The most important aspect of any surgery, especially one being performed in a doctor's office, is patient safety. A recent article about fatalities occurring in doctor's office procedures (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203946904574300971306299860.html) is very concerning. The article highlights the need for regulation among office procedures.
Currently, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) require members to be accredited by a national or state recognized accrediting agency or organization. Here at the Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center, we are accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). The ASPS reports that "plastic surgery procedures performed in accredited surgical facilities by board-certified plastic surgeons have an excellent safety record."
At SMAC, we go beyond even these requirements, by using only a board certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Kenneth Kushner, during all of our in office surgeries and during preoperative patient evaluation.
Patient safety is a top priority at the Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center.
