Arm Lift in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Arm Lift in Philippines

Last fact-checked: 4 February 2020

If you want to rid your upper arms of unsightly sagging skin, an arm lift in the Philippines may be the ideal solution to shape things up. 

Why the Philippines, you say? As you’ll discover, this stunning Southeast Asian country has a thriving medical tourism industry, and normally expensive elective surgery, like an arm lift, can cost up to 70% less compared to back home. Plus, when you book with Medical Departures at one of our quality-checked clinics, you can be assured of great results coupled with world-class patient care. 

Why Would I Consider an Arm Lift?

It is very difficult to dislodge fat and tone your upper arms, particularly if you’ve lost skin as you’ve got older or after weight loss. Even if you do lose weight, the skin can sag and some women even develop drooping skin that makes their upper arms look like bat wings.

Medically known as brachioplasty, this surgery can be carried out in different ways, depending on the condition of your upper arms and the desired results. You can have a mini arm lift or a more extensive one, with or without liposuction

After an arm lift, you’ll once again be able to wear sleeveless and strappy clothes without feeling conscious of your arms.

Why Consider an Arm Lift in the Philippines?

Plastic surgery in countries like Australia or the UK is often out of financial reach, with prices for elective procedures like this breaking the AUD$ 10,000 mark. The Philippines offers this procedure at reasonable rates, making it an affordable option. Plus, those living in Australia can reach the Philippines without the need for a long-haul flight. 

The Philippines is a big medical tourism destination. Major resorts and cities, like the capital of Manila, have quality hospitals and clinics, so you can select one according to where you want to go for a holiday (since you can easily combine a holiday with some plastic surgery).

Among the places that are medical tourism hotspots in the Philippines are Manila, Cebu City, Makati, Quezon City, Pasig City, Muntinlupa, and Angeles City. Some of these cities make great bases to explore some of the Philippine’s incredible islands, many of which are just a short, inexpensive ferry ride away.

Booking with Medical Departures

It can take a great deal of time and effort to narrow down first a city and then a hospital in the Philippines for your arm lift surgery. Even then you will never be sure of whether or not you are getting the best deal and how good the doctors actually are. If you simply book through a website you will have no means of verifying the information there and you can read enough bad experiences of people thanks to the internet.

Booking through Medical Departures is a much safer option since we only list reputed clinics, hospitals and doctors on our website. These should have met our high standards and criteria for listing. We also conduct background checks on the doctors, their experience, any professional credentials or memberships and qualifications and other details. We ensure that the hospitals and clinics offer good ambiance and great quality of care so that you are not shortchanged. We also offer the best price guarantee, so why would you go anywhere else?

How Long Does Arm Lift Surgery Take and What Is the Estimated Recovery Period?

During your initial consultation, the doctor will check your physical condition and see how much surgery is actually needed. For instance:

  • If you are young and have good skin elasticity, the procedure may only entail liposuction. 

  • If there is very little drooping skin, then liposuction can be combined with tightening of the skin. For more extensive work, your arm lift may combine liposuction with tissue and skin removal.

  • Another factor to consider is whether only the top halves of the upper arms need work or whether the surgery should extend to the elbows. 

  • Sometimes it may also cover some of the underarms and a little above the chest. 

For a more extensive procedure, it will take up to three hours and is usually performed under general anesthesia.

You will need assistance for the first 48 to 72 hours and you may need to stay in hospital overnight. As the surgery involves the arms, you will have limited movement in your arms following the surgery and you can estimate up to two weeks off work. You will have bandages and possible drains that you will need to take care of. You may have compression garments after liposuction. You will have to sleep with your arms in an elevated position for around two weeks. You should be able to resume most everyday activities after six weeks.

How Much Can I Save on an Arm Lift in the Philippines?

In Australia, an extensive arm lift can cost more than AUD 10,000 (NZ $10,700; UK £6,000; EURO €7,200; US $7,600; CAN $10,000)

In the Philippines, you can expect to pay an average of around AUD 2,500 (NZ $2,700; UK £1,500; EURO €1,800; US $1,900; CAN $2,500) — a huge saving of over 70%. 

[Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
