The Surgery Center at YoungForever MedSpa, LLC, known as “DrYoungForever”, emphasizes its dedication to safety and quality with the receipt of accreditation from the not-for-profit American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). DrYoungForever has earned this industry gold standard after a thorough on-site evaluation of their new facility in Shavano Park.
AAAASF assesses a Surgery Center’s commitment to patient safety and quality of care by performing a regimented and lengthy inspection which was passed with flying colors. The staff at DrYoungForever are proud to be listed among the roughly 2,500 AAAASF-accredited institutions worldwide. With over 9,000 ambulatory surgery centers in the United States alone, it demonstrates that obtaining AAAASF accreditation is quite a prestigious accomplishment.
“While plastic surgery procedures can be done in a hospital, I have always strongly felt having your own surgery center provides the greatest flexibility, comfort and convenience for my patients. It also ensures very best in patient care, safety and satisfaction,” said Dr. Robert N. Young, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and owner. “This accreditation is simply one in a long list of reasons why patients can rest assured that they will receive the highest possible quality of care at my new facility.”
AAAASF requires 100 percent compliance with their accreditation standards. DrYoungForever earned the impressive endorsement after AAAASF’s Board Certified medical specialist inspected the new facility, completing a 130-page checklist. Facility surveyors are trained to analyze the entire facility including the physical environment, operating room, recovery room, sterilization room including techniques used and logs, surgery center policies and procedures, patient safety, OSHA and staff safety, medications, medical records, quality assessment, quality improvement, personnel, anesthesia, medical waste, generators, crash cart and emergency preparedness among other criteria. After the initial accreditation inspection survey, each accredited facility is re-evaluated through self-survey annually, with another on-site survey by a AAAASF inspector every three years.
The surgery center at DrYoungForever has been accredited as a Class C Ambulatory Surgical Center, which can provide general anesthesia and perform outpatient Plastic Surgery. Dr. Robert N. Young, founder of DrYoungForever, performs a variety of plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, corrective breast surgeries, liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift, tummy tuck, and facial surgeries such as facelift, neck lift, eyelid lift, chin and cheek implants and rhinoplasty, among others. Dr. Young has over 30 years experience enhancing San Antonio men and women. His new facility off 1604 in Shavano Park, is the second AAAASF facility he has designed, built and operated, and replaces his former Stone Oak surgery center.
