yes please. This is also one of my goals after i give birth this September. I have tried sending inquiries and reading sa mga forums to gather information. Sis Mikage, sold ka na ba sa surgical procedure? I'm also considering the non surgical treatments sa Sexy Solutions to get back in shape but wala pakong nababasa mashado about how effective their treatments and programs are. Meron mga marketing releases pero gusto ko yung ordinary women talaga na feedback para mas realistic ang expectations :D

May friend akong pumunta kay Belo yesterday and sabi daw ng doctor meron na raw machine na nakaka-firm up ng skin right after liposuction and immediate ang effect and hindi na babalik ang patient for another session of skin firming. meron nga kaya talaga into? Sabi ng friend kong surgeon, wala namang ganion, baka naman misunderstanding lang yon. Pero just want to ask, may narinig na ba kayong ganong machine? Gusto ko kasing pa-lipo soon ng tummy and arms and ang inaalala ko lang baka mag-sag sobra ang tummy and arms ko and pangit tingnan and ayoko nang maghintay ng super tagal for the skin firming treatments. Thanks!

Ah ganun ba, sis? Have you consulted a doctor na po ba? Eto I'm still doing my research as to the best and most effective way to lose my post pregnancy weight. Gulong gulo na rin ako sa dami ng options. Haha! Hindi ako makapag decide between surgical and non surgical. Either way, mapapagastos talaga! huhaay :D

Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: Cluelesschx on July 17, 2013, 11:59:37 pm
hi sisses sorry couldn't reply earlier, I went on a week long holiday with the  family (10 in all!) and swamped with work when I got back kasi nga matagal ang naging leave ko.

Not doctor's wife, nor relative nor am i endorsing my doctor. Just an ordinary patient who underwent lipo. Im sorry can't post right now I have an early trip (2am) to Cabanatuan later, this weekend I will be posting my experience for the information lang ng mga sisses :)

Just a quick info, I had three procedures done all at the same time/day. Rhinoplasty (or basta nose job hehheh me implant na), yung pagtanggal ng taba sa cheeks at lipo sa tummy area including sides.

All in all I spent 250K. parang the lipo was 160-180k.  In a span of one week lang kasi ako nagdecide nito dinaan ko sa lakas ng loob kasi actually takot ako sa turok. Ang main purpose ko sana talaga is nose job, e tuturukan pala ang nose ng anaesthesia e hellllo ang haba ng karayom at mataba kaya nagtanong ako kung pwede general anaesthesia (yung swero first tapos me gas mask), e ang mahal ng additional for the anaesthisiologist (tama ba spelling? hehe) plus 25k daw. so nagtanong ako ano ba pwede isabay na procedure, lipo nga daw tapos na convince na ako patanggal din taba sa cheeks. buccal fat removal if I remember it right. I had it done july last year (2012).

ang tagal ng procedure was 6-8 hours more or less. Hindi ko na masyado matandaan talaga. basta nasa clinic na ako (not in a hospital pero impressive ang mga equipment para na ding nasa ospital. as in me ikinabit pa sa dibdib ko pag monitor ng heart rate) ng mga 9 am. nagsimula siguro 10 am tapos hapon na ako nag out.

According to the doctor ang tinanggal s akin na fats ay 8 liters. hindi ko na tiningnan so thinking back, baka naman hindi totoo pero posible din talaga kasi mataba naman talaga ako.

hindi pa ako dapat magpopost kasi nga aalis ako in two hours kaso hindi ko napigilan. Hopefully this weekend I can post na mas detailed.

 :D ;) :)

Hello mga sis, since 2010 pa ako member, silent reader lang ako. Let me share you my experiences sa Liposuction. Last December, I had a lower ab/flank liposuction sa isang dr sa quezon city. I won't mention his name, kasi I was really disappointed sa outcome. He used TT local anesthesia technique.Medyo mahal din sya, sabi nya it's okay kahit lower ab lang gawin. So, it costed me 90k. During the procedure I felt the pain on some part, but I have already expected it kasi I opted for local anesthesia. I was already worried about the outcome but I did exercised patience since namamaga pa sya. After two months, visible na yun irregularities, yun left side kita na di pantay yun pag liposuction nya. Also, the lower abdominal part starts sa navel, pero habang tumatagal at nawawala swelling, nagiging noticeable na yun liposuction one inch below the navel at bumababa pa hanggang naging parang 2 inches lang un opart na ni-lipo nya sa lower abdominal ko. I told him about that and also sabi ko I also want my back done. Well, after for months, I have an abnormal looking tummy, really weird!!! and I hate it that I cried everynight and felt robbed. Buti na lang di ko na pinagawa yun back ko.

So last May, I went to Belo Medical. Ayoko na kunin yun free retouch nun first doctor. If malaki palpak nya sa unang gawa. Chances are, ma butcher na ako second time. a revision is supposed to be minor lang.  Dra Buse was my new doctor. I had bodytite of my upper abdominal, redone my flanks (Since the first dr. did a poor job on me ), hips, arms and my bonus part, dinaanan uli n Dr Buse yun lower ko, para ma tighten daw ng Bodytite and also some part of my mid back. It costed me around 240k under twilight (including bodytite fees and garment). I had no recollection of the surgery and and sarap ng tulog ko. Pag-gising ko tapos na. Super alaga ka pa ng mga nurses. Then I have free ultrasound. 3 or apat lang nasa agreement. Pero I had more than that, sabi nila pag nadadaan ako Makati, I can have ultrasound for free ulit. Wala pa 2 weeks kitang kita ko na curve ng katawan ko. I have never been so happy with my body. I am now going 10 weeks post op,may mga times na super sexy ako..may mga times na bloated ako. But I understand part ng healing yun. Patience lang talaga. Come to think of it, yun 90k na binayad ko sa first doctor sana nagawa na rin yun full back ko :(

Moral of the story; piliin nyo talaga yun doctor na gagawa sa inyo.

my friend inquired regarding cankle liposuction, price quote from dr. Ferdinand lacson's clinic was 15k per area. I researched on this surgeon's background at mukhang ok naman credentials nya, wala lang ako mahanap na feedback or reviews from his patients who underwent the said procedure. im a bit tempted to try kaso im hesitant parang 15k per area is too good to be true? baka mura nga pero im worried sa outcome ng procedure..:-\

Those people I saw who underwent liposuction became unappealing due to their skin folds as a result of this procedure. But some patients don't mind.
However, the safest and sure way is to exercise and burn those fats in the gym. Work your way to a beautiful and healthier body.  ;)

Post by: momtrepreneur on September 17, 2013, 01:59:03 pm
I am really thinking about liposuction.  For those who've had consultations or have had lipo, how much kaya for whole body lipo, I mean arms, tummy, back, sides, legs etc?  Besides body tite of Belo, can u recommend doctors pa who are good?  Also do doctors/clinics accept lay-away? 

What are the risks?  How long is the recovery?

Thanks
Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: Cluelesschx on October 03, 2013, 02:49:00 pm
^ Sis meron naman sa Belo site na me mga nagtatanong ng price sa lipo, nasa comments section parang ganun Hindi puwede ang whole body na lipo in one go kasi per area ang ni-lilipo at maximum of four areas lang per procedure. Three months ang interval ng bawat procedure. 

Example ng areas:
 upper tummy
lower tummy
(tummy) sides
side upper hips or back

Basta lumped together na yung mga pwedeng gawin, 4 areas lang lagi.

From my experience, recovery na tolerable na talaga ang pain is mga 10 days. pero 5 days after ng procedure pumapasok na ako pero hindi magalaw.

Ang concept naman ng lay away (pag sa gamit) is huhulugan mo muna tapos pag kumpleto na saka mo makukuha ang gamit, tama ba? So parang nag ipon ka muna saka ka nagpagawa.

Ang Belo is tumatnggap naman ng credit card.

Risk: hindi ko masyado masagot, besides yung usual na pwede ikamatay (nga ba hehe), parang wala naman akong nakita o naranasan na risk. Basta wag sa mga mur-mur siguro hehe

Final note: OO babalik ang fats kung wala kang change sa lifestyle after. pero hindi ko naman nararanasan (pa) na doble ang naging ikinalaki after ng lipo. 14 months ago ako nagpalipo, me taba na uli pero carry pa naman unlike before na mas matambok ang tiyan ko kesa sa boobs ko....

Any recos?
Title: LASER LIPO (arms and other body parts)
Post by: ilovejdy on October 05, 2014, 10:07:10 pm
Belo has this procedure called laser lipo arms and madami din celebrities na nag-eendorse like Jennylyn Mercado (tama ba spelling ko? haha sorry) and Ruffa G.

This is one of the procedures na super interesado ako since I have bulky (amazona) arms that is not proportion with my petite body. Super awkward talaga that I can't wear sleeveless tops.  Tried exercises and dieting.. and nothing works.

I hope those who tried this with their arms share the experience here. Dami
ko questions like after the procedure. hindi naba tumaba yung arms nila kahit maggain ulet ng weight. Say nabuntis after months of this procedure or basta nag gain lang ng weight.

My cousin said that a friend of hers that did some lipo procedure kahit tumaba ulit, proportion na ang pagtaba (she did lipo sa tummy) and kahit tumaba may shape padin ang waist.

Please share naman mga sis.
TIA

I just underwent smartlipo for the tummy, back and arms. I weigh 130 lbs. I dont look fat naman but my tummy is big, my upper arms are big for my size.

I underwent smartlipo as a gift to myself this christmas, also encouraged by  the very long holiday weekend.

The next day after the procedure i can drive na- i dtove back to the clinic  for the nurses to change garments and clean the wounds.. The night after the procedure was the hardest.

I just wanna ask how important are compression garments. Ive read somewhere it aids in the contouring. I have a bolero-style compression garments which i think i have to wear for 24/7 for a week then nighttime na. The binders naman parang 1 week ko susuot? I can always ask my doc but i just wanna know your  experience.

Thanks
Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: ataypool on January 02, 2015, 10:27:08 pm
I did not use a compression garment; I had Spanx and a binder on my stomach. Yes, 24/7 too for the first week and nighttime for the succeeding 2 weeks. Corset pinasuot din sa akin on daytime when the wounds were healed. I bought my corsets from Bench.

It gets very itchy after a week, sign of healing. Better to stay in an airconditioned room when sleeping. Sobrang kati pag pinapawisan ka. I did not take any anti-itching medication. Lots of water lang to cool myself and of course loose-fitting clothes.

Post by: gumdrops26 on July 16, 2015, 05:41:08 pm
How is the recovery? Sa bahay ka lang ba for, let's say a week? Can you take a bath at all? Is laser lipo or body tite bloody? How long did you have to take pain killers?

I might get this done after our 2nd baby but of course, I wanna know how hard (or easy) the recovery is...
Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: ataypool on July 16, 2015, 06:08:05 pm
With me, first 2 days sa bahay and wala ginagawa. You need help with changing the dressings of the incision sites and it was bloody for 3 days. Painkillers for one week, mefenamic acid and bromelain to aid with bruising.

Third day naglalakad na ako sa mall pero one body part lang naman kasi.

Makakaligo ka on the second day kasi mainit and makati due to the compression garments.

Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: ataypool on August 05, 2015, 07:06:33 am
^^almost 300000 pesos din kasi i had fat transfer to the breasts. I asked the surgeon kung simple lipo lang was 175000 pesos. Sa akin kasi tummy then sabi ko gusto ko rin flanks and back just above the butt kaya nadagdagan charge.

Wala naramdaman during the procedure kasi general anaesthesia and sedated. Nagising ako nasa recovery room na. First meal after waking up just soup. Recovery one week nag-Boracay na ako pero light walking lang.

Napansin ko lang na if I don't exercise for 2 days or eat junk, I gain fat not on the tummy but on my inner thighs and butt. Ganyan na talaga kabagal metabolism ko now I'm 41.

Wow the prices aren't to bad. Ineexpect ko mas mahal pa talaga. Ako din I want to go under lipo especially sa tummy ko and arms kaso I'm afraid of scarring.

And my former boss discouraged me from getting it done kasi his wife apparently went for liposuction and naging sobrang saggy daw nung tummy afterwards.

Hope other sisses can share their experience pa

Hi. I had done a pubic lift and liposuction surgery in Montreal (  http://www.drfoudaneel.com/pubic-lifts-liposuction-procedures-montreal/ ). The downtime was quite annoying but after few weeks, I felt much better and the transition was amazing.

Post by: thesis_gal on October 05, 2017, 11:12:08 pm
I have been a member of this forum for ages and I just wanted to share my legit experience.

I was thinking of going for laser lipo but it may or may not yield the result I wanted so I opted for liposuction. I was given general anesthesia, I was really worried and scared of not waking up, especially with the news about a model who had 3 surgeries and died due to fat embolism.

So I consulted with my preferred doctor, agreed on the price, and nilakasan ko n rin loob ko like the other poster - I had 3 surgeries in one go.

I did not feel anything during the procedure - I woke up and its done, medyo groggy at first, so I slept uli, woke up, had soup and walked around with a nurse, tapos hinatid nila ako sa unit ko which was great!

It's Day 2 post surgery - I am bloated and in pain, I will update you on the progress and kung ok ba ang craftmanship ni doc!
Title: Re: LIPOSUCTION
Post by: cosmeticsurgerygirl on December 20, 2017, 05:47:49 pm
Liposuction is recommended for patients with excess or redundant abdominal skin and/or laxity of abdominal muscles. To be a good candidate for this procedure, patients must be physically healthy with a stable weight, have realistic expectations, do not smoke, and do not have any uncontrolled medical illnesses. I had my liposuction  in Manila with fabulous results!  My surgeon is Dr Rino Lorenzo. I would definitely recommend him. I think he is very good.

It is basically a cosmetic procedure to remove fat that is unable to remove via dieting and exercise. I am planning to take liposuction for my double chin area as, after many workouts, fat is still there. My aunt had gone through from this procedure last year. Right now, she is using a waist trainer. Here, you can read more about how waist trainers help after liposuction.

Sis, hello, saan ka nagpalipo if you don't mind and kumusta na siya ngayon? I'm planning to do it in Thailand din kasi way lower daw ang fees. Thanks.
