Cosmetic Surgery Requires an Accredited Surgical Facility
So why should you make sure that if you are going to have surgery, any surgery, but perhaps most importantly cosmetic surgery, the facility in which you are about to trust your future happiness or even your life is nationally accredited? (I separated cosmetic surgery because it is perhaps the least regulated of surgical subspecialties (vying with pain clinics and a few others for special mention as buyer-beware clinics or in the immortal words of the philosopher P.T. Barnum “There is a sucker born every minute.”).
There are several reasons to choose an accredited surgical facility. First, consistent with Mr. Kleinman's advice good doctors tend to congregate with good doctors and accredited surgical centers have criteria for privileging doctors that an unaccredited medical office does not. Second, accrediting bodies have a stringent list of criteria that the surgical facility must meet in order to be accredited. These criteria include sterile preparation of instruments, records of documentation of the protocols of the center, and most importantly the ability to sustain the life of a patient should a crisis arise.
The three main accreditors of ASCs are American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (Accreditation Association or AAAHC) and The Joint Commission. Ask for them and if there are any doubts call the agency to double check that the facility in question is up to date. If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure this certainly should be a priority.
