We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.




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.


          Long-term follow-ups will resume as of June 22 2020 and will be carried out by telemedicine. Appointments will be given after July 6 2020 as needed.





           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.



           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.



          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.

About Clitoral Hood Reduction

Excess skin can make a woman's clitoris protrude or appear out of proportion, causing feelings of self-consciousness and discomfort in and out of the bedroom. A clitoral hood reduction by Dr. Patricia Berbari in Gatineau, Québec, can resolve this problem, and will be combined with a labiaplasty to achieve the best results. Dr. Berbari is a highly experienced surgeon offering complete vaginal rejuvenation and other confidence-boosting procedures. Our plastic surgery practice uses small-incision and laser techniques to help patients achieve feminine enhancements with minimal recovery and downtime.

What is Clitoral Hood Reduction?

Whether due to genetics, past trauma or even childbirth, some women feel embarrassed by the appearance of their clitoris and vulva. The clitoral hood plays an important role, protecting the sensitive erogenous zone from unwanted friction and stimulation, but the tissue can be overly prominent in some women. A hood reduction (also called hoodectomy or clitoropexy) can alter the size and shape of excess or distorted skin around the clitoris. 

Reasons for Treatment

An enlarged clitoris with excess tissue may cause physical discomfort, and many women feel this compromises their feminine shape. When the clitoral hood is out of proportion, there may be tell-tale bulges in fitted clothing. Some women feel extremely self-conscious in a bathing suit or clingy attire, and also may feel hesitant with a sexual partner. Some women feel so self-conscious about their appearance, they feel too inhibited to enjoy sex. Excess hood tissue can also cause physical discomfort, such as irritation and pain in tight jeans. There may also be some sexual dysfunction when an oversized clitoral hood does not retract sufficiently, which can delay or prevent orgasm.

Surgery with Dr. Berbari

Dr. Berbari is sympathetic to the concerns of women who want to look and feel their best in clothing as well as during intimate interactions. She is easy to talk to and pleased to help patients meet their personal cosmetic surgery goals. Her complete vaginal rejuvenation procedures are meant to restore confidence and enhance your confidence and love life. A clitoropexy can leave you feeling more attractive and feminine, and you may enjoy the added benefit of more reliable and significant sexual responses.

Procedure Outline

A clitoral hood reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure at the same time as labiaplasty, removing and reshaping all genital tissue for optimal results. Once tissue is excised and reshaped, the site is sealed with dissolvable sutures. Depending upon your needs and goals, Dr. Berbari can remove excess tissue, adjust the projection and position of the clitoris, and make it appear smaller within the vulva. In all cases, maintaining or improving function is of primary importance. Dr. Berbari works carefully to prevent nerve damage and ensure sensation is in no way compromised. This procedure is typically completed in about an hour, and most patients remain very comfortable with local anesthesia. However, we can provide further sedation for your comfort if necessary.

What to Expect After Surgery

Hoodectomy recovery is generally quick, with minimal bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Healing in this area is expected to be complete without visible scarring. You can return to normal activities within a few days, but should expect to avoid strenuous activity and sexual activity for about a month. Patients can feel confident in new, aesthetically pleasing contours that look symmetrical and feminine. Many patients also experience greatly enhanced body confidence and improved sexual function.
