Liposuction in Manila

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Manila

Last fact-checked: 8 March 2020

No matter how much time you put in at the gym, for many people, that last bit of pudge just won’t budge. If this is you — and you want to do something about it — consider liposuction in Manila, Philippines, where you’ll receive quality care for thousands less than back home.

Find out more — and how to book your free appointment — with Medical Departures. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction (lipo) gets rid of stubborn fat deposits that remain after diet and exercise. Common areas are abdomen, hips, thighs or male breasts.

You may be a suitable candidate for liposuction if:

  • You have fatty areas of your body that haven’t responded to diet and exercise despite shedding fat elsewhere. 

  • You are around 35 years of age or younger (when the skin has enough elasticity to conform to a new shape.)

  • Your weight is in the “normal” range (it is important that you do not have a Body Mass Index (BMI) in the obese range). 

Why Should I Consider Liposuction in Manila?

The Philippines is renowned for having some of the most hospitable people on Earth. You’ll experience an amazing mélange of Malay, Spanish and American-influenced architecture, food and culture. It’s considered a safe country for tourists and around 90% of the Filipino population speaks English, so communication will be easy. 

Filipino medical providers make up a huge number of Doctors, and nurses worldwide. They are highly trained graduates of top medical schools in Asia, Europe and the USA. Imagine receiving care that rivals or surpasses that which you find at home, even when you bundle airfare, accommodations and food – all for 50-90% less than it would cost in your own country. 

What Is the Cost of Liposuction in Manila?

The average cost of Liposuction in Manila is around AUD $1,477 (NZ $1,591 UK £754, EUR €966, CAN $1,423, USD $1,051). 

That is an incredible saving compared to the cost of the same treatment at home - which is over $7,000 in Australia. (NZ $7,744, UK £3,672, EUR €4,700, CAN $6,928, USD $5,116).

Please note: These are approximate prices based on global averages at the time of writing. To see updated prices, as well as clinic photos, surgeon profiles, patient reviews and other information, take a look at these three leading clinics in Manila for liposuction:

How Can I Be Sure that the Quality of Liposuction in Manila Is the Same as Home?

Do take time researching lipo clinics in Manila, just as you would if you were having the procedure done in your home country. Talk to friends who may have had it done, read all the reviews you can find online, ask for references, check the surgeon’s fellowships, certificates of training, and years of experience. Do the same for the facility where your services will be performed: How modern is it? Is their equipment state-of-the-art? What are past patients saying?

Medical Departures answers all these questions and more. Our promise is to list only the most modern and well-equipped facilities and clinics around the world, with the Philippines being one of the most popular destinations. 

Only providers with the best professional memberships, qualifications and positive reviews pass our quality checks, which also include criminal and legal checks.

What Happens During the Liposuction Procedure?

It is possible that you will be administered local anesthesia (that makes only the area affected numb), IV sedation (to relax you deeply – you might sleep, or be in a twilight state), or general anesthesia, and be totally asleep for the duration of the procedure. 

The safest and most common technique for liposuction uses micro-cannulas, which are about 2.8mm, and allow the surgeon to perform controlled, detailed work.

Fat cells are infused with a mix of saline, local anesthetic and adrenaline mix. This combo increases safety, eases the removal process and makes for a less uncomfortable recovery.

Lasers and ultrasound devices can assist in the micro-cannula liposuction procedure. Both the laser method and ultrasound (ultrasound cavitation) method work to dissolve the fat, making the tissue easier to extract via cannula.

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

How Long Will the Procedure Take?

Lipo is usually carried out as an out-patient procedure, but sometimes you may have the option for an overnight hospital stay.

Depending on the area (or areas) being worked, and the type of anesthesia selected for you by your surgeon, the surgery could take anywhere from two to six hours. Your surgeon will be able to inform you how long it will take after an initial consultation. 

What Does the Recovery Process Look Like?

Important things to note about your recovery from liposuction surgery:

  • You will have to wear a compression garment for some time after the surgery, to provide support, help in pain and inflammation reduction. 

  • Depending on the area you have done, you can return to work in about a week and resume getting back to low impact exercise in about a month. 

  • In terms of when you will be permitted to fly home, do consult your surgeon on this

  • After around three months, you will start seeing your results improving, and at six months you will start to see the end results.
