    I am 49 years old, Filipino descent now residing in Toronto, Canada. I had the following done in the Phils on Nov 2010 under the care of Dr. Edwin Paul Magallona: BrowLift, Blepharoplasty (eyelid), Rhinoplasty (nose tip) and Breast Augmentation. I met a few Canadian Plastic Surgeon but with the cost, I decided to have it done in the Phils. I choose Dr. Edwin Paul Magallona, after a thorough research online amongst the finest Phil. Certified Plastic Surgeon because of his quick response to all my inquiries and questions regarding the surgeries I intend to have and not to mention his credentials, experienced and association to big and reputable hospitals in Metro Manila.
    We’ve exchanged several emails regarding multiple surgery procedure, cost, pros and cons, deposit, pre-op requirements, recovery time and all related issues. I am confident with Dr. Mags and decided to push thru and booked my surgeries with him. He also booked my hotel reservation at Lancaster including the pick- up and drop off to Managed Care Phils. Clinic.
    Dr. Mgallona met with me at the hotel on Sunday on they day of our arrival for consultation and briefing. The surgery is scheduled the next day. I first met Dra. Marie Jeanne Vera who explain the pros and cons of the procedures, review medical history and current condition. Then met with Dr. Jess Garcia, the internist, to assess my medical condition and gives the go signal with the operation. I was then led to the operating room where I met Dr. Mags, Dr. Vera and the 3 nurses: Leila, Blessie & Weng who comforted me prior to the operations as I was very very nervous. The surgery went well, was send back to the hotel, bought all the medications prescribed for the recovery with 2 nurses who stayed with me for the first 8 hours after the surgery. The first 48 hrs. was critical but only had minor pain. As for the post follow up check up – received a call from Dr. Vera Vera on the first day and Dr. Mags visited me at my hotel on my 1st and 3rd dayStitches were removed on the 7th day and last day prior to departure. Dr. Mags also send txt messages to check while in the province.
    Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Edwin Paul Magallona and the staffs of Managed Care Phils. and definitely go back to him for other services in the future. They are very professional, easy and approachable and on time…Dr. Mags is very flexible with your appointment…he always fit at the patient’s convenience. Dr. Mags did a great job with my brows, eyes, nose and breast…thou still a bit swollen…I am very happy with the results. I had an easy and fast recovery that on my 4th day I was already out at the mall. On my 7th day posted my new looks in FB and got a lot of compliments .
    Best regards to Dr. Edwin Paul Magallona and his staffs and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!…will send you update photos….More power to you all!
    God Bless,
