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.

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.

Rejuvenate Your Features and Contour Your Figure with Facial Fat Transfer

By undergoing facial fat transfer with Gatineau-area plastic surgeon Dr. Patricia Berbari, you can experience improved body contours and revitalized facial features. After removing unwanted fat deposits using liposuction, we will purify the cells by washing and centrifugation and then inject them into your face to add volume, improve facial proportions, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. Contact our practice today to learn more about this sophisticated cosmetic procedure.

Benefits of Facial Fat Transfer

Patients who undergo facial fat transfer can experience a range of benefits:

  • The outcomes from facial fat transfer can last for years or even become permanent.
  • Since the procedure involves the use of your body’s own cells to plump and revitalize your face, it can provide incredibly natural-looking results.
  • When transferring fat cells, stem cells are also transferred, these embryonic dormant cells are mixed with the fat cells in your body. Stem cells are multi-potent cells that will transform in young skin cells giving you a more youthful skin texture. Three months after the procedure, you will notice a change in your skin glow.
  • The amount of fat transferred is not limited.
  • Facial fat transfer can be combined with other injectable treatments for even more dramatic outcomes.

You may be a good candidate for facial fat transfer if you are in good overall health and seeking to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles such as smile lines, marionette's lines, or even scars. In addition, you must have excess fat deposits in your midsection, legs, arms, or another area. Dr. Berbari will examine your face and body, review your medical records, and discuss your goals during your initial consultation to determine if this procedure is right for you.

The Procedure

To begin your facial fat transfer, Dr. Berbari will first perform liposuction using one of several techniques. Most patients have excess fat removed from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, or thighs. Once this step is complete, she will close and clean your incisions. Next, Dr. Berbari will use a special device known as a centrifuge to purify the fat so only the healthiest cells remain. She will then use a special needle to inject the purified fat and enhance your facial features.

Risks and Complications

Although facial fat transfer has been performed safely on countless patients, like all forms of surgery, it does carry certain risks. These include:

  • Infection
  • Skin, tissue, or nerve damage
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Seroma, or fluid accumulation beneath the tissue

Dr. Berbari will draw upon extensive experience and use an exceptional attention to detail to minimize these risks.

Recovery

Facial fat transfer patients typically heal quickly after treatment. You will be advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities for up to two weeks, though you may be able to return to work within one week of the procedure. Treatment areas may bruise or swell temporarily, but we can prescribe painkillers to help alleviate any discomfort.
