Why is liposuction performed in a Day Surgery facility?

For patient safety all cosmetic surgical procedures, including liposuction, should be performed in a hospital that is registered with the Department of Health and Human Services and accredited to NSQHS standards. Registered hospitals are regularly audited and must maintain high levels of care in order to maintain their registration. During an audit processes such as sterilisation techniques, surgical policies and procedures, equipment maintenance, privacy standards, medical practitioner credentialing and infection control are checked and reported upon.

VSC Day Surgery is registered as a Day Surgery facility by the Department of Health and Human Services and is audited against the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) standards. These are the same standards which all other hospitals must adhere to and is why we perform our liposuction procedures in this private Day Surgery.
