Cosmetic surgery such as breast implant removal or revision 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 breast implant removal or revision surgery, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
This procedure is performed for patients who decide to have breast implants removed or to change the size of implants initially placed. It is also performed when there are complications from breast augmentation surgery such as capsular contracture and implant rupture.
The procedure can be done either on an outpatient basis or with hospital confinement, depending on the patient’s preference. The operation is performed under local anesthesia with sedation.
