About Our Surgical Center
Most of the cosmetic surgery procedures that our surgeons offer can be performed at the Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. surgical center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is incorporated within our main office. Our AAAASF-accredited facility includes three fully equipped operating rooms along with individual preparation and recovery areas to ensure maximum patient safety and comfort before and after cosmetic surgery.
Complete anesthesia services are provided by Darin Hill, CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, and head of Anesthesia Services), presently providing the superb anesthesia services that MPS has offered since 1991. Darin says, “Anesthesia care at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. has been refined to a degree that offers the best possible experience: significantly less nausea and discomfort than hospital anesthesia, with individualized one-on-one attention, safety, and monitoring. We provide this care with respect, kindness, and confidentiality for each and every patient.” The highest quality anesthesia medications are used in every surgery so that each patient has the most comfortable and safe surgical experience possible.
Darin Hill, CRNA and his staff of equally well-trained and experienced CRNA colleagues have years of experience with our cosmetic surgery patients and each provides one-on-one care and full monitoring throughout every operative procedure. Our practice utilizes the most effective, high-quality anesthetic medicines for your surgery, as well as complete continuous monitoring of blood pressure, EKG, pulse, temperature, oxygen in your bloodstream, exhaled carbon dioxide, and fluids during surgery and through your recovery. Since we utilize intravenous anesthetic medications rather than inhalation anesthetics (gas and nitrous oxide) for virtually all cases, our post-operative nausea and vomiting rate is significantly lower than the hospital and surgicenter rate of 7-28 percent. For the past decade, we have tracked our own patients after surgery, including complex and longer operations, and our present nausea and vomiting rate is between 1.5 and 2.5 percent for all cosmetic surgeries. Our team of CRNAs is the best of the best, using state-of-the-art techniques to help you feel better, do better, bruise less, have fewer bleeding concerns, and have a much more comfortable experience overall. Many patients who have had anesthesia experiences elsewhere that were less than ideal have found the anesthesia care given at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. to be the best they have ever received.
Besides the three operating rooms, our cosmetic surgery facility incorporates treatment and minor procedure rooms, aesthetic suites, post-operative massage therapy area, and cosmetic and surgical laser services. If they wish, post-operative patients may utilize a separate waiting area and a separate exit for added privacy. Our surgical center is evaluated and accredited annually by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and has been in compliance with AAAASF standards since the surgery center was expanded in 1991.
Complete skin and body care, including facial peels, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, Juvéderm® laser hair removal, and both pre- and post-operative cosmetic care is offered at Carillon Clinic’s two locations: across the hall from MPS’ main office facility, and in Maple Grove.
Cosmetic surgery procedures requiring overnight or inpatient care must be performed at Minneapolis, Minnesota-area hospitals; Dr. Richard H. Tholen and Dr. Douglas L. Gervais have full surgical privileges at several local hospitals for this purpose.
Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. is one of the few cosmetic surgery practices in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area with a complete outpatient surgery center on-site so that most patients do not need to visit an outside hospital. Most cosmetic surgery procedures offered at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. can be performed safely in one of our three operating rooms. Our clinical and surgical facility includes multiple other patient-specific and purpose-directed areas, including preoperative and recovery areas, designed to make our patients as comfortable as possible in a confidential setting.
