Most outpatient procedures are carried out in our state of the art, office-based outpatient surgical facility, The Aesthetic Surgery Center. Our patients are made to feel comfortable in our quiet and lovely spa-like environment from the moment they come in, ensuring privacy and peace of mind.
Meeting the Highest Standards
Founded in 1995, the center is licensed as a Corporation by New York State. The facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Incorporated (AAAASF), a national accreditation program certifying to the medical and lay communities that a surgical facility meets nationally recognized standards.
To maintain this accreditation, facilities are meticulously inspected every three years by a certified surgeon inspector. Criteria include physical conformity of the operating and recovery rooms; adequacy and maintenance of monitoring equipment; emergency “crash cart” for airway control and updated intravenous medications administration; uniformity and consistency of medical records; program of quarterly assessment and peer review; employee standards and their record verification.
Unrestricted hospital privileges are held for each and every procedure performed at The Aesthetic Surgery Center. Additionally, the center is in compliance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA); National and Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) regulations; and National Fire Protection association (NFPA) standards.
Major facial reconstructive or microsurgical cases are performed at the prestigious Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC. Founded in 1852, The Mount Sinai Medical Center, a 1200 bed teaching hospital, is a tertiary center of excellence for facial reconstructive surgery and attracts patients from all over the world.
Transportation and Accommodations
For those needing hotel accommodations there are many fine hotels located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side that offer special rates for our patients. Our patient care coordinator, Ms. Nancy Slifer, will assist you with travel and hotel accommodations. Arrangements can be made for specialty trained plastic surgical nurses for home health care during the immediate postoperative period.
Nurses often meet the patients at the office prior to discharge and accompany the patient home or to the hotel.
