Our Plastic Surgeons' Work Environment

The surgical segment of our building houses state-of-the-art surgical suites where our plastic surgeons perform procedures and a spacious and comfortable recovery room and postoperative room for our patients. Our surgical facility not only meets, but exceeds, community and state safety standards. We are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care with recommendations to become Medicare Certified because our safety standards were deemed equivalent to that of hospitals. The operating room staff is a team of full-time individuals including a technician, quality control nurse, and anesthetist. Their experience and skill further reduce the risk of complications for our patients.

Our Operating Facility

Cosmetic Surgery Institute is also distinguished by the many safety protocols we have built in to the practice. Two important examples include transfer agreements with local hospitals in case of emergencies and the use of TIVA or "Total IV Anesthesia," which allows our patients to wake up rapidly without nausea and with minimal side effects.

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.

I went to Dr. Mo over a year ago for a breast augmentation. I was absolutely blown away by him and his team. Their caring bedside manner made me feel so comfortable and so welcome.

We restore, repair, and make whole those parts which fortune has taken away, not so much that they delight the eyes but they buoy up the spirit and help the mind of the beset.
