About the Outpatient Surgery Center
When considering plastic surgery nothing is more important than your safety. For this reason Dr. Cruise performs all of his procedures at the highest accredited surgical facility: Newport Beach Center for Surgery in Fashion Island, Newport Beach. The NBCS has been established and accredited in 2002. This can be verified at www.aaahc.org.
Loved ones who bring you to surgery can either wait in the comfortable waiting area or go across the street to stroll around, shop or eat at the beautiful outdoor Fasion Island. When you are ready to go home, NBCS will call your family member or friend and have them come back over to the facility to pick you up.

Planning Your Surgery
The ambulatory surgery center offers the following guidelines for a pleasant and safe stay. The following information is recommended for the safety and protection of our patients.
- Make Transportation arrangements to and from the Center. Arrange for an adult to be with you for the first 24 Hours after your surgery.
- Notify your surgeon if you should develop changes in your health status prior to surgery (cough, fever, sore throat, flu symptoms).
- After midnight, the day before the procedure, do not have anything to drink or eat (even water), unless instructed by your physician or anesthesiologist. Failure to follow these instructions may result in cancellation of your surgery.
Prior to Your Arrival
- Dr. Cruise’s office and/or anesthesiologist will call you the day before your surgery to answer any questions.
- Arrive at the Center one to one and half hour (as instructed at your pre-op) prior to your scheduled surgery.
- Bathe at home. Do not apply cosmetics, lotions, creams or powders to your skin.
- Remove contact lenses, cosmetics and jewelry.
- Dentures should be worn but may be removed in the operating room.
- Your clothes should be loose-fitting and buttoned in front rather than pulled over the head.
Day of Surgery
A member of our staff will greet you and guide you through your admitting forms. Please bring your I. D. and Medical insurance card. Don't forget your glasses.
