It’s not always having a great and sexy body, sometimes we have to undergo through this procedure to experience life. Life with better  a perspective and attitude.

Lipoplasty, or more popularly known as liposuction, is one of the most in-demand surgical procedures not just in the Philippines but around the world. It has been adopted by many medical practitioners especially those without formal training because of the simplicity of extracting fat from the unwanted parts of the body. But Dr. Edwin Paul V. Magallona warns patients who want to have liposuction to not do this because there are many complications of plastic surgery done by an unlicensed surgeon.

For Dr. Magallona, risks from liposuction such be minimized using the best equipment, procedure and care for the patient. What sets Dr. Magallona apart from other surgeons is that, he makes sure that his patients experience only the most comfortable pre and post surgery care.

Since the Philippines is fast becoming a medical tourism destination for many foreigners, Dr. Magallona wants to uphold this reputation by giving his patients only the best care pre and post operation. He has done countless plastic surgery procedures to Filipinos and foreigners that is why, he is the most trusted Philippine plastic surgeon by medical tourists.

With its growing popularity in the country, Dr. Magallona makes sure that his patients are educated enough about liposuction. Since this is one of the most life-changing decisions a patient has to make, he first evaluates their emotional and mental stability. There are some instances wherein he rejects a patient if he deems that she/he is unstable in both aspects; instead, he advises them to try other alternatives.

Liposuction, or any other plastic surgery operation for that matter, is not the easy way to achieve a “perfect” body. Dr. Magallona firmly believes that it is just the first step; instead, a combination of an exercise regime, healthy diet and a positive outlook in life is still the winning formula to have a fulfilling lifestyle.


According to, 73% of people say that Liposuction procedure is worth trying. Many of the respondents said they will recommend the procedure to their friends. Some are elated with the result of the procedure. To quote one of its respondents, “I am 31, 5″5, 180 pounds. So, far I have lost 20 pounds. I have always had what appears to be two sets of butt cheeks. As I have continued to lose weight it becomes more and more evident that it is not going anywhere.” Statistics- Philippine Plastic Surgeon

You Can Have Liposuction if…

According to, a leading healthcare related information provider, a good candidate for liposuction should have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure as well as these basic health and body qualities which include:

  • Average or only slightly above-average weight
  • Firm, elastic skin
  • In good overall health
  • Concentrated pockets of fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise


They added that patients with poor skin quality (cellulite) are not good candidates for liposuction because they may develop skin irregularities due to under- or over-correction of localized fat deposits. Age is generally not a major consideration when discussing liposuction; however, older patients often have less elasticity in their skin and thus may not achieve the same benefits of liposuction that a younger patient with tighter skin might achieve.
