In Florida, legislation has been proposed to ban liposuctions in unregulated surgical offices. This comes as a response to several deaths in the state. The proposal passed in the state Senate and is now being discussed in the state House. Many local plastic surgeons are hopeful that the bill will pass. In the state of California, there are more restrictions for plastic and cosmetic surgery, specifically liposuction. Riverside men and women should still be careful to ensure they are working with a credible, board certified doctor.

“On a national level, plastic surgeons are coming together to talk about the importance of board certification,” says Dr. Eichenberg. “It’s not just about the best results, it’s about working with a doctor who can weigh the risks associated with elective surgery.” The Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center is also nnationally accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) to ensure a patient’s safety.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure you can elect to have when you need to remove unwanted fat. It is very successful and safe under the guidance of a licensed and board certified plastic surgeon. In the U.S., board certification shows that your doctor has been through extensive training and has years of experience focusing on their specific field. The problems consumers face today is that any licensed surgeon is currently legally able to perform any surgery, including plastic surgeries. In addition to checking the credentials of your surgeon, you should know if the surgical center is accredited as well.

“As a board-certified plastic surgeon, my staff and I are dedicated to exemplifying what a facility should provide for their patients” says Dr. Eichenberg. “I think legislation is the next step towards educating prospective patients.”
