About Our Little Rock, Arkansas Cosmetic Surgery Center
The Operating Suite
Going to the operating room is not a normal experience for most of us. Dr. Yee and all of the professional staff caring for you recognize the natural anxiety with which most patients approach this step in the process. We believe a description of the surgery experience is helpful to those considering surgery.
Your surgery will be performed here at our state-of-the-art Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery center at 12600 Cantrell Road. The Surgery Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. Specialists using modern equipment and techniques will attend to you. The team includes a board-certified nurse anesthetist, a trained operating room technician and registered nurses in charge of the operating room.
When you arrive at our Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery center, you will be escorted to the surgery suite. You will be asked to change into a gown and robe and will be given foot covers. Dr. Yee and the nurse anesthetist will meet with you before you enter the operating suite. This is the time for final surgical planning; it is also when we will do basic preparation or draw on your skin as needed. There will be time for last minute questions.
Once you enter the operating room, the staff will do everything they can to make you feel secure. You will feel comfortable on our deeply padded operating table, and the nurse or nurse anesthetist will start an intravenous drip in your arm. At the same time, to ensure your safety, our staff will connect you to monitoring devices. Medicines that will make you drowsy will flow through the tubing into a vein in your arm.
Our Surgical Facilities
The Recovery Room
When your surgery has been completed at our Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery center, and your dressings are in place, you will be moved to the recovery room. You will be connected to monitoring equipment constantly. During this period, a fully trained recovery room nurse will take care of you and remain with you at all times. The registered nurses in the recovery room are specially certified for advanced cardiac life support.
Your stay in the recovery room at our Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery center will last approximately one hour, depending on how soon you are ready to leave. Most patients are fully awake within 30-60 minutes after surgery, but may not remember much about their stay in the recovery room.
Post Surgery Arrangements at Home
Patients must arrange for someone to bring them to and from our Little Rock, Arkansas cosmetic surgery center. It is very important that patients make arrangements for family/friends to stay with them for post operative care. However, if these arrangements can’t be made, we can possibly arrange for outside patient care that is made available through our office.
