In the Operating Room
Our Out-patient Surgery Center
The AAAASF has four classes of Operating Rooms: class A, class B, and class C-M, and class C. Our Facility is classified as a Class C, the *highest level of certification* possible with the AAAASF. Class C status is only awarded to Facilities which are certified to monitor all types of anesthesia. There are also very strict criterias for OR size (must be 400 sq ft), air filtration systems, infection control, cleaning protocols, safety protocols, physician and staffing credentials and other parameters. There are only 8 Class C Surgery Centers in the State of Maryland. In order to attain and re-certify with the AAAASF, 100% compliance is demanded. Facilities must satisfy every single criteria for certification. If any single criteria is not met, than they are denied accreditation.
Additionally, our Facility is Medicare Certified, meeting the standards set by the U.S. government.
In the Operating Room
Our Operating Room is more than 400 ft sq, allowing our surgical team to have generous room for equipment and additional surgical team members. The entire operating room suite and recovery room are equipped with back up power generators in the event of power outage.
Fat Transfer Procedure
Dr. Rodriguez has been performing fat transfer procedures for ten years. Fat is extracted from unwanted areas like your stomach , processed, and carefully re-injected into areas for rejuvenation. Common areas for fat transfer involve the face, buttocks, breast, and hands. The newest frontier of plastic surgery involves extracting purified stem cells from the processed fat.
Experienced Surgical Team
Dr. Rodriguez has been operating with many of the same nurses and surgical technicians for over ten years. They have performed many procedures hundreds of times together with the same staff. Our Facility only uses Board Certified Anesthesiologists.
Both Medicare and the AAAASF have strict protocols for infection control, hygiene and cleanliness in the operating room suite. Dr. Rodriguez is shown here at the scrub station, prior to entering the operating room.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Surgery
The endoscopic browlift is a 1 1/2 hour procedure which lifts the brow to it's natural position. This results in a rested, refreshed, and natural facial rejuvenation. This is a more permanent option than botox and gives an even better result. Recovery time for this procedure is seven days.
Brazilian Butt Lift Fat Injections
The brazilian butt lift gives you a more prominent buttocks and a beautiful, sculpted body. Thin is out—and curvy is in! Dr. Rodriguez specializes in fat grafting techniques and has performed hundreds of procedures.
