Hospital or Private Surgery Center: Where Should You Have Your Cosmetic Procedure Done?

While, for various reasons, some cosmetic surgeries are required to be done in a hospital, most others can be performed in a private surgery center like the one at Plastic Surgery Associates of Montgomery. When deciding whether to go with a surgeon located within a hospital, or one in a private facility, you’ll find there are many benefits to choosing a private office. Below, we’ll take a look at the top three reasons you might prefer to have your cosmetic surgery done at a private practice.

  • Specifically designed for cosmetic procedures. Unlike a hospital, everything and everyone in the private surgery center is dedicated to plastic surgery. The equipment, the staff, and even your room was designed around the type of procedure you’ll be having. With this in mind, it’s also important to note that any AAAASF-certified facility is going to be held to the same standards as a hospital.
  • Unequivocal privacy. Since the private surgery center is where you’ll also go for your initial consultation, you’ll be welcomed by friendly faces and team members who already know who you are and what you’re there for. Without having to wait in a crowded room before your surgery, you’ll be able to relax in a private waiting room, and of course, have your very own private recovery area before going home.
  • Lower risks for sickness and infection. Of course, hospitals see a countless number of patients, many of whom are sick. This means your chances of picking up an illness throughout your stay will be increased if you decide to go with a hospital. Since private surgery centers are only performing cosmetic procedures, you’ll be far less likely to pick up any sickness-causing germs throughout your stay.
