My recovery was not smooth sailing because the left scar kept bleeding

1.5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: ₱165000

I had my breast augmentation in August 2018. During consultations, Dr Karlo told me that most patients regret not going bigger but I still stuck with what I had in mind even if he didn't have sizers. Come surgery time, he mentioned that it's a bit pointless to get a boob job if it's not noticeable but he still chose a modestly sized implant around 285cc. I didn't really want noticeable breasts but thought that size would help achieve the look I wanted. My recovery was not smooth sailing because the left scar kept bleeding. I also noticed my left boob fluffed later than my right one. Eventually, it bottomed out and sat lower than my right boob making bending over very uncomfortable as I feel the edge of the implant dig in my skin. Moreover, my scars are in the lower middle part of my boobs and are visible which makes me self conscious especially in saunas and when getting massages. I did have a revision in August 2019 with him to address the bottom of out. Paid additional 15,000 for it but it still had the same results. Its 2020 and my left boob sunk back to its previous level. Got a second opinion and was told the breast pocket might have been carved out lower than it should have been given my body size.

All in all, I paid around 3300 USD exclusive of the maintenance meds. The upside is Dr Karlo is very responsive when you message him but now I have to do another surgery to get smaller implants, make sure they're even and have the scar much lower than they currently sit.

I’m almost one-month post-op now and I love the result

5 50 Breast Implants

If you want to have the best result and be completely satisfied with whatever beauty surgery you want and need then you’re in the right place and surgeon. Doc, Karlo Capellan did my breast augmentation on June 19th, 2019. I’m almost one-month post-op now and I love the result, my experienced there was super comfortable and his staff are very friendly. when we were there I wasn’t even nervous - we were just excited, happy and just laughing with the staff. I felt comfortable with Dr Capellan and the moment I spoke to him I knew I made no mistake on choosing him and I will only come back to him if ever I need more surgery in the future. I’ve found a surgeon I can trust that will give me positive result with ease and comfort.

Thank you again, Dr Capellan, for a successful, safe and positive result surgery with my breast augmentation.

All in all, the rhinoplasty is one of the best decisions I ever made

5 50 Rhinoplasty • Paid: ₱50000

I had my rhinoplasty 4 years ago (Feb of 2014). So far, my nose is still good as it was post-surgery. Except for the occasional paranoia (i.e. when I get pimples), I've never had a problem with it.

As for Dr. Karlo, he is probably the most professional and accommodating doctor I know. In fact, up to this day, I still am in touch with him. He replies even when the operation happened four years ago!

All in all, the rhinoplasty is one of the best decisions I ever made. I would definitely recommend Dr. Karlo if you're looking for a plastic surgeon. Worth all the money and the pain.

Best clinic ever!

The nurses were very accommodating and Dr. Capellan is a great doctor

5 50 Rhinoplasty

I ran an internet search to find a clinic that could do rhinoplasty. The procedure was worth the price and I’m happy with the results.

At first I was nervous about the surgery, but once the healing process started, I was okay again. The nurses were very accommodating and Dr. Capellan is a great doctor.

I just want to thank the doctor for this good experience

5 50 Rhinoplasty

After reading positive reviews about Dr Karlo on the WhatClinic site, I decided to have rhinoplasty done with him. It was my first time ever having an operation, but the doctor really made me feel comfortable. So far, the treatment has been good value for money - the work done has not been dislocated or anything like that.

Everything at the surgery looked really modern - there’s an operating room and they’ve even got a drugstore at the facility. The doctor explained everything to me in terms of results and when to expect them. I needed two follow-ups after the operation just to remove my stitches. There were no prices online, but they emailed the prices to me when I asked. I just want to thank the doctor for this good experience because I was a little scared at the beginning, but he took such good care of me.

He is one of the most humble doctors I’ve seen and he is super friendly

5 50 Alarplasty, Nasal Tip Surgery

I had Alarplasty & Tipplasty surgery with this clinic. I chose Dr. Capellan because he is one of the most humble doctors I’ve seen, he is super friendly and you can Viber him 24/7 — he would always make sure to reply especially with your concerns.

He is super patient NO DOUBT especially with my post op, I Viber him every day for a month sending him my updates about my nose. He replies with a positive note and calms me down.

It has been 2 months and it’s the best decision I made to eliminate my insecurities with my nose. So look no further — Dr. Carlo Capellan is one of the best cosmetic surgeons out there. I’ve talked to arrogant cosmetic surgeons and Dr. Carlo is definitely not one of them. This is not a fake review.

Made me feel at ease

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation • Paid: ₱120000

Made me feel at ease before the procedure and made sure I am physically and emotionally ready for the operation. He gave me a heads up of what to expect. And best of all is that he will personally contact you after the operation to check on you and make sure that you follow post op care.

I definitely recommend.

I now look younger by like 5 years

5 50 Plastic Surgeon Consultation

Lower blepharoplasty and chin liposuction.

Love the results of lower bleph. No more tired eyes. The great thing is, at two weeks post op, no one even noticed I had the procedure.

Four weeks after chin lipo, jaw line became more prominent. Still have some lumps, but everything is as expected as this procedure really requires 4-6months to see the final result. I can see the gradual progress each day.

Overall, no regret in getting the procedures from Doc Karlo. Thanks to him, I now look younger by like 5 years. :)
Well equipped and sanitized.
