Is It Safe to Have my Tummy Tuck at Lenox Hill Hospital in Ny?

Tummy tuck at a specific hospital
As long as the surgery is being performed at an accredited facility with competent staff, it is the skill of the plastic surgeon who will be the most important factor in your selection. If you have seen your surgeon and established a good doctor-patient relationship, then I would trust the doctor to select a facility that is well-suited for the procedure that you are having done, in this case tummy tuck. I hope this helps.
Safe Hospital for Surgery?
Thank you for the question.
Although I am not aware of the specific hospital you are referring to I would suggest that you emphasize selection of a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon; once you have developed a level of trust/confidence in your plastic surgeon you will likely develop a sense of confidence with his/her choice of surgery center/hospital, anesthesiologist, staff etc.
If you have persistent concerns you may have to check with state/federal accrediting organizations.
Having an abdominoplasty in the hospital
Lenox Hill Hospital is an excellent hospital and it is very common to have an abdominoplasty there. There are two locations (77th street and 64th street). While most of the outpatient cosmetic plastic surgery is performed at the 64th street campus, the main hospital on 77th street is also used. So, you should not need to worry about the hospital.
