I love my nose. My confidence got boosted

5 50 Rhinoplasty • Paid: ₱55000

Dr. James is great and very professional. I have to travel to the Philippines to have my nose done.

The appointment was scheduled but I asked him to have the said schedule be rescheduled. He said it is alright and I have to rest first. I was too nervous but he said everything will be alright. He is so accommodating, very friendly and knows what he is doing.

I love my nose! My confidence got boosted. The fee is very reasonable compared to other Surgeons in the Philippines.

Awesome! Staffs are nice, the center is clean and very accommodating.

Everything went well except for follow up

3.5 50 Eyelid Surgery • Paid: ₱6600

I travelled from Davao to Cebu to get an eyelid surgery. Everything went well there, but someone should give me a contact in Davao to remove the stitches. After several emails, the doctor himself got me in touch with people who could help me, and after 12 days I could finally get it removed here in Davao just before I returned to Cebu.

Everything went well EXCEPT for nobody was responding my emails, and as they promised contact someone in Davao who could remove my stitches. I have only good experiences with communication with the doctor himself, and so far it seems like he did a good job.

I'm very pleased with the results

3.8 50 Breast Implants • Paid: ₱140000

I'm very pleased with the results. Just one thing, the doctor didn't inform me about the size he placed after the operation and what brand. As he told me before the operation to give him a free hand on what will look best for me.. And I'm not sure if it is necessary, but he didn't give me a receipt or anything that will prove that the operation was done under his clinic should there be any complaints in the future. But all in all the experience was very good and expectation was met.

Asian Blepharoplasty, also known as Double Eyelid Surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that adds a crease on the upper eyelids, which is lacking in some Asian ethnic groups.



Blepharoplasty is the technical term for Eyelid Surgery.


Eye Lift

Eye Lift is the traditional eyelid modification procedure, which can give cosmetic and functional benefits.  Cosmetically, it will make a person look younger as tired and heavy-looking eyes are addressed.  Functionally, vision would improve as drooping eyebrows that impede eyesight are eliminated.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

Laser-Assisted Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses low-energy waves to melt fat cells so it can easily be suctioned.  Its often combined with traditional Liposuction, as it can draw in fat deposits that cannot be accessed with Liposuction alone.

Nasal Tip Surgery is a branch of Rhinoplasty that deals with reducing a pronounced and/or drooping nasal tip or elongating a flatter tip by removing a piece of the cartilage in the nose or adding cartilage grafts, respectively.


Open Rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasty is a Rhinoplasty approach that gives surgeons greater access to the nose by cutting the skin dividing the nostrils and lifting the upper portion back, exposing bone and cartilage.  Some surgeons find this method easier because it allows them to see what theyre working on.

Full Abdominoplasty

Full Abdominoplasty is the traditional Tummy Tuck.  It covers the standard area of the abdomen to be incised, tightened, and contoured.



Lipoabdominoplasty is basically a combination of Liposuction and Abdominoplasty.  Liposuction, just like Abdominoplasty, is shares a big part in this procedure.  The Liposuction stage here doesnt just refine areas by removing leftover fat commonly seen in typical Abdominoplasty, and its done before tightening begins -- not the other way around.


Mini Abdominoplasty

Mini Abdominoplasty is a more restricted type of Abdominoplasty.  In this procedure, a smaller incision is made but follow the same directions of traditional Abdominoplasty.



Vaginoplasty is a reconstructive procedure that restores the vaginal canal and its vital structures to their normal state.  Any defect or deformity may be caused by an acquired disease or congenital disorders.

Dr Willie Go

Job Title:
  Aesthetic Medicine Physician

Dr Go has been in private practice for 18 years, beginning in 1992, specializing in the field of anesthesiology. He is currently an anesthesiologist at NewLife Aesthetic Center, and the regional medical officer for Asia Pacific under non-profit medical humanitarian organization Operation Smile.

He recalls deciding to get into the field he specializes in today due to the many challenges that it comes with. He explains that each patient’s unique reaction to medication leads to the lack of a reliable, standard procedure that ensures the patient’s complete safety.

This fact, however, also brings him the most rewarding part of his profession: seeing patient’s positive reaction to the given medication. This, he says, is a testament to their trust and dependence on the importance and effectiveness of anesthesia. And seeing them happy after surgery, claiming they never felt any pain, is Dr Go’s greatest reward (and relief).
