CG Cosmetic Surgery | AAAASF

AAAASF Logo

CG Cosmetic Surgery has been accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities.

CG Cosmetic Surgery is accredited by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), which was established in 1980.

Its main goal was to improve the quality of medical and surgical care. AAAASF Accreditation is not required by most states and in fact, a majority of ambulatory surgery facilities are not accredited with AAAASF. This means they operate without inspection or review and patients run the risk that their care may be compromised in some way.

Patient safety is the main goal of AAAASF.

Today, there is a trend in outpatient surgery occurring in physicians’ offices. What’s worse, the procedures they are performing are not in a controlled setting and typically, not in the physician’s field of study. These factors contribute to surgical complications that can easily be avoided. Now, a growing number of states are recognizing the need for mandatory accreditation. The AAAASF, however, continues to be the forefront of these efforts.

When having surgery, there is more to consider than just choosing the surgeon.

Patients need to make sure that their chosen facility will assure their safety in all aspects of their experience. Fortunately, patients can rest assured that any AAAASF accredited facility has met stringent national standards in the following areas: equipment; personnel and surgeon credentials; and operating room safety. The AAAASF sets the “Gold Standard” for patient care, ensuring that treatment received at any facility with this accreditation has met strict requirements for quality and standard of care.

CG Cosmetic Surgery | The Importance of Board Certification

Looking for a plastic surgeon?

CG Cosmetic Surgery can help. Choosing a surgeon who is Board Certified ensures that you will be receiving medical care from a doctor who is more than qualified. This certification confirms that a medical professional has taken the required steps to provide outstanding patient care in their field. Under the American Board of Medical Specialties, physicians can become certified in 24 different organizations depending on their specialty. The most respected plastic surgery board is the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

 

How does a doctor become Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?

To become Board Certified, the American Board of Plastic Surgery requires that doctors have graduated from an esteemed university, have completed five years of training as a resident in an accredited program, and have spent two years learning under a skilled plastic surgeon. Furthermore, the doctor then must pass a series of exams that test their knowledge of content, as well as written and oral skills.

Why is the American Board of Plastic Surgery different than other organizations for plastic surgeons?

The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the most extensive program, which guarantees optimal patient satisfaction. Unlike other organizations, this board certifies the specialty in its entirety, including the head, trunk, extremities, and neck. Essentially, the surgeon is fully qualified to perform surgery on any part of your body.
