The medical tourism program in the Philippines has proven to be a big success. The government planned to increase medical tourism to the country, putting in place an enhanced infrastructure, improving facilities and utilizing an international marketing campaign to increase awareness of what the country offers, which is:
• High quality, low cost medical care
• Skilled staff with appropriate qualifications and expertise
• English speakers
• Internationally-accredited hospitals and facilities
• Strict adherence to international health and safety protocols
Public and Private healthcare facilities are different in the Philippines, but booking through Medical Departures ensures you will be seen at a top-notch private facility that caters specifically for international patients.
We only partner with facilities we are happy with, and we undertake a number of background checks to ensure we are satisfied with their credentials. These include onsite visits, collation of real patient reviews, legal/criminal record checks and verification of doctor qualifications and professional memberships.
The Philippines is a wonderful holiday destination, offering picturesque coastlines, palm-fringed beaches, remote mountains and steamy jungles. Of course there are all sorts of activities on land and on or in the water to take advantage of, including scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing. Nature lovers will find plenty to see and the country is recognized as one of only 17 megadiverse countries in the world – a term used to refer to the rich biodiversity found in these countries, which may have many unique species peculiar to that particular area.
City lovers will feel at home in Manila – the sprawling Megacity where all Filipino life is there to observe – and of course, all the services, facilities and entertainment you could wish for.
Nose-jobs are individual procedures, depending on the very specific needs of each patient. No two nose jobs are the same – one person may only want work done to the tip of the nose, whereas others may need reconstruction involving the nasal cartilage, which will take much longer. A nose job can be anything from an hour – up to 6!
Immediately after surgery you will, of course, feel a little out-of-sorts. You will be bandaged and there will be inflammation and bruising. Nasal splints or gauze may be packed into your nostrils. You may feel headachy and sore and will be given pain relief as well as cold presses to help .
Dressings may be removed between 4 and 7 days after surgery but bandages may be left on for up to 10 days. You will need to keep your head elevated and may have to sleep sitting upright, propped up with pillows.
The inflammation and swelling will take a few weeks to go down and it may be around 3 weeks before you can embark on your normal, everyday activities. You will be advised to avoid bending and lifting for the first few weeks and to avoid contact sports and vigorous exercise for around 6 weeks.
Your nose will settle down over the next few months, but it may take up to a year before it has healed completely.
