Thailand’s Best Surgeons

Thailand’s Best Surgeons

Most Thai Doctors are very proficient in a range of surgeries but unlike many Travel & Surgery organisations, we take our knowledge of our surgeons seriously. You will always have your surgery performed by the surgeon you meet at the consultation. Here are some of our favourite surgeons. We like them because they are great communicators, have great good sense, will challenge your ideas if they are not what is best for you but are excellent surgeons whose work we have experienced with lots of happy clients.     Dr.Vitusinee U-dee, MD Dr U-dee is very approachable and communicative as well as possessing great skills of analysis and common sense. She is a great listener and can help you achieve your cosmetic surgery aims. •    Doctor of Medicine Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand – 1997-2003 •    Member of the Medical Council of Thailand •    Member of the Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of Thailand Residencies: •    Plastic Surgery, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand – 2006-2011 Overseas experience: •    International Visiting Scholar ASAN Medical Center, Seoul, Korea – Dec 2010 •    Observership Microsurgery and Craniofacial Surgery Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan – Feb 2011 Work Experience: •    General Practice, Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand – 2003-2004 •    Intern General Surgery, Department of Surgery, Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand – 2004-2006 •    Attending Staff, Plastic Surgery Department of Surgery, Ratchaburi Hospital, Ratchaburi, Thailand – 2011-2012 •    Plastic Surgeon, Naravee Aesthetic Clinic, Bangkok, Thailand – 2012-2013 Awards: •    3rd Place in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery residency paper presentation Attended: •    International Symposium of Minimal Invasive Plastic Surgery &...
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 surgeon’s 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-ageing, 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 services, anti-ageing therapy, holistic and...

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...
Gender Reassignment Surgery (SRS) Male to Female

Gender Reassignment Surgery (SRS) Male to Female

Surgery Overview:Male to female Surgical Procedure: Male to female Sex change surgery involves the removal of the penile muscle and testicles reshaping it to appear more female thereby constructing a vagina. An incision is made into the scrotum, the flap of skin is pulled back and the testis is removed. The skin is stripped from the penis but is left attached and the urethra is cut. The excess skin is used to create the labia and the vagina.Operation time: The surgery usually takes 6-8 hours to complete according to the extent of the procedure.Care after surgery: ·        After surgery patient should remain on bed for the first 24 hours. ·        The surgeon will perform the necessary care and do the dilation at least 2 weeks. ·        Patient must dilate to achieve the desired depth and width of the newly made vagina. ·        After each dilation session with the doctor, wound dressing should be performed to speed up healing process. ·        Patient should avoid strenuous activities which can interfere with the circulation. The vaginal packing, all drains and urinary catheter are usually removed on the fourth or fifth day following surgery. ·        Increase fluid intake at least 8-10 glasses per day to promote urination. ·        Wound dressing is done daily to prevent infection. ·        The surgeon will remove the stitches after 5-10 days. Recovery period: The patient should stay in Thailand at least 2-3 weeks to complete the whole process and allow proper healing and at least 1 week hospital stay for observation and management. Patients can resume taking hormonal medications in 10-14 days after the surgery. Consult the doctor for advice...
What are the best ways to get around in Bangkok, Thailand?

What are the best ways to get around in Bangkok, Thailand?

If you are visiting Bangkok you will need to travel around the confines of the city. It’s easier than you probably imagine for such a bustling city. This little guide may save you time, money and help you remain sublimely ‘sabai’ (relaxed, happy, comfortable) while you travel, sightsee or commute! 1. Airport Links/BTS (Skytrain)/MRT (Underground, Metro, Subway)   The click-able map below shows The Airport Link, which is part of the Bangkok Transport System anyway but usually referred to as a distinct entity from the BTS (Sky-train) and the MRT (Metropolitan Rail Transit) or the underground train and the way it can link you to various parts/districts of the city. Suvarnabhumi Airport, pronounced A.I.R.P.O.R.T (sorry!) Soovan-a-boom is to the east of the city and you will see that the line is made up of 3 lines; one yellow, one red and one blue. Check out the map as there are two express lines and one city (regular, slower) line.The express runs about every 15 minutes or so and the city line every 5 minutes or therabouts. Anyway, you will be on Thai time by now and taking life a little slower if you take my advice. Most folks are advised to catch the airport link to Makkasan where the light blue line intersects and you can transfer to the MRT from there or get a cab to your hotel as Makkasan is close to the area of lower Sukhumvit road where most travelers choose to stay. However, I recommend you stay on the Airport Link line until you reach Phaya Thai station, where the broad green track of the...
