"VERY happy with my breast augmentation!" 5-Star Reviews
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.View On RealSelf
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 somethingView On RealSelf

"I had an amazing experience!" Reviews by More Satisfied Patients
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!View On Google
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!!!View On Google
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
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
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.
