Cosmetic surgery has become a $20 billion industry worldwide. According to the latest Global Cosmetic Surgery and Service Market Report, North America accounts for 45 percent of the global market and Asia is fast catching up as the “next frontier” for the practice.

The Philippines is following the Asian trend with the increase of aesthetic centers that offer surgical and minimally invasive procedures at competitive prices. The practice has gained mass appeal over the years, and is no longer just associated with celebrities and people from high society. These days, anyone who needs an extra boost of confidence can turn to aesthetic procedures for help.

For Drs. Al and Grace Jaafar, the husband and wife tandem that founded Neu Advanced Aesthetics, cosmetic surgery is a work of art, something that brings great satisfaction to both patient and surgeon.

“Doing these treatments is more than skin-deep. We don’t just make a difference on the external part – in many ways, cosmetic surgery also boosts the self-esteem of patients and allow them to have confidence,” said Dr. Grace.

Neu Advanced Aesthetics, a new generation clinic that offers both invasive and non-invasive cosmetic treatments, adopts an artistic and non-traditional approach on cosmetic surgery with patient-centered values.

Dr. Al, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who practiced General Surgery for several years before shifting to surgical aesthetics, said the clinic’s mission is to provide better results to clients by incorporating advanced medical innovations and technologies that deliver safe and remarkable results.

“Rather than just focus on the usual surgical techniques or medical procedures, we also integrate technological advances such as the use of new machines so that our patients have the option to choose procedures that would have amazing results, faster recovery time and a wide safety margin,” he said.

The clinic’s major expertise is in cosmetic surgery procedures such as rhinoplasty, eyelids/eyebags surgery, facelifts, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, power-assisted liposuction (PAL), and VASER liposuction (UAL).

Non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures offered by Neu include body contouring using the only non-surgical option for liposuction, US FDA approved Liposonix, RF body contouring and skin tightening treatment (Accent Ultra Contour V and V LIFT), mesotherapy (Lipodissolve), micro needling, fillers, Botox, PRPs and facial treatments.

Neu Advanced Aesthetics also offers services for Cosmetic Gynecology headed by Dr. Grace, who has background and extensive experience as a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist as well as vast training as a cosmetic gynecologist. It is one of the few cosmetic surgery clinics in the Philippines to provide both surgical and laser procedures for the female genitalia.

Dr. Grace, who is a certified senior member of the European Society of Aesthetic Gynecology, is among few Philippine doctors to specialize in this field. Among her major services are vaginoplasty, labiaplasty and FEMILIFT non-surgical laser vaginoplasty.

Dr. Al said Centuria Medical Makati’s modern technologies and superior medical facilities such as the laboratory (Advanced Lab Solutions by Hi Precision), operating rooms (The Surgery Center) and executive recovery guest suites allow Neu’s team to do the procedures in a safe and time-efficient manner.

“One important difference of Neu with other cosmetic centers is the location. Since we choose to locate at a world-class, one-stop medical arts building complete with brand new facilities, our patients don’t have to go outside the clinic to undergo several tests before proceeding with the operation making it more convenient to them,” he said.
