Deciding to embark on a journey towards self-improvement through plastic surgery is a huge decision.  In turn, perhaps the most important decision you will ever make as a patient is who to trust with your procedure.  While a multitude of aesthetic clinics boasting expertise in cosmetic surgery abound in the Philippines, it is important to bear in mind that even individuals without a medical license may put up such establishments and attempt to perform procedures.  At The Icon Clinic, you are assured of the highest standards of practice, with all procedures being performed by its founder, Dr. Eric C. Yapjuangco, a Diplomate of the Philippines Board of Plastic Surgery (PBPS) and an active Fellow of the Philippine Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (PAPRAS), the only Society accredited by both the Philippine Medical Association (PMA) and the Philippine College of Surgeons (PCS) to practice in the field of plastic surgery in the country.  Dr. Yapjuangco has a wide and varied experience in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, and has also trained in the most recent advances and innovations in cosmetic surgery techniques.
