Accredited New Jersey Plastic Surgery Center Offers Safety and Infection Control
At Contemporary Plastic Surgery, a New Jersey plastic surgery practice, Dr. Robert Herbstman provides advanced surgical and non-invasive procedures in a fully accredited surgical center that is held to the highest standards of safety and infection control.
East Brunswick, New Jersey (June 2011) – At a time when the safety of surgical centers is being questioned by some hospital lobbyists, Contemporary Plastic Surgery is maintaining high standards of safety and infection control for cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation in New Jersey. The fully accredited on-site surgical facility offers a complete range of plastic surgery options using state-of-the-art-instruments and monitoring equipment.
"Our accredited surgical facility must meet strict national regulations for safety," says Dr. Robert Herbstman, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey. "Inspectors examine the building, the equipment used, the operating room – even the personnel's credentials are closely scrutinized to establish high standards of quality."
Dr. Herbstman is a certified inspector for the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF), a monitoring agency that implements standards of excellence and evaluates patient safety in independent surgery facilities. He explains that the advantages of choosing an accredited surgical center can benefit the patient in two ways: safety/infection control and economically.
"An accredited on-site surgical center enables people to avoid many of the overhead costs associated with a hospital visit," Dr. Herbstman says. "In addition, it allows for better flexibility and increased convenience because we can accommodate our patients' schedules more easily."
Safety, convenience, and savings are only part of the reasons why men and women choose Contemporary Plastic Surgery for cosmetic enhancements. Dr. Herbstman is known for his caring approach combined with advanced techniques for a wide range of New Jersey plastic surgery procedures. Contemporary Plastic Surgery offers many popular non-surgical treatments as well, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser skin resurfacing, and injectable fillers at their Skin Rejuvenation and Laser Center.
