Tummy Tuck in Manila

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Manila

Last fact-checked: 26 September 2020

Get a tummy tuck in Manila while on a medical holiday to the Philippines and save yourself thousands at one of Medical Departures' verified clinics. 

If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight or have had kids, you may well be left with sagging skin and fatty spots around the tummy area, and often, this doesn't respond to diet and exercise. A tummy tuck removes this excess skin, tightens abdominal muscles, and gets rid of stubborn fat. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Tummy Tuck Surgery?

You may be suitable for this procedure if:

  • Your weight is in a normal BMI range, and you have maintained the same weight for several months.
  • You still have excess skin and fat in your mid-section despite diet and exercise.
  • You are in good overall health and have realistic expectations in terms of the results you can expect to see.
  • You understand you will be advised to commit to a diet and exercise regime to maintain results following surgery.

Why Should I Get a Tummy Tuck in Manila?

As well as top-quality medical care for incredibly affordable prices, Manila has so much more to offer today's medical tourists.

Medieval fortresses sit in the shadows of modern skyscrapers, with the culture blended wonderfully with Spanish and American influences. Traditional meals, like barbeque chicken and rice, can be snapped up for under four dollars while getting around and shopping are also cheap. You can even head to one of the nearby beaches before surgery to really make the most of your time in the Philippines. Talk with your surgeon about the best time to plan your tour of the area.

You’ll find that the level of care here rivals or surpasses that which you find at home. And once you add in airfare, accommodation, food and other holiday expenses, you can still save more than 50%. 

How Much Can I Save on a Tummy Tuck in Manila?

Prices can vary, depending on where and exactly what you have done, but you can expect to save around 60-90% of what you’d pay at home. 

For instance, the average cost of a Tummy Tuck in Manila is around AUD $4,448 (NZ $4,961, UK £2,402, EUR €3,018, CAN $4,365, USD $3,400). This represents an incredible saving of around 80% compared to the cost of having the treatment at home - which is almost $13,000 in Australia. (NZ $14,481, UK £7,010, EUR €8,809, CAN $12,740, USD $9,924).

[Please: the above-mentioned average prices are estimates based on data at the time of writing.]

How Can I Be Sure of the Quality of Care in Manila?

Researching the top tummy tuck clinics in Manila is vital; you need to find out about where your prospective surgeon studied, all of their qualifications and their memberships/affiliations. Read all of their reviews, and look at all the before and after photos in their portfolio.

Take advantage of the quality checks we at Medical Departures do for you. We vet and list providers’ education, qualifications, professional and medical association memberships, and perform criminal and legal checks. We visit the clinics and confirm that the high-definition photos we include in the listing match the physical location. 

To get started and see the latest prices on offer, take a look at these three leading clinics in Manila for tummy tuck surgery:

What Happens During a Tummy Tuck?

After an initial consultation and planning stage, the procedure begins with your specialist administers general anesthesia, as you will be asleep throughout the procedure.

Your surgeon will make the specific incisions for your particular type of tummy tuck. These may be tiny incisions for keyhole surgery or involve a longer incision across from each hip bone.

Through these, excess skin will be removed, abdominal muscles and skin will be tightened. In many cases, the navel (belly button) will be repositioned.

You could go home the same day if you have a simple procedure. However, you may need to be admitted for a brief hospital stay for a more extensive procedure.

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

Abdominoplasty Techniques:

The most common types of tummy tucks are:

  • Mini: the smallest of incisions and amount of skin/tissue removal. The belly button may not need to be moved.
  • Standard: the incision is usually made between the hip bones
  • Extended: the incision is across the abdomen, and extends over the hips, to tighten the whole abdominal area more uniformly.

How Long Does the Surgery Take?

Abdominoplasties take about two to four hours, although your surgeon will be able to give you a more exact time upon consultation. 

What Does the Recovery Process Entail?

  • Expect some discomfort and pain around the surgical area, as well as the low back, and surrounding areas.
  • You are likely to have some swelling, numbness and bruising.
  • You will be fitted with a girdle/compression garment for about a month which provides support and helps to keep swelling down.
  • You will be able to return to work in about 2-4 weeks and get back to low impact exercise in about 4-6 weeks.
  • It will take around 3 months for your results to become more apparent, and final results are seen at six months.
