Patient Resources

Patient Coordinator

Our patient coordinator, Kelly Wilson, works closely with our patients and Dr. Yamahata to optimize communication before and after plastic surgery in Sacramento and Granite Bay. She provides information on the doctor, the practice, and your upcoming procedure. She offers pre-surgery and basic post-op instructions, fee information, and schedules your surgery. After surgery, our medical assistants are available to answer any questions regarding your recovery. The medical assistants can be reached through our main line at Sacramento at  (916) 929-1833 or Granite Bay at (916) 773-5559. You can reach Kelly at (916) 569-5243.

We do require an adult to pick you up after surgery and stay with you for 24 hours. The person who stays with you does not need to be in the medical field. Please ask Kelly for information regarding caregivers and available agencies that provide home healthcare.

Compression Garments

Certain procedures require you to wear a compression garment after surgery. We provide certain garments during surgery. Your patient coordinator will instruct you on anything you will need prior to your surgery. We suggest that you purchase your garments in time to bring them to your pre-op visit. The garment must fit comfortably and not compromise circulation. It must provide compression above and below the highest and lowest areas of surgery. For example, if you have liposuction of your thighs, the garment must extend to your knees. Garments are available at:
