Because of her extensive experience with both surgical and non-surgical patients, Tracy has the tools and understanding to handle every aspect of her patients' skincare: “I strongly believe that the skincare regimen is an integral part of our comprehensive care plan for all patients. It has a tremendous impact on preparing their skin for a procedure and assuring that the results are lasting.”
Tracy's fascination with skincare and her hunger for knowledge have earned her national recognition.

Our office is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc (AAAASF), and licensed by the state of New Hampshire.
While the AAAASF accreditation process is voluntary, it has nonetheless received overwhelming recognition and support from both the surgical and the regulatory communities. To be accredited, surgery facilities must be owned and/or operated by the American Board of Medical Specialties Surgeons (ABMS), and these surgeons must also be board certified in approved surgical specialties. To date, approximately 625 ambulatory surgery centers and 50 facilities are in the process of becoming accredited, making this the single largest specialty surgery accreditation system in the world.
Accreditation consists of a three-fold review that includes a site visit, a panel assessment of site visit findings, and successful participation in a peer review/quality assurance program – the results of which must be reported to AAAASF.
These standards for accreditation enable surgeons operating outpatient surgery centers to develop a quality facility and ultimately improve patient care. We are proud to offer plastic surgery patients at our New Hampshire (NH) center this level of safety and convenience.
