The hype about accreditation
- Posted on: Aug 23 2019
Have you considered every aspect of your plastic surgery? You might think you have. However, something that easily slips people’s minds is where their surgery is taking place.
Not all plastic surgeons are alike. Some don’t have in-office surgery centers. They might opt to do surgeries strictly in a hospital setting. Others may not have accredited surgery centers.
Why Kovanda is the best
The team at Kovanda Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Institute assures you they work to provide the best surgical center. Kovanda’s in-office surgery center is AAAASF (The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities) Accredited. On top of this Dr. Kovanda is a board-certified plastic surgeon.
What does accreditation mean?
Accreditation proves that Kovanda and his staff make you their number one priority. Centers that are accredited show dedication to patient safety and standardized quality, according to AAAASF.
AAAASF is the “gold standard” in accreditation for its high facility standards. These standards ensure the surgery center is well kept and safe for patients. Regular updates and revisions are made to keep everything current.
Benefits of in-office plastic surgery
Hospitals can seem like a daunting place to get a voluntary surgery. Kovanda Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Institute has a lovely and comforting office that feels much cozier and spa-like than a hospital.
Dr. Kovanda also takes great care to choose only the best people to be on his team. Performing surgeries in office allows him to work with only the best of the best.
Another reason to choose Kovanda’s surgery center is because of the quality of the facility. Infections are a risk when entering a hospital. In Kovanda’s facilities there is lower risk for infections.
What do patients think?
Ashley had her abdominoplasty in Dr. Kovanda’s surgery center. The most notable aspect of her surgery journey was the atmosphere of the office and its staff. “They were all very comforting and made me feel prepared before surgery,” she said.
Another thing that stood out was Dr. Kovanda’s dedication to her concerns. She wanted to make sure her tummy tuck scar was as discreet as possible. Dr. Kovanda offered for her to bring a bikini in with her, to ensure the scar would be low enough to cover.
She preferred the surgery center over a hospital setting because it was more private. Being in Dr. Kovanda’s office she was able to recover and wake up in a private room with his staff devoted to helping her. “It was quiet and more calming,” Ashley said.
Overall, Ashley is glad she went to Dr. Kovanda for her procedure. “I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results post-surgery.
Exceptions to note
Some patient’s unique needs may require a hospital setting. Examples of this are high blood pressure, diabetes, a BMI higher than 30, etc. However, every person is unique, so, it is up to Dr. Kovanda’s discretion.
