Cosmetic surgery such as blepharoplasty 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 blepharoplasty surgery, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
Blepharoplasty is a series of various operations for reshaping the eyelids for both cosmetic and functional problems (such as to improve vision problems). This involves the removal of excess skin, fat and muscle from around the eyes to correct droopy upper eyelids, protruding eyebags of the lower eyelids, or to create an upper eyelid fold (to westernize slit eyes). It can be performed on the upper lids and lower lids, at the same time or separately. This procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis and it takes around 30 to 45 minutes per eyelid surgery, under local anesthesia, with or without sedation.
