Our plastic surgeons and the operating room team perform most surgical procedures at the Marina Outpatient Surgery Center, located in Marina Del Rey, California. Serving Santa Monica, Long Beach, Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, this plastic surgery facility is fully accredited by American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) and all anesthesiologists are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology with training and certification in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Please request the name of the anesthesiologist assigned to your case to verify their board certification.
The AAAASF was established in 1980. Its primary mission is to ensure the highest quality patient care in the ambulatory surgery setting. Today, with more than 550 accredited outpatient surgical facilities, the not-for-profit AAAASF is the largest accrediting organization of its kind in the United States.
These days, there is more to having surgery than just selecting your surgeon.
AAAASF has designed an accrediting program to help provide patients with the assurance of safety and quality in all aspects of their outpatient surgery experience. To achieve this goal, every AAAASF-accredited ambulatory surgery facility must meet stringent national standards for equipment, operating safety, personnel and surgeon credentials. The experts at AAAASF know that maintaining safety and quality in the ambulatory surgery facility is a dynamic process, requiring constant review and revision of standards to reflect the current state-of-the-art. As the leading accrediting organization, AAAASF has developed the systems to effectively monitor and implement the latest advances in outpatient care delivery-advances that directly benefit patients. Our Los Angeles cosmetic surgery facility meets all of the AAAASF standards.
