MyLooks® Inc., a company dedicated to providing high-quality care for cosmetic surgery patients, has achieved what is considered to be the Gold Standard certification for all of its MyLooks® clinics. To assure consumers of best safety practices, MyLooks® sought out accreditation by The American Association of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities [AAAASF] for all its clinics.
MyLooks® currently operates five clinics across Florida in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando and St. Petersburg. Certification by the AAAASF provides MyLooks® clinics with state and national recognition for patient safety and quality care standards with medical health agencies, surgeons, legislators and consumers.
“All MyLooks® physicians are Board Certified Plastic Surgeons with fully accredited clinics where patient’s safety is our main priority,” said Paul Risner, Chief Legal Officer for MyLooks®. “Receiving Gold Standard AAAASF accreditation at all MyLooks® clinics recognizes that our consumers receive the very best quality care at each practice.”
The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc., was established in 1980 to standardize and improve the overall quality of independent medical and surgical care in facilities to assure the public of safety.

- Clinics must use Anesthesia professionals for deeper levels of anesthesia.
- Clinics must meet specific standards to provide a safe surgical environment.
