2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill limits where certain cosmetic surgical procedures may be performed in New Jersey. The bill provides that a physician is to perform any of these procedures only in an office or facility that is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, or The Joint Commission. These procedures include: a liposuction procedure that involves the removal of more than 500 cubic centimeters of fat; a procedure that utilizes a breast prosthesis; and an aesthetic truncal contouring procedure that involves the non-lesional excision of skin. The Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs in the Department of Law and Public Safety, pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act" and in consultation with the State Board of Medical Examiners (BME), is to adopt rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of the bill. The bill takes effect on the first day of the fourth month next following the date of enactment, but authorizes the Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs and the BME to take prior administrative action as necessary for its implementation. The provisions of the bill are not to be construed to apply to a licensed dentist or dually licensed oral and maxillofacial surgeon practicing in this State.
