Years ago, a nurse named Glysa shared her OR experience while assisting a doctor at the Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital. During the operation the patient began to bleed heavily that caused the surgeon and the team to worry. The surgeon asked the staff to immediately call Dr. Maria April “Doc April” Lumuthang-Froilan, the first female surgeon in Bohol and the former chief surgeon of Gallares hospital, for help.

“She looked stunning in simple jeans and t-shirt,” said Glysa. “She was so relaxed. Just an instant diagnose, the bleeding stopped. I was amazed! What a great surgeon!”

Last year, Doc April went to Pan Pacific Aesthetic Institute (an organization consisting of seven well-respected cosmetic surgeons in the country and the first to offer a formal training program in cosmetic surgery), to study cosmetic surgery.

Now, Doc April is set to share her experience and knowledge on beauty to Bohol and nearby provinces by opening her first clinic Touch of April tomorrow, August 11, at Bohol Medical Care Institute (BMCI) in Dao District, Tagbilaran City.

It’s not enough to be born beautiful. You have to do something to keep yourself that way.

Ask Doc April, now Bohol’s first cosmetic surgeon.

“Life is beautiful! We want to see beauty everywhere,” exclaimed Doc April.

According to the Pan Pacific Aesthetic Institute, the promise of youthful look and vibrant beauty brought about by cosmetic surgery among both the female and male gender and its greater acceptance of the public has prompted many doctors to enter and specialize in this field.

There is no need to go to Cebu or Manila for cosmetic surgery because Doc April is equally competent with those cosmetic surgeons in imperial Manila.

My visit to Doc April’s clinic last Thursday was “howlarious,” “naughty,” and “daring”! There was no restriction asking Doc April unnerving questions that delve into, would you believe, body parts (such as, ehem, size and the like).

You must have noticed at this point that today’s story is a bit “sanitized” (yes, PG is needed) to avoid offending the sensibility of some readers. VRS is treating the subject as clinically as possible, especially the following extreme procedures “for men” and “for women” only.

Dr. Maria April Lumuthang-Froilan is now ‘beautifying’ Bohol’ as the only cosmetic surgeon in the province.

Doc April’s Touch of April surgicenter offers noselift (rhinoplasty), nosetrim (alarplasty), eyebag removal (lower blepharoplasty),  slit eye ( upper blepharoplasty), cleft chin creation, dimple creation, buttocks augmentation, vaginal repair (vaginoplasty), virginity restoration (hymenoplasty), penile enlargement/lengthening, ear reconstruction (otoplasty), breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck lip reduction, chin augmentation, warts/mole, keloid removal, botox injection and glutathione injection.

According to Doc April, rhinoplasty (medical term for nose jobs) procedures are performed on women and men. Since the facial bones are fully matured and stable by the age of 16, the typical age range of persons undergoing rhinoplasties is from 16 to 60 years old.

Doc April had already three patients who underwent nose jobs who are extremely happy with the result.

“More than the aesthetic benefit to enhance their physical appearance, they regain their self-confidence and realize their self-worth,” revealed Doc April. “And it is safe.”

Tummy tuck is the removal of excess wrinkled skin, subcutaneous fat (the fat between the muscles of the abdomen and the skin) to tighten the abdominal musculature.

Breast enhancements come in many different forms - bust lift, breast reduction, reshaping and augmentation.  
“Breast augmentation is for women who want to look better and more comfortable with their bodies,” said Doc April. “It is to create a breast more appropriate and most natural to one's overall body physique.”

Tired, puffy or dropped eyes can make us look differently from how we really feel inside. Through eye bag removal, the eyes can give others a glimpse of our mood, thoughts and well-being.

 “Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction or weight loss,” warned Doc April. “Rather, it is an ideal for those who have already lost weight but still have stubborn bulges despite extensive dieting and exercise.” The procedure shapes up the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks and arms by removing excess fats in these areas. Liposuction is also ideal for post-pregnancy bulges.

The extreme makeover “for women only” is veiled in secrecy. Giving birth, aging and obesity can cause stretching and looseness of the muscles well “down there,” so Doc April is offering vaginal repair (vaginoplasty) and virginity restoration (hymenoplasty).

“Vaginoplasty is a procedure that aims to "tighten up" a vagina that's become slack or loose from vaginal childbirth or aging,” said Doc April.

Virginity restoration is also known as hymen restoration which is a simple procedure that stitches back together what a moment of passion might have shattered giving girls with a past a new future. Doc April turns sexually experienced women into surgical virgins.

But it isn't just women wanting to have their breasts made bigger or their noses made smaller, but also men who want to have the package.

How about the six pack abs?  Many men want them, but few actually have them! People work out for years trying to get ripped abs, some are successful, and some are not.  According to Doc April, for those that are unsuccessful, there is a solution.

“Liposuction can be used to give you the definition of a six pack,” revealed Doc April. “I rather call it liposculpture because liposuction is an art. It gives you the sexy 100% you and natural.”

The penile enlargement is “for men only.”

“Is bigger really better?” asked Doc April.

It seems that penis size has been a source of male anxiety throughout history and across cultures. Those men who “are not gifted” can have penile enlargement.  A penoplasty consists of two parts which can be done together or individually. One procedure adds thickness, the other adds length.

“We maintain the utmost in patient confidentiality,” assured Doc April.

Patients must have a pre-surgical consultation and thorough examination prior to the surgery. Individual needs and expectations are discussed at this time. Patients are individually counselled and educated on what to expect, including possible risks, benefits, and options.

“Your transformation starts here at Touch of April,” said Doc April.
