In line with the Philippine Medical Tourism program’s goal to promote the country as the “new hub of wellness and medical care in Asia”, the Manila Doctors Hospital, inaugurated its Aesthetic Surgery Center on March 8, 2007. The new Center aims to provide patients with affordable world-class aesthetic plastic surgery in a quality, ISO certified hospital.
Located in the heart of Manila, the Aesthetic Surgery Center is ideal not only for local patients, but also for medical tourists who favor having procedures done in a hospital setting. Foreign patients will benefit from proximity of the Center to numerous hotels and to many of Manila’s most popular attractions such as the Manila Bay, Luneta Park, Intramuros, Cultural Center of the Philippines, National Museum, and the Manila Cathedral. The Center’s central location will allow medical tourists the option of sightseeing and shopping while on vacation.
More and more patients have been choosing the Philippines as a medical tourism destination not only because of the quality healthcare services and skilled doctors and nurses, but also because Filipino health professionals are known to have a unique brand of hospitality, service, caring and compassion. They also speak English fluently ensuring the good communication that is essential for a comfortable experience.
The Manila Doctors Hospital Aesthetic Surgery Center, complete with its own out-patient operating room, has a team of highly qualified and experienced surgeons who will offer the popular cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhytidectomy (face lift), abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and more. The Center will also offer two of the latest technologies in skin care, the LPG Endermologie, and the Aesthera PhotoPneumatic Therapy device.
The LPG Endermologie, one of the newest noninvasive treatments for cellulite, is an FDA approved treatment which originated in Europe. This non surgical, painless process is used to reshape and contour the areas in the body which are resistant to diet and exercise such as the hips, thighs, and buttocks.
The Aesthera PhotoPneumatic Therapy device is a painless, light based therapy for the treatment of sun damaged and aging skin, as well as unwanted hair and unsightly veins. This FDA approved treatment is a safer alternative to other laser and light based treatments, and it is as effective, or even better than traditional therapies.
