What You Need to Know When Planning Your Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Instant Guide to Cosmetic Tourism in Bangkok     So if you have decided that you want a cosmetic procedure or even SRS then you have probably begun to search the internet and perhaps already considered traveling abroad? Europe offers some much cheaper options and some websites often indicate relative prices across world destinations but it is a little more difficult to actually find these deals as all sorts of extras are added on to the basic cost and often the price is dependent upon various conditions. There are some options like South America and India to consider. Low prices and exotic destinations are tempting but in my opinion they pale in comparison to Thailand and Bangkok in particular. Here’s why: Any country that has a largely rural population like India or Thailand are likely to be less sophisticated than western countries in terms of hygiene, communication and transport as well as accommodation. In any research I have undertaken in this area I have asked myself one question: ‘Would I be content for Annie, my partner, to undergo surgery in this clinic, with this surgeon or in this destination’? Only if I can answer, ‘Yes’ will I suggest anyone else do the same. I would not encourage Annie to travel to India or South America or even to some clinics in Thailand. Because the very elements I mentioned above; hygiene, communication and transport are some of the most crucial to a successful cosmetic surgery outcome. However, all is not lost! Although Thailand is a rural society in which even beach resorts are often subject to power cuts and transport...
Our Bangkok Clinics

Our Bangkok Clinics

Experience all that Bangkok can offer at our clinics     It goes without saying that we spent some time with our surgeons before we decided that we could make an excellent partnership. Wit, patience and a sense of humour are important but these qualities,  in tandem with great expertise, experience and education make our surgeons popular choices among foreigners seeking cosmetic or dental advice in Thailand.   Trust me when I say I have listened to several highly regarded surgeons in consultation with patients and that none of them come close to offering the kind of detailed advice and suggestions that you will receive from any of our surgeons. Non medical staff at the well appointed clinics are also very professional,friendly and capable. Our clinics are in the heart of the city surrounded by the fascinating street life and ‘high society’ shopping that makes Bangkok special. Our clinics are ‘one stop’ Plastic Surgery Centres in Bangkok that offer cosmetic, dermatological, anti-aging, holistic, and dental services including surgical procedures. While most people are aware that cosmetic surgery can be less expensive in Thailand they may not be aware of the sophistication, innovation and expertise available here. Price is not the only reason to travel to Thailand for your cosmetic surgery. As the global demand for Plastic Surgery increases our centres keep a competitive edge by having internationally trained surgeons in charge, international research, highly professional nurses and capable, bi-lingual administrative staff to ensure that every patient experiences the kind of hospitality and service that only Thailand can offer. Our clinics offer plastic and cosmetic surgery and laser treatments, dental...

How Annie & David can help to make your Beautiful Transformation a Reality

So when googling for SRS or cosmetic surgery in Thailand the names of a few surgeons appear again and again. Dr Suporn, Dr Saran and Dr Chettawut as well as Dr Thep. Are they the only doctors practising gender reassignment surgery in Thailand? Of course not, but they are the better known surgeons. There is another name even more luminous than they; Dr. Preecha Tiewtranon is the pioneer in sex reassignment surgery in Thailand He performed his first SRS in 1975. Founded by Dr Preecha, sex reassignment surgery has been taught in Chulalongkorn University Hospital since 1983. (At present, it is the only medical school in Thailand that has sex reassignment surgery being taught systematically) Dr Preecha trained all the other surgeons in his pioneering technique. Since the 1970’s there have been many developments in surgical techniques which have created better and better results as knowledge and technology has advanced.   When contemplating which surgeon to use there are some considerations to take into account. Which surgeon is the best? Every surgeon in Thailand and the rest of the world has operated on patients who were not happy with the results. I am not suggesting that surgery is a kind of lottery and if all the right conditions are met by you regarding your health prior to surgery it is unlikely that there will be any problems. But surgical and post surgical problems do occur, usually through no fault of the surgeon. Neither Annie or I have a medical background. We cannot influence the outcome of the actual surgery. However, we will only recommend the surgeons we feel are...

 My Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand   David Bonnie CEO of MCOST talks about the reasons he and his partner Annie Andasuk embarked on the business and what they can do to help you.  “Back in 2012  after living in Thailand for a few years a lot of people we met on our travels suggested that we start a business helping people find safe and affordable cosmetic surgery in Thailand. They remarked on their own experience of ‘not knowing where to start or who to trust’. We didn’t know much back then apart from the experience of Annie and her friends. But after a lot of research we decided to start our business and help friends and new friends in getting the best cosmetic surgery procedures available in Thailand. That was several years ago and since then we are delighted to have helped lots of people on their adventures here in Thailand.”   As well as the relative cheapness of cosmetic surgery there are many other reasons for choosing to have procedures done here in Thailand. More than 89% of medical tourists traveled to Thailand, India or Singapore in 2010, with Bangkok and Singapore leading the pack. But the cost of hotel rooms and treatment are both far more expensive in Singapore than in the Thai capital, making Bangkok the most popular place for medical tourism in the world. Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is serviced by airlines from around the world, reasonably-priced hotel rooms abound, there is reliable public transportation and 30-day visas for many nationalities are easy to get upon arrival, all of which help to make a stay —...
