Surgiplex, LLC Operating Suite
Northern New Jersey Plastic Surgery
Dr. Parker performs his surgical procedures in Surgiplex, LLC, a 2300 square foot ambulatory surgical facility accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). Surgiplex is physically integrated in the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. It is a state-of-the-art facility which duplicates the safety of a hospital in a more relaxed, aesthetic, calming atmosphere. Over 25,000 surgeries have been performed by Dr. Parker in Surgiplex; it is re certified by AAAASF every three years.
The advantages of having our own onsite ambulatory facility to our patients are several. First, since Dr. Parker is the only surgeon operating here and performs plastic surgery procedures only, our entire team is specialized in what we do; this promotes a very high level of patient care. Second, Dr. Parker is not under any time constraints to rush through his procedures as one might be in a multi-physician facility. He does not leave the operating room until everything looks perfect to him. Third, our limited patient flow help us maintain a germ-free facility which minimizes the risk of resistant bacteria, a problem that can occur in more heavily-traveled facilities, such as in hospitals. Finally, Dr. Parker has admitting privileges at Valley Hospital, its new facility immediately adjacent to ours.
Design and Equipment
Patient safety was foremost in our design of Surgiplex, LLC. Features include a dedicated HVAC system with high grade filtration to maximize air purification, piped in anesthesia gas from a remote storage tank room to the operating room, high capacity compressed air and vacuum pumps as well as an emergency generator to provide electricity in the event of a power failure.
“Surgiplex, LLC is a very modern, well equipped facility where good quality, safe intra and postoperative care can be provided.”Facelift Patient
Our operating room lights, procedure table, anesthesia, monitoring and other equipment are all state of the art. Additional safety precautions are taken such as the routine use of mechanical calf compression and warm air body blankets.
Patient comfort has been assured by the use of an experienced designer to provide a warm and cozy feeling in our recovery area. Soft lighting, attractive wall coverings and fabrics along with cherry wood cabinets create a soothing environment. Scenic photographs taken by Dr. Parker are displayed throughout the facility.

Patients having surgery in Surgiplex have three options for anesthesia and these will be discussed with the patient by Dr. Parker at their initial consultation. Many of our procedures such as facelifts, breast augmentation, breast reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction will require our anesthesiologists to administer general anesthesia or monitored monitored sedation (like what is commonly given for a colonoscopy).

It is necessary to charge a separate fee for the use of the facility which is in addition to the anesthesia and surgical fees. The duration and type of procedure determine the facility fee. It is substantially less than what a hospital would charge and there is no additional fee if surgery should take longer than the estimated time. Hospitals and other ambulatory facilities commonly charge extra for this. We’ll include the facility fee in your individualized plastic surgery fee quote at your consultation.
