Body Lift in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Body Lift in Philippines

Are you considering having a body lift in the Philippines? If you are having problems with loose skin, maybe as a result of weight loss surgery, then a body lift procedure is the solution to return your body back to its former appearance.

There are various reasons that can cause your skin to lose its elasticity. For example, sun damage, aging, weight loss or pregnancy. By undergoing a body lift procedure, you can have your excess fat and loose skin removed.

Why get a body lift in the Philippines?

Medical tourism is common in The Philippines, with many patients from Australia and New Zealand taking advantage of the affordable, good-quality medical care that is available. Travelling in the Philippines is cheap, and it is an ideal holiday location, with many beaches to enjoy, a diverse cuisine to experience and a whole host of shopping opportunities to exploit.

Whilst the Filipino culture is unique, the influence of Spain and America is evident throughout, which promotes a familiar atmosphere – especially given that nearly everybody can speak English. Filipino hospitality is a trait that is renowned across the globe, making the Philippines an ideal location to recuperate after surgery.

The Philippines boasts world-class surgical facilities which can be easily researched online. Before booking your surgery, ensure that the clinic and doctor that you select have a reputable background. The clinics listed at Medical Departures have all been visited by ourselves to assess the suitability of the staff and facilities. We also study patient reviews and perform background checks to confirm professional qualifications and memberships. Clinics will only be listed on our website if they fulfill the required criteria.

What does a body lift procedure involve?

Body lift surgery, or lipectomy, is a process for toning the body. There are three different types of body lift surgery, depending on the areas that you wish to focus on:

  • Upper Body Lift - This procedure focuses on toning anything on the top half of your body, including breasts, chest and the mid back.
  • Lower Body Lift - This procedure focuses on toning the lower areas of the body, including buttocks, thighs or back.
  • Total Body Lift - This procedure focuses on toning areas in both the upper and lower part of the body.

How long does the body lift procedure take and what is the recovery time?

The average surgery time for a body lift is between 4 and 5 hours, although it is difficult to estimate the exact time as patients tend to undergo more than one procedure, such as a thigh lift, butt lift or a tummy tuck, based on individual requirements.

A significant amount of time will be required to ensure a full recovery after any body lift surgery. It usually takes between four and six weeks for a patient to recover fully. You will experience some pain and discomfort after your surgery, and may have drainage tubes in place for a period of time afterwards.
It is recommended that you should take a month off work after surgery. Only light activities should be undertaken during the first six weeks, with more demanding activities being avoided for several months afterwards.

What is the cost of a body lift in the Philippines compared with Australia and New Zealand?
