City Surgery Center at Kirby Plastic Surgery
City Surgery Center was designed and built within our state-of-the-art plastic surgery center and medical spa to deliver safe, high-quality care in a pleasant, relaxed, spa-like setting. Instead of heading to a hospital or other public surgical facility for your procedure, you can enjoy the privacy and luxury of our on-site operating suite.
The importance of operating room accreditation
A safe, certified operating room has important life-saving devices and safety measures in place, meets or exceeds hospital standards, and follows the highest standards for sterility. For an operating room to earn accreditation, its medical staff must also maintain the highest level of training and experience.
My post care nurse, office manager and the anesthesiologist were absolutely amazing!
There are few trusted accreditation organizations that verify an operating room is properly outfitted and meets these standards. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) specifically endorses accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Facilities (AAAASF), which is considered to be the gold standard for private operating room certification. City Surgery Center at Kirby Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth is pleased to have earned this esteemed AAAASF accreditation and maintains it yearly. City Surgery Center is the only private plastic surgery center in Fort Worth that has attained this certification.
I woke up feeling like I was in a spa.
She [my anesthesiologist] was absolutely amazing! She stayed by my side until I was able to go home.
How we prioritize your privacy & safety
You can expect the utmost in privacy and safety at City Surgery Center. Upon your arrival, you are escorted into the facility by our friendly, professional nurses, who will greet you and help you prepare for surgery. You will secure your belongings in your individual locker, and you may prefer to charge your phone during surgery using our hands-free charger in your locker. Our team of board-certified MD anesthesiologists will monitor you throughout your entire procedure, from start to finish. After your procedure, you will awaken in a private bed in the recovery suite, with your dedicated registered nurse. You will continue to recover here until you are ready to be escorted out of the facility via our private surgical suite exit, directly to your loved one’s car in our reserved parking area.
Our steps for enhancing your recovery
In order to provide her patients with the best possible care from their first consultation to their full recovery, Dr. Kirby and her surgical team have established Kirby Plastic Surgery’s Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols. The ERAS protocols provide individualized specific pain management guidelines for every plastic surgery procedure offered, with an emphasis on improving recovery while reducing narcotic use, and is based on years of first-hand clinical research. Depending on a patient’s specific needs, this protocol may involve prescribing a combination of controlled or OTC medications, and an intraoperative nerve block to help relax the muscles, block nerve pain, and reduce nausea before, during, and after surgery. The injection of numbing medication Dr. Kirby uses during a tummy tuck is called a Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) nerve block. It helps patients to help control their pain following surgery. So whether you are restoring your body to its pre-pregnancy beauty with a mommy makeover or enhancing your breasts with a breast augmentation, Dr. Kirby and her team can prescribe a custom pain management system to reduce your surgical stress, optimize your physical functioning, and facilitate your recovery.
