Hospitals we use

Hospitals selected by Coco Ruby Surgeons in Melbourne Australia

We only operate at Accredited Hospitals – To improve patient-safety measures and excellent care from fully-qualified medical and surgical staff, all our major plastic surgery procedures are performed at accredited Hospitals.

Note that many ‘Cosmetic Surgeons’ or doctors often don’t have operating rights in actual accredited hospitals. Having a major surgery in the back room of someone’s clinic may not be as good for patient-safety as having surgery in a genuine accredited hospital.

What to look for in a Hospital for Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery

When you are looking at getting surgery there are several things to look for when it comes to the hospital and what they provide.

  • Firstly, is it an Accredited Hospital with a reputation for Service, Safety and Security?
  • Secondly, look for a Boutique sized Hospital. In other words, not too big not too small.
  • Thirdly, are the caring staff and nurses friendly?
  • Are the Facilities and rooms nice, and can you have a single room?
  • Is the Food and Refreshments available healthy and nutritious. This is important for optimal recovery.
  • And, lastly what are the in-room Entertainment options and WiFi
