A Private Surgical Center
At the Midwest Aesthetic Surgery Center in Joplin, MO, Dr. Frank W. Shagets performs facial cosmetic surgery to make treatment more convenient for you. Accredited by the AAAHC, our office-based facial plastic surgery center has consistently met their standards of excellence for safety.
About Our Accredited Center
With approximately 2,000 square feet of space, our office-based ambulatory surgical center is fully equipped with comfortable pre- and post-operative areas. Although it is connected to our practice, the surgical center is very private. We even have a separate exit for patients who feel uncomfortable leaving through the waiting area after surgery. While Dr. Shagets can perform virtually all cosmetic procedures in our fully equipped center, any treatment covered by insurance is conducted at the local hospital.
What Is the AAAHC?
Founded in 1979, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) was created by a coalition of six different medical and surgical associations. The goal of this organization is to ensure that ambulatory, or outpatient, health care centers provide the highest level of aid possible. Their accreditation program is founded on thorough, peer-based assessment of the facility's adherence to safety protocol and dedication to continuing education that improves the level of healthcare they can offer. An accreditation from the AAAHC lasts three years to ensure the center is up-to-date on the latest safety protocols and requirements.
To meet the association's Standards for a Center of Excellence, we have demonstrated our use of “evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, on-going performance improvement strategies, and organizational infrastructure.”

Our goal is to ensure every patient who visits our surgical center feels welcomed, safe, and comfortable. We strive to create a warm and friendly atmosphere so your procedure is a pleasant experience. Our staff is committed to providing the highest level of care for every single patient.

“My results are fantastic. Dr. Shagets is a profectionist, which I love. He is very gentle and thorough. He even came in on a Saturday to check out a concern I had... it was only a stitch! I would highly recommend Dr. Shagets.” P.H. - verified patient
