Cosmetic surgery such as chin augmentation 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 chin augmentation surgery, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
Chin augmentation with the use of implants is a procedure used to correct a weak chin due to heredity, age-related bone resorption or facial trauma, resulting in better balance of the facial structure and a more attractive look. A weak chin can make the nose appear larger and may also give the appearance of a ‘fleshy’ neck.
Chin augmentation is most frequently done by placing a small implant over the area of the chin that would benefit from enhancement. An outpatient procedure, the incisions used are frequently placed inside the mouth to leave no visible scars.
