One of the most common signs of the aging face in both men and women are puffy eyebags under the eyes, giving a tired and haggard look to the face. The bulge in the lower eyelid area is caused by fat tissues and loose skin. This condition can be corrected by blepharoplasty, or eye bag removal surgery. The procedure is frequently performed together with upper eyelid surgery to create a more youthful, fresh look to the eye area. It can also be performed in combination with a face lift. Eyebag removal surgery 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.
Cosmetic surgery such as blepharoplasty is very affordable in the Philippines. Lower overhead costs and professional fees makes it possible for our board certified, 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.
