The place is tidy with a cozy ambiance. The consultation room is very relaxing, the space is not cramped, and the doctor is warm and accommodating. I had one session of Laser brightening peel on my face which I highly recommend! It lessens oiliness and breakouts and leaves a remarkable glow on the skin. Thumbs up for this procedure, It's a winner!
I've done multiple medical check-ups with MMC as well as when my dad was confined for a few weeks there. Place was well kept clean, signs and staff are friendly and answers to questions well. Their services are prompt and the doctors and staff are very professional.
The main lobby will give you a feeling of being in a resort or hotel lobby. The newly open Central Park will be an extra treat, an amenity area that will give patients and visitors the feeling of being at home in their own garden. Doctors here are the best in the country. State of the art facilities and high tech medical equipment. How I wish every Filipino can experience the medical care and assistance at Thé Medical City.❤️ March 4, 2020, I went to the Ambulatory Service Center- as usual long line but patients are comfortably seated and patiently waiting. I have been on food and water fasting for my blood extraction. Not to over fast I approached the lady at the counter 4, to let her know of my situation. She was so quick in attending to my concern and never ask for anything, not even my ID or HMO. She accompanied me at the blood extraction area and everything I need was well taken cared of because of her. Thank you very much Ms. Maria Concepcion Calayan Golla for your kind assistance and compassion. Keep up the excellent work. May your tribe increase. All the best!❤️

Also known as Forehead Reduction, Forehead Contouring or Scalp Advancement, Hairline Lowering Surgery allows patients to lower their frontal hairline. It is most commonly done on women with high hairlines, often the result of hair loss.
The procedure usually takes a couple of hours and is performed under general anesthetic. The new hairline is marked on the forehead, the surgeon will cut away this excess skin and the scalp is lowered to the new hairline. Incisions are strategically placed to minimize the visibility of the scar, making it virtually undetectable as it's covered by hair. It's common to combine hair lowering surgery with Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS).
Hairline lowering suregry is performed under local or general anesthesia. Before the operation begins, the surgeon draws an anticipated post-operative hairline. The surgery is performed according to this and an incision is made along the hairline. The excessive scalp is cut and removed and the rest is stretched to the new hairline. If this is not enough, tissue expanders are used to make it to the new hairline level. Sutures are used to fix the scalp to the bone and incisions are stitched with bandages being applied over the top. The incisions are placed where the hair can regrow, making the scars invisible. With further growth of the hair, scars will completely disappear from view.
Hairline lowering surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. After the effects of the sedation subside, you are allowed to leave. Still, you should aim to stay in Philippines for at least 6 days post-op. During this period, you will have a follow-up with the surgeon to check everything is healing as expected and the sutures are removed, usually after 5 to 6 days - this is when you're given the all-clear to travel home.
It will take between 3 to 6 months to allow the regrowth of hair through the scar, which is important as it hides the scar. Recovery time varies from person to person and some people can get back to their normal routine even after 3 days. At least a week is usually required to get back to normal activities and you may find some swelling and bruising over your forehead in the early days. Pain is managed with painkillers and all symptoms subside after a couple of days. A numbing of the forehead is common and normal feeling usually returns after 3 to 5 days.
The following are some useful aftercare tips:
The success rate for hairline lowering procedures is very high and the side effects are minimal, but it's worth considering that the scar may be visible with certain hairstyles. Hair Transplantation could be applied to further reduce the appearance of any scarring. As hairline lowering surgery becomes more popular, more females, particularly, are opting for the procedure and to date, no deaths have been reported. Hair thinning from Shock Loss can occur immediately after the operation, but this is only temporary.
Surgery is not the only option. Consider these methods before opting for surgical treatment:
