Everything you need to know about choosing your plastic surgeon

With most of us staying at home, staring at our unfiltered images for long hours, it’s not surprising that more and more are becoming interested in getting face and body enhancements. In addition, the timing could not be more perfect for a convenient post-surgery recovery period at home. 

But for anyone who is new to the idea of getting plastic surgery, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, or worse, be misinformed, with the dozens of options available. Take it from one of the most sought-after plastic surgeons in the Philippines, Dr. Lutgardo “Jun” Caparas. For over 24 years, Dr. Caparas continues to commit his expertise in providing medical services designed to enhance beauty, encourage confidence, and empower people from all walks of life. Whether you’ve been thinking of getting cosmetic, aesthetic, or reconstructive plastic surgery, here are a few, important things that you should consider before making that potentially life-changing decision. 

Plastic Surgeon

Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon

Finding an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step towards achieving your aesthetic goals. Ending up in the hands of an inexperienced doctor, on the other hand, may lead to poor results and loss of money. 

A board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jun Caparas has been in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery for over two decades. He is a fellow of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), Philippine Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (PAPRAS) and Philippine College of Surgeons (PCS). Considered as one of the busiest plastic surgeons in the country, Dr. Caparas has performed numerous plastic and aesthetic surgeries in the country, and is known for his expertise when it comes to breast augmentation and body contouring.

In 2012, Dr. Caparas and his wife, Dr. Maria Cynthia Caparas, started their own ambulatory surgical clinic, Zi Institute of Plastic Surgery and Dermaesthetics, to provide excellent plastic surgery and dermatological services.

Find a DOH-accredited clinic

Having the procedure done in a safe facility is just as important as finding the right doctor. At Zi Institute, you’re in safe hands. Zi Institute of Plastic Surgery and Dermaesthetics is accredited by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) to provide one of the most trusted services when it comes to advanced dermatology, plastic and cosmetic surgery in the Philippines. “At Zi Institute, patients are assured of only the best services. We customize our treatments based on what each patient needs, and we highly value the hospitality we give to them,” shared Dr. Caparas.

True to providing utmost safety and care to their patients, Zi Institute follows stringent safety protocols such as complete vaccination and weekly antigen testing for their staff, strict sanitation guidelines, and more.

“With Dr. Jun, I felt safe, secured, and pampered throughout the process,” shared Charity who has undergone rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty with Zi Institute. “For years, my nose has been my source of insecurity, but that changed because of Zi Institute and Dr. Jun. My plastic surgery didn’t just fix my nose, it fixed me,” she added.

SV, who went through breast augmentation, also shared how the whole procedure was made comfortable for her. “From the consultation, clinic visit, to post surgery care, Dr. Jun and the whole staff were professional and caring. I now feel more confident and good about myself, and I look forward to another surgery with Dr. Jun.”

A passion for changing lives

It’s no secret that plastic surgery can be a lucrative and glamorous field. But for Dr. Caparas, being a plastic surgeon isn’t just about aesthetics. Besides his practice, Dr. Caparas has been training future surgeons for 21 years, and actively participates in giving back to the community through surgical missions. “My mission is to secure a better future for less fortunate people, and make changes in their lives through plastic surgery,” he added.
