Q: Are there specific requirements for doctors of an NYC accredited plastic surgery facility?

A: A doctor at an accredited facility is only allowed to perform procedures which he or she is qualified to perform in a hospital. A licensed plastic surgeon who has attending privileges at a nearby hospital can perform the same procedures in an ambulatory surgery facility as long as the procedure does not last more than 6 hours and will not lead to significant blood loss.
