Last fact-checked: 9 November 2019

Learn about liposuction in Cebu City - one of the Philippines' popular tourist destinations - with Medical Departures, including what the procedure entails, how to find a quality clinic and what to expect when you are there. 

Liposuction today is carried out in a number of safe, technologically advanced ways. Apart from the traditional method of liposuction that involves the use of cannulas to vacuum fat from the body, there are a host of other non-invasive methods that enable the body to get rid of the fat on its own.

Why Have liposuction in Cebu City?

If you are on holiday in Cebu City – and it is a prime holiday destination – you can get liposuction procedures done if small pockets of fat are bothering you. Healthcare facilities are generally excellent, but you should do some of your own research, like ascertaining whether your surgeon has memberships or affiliations with professional organizations, and learning all you can about the actual clinic or hospital.

Cebu City has excellent medical facilities and well-trained doctors, as long as you know where to look. Most clinics offer various methods of liposuction, depending on your requirements and needs. If you want extensive body contouring work done, then it is best to get your holiday in before the procedure.

Cebu City has lots to offer the tourist, including beautiful white sandy beaches, azure waters, exotic marine life and a range of water sports. It also has a variety of cuisines on offer from modern international foods to local foods. You can also find hotels and accommodations to suit your budget.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

It would seem easy to book on your own. Even if you have put your research in place, liposuction is not without risk since it involves the use of anesthesia and a device going into your body to vacuum the fat. Like other surgeries, liposuction is not without reactions and you should really not take any chances, particularly if you are going to Cebu City in order to have the procedure to simply save money.

Medical Departures checks everything to minimize your risks. We make sure that the doctors in the clinics and hospitals are well trained, accredited, qualified and skilled. We check the other staff as well as the people who are usually your first point of contact and ensure that they can speak English and are trained. We check that the clinic maintains strict hygiene standards and uses the latest technology.

How Long Does Liposuction Take and What Is the Estimated Recovery Period?

The time taken for a liposuction procedure will depend on what kind of liposuction is used and how much fat you want to be removed. Small procedures can take as little as half an hour. If large parts of the body are treated then the surgery can take four to five hours. It also depends on whether you combining liposuction with any other cosmetic surgery like facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck. Liposuction treatments include:

  • Traditional liposuction or tumescent liposuction
  • Laser-assisted liposuction that uses a laser to liquefy the fat before removal
  • Ultrasound liposuction that uses ultrasound waves to liquefy the fat

For liposuction on large areas, you may have bruising and swelling for 10 days or more. You may require a week off from work, though this depends on the individual. Mostly all liposuction treatments require time to show results and the non-invasive ones take a longer time than the invasive ones.
