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.

I wanted to feel sexy again. I had nursed my 3 babies a year each. But now my kids are older I wanted to feel sexy again. My breast lost a lot of volume, and hung quite low. I didn't want a lot of scaring so I opted not to Have a lift. I liked the idea of going above the muscle, and no lift. Quick recovery, and minimal scaring. I had enough breast tissue that with implants in place my breast felt completely natural. Without the lift my breast naturally have a tear drop shape to them.  I am very pleased with my results.

I am 23 and a mother of one 5 year old (breastfed 8 months) although my breast were not sagging they were small and my body wasn't proportioned. Now I am 8 months and my breasts feel great, they feel very real and you generally can't tell if they are fake when you touch them :) my scars are hidden in the crease of my breasts. I am VERY happy with my choice to undergo breast augmentation and would do it all over again :) dr Berbari and her team are wonderful and always there if you need something

Which Areas Can This Treatment Enhance?

When you meet with our plastic surgeon, be prepared to discuss specific concerns related to your body. Many patients considering mommy makeover surgery want to improve:

Flat or Sagging Breasts

Many mothers, especially those who breastfed, are dissatisfied with changes in their bust. A breast lift can address sagging while breast augmentation can restore lost volume and a perky, youthful look. A breast lift can easily be combined with implants.

Stubborn Fat Deposits

Even if you have lost weight that you gained during pregnancy, you might find that unresponsive fat deposits remain. Liposuction can refine the tummy, upper thighs, or virtually any area. However, this procedure is not a substitute for healthy weight loss.

Protruding Abdomen

Many women are left with separated abdominal muscles after pregnancy, which results in a protruding abdomen that cannot be changed with diet or exercise. The only way to correct this problem is with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

Excess Skin

Stretched, loose skin can develop on the stomach after pregnancy, and this concern can also be addressed with a tummy tuck. You might choose to include an arm lift or thigh lift in your mommy makeover if these areas also have excess skin.

Mommy Makeovers Can Also Include Vaginal Rejuvenation

Some mothers experience a difficult delivery or tearing that changes the appearance of the vagina. Others simply have always wanted smaller labia and find this is the right time to undergo labiaplasty. Our board-certified plastic surgeon offers both labiaplasty and pubic lifts with SmartLipo™ to rejuvenate the vagina and the surrounding area.

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. I highly recommend Dr Berbari!

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!!!

Understanding Risks & Complications

Combining procedures can increase the likelihood that you will experience a complication because the body will be under greater strain as it recovers. Dr. Berbari takes special care to only combine a number of treatments that can be safely performed at the same time. If you have extensive goals, she might recommend staging your care.

Our team, serving Ottawa, Gatineau, and patients throughout the world, wants you to be wholly confident in your skin, but your health and safety always come first. We will educate you on all the possible risks of mommy makeovers during your initial consultation. 

In general, the risks of plastic surgery include pain, infection, bleeding, numbness at the incision sites, scarring, and poor wound healing. If you receive breast implants, you could experience capsular contracture. There is also the possibility that you might be unhappy with your results and feel that they are underwhelming or overdone. As a patient, the best way to ensure the success of your procedure is to choose a reputable surgeon with excellent credentials

Ensuring Your Safety

Dr. Berbari takes several steps to minimize the risk of complications, including:

Honest Recommendations

Each treatment plan is tailored to the individual. If you express a desire to undergo several surgeries all at once, but the doctor knows it could be risky, she will always be upfront in her recommendation–even when the answer is "no."

Strict Screening Methods

Conditions like diabetes and lifestyle habits like heavy drinking or smoking make it more difficult for your body to heal after surgery. We need you to be in good health in order to give you the green light for undergoing cosmetic treatment.

Mommy Makeover Surgery

Dr. Patricia Berbari discusses the mommy makeover procedure. She talks about the different procedures that you can combine as part of your treatment plan. Come in for a consultation to decide what procedures you would like to have performed.

What to Expect during the Recovery Period

We understand that patients want to know what to expect concerning the length of their recovery period. However, the fact that this treatment can vary so widely from person to person that it makes it difficult to estimate without having a consultation. Full recovery from tummy tuck surgery, for example, can take up to two months with about two weeks home from work. After breast augmentation, most women can return to work after about one week. Once you decide exactly which options are right for you, Dr. Berbari can explain the recovery period in greater detail.
