FAQ for Plastic Surgery BEVERLY HILLS / LOS ANGELES
Hospital, Surgical Center, Office– does it matter where a surgeon performs surgery?
Where surgery is performed depends largely on the surgeon. In terms of safety and results, no surgical facility is inherently superior to any other. The American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities gives accreditation to facilities that have established and adopted standardized protocols and routines (similar to those used in hospitals). These facilities have been subjected to rigorous inspections that examine safety equipment and procedures (like backup power and emergency medications), office layout, staffing, record-keeping and a variety of other issues. Therefore, you may want to add “Accreditation” as something to consider when deciding on a Plastic Surgeon.
