Are you considering having a breast enlargement in the Philippines? Of all the cosmetic surgery procedures, breast enlargement is one of the most common and can be desired for several reasons, ranging from breast reconstruction to increasing self-confidence.
The cost of medical care is significantly cheaper in the Philippines than it is at home, with savings of up to 70% being possible for a breast enlargement procedure. The quality of care is as good as you would expect back home, with modern clinics and highly-trained doctors who are equally as likely as surgeons back home to be affiliated to international professional organizations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
To help you choose where to have your breast enlargement performed, there is a list of clinics included on this website. We have had site visits with these institutes to ensure their suitability. Background checks have been carried out to verify qualifications and we have posted reviews from former patients outlining their experiences.
It is cheap to travel in the Philippines and, in recent years, many Aussies and Kiwis have taken the opportunity to combine their holiday requirements with their medical needs. With breath-taking beaches catering for all types of watersports, and the picturesque settings of the rainforests and mountain peaks, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Whilst remaining unique, Filipino culture has a strong Spanish and American influence, which provides some familiarity for tourists. Most Filipinos speak English, so language will not be a barrier, and the hospitality provided locally makes the Philippines the ideal location to recuperate after surgery.
There can be several different reasons as to why a women would consider breast enlargement. These can range from:
post-surgery breast reconstruction
to balance out uneven breast sizes
to increase breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss
to gain a more preferred body image to increase self-confidence
There are two methods that can be utilised to increase the size of your breasts:
Liposuction - this involves removing fat from another part of the body and injecting it into the breasts. This process is known as autologous fat transfer and, whilst the results achieved are natural-looking, the process is generally only utilised when a small increase in size is desired.
Breast Implants - this is the most common method of achieving breast enlargement. There are several different types of implants, the most common being saline and silicone.
There are several techniques that can be employed for inserting breast implants. Incisions can be made either under the armpit, outside the coloured part of the nipple or underneath the breast. The implant is then inserted into the incision and positioned either under or over the pectoral muscle.
Breast enlargement procedures generally take, on average, about 1 to 2 hours.
After the surgery, you will initially be quite sore, stiff and tender but you can take medicinal pain relief to help alleviate this. Swelling and bruising may well develop in the few days following your procedure but this should subside after about a week. You may also have drainage tubes inserted for a few days to draw fluid away from your wounds.
Usually, taking a week or two of work is sufficient time to recover from a breast enlargement procedure, however, heavy lifting or strenuous exercise is not recommended for at least six weeks.
Prices vary widely depending on the nature of your surgery, but in the Philippines breast enlargement 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 70% in most cases, and sometimes even more.
