Butt Lift in Manila

The Ultimate Guide to Butt Lift in Manila

Last fact-checked: 3 November 2020

You’ve put in the hard work and lost the weight—yet still left with excess skin around your butt that won't budge. Or perhaps you're unhappy about that stubborn fat that has accumulated over time that won't respond to exercise.

Regardless of whether after dramatic weight loss or just ageing, a butt lift (gluteoplasty) can help remove this skin and fat through a safe and effective surgical procedure, which may also involve liposuction.

See how much you can save in Manila, the Philippines on butt lift surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Butt Lift?

You may be a good candidate for this surgery if:

  • You are in good relative overall health
  • You’ve lost a significant amount of weight and are near your ideal weight
  • You have loose, excess, sagging skin below the waist
It's also important to understand that this procedure does not add any volume in the same way as a “Brazilian butt lift”, which is a completely different method that uses a fat transfer. 

Why Should I Have My Butt Lift in Manila?

Our specialist partner surgeons in Manilla are more than qualified to carry out this procedure—delivering impressive results for less without compromising on quality. They also practise in state-of-the-art hospitals or modern outpatient facilities that adhere to the same international standards as any trusted medical centre back home. 

The core concept of medical tourism relies on the fact that you will be making savings, but it should be pointed out that the average cost of a butt lift in Manila is particularly low compared to back home, allowing you to realise savings ranging between 60%-80% at our background-checked clinics–even once you include the airfare and accommodations.

Once you have talked to your surgeon to determine your date of surgery, you may also wish to fit in a bit of a holiday with a long list of things to see and do in Manila, as well as plenty of beaches nearby. Following your butt lift, you'll need to take things much easier, so do make sure you get your more vigorous holiday activities out of the way before your procedure.

How Can I Be Sure of the Quality of My Butt Lift Surgery in Manila, Philippines?

You can start by research for your treatment, providers and facilities in Manila, just as you would for providers at home. Not all surgeons are alike, so you need to learn as much about the procedure, the surgeon’s education, professional associations, like ISAPS, and experience. Check out their before and after photos to make sure your expectations match with the work they do. 

While you are doing your homework, be sure to check out Medical Departures, and all the information we have collected for you. We work hard to quality check each and every provider listed on our site, making sure they adhere to standards that are at least on par with their counterparts in Western countries. 

How Long Will the procedure Take?

A Butt lift surgery can take anywhere from two to five hours to complete.

What Does the Recovery Process Entail?

It is possible to return home the same day of surgery, as long as you have someone to provide skilled care for the next two or three days. Alternatively, you can stay at an inpatient facility and receive care there. 

It should also be noted that:

  • You will have to sleep, sit, stand and move specific ways to make sure there is no tension on your incisions.
  • It takes about two to three weeks to recover sufficiently to return to normal activity, and a bit longer to resume more strenuous activities.
  • Full recovery can take months, but this can be sped up if you take good care of your general health, and have adequate help for daily tasks.
