Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery


The Plastic Surgery Center

Dr. Law performs surgery in our Joint Commission and AAAASF accredited, state of the art free standing operating theater. The single story facility includes a private first floor entrance and a private waiting area for families to provide privacy for our discerning clientele. For inpatient procedures, we provide a complimentary overnight stay at the surgery center with medical observation to enhance patient comfort and to provide peace of mind to patients and their families.

All major surgical procedures performed at The Plastic Surgery Center are conducted under anesthesia provided by an experienced, board-certified MD anesthesiologist. Your anesthesia MD will evaluate you prior to surgery, accompany you to the O.R., remain with you throughout the entire surgical procedure, and will then accompany you to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (the PACU, aka the recovery room). Your anesthesia MD will remain on site until you have reached the point of recovery where continuous monitoring of vital signs is no longer required and you are close to being ready for discharge from The Plastic Surgery Center.

Joint Commission accreditation is truly a remarkable accomplishment. The Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations is a national organization that accredits hospitals and surgery centers. We are the only office based plastic surgery center in North Carolina that dually holds Joint Commission accreditation and AAAASF certification. At the heart of the accreditation process is the goal of creating and maintaining a culture of patient safety that is sustained at the highest level between accreditation surveys. Both accrediting organizations require ongoing evaluation of the environment of care. Compliance with accreditation standards must be continuously monitored. Credentials of all staff members and anesthesia providers must be verified and maintained. Regular updates and self-surveys are required during each three-year cycle.

Our extraordinary team of medical professionals hand-picked by Dr. Law will provide you with exceptional care before and after surgery. You will feel safe and cared for by our friendly well-trained nursing staff. Patients regularly comment that they feel as if they are there with them every step of the way.

Privacy is a significant consideration for our local, regional and international patients. We are accustomed to seeing many high profile patients before and after surgery. Our private entrances and waiting area create an environment where discerning patients may avoid public entrances, lobbies, elevators and parking areas.
