Our Practice

Our Valdosta Surgery Center provides exceptional care to our South Georgia and North Central Florida Patients

Dr. Sonya J. Merriman and Plastic Surgery Associates are conveniently located in Northwest Valdosta in close proximity to South Georgia Medical Center. The center conveniently serves patients in the Plantation Trace, South Georgia and North Central Florida regions.

An on-site surgery suite is available to offer the very highest quality of care and service as well as privacy, convenience, and cost savings to our patients. All cosmetic procedures are performed in our office outpatient surgery suite under local anesthesia or IV sedation. After a short recovery period, patients are able to return home.


Surgical Facility Certifications

Almost everyone has heard that they should look for “Board Certification” when seeking a qualified Plastic Surgeon. However, less emphasis has been placed on the certification of Ambulatory Surgical Centers. At her plastic surgery center in Valdosta, Dr. Merriman practices an unwavering commitment to provide the highest levels of quality of care to patients. To provide that added security, ASC certification from Medicare, the State of Georgia and American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) has been obtained (State of Georgia ASCID 11-C0001229.) This accreditation allows the provision of that extra measure of confidence that our patients and the community deserves to have in its health care service providers.
