Why Should I get my Facelift in Manila?

Manila has become a destination for face lifts because of their highly trained surgeons, medical practitioners, and state-of-the-art medical facilities. Since many of the providers have studied or practiced in the U.S.A or Europe, English is widely spoken. Hospitals and other facilities are often signed up with International Standards Organization protocols, offering internally-recognized hygiene and safety protocols.

You’ve probably checked the prices at home, and found some breathtakingly huge costs, just for the procedure itself. Face Lifts in Manila range between 50%-90% off what you would pay at home, and those savings actually include the costs for airfare and accommodations. Since you’ll already be there, you can even fit in an amazing mini-vacation to experience the beautiful beaches and rich mélange of Malay, Spanish and American culture. Talk with your doctor to figure out when you can fit in your cultural tour around your face lift procedure.

How can I be sure of the quality of Facelift in Manila, Philippines?

Research Manila Facelift providers the same way you would at home. Check provider’s education, certifications, qualifications, professional memberships and portfolios. You’ll want to check as many before & after photos as you can find, as well as reading reviews. You’ll want to learn as much as you can about the medical facilities where your services will be performed.

We at Medical Departures know how important research is. We do our own quality checks to ensure we share only providers who are qualified, educated at top schools, have professional association memberships, positive reviews and a portfolio of before & after photos. We even do criminal and legal checks – an extra step to provide peace of mind. We invite you to take advantage of our research.

What happens during Facelift?

Facelift surgery is done under general anesthesia. Procedures can focus on different regions of your face, depending on your personal aesthetic goals. The surgeon will make incisions, separate face and neck skin from the underlying tissue, reposition muscle, fat and other connective tissue, and add facial implants if they are needed to provide structure. Once the facial structures are sculpted, the facial skin is redraped, and the incisions are closed.

You can read more about Facelifts at the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.


Your surgeon will choose the best technique based on your desired outcome. Some of the techniques you might discuss are:
Traditional facelift uses incisions starting at the temples and running around the front of the ear, and along the lower hairline.
Limited-incision facelift uses incisions on temples, in front of ears, and sometimes lower eyelid and upper lip.
Neck lift uses an incision that starts infront of the ear, wraps under it, and ends on the lower scalp. A neck lift can lift and tighten sagging neck skin, as well as tighten jowls.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Facelift surgery takes about four hours.

What does the recovery process look like?

Right after the surgery, you’ll wear a compression garment, and have to rest and sleep with your head elevated. No driving for the first week.

You can return to work, and slowly resume daily activities, after about two weeks. Bruising will start to fade in about that time, as well. Don’t forget the sunblock, as you should avoid sun exposure for several months after the surgery.

No swimming or strenuous activity for the first month, and no makeup until you are told it is OK.

Your facelift should be healed in about 6-8 months.
