Breast Revision in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Revision in Philippines

Looking at a breast revision in the Philippines? If you have already had breast augmentation surgery by way of implants and want to remove or replace them, then why not combine it with a holiday in this beautiful part of the world?

Problems that breast revision addresses are:

  • Leakage of one or both implants
  • Changing the implants from silicone to saline or vice versa
  • Asymmetry in the breasts
  • Change in size of the implants
  • Symmastia where the implants merge, so there is no cleavage
  • Capsular contracture, when tissues harden around the implants and cause pain
  • Shift in position of the implants

After breast revision surgery you will find that your breasts look and feel more natural and you will be happier with the size of the breasts (if you have had them reduced or further enhanced).

Why consider breast revision in the Philippines?

Breast revision surgery can be done in the Philippines regardless of where you had the original surgery. This surgery is more complex than the initial one. As it is a plastic surgery, you have to pay for it and this can be quite expensive. In the Philippines the cost of the surgery is much less so you save a great deal even taking into the account the fare and accommodation costs.

You can select the place you want to go to in the Philippines. Perhaps you would like to be in a big city like Manila with numerous medical centers and hospitals? Perhaps you would prefer Cebu City thanks to its water based activities and nearby islands? Perhaps you would prefer the vast entertainment options available in Angeles City?  Perhaps you would like Boracay for its beautiful beaches? There are many places in the Philippines that have excellent medical facilities and cater to medical tourists, so you can plan your holiday accordingly and add your plastic surgery procedure to that.

Why can’t you book on your own?

It is important that you select the right medical facility and a good doctor who is skilled and experienced in breast revision surgeries. That is because this procedure is more complex than the initial surgery. If you book on your own you will not be able to tell whether the place you go to will be good or not. You can definitely read horror stories on the net about people who have had bad plastic surgery experiences. You certainly don’t want to be one of them.

How long does breast revision take and what is the downtime associated with it?

The time take for breast revision surgery will be dependent on the kind of work required and whether you want simple change of implants or there is more extensive work. It can take from as little as one hour to as much as four hours. Again depending on the work required, your doctor may want to use general anesthesia or give you local anesthesia. Most of the time, you will be able to leave the place once you are fully conscious, though you may want to stay overnight in case you need monitoring.

You will have sutures, drains and bandages and need to be able to take care of the dressings and go for follow up appointments as required. You will have to wear surgical bras for the required period of time. You may have pain, swelling, itching and bruising post surgery. You will need to rest for a few days and avoid the sun and heavy activities, so it is best to get your holiday activities in before the surgery. You will have to rest and sleep on your back, preferably in an inclined position. While you will need at least two weeks off work, you will be relatively normal after four to six weeks.

How much does breast revision surgery cost?

In the Philippines you can expect to pay between AUD 3,500 to AUD 5,500 depending on the city and the doctor. In Australia the price for this surgery ranges from AUD 5,000 to AUD 15,000.
