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.

Rhinoplasty Nose SURGERY GATINEAU

Nose reshaping surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is a procedure our Gatineau practice offers to patients who wish to achieve a nose shape that better complements their facial profile. With this facial cosmetic surgery procedure, Dr. Patricia Berbari can change the size, shape, and contour of your nose, enhancing your entire facial appearance. If you feel self-conscious about the shape or size of your nose, contact our Gatineau practice to learn if rhinoplasty is right for you.

General Information

Nasal deformities may be accidental or hereditary. In some ethnic groups, for example, the nose may be larger or have a bump, without ever having been injured. Nose reconstructive surgery is typically performed from inside your nose. Dr. Berbari sedates her patients using local or general anesthesia for one to two hours, then makes incisions inside the nostrils, sometimes incising the septum between the nostrils. Our outstanding surgical team can change your nasal bone and cartilage in several ways. Using cartilage that has been taken from your ear or from deep inside your nose, Dr. Berbari can make minor alterations to the shape and size your nose. By using bone grafts or cosmetic implants, our skilled surgical team can meticulously re-structure or augment large portions your nose.

As with all procedures we offer, surgery is preceded by an extensive consultation in which Dr. Berbari will note your specific goals to create a treatment plan that can produce the results you desire. It is important to set realistic goals for your nose reshaping surgery. If your case requires especially complex care, we may refer you to a specialist who dedicates his or her time to effectively treating severe cases.

Advantages of Rhinoplasty

Gatineau plastic surgeon Patricia Berbari uses this nose reshaping procedure to help people who have been injured, need to improve their breathing, or want to correct birth defects. The procedure can also prove greatly beneficial for patients who want to:

  • Slim their nostrils
  • Raise or define the tip of their nose
  • Modify their bone or nose cartilage
  • Straighten the bridge of their nose
  • Alter the angle between your nose and lips

Risks & Complications 

All surgical procedures, including rhinoplasty, involve a degree of risk. Infection is rare and the amount of bruising and swelling depends on the extent of the operation (whether bones were displaced or major changes were made). Pain does not last long, as the nose is numb.

Recovery

A patients nose will be packed (with gauze) for twenty-four hours, following surgery, to minimize bleeding. A splint will also be placed on the nasal bridge for 7 to 10 days, following treatment.

It is important to note that swelling may last from 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on the characteristics of the skin and the extent of the operation. As well, the tip of the nose may remain hard and must therefore be massaged to soften up the tissues. Some patients use lymphatic drainage to speed up healing.
