FLORIDA BANS LIPOSUCTION IN UNREGULATED OFFICES

This April, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a law that will take effect January 2013.  From 2013 on, any liposuction involving removal of more than 1000 grams (2 pounds) must be done in a licensed surgical office equipped with life saving equipment and a doctor trained in advance cardiac life support. 

As a Board Certified
plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, FL, I hope non-plastic surgeons will give up doing lipsuction – enhancing patient safety.
