissue that lay beneath the surface of your skin. Then, she will carefully trim away extra skin and suture your incisions back together.

Recovering from Surgery

Recovery from a face lift is relatively fast. Thanks to the new techniques used by Dr. Berbari, most men and women have very little bruising and only need about 10 to 15 days of downtime.

During the first 24 hours, we will place drainage tubes to help prevent fluid build-up. In some cases, patients can begin enjoying the results of their surgery after just one week. After the procedure, Dr. Berbari sees patients two times per week to ensure that they are healing properly.

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.

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!
