Cosmetic surgery such as abdominal liposuction is very affordable in the Philippines. Lower overhead costs and professional fees makes it possible for U.S.- trained plastic & reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Carlos Lasa, Jr. to perform these surgeries at a fraction of the cost of the same procedures in the United States, U.K. and other countries, without sacrificing quality of care.
The Philippines’ medical services can rival the best in the world. Most Filipino doctors speak English fluently, ensuring the good communication between surgeon and patient that is essential during consultation. There are qualified and well-trained plastic surgeons who charge relatively affordable fees, especially if they practice in Asian countries like the Philippines, where cost of living expenses are low and if they can keep overhead costs low by having modest outpatient surgery clinics. However, be careful if the cosmetic surgery provider you’re considering charges much lower than others in the same country. Although price is definitely a factor when considering elective surgery, patients seeking quality medical care at very affordable prices should know that choosing the right surgeon is the single most important decision they will make. For best results for your abdominal liposuction surgery, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
Liposuction involves the surgical suctioning or vacuuming of fat from beneath the surface of the skin. It is an excellent method of spot reduction for the abdomen and waist. This procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis. The length of the operation varies from 2 to 6 hours, under local tumescent anesthesia, with or without sedation.
Abdominal skin contracts remarkably after liposuction. If there is loose skin still remaining after six months, this can be easily removed as an outpatient surgery procedure under local anesthesia only. Abdominal liposuction entails less risk than a tummy-tuck and may be done as an outpatient procedure. The patient is able to walk around immediately after the procedure.
