Cosmetic surgery such as brachioplasty 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 brachioplasty or arm lift surgery, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
Arm reduction surgery can remove excess fat, lift the skin, and tighten the arms, resulting in smaller circumference of the upper arms. Depending on the amount of extra skin and how loose the supporting tissues have become, extra skin is removed from incisions down the inside of the arm or within the armpit.
If the skin has good elasticity, patients who want smaller arms may consider having liposuction of the arms. Unlike brachioplasty, scars are very small. However, evaluation of the patient is very important because liposuction can result in unsightly, loose skin if the patient’s skin is not elastic enough to contract accordingly.
