Liposuction in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Philippines

Last fact-checked: 10 October 2019

Can’t seem to shift that spare tyre no matter how much work you put in at the gym? Then you may have thought about liposuction... and then been inevitably put off by the high prices at home. In the Philippines, however, you can thousands less – and get the chance to enjoy a holiday before you head in for surgery.

Why Liposuction - And Am I Suitable for it?

Sometimes even when we watch our diet and exercise regularly, we can’t shift some areas of fat. This is where liposuction can help – and once the fat’s off, it will hopefully be easier to maintain your newer, slimmer shape.

Liposuction can be carried out almost anywhere. For example, on the face, it can be used to get rid of a double chin. More commonly it's used around the body, targeting stubborn belly, butt, thigh and back fat.

Do note that patients must be over 18 with a weight that is within the normal range, as well as enough elasticity in their skin to allow it to shrink down to a new shape. 

Why Should I Have Liposuction in the Philippines?

The Philippines is fast becoming a hot medical tourist destination. Living costs are very low when compared to developed nations, and so if you opt to travel here, you’ll find that medical and surgical costs are considerably lower, too.

This doesn’t mean that the quality is inferior; far from it, in fact. Medical training is as thorough here as it is in the West. Medical training now takes place on the world stage, and with frequent, low-cost flights around the globe it isn’t unusual for many doctors to have undertaken some of their training on foreign soil – and many do take the opportunity to go to the US or Europe.

You'll also find the medical staff here have international affiliations with professional organizations, just like the doctors at home.

As for healthcare facilities, there is a difference between public and private healthcare, with medical tourists being treated at private healthcare facilities. These facilities are often modern, state-of-the-art buildings, equipped with the latest technologies and offering a luxurious experience – a far cry from what many Western patients are used to at home!

Why Book with Medical Departures?

Booking with Medical Departures means you can relax, safe in the knowledge that we have done the background work for you. We visit clinics and hospitals; verify qualifications and professional memberships of medical staff and also run legal/criminal checks.

We publish real patient reviews on our site, alongside clinic photos, virtual video tours and much more – giving you a good picture of what to expect. If we’re not happy with a clinic or doctor, you don’t promote them on our site.

Take a look at three of our top-rated clinics in the Philippines for liposuction below:

• The Aivee Clinic Fort
• The Aivee Clinic Megamall
• The Aivee Clinic Commerce Alabang

Flying into the Philippines is easy, and Manila is well connected for traveling to other parts of the country. English is spoken widely by the majority of the population and so making yourself understood will not be an issue. Filipino’s are renowned for their friendliness and you will enjoy getting to know this incredible country and its people.

How Much Can I Save on Liposuction in the Philippines?

The average cost of Liposuction in the Philippines comes in at around AUD $1,477 (UK £750, EUR €970, CAN $1,400, USD $1,000) compared to the cost of having the treatment at home - $7,200 in Australia. (UK £3,600, EUR €4,700, CAN $7,000, USD $5,100).

Please note that these are only approximate figures because the exact nature of the surgery will vary between each patient.

What Happens During the Liposuction Procedure?

After you have been given an anesthetic the procedure begins. Small incisions are made in the areas where the fat is to be removed. Cannulas (long, thin tubes) are inserted and a saline mixture is injected into the fat cells which dissolves them so they can be sucked out by a machine. Sometimes ultrasound waves are used to break up the fat cells instead of the injection.

How Long Does Liposuction Take?

This depends on which areas you have it done. Just one area may take an hour or two, but a few areas could take up to several hours.

What About the Recovery Time?

Immediately after the procedure you will feel a little stiff and sore and will most likely be wearing a compression garment which helps to reduce swelling and inflammation. You may have drainage tubes inserted to help remove fluid from the wound site(s).

You will need to take things easy for at least a week, and maybe longer depending on where you had the treatment. You will need to ease back into your routine, and take things slowly. You will not be permitted to do any strenuous lifting or vigorous exercise for around six weeks, and it will take several months before you have healed completely.
