We feel that preparing for surgery will be a team effort. We are going to do our part, and we also want you to assume an active role to do your part. We have used the latest and the most up-to-date information to convey as much knowledge for you as possible. Also, during this time of pandemic, we have all been in this together. We are with you on preparing for your surgery.

Here are some steps that are vital for this preparation:

Step 1: Preparing For Your Surgery

To help minimize risk of asymptomatic spread of coronavirus during your procedure, we ask that you:

  • Continue to socially distance to protect yourself from others in the community.
  • Follow physical distancing and handwashing guidelines. This applies to the person who will be bringing you to and from surgery as well.
  • Avoid contact with others or leaving your home as much as possible prior to surgery.
  • Check for symptoms daily prior to surgery and notify us if you have any of the following:
    • Fever ≥ 38.0 C (100.5 F) last 24 hours
    • New respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough, shortness of breath, respiratory distress, sore throat)
    • Chills
    • Muscle pain
    • New loss of taste or smell
  • We are no longer testing all patient before the operation.

    Step 2: Stay Flexible

    Your surgery is currently scheduled to proceed on the planned date and time, but we also must be flexible to deal with any potential changes in your health. We will support you if things change, and we also promise to keep you informed with up-to-date information with what is happening here at EPSC, as well as keeping your best interests and safety at the forefront.

    Step 3: Understand What To Expect The Day Of Surgery Due To Covid-19 ChangesFor patients with scheduled surgery at Egrari Plastic Surgery Center:

    Upon arrival via the private elevator, both you and your caregiver are to wear a mask at the designated mask station. Upon entering our facility, you will be escorted to the pre-op room, where both you and your caregiver will be health-screened via questionnaire. As an extra layer of protection, you will notice our entire staff will be wearing surgical masks. If not already completed, you will sign the Covid-19 consent prior to surgery. You are to continue to wear your mask until escorted to the operating room, where the surgical team will direct you on how and when to remove it.

    Once escorted to the operating room, your caregiver will be asked to leave the facility until notified by Dr. Egrari at the completion of surgery. Our surgical staff will keep your designated point person informed of your progress.

    Caregivers are required to wear the mask supplied to them when returning to the facility. Within your recovery goodie bag, we will supply you with a face mask that is to be worn upon exit and at your follow-up appointments.

    Step 4: Post-Surgery

    After surgery you will be in an immunocompromised state, so please adhere to the following:

      • Please bring and wear the masks you and your caregiver were provided to your follow-up visits
      • For all patients, we only recommend necessary travel; however, if you have specific questions, we will be happy to discuss our guidelines.
      • Due to your immunocompromised state after surgery, we recommend that you refrain from interacting with large indoor groups for one week after surgery.
      • You may bring one person with you during your post operative visits.

    Please know that we genuinely care about you and will do everything we can to provide you with the safest and best possible care experience. If you have any questions or concerns prior to your appointment day, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Although we have loosened some of the restrictions in our clinic, in the surgical unit, we continue to be vigilant.
