Breast Augmentation in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Augmentation in Philippines

Last fact-checked: 14 October 2019

Thinking about traveling for breast augmentation in the Philippines but don't where to begin? Then keep reading to find out what the procedure entails, what to expect when having surgery abroad, how much you can save - and discover some of the best Filipino clinics listed with Medical Departures. 

Why Breast Augmentation - Is it for Me?

If you are looking to increase the volume or shape of your breasts, then a "boob job" or "breast implants" (as the procedure is more commonly referred to) would be the most obvious solution.

In fact, a boob job may be required for several reasons. For example, augmentation may be required as part of breast reconstruction after mastectomy surgery; it could be undertaken to restore breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, or just simply to jump up a few cup sizes if you are unhappy with your figure.

Why Have Breast Augmentation in The Philippines

The Philippines has long been a favorite holiday destination for Aussies and Kiwis alike. In recent years, medical tourism has become increasingly popular, with patients taking advantage of the high-quality medical care that is available here at a fraction of the cost back home. It is an ideal holiday location, boasting fabulous beaches to relax on, rainforests and mountain peaks to explore and the three largest shopping malls in the world. So why not combine your surgery with a well-deserved holiday in the sun?

Spanish and American influences can be seen throughout Filipino culture, which helps to promote a rather familiar atmosphere, as well as the fact that most Filipinos speak fantastic English. Locals are very friendly and hospitable, which makes the Philippines perfect for recuperating after your surgery (during which time you won't be able to venture too far from your hotel).

Medical care is considerably less expensive here than it is in countries like the UK, the US, Canada and Australia; you can easily save 50% on the price of breast augmentation here, yet that does not mean you have to make any compromises when it comes to quality. Medical tourist facilities are generally excellent, and doctors have a high level of expertise, often affiliated with international professional organizations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Choosing the right doctor and clinic for your procedure is of paramount importance. There is a vast array of research material available online to help you decide which establishment is best suited to meet your requirements. At Medical Departures, we have compiled a list of reputable clinics in the Philippines for your convenience. We have visited these clinics personally to ensure that both the staff and facilities are suitable. Our clinic listing pages also contain reviews from former patients, maps and price lists. 

What Does a Breast Augmentation Procedure Involve?

The usual process involves making an incision in an inconspicuous area to minimize scarring to allow an implant to be inserted. The implant can be placed either submuscular, which means under the pectoral muscle, or it can be placed submammary (or sub-glandular), which means over the pectoral muscle.

Alternatively, fat can be removed from other parts of the body through liposuction and then injected into the breasts through incisions. This method can be utilised when only a small size increase is required and will give a more natural result.

How Long Does a Boob Job Typically Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

The average time for a breast augmentation procedure is usually between one and two hours. That said, you will need to factor in more time than this as the whole process involves additional steps, such as an initial consultation, planning and post-surgery recovery before you can head back to your hotel room on the same day.

Compared to other surgeries, recovery time from a breast augmentation is quite rapid. Drainage tubes and gauze may be left in place, but will usually be removed within a few days.

It is generally recommended that you should take a week off work and avoid any strenuous activity. Normal activities can normally be resumed within two weeks, although it is recommended that you should wait for six weeks before doing any heavy lifting.

What Is the Cost of Breast Augmentation in the Philippines Compared with Australia and New Zealand?

Prices vary widely depending on the nature of your surgery, but in the Philippines breast augmentation costs, on average, around AUD $4,600 (US $3,200, CAD $4,500, £2,300 GBP, €2,900) compared to AUD $16,500 (US $11,500, CAD $16,100, £8,000 GBP, €10,200) in Australia.

Prices vary, depending on which country you go to, but you can usually make savings around 50% in most cases, and sometimes even more.
