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.

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...
Breast Augmentation in Thailand

Breast Augmentation in Thailand

  Breast Implant surgery typically costs $9,000 in the USA or approx £6,000 in the United Kingdom. That’s an average of the prices we have been able to find and is for implants only up to 400mg  in size. Many Thai Ladyboys go to a small clinic in Pratunam and although this kind of place is acceptable to Thai ladyboys and to some extent to expats like me who have lived here and got used to Thailand it is likely to be a horrifying experience for westerners. These clinics are cheap because emergency care and after care are not what westerners expect. A straightforward surgery and discharge the same day is typical and as long as there are no surgical complications like excessive bleeding. The surgeons that practice out of clinics like this do so because they cannot operate in hospitals because they are not licensed to practice as surgeons. We will only recommend surgeons and hospitals that are safe and equipped should complications arise. At the hospitals we recommend and many other hospitals in Thailand you can have safe and aesthetically pleasing surgery and walk away with beautiful new breasts in a matter of a few hours. I can attest to that as Annie’s are better than the real thing! Ladyboys usually come home after their breast enlargement surgery and stay in a room with a friend if they are lucky while they recover. The incisions are made in the armpit and heal leaving a hidden scar. The aftermath of the surgery is often much more painful than people imagine and you will need some TLC if you...

Makeup can usually be applied, and patients will start to resume some of their activities.Risks and complications: Full facelift surgery is a very common procedure and complications are rare, but can happen.

How do I choose what size Breast Implants to have?

One of the most difficult decisions that you will have to make after deciding to have Breast Augmentation is what size of Breast Implant to choose. Many factors go in to your decision about the size of your Breast Implant. Of course you have to rely on the advice of a Plastic Surgeon who is experienced at Breast Augmentation, but ultimately you have to make the final decision as to what size of Breast Implant you will be happy with. Easy Test Methods to estimate the best Breast Implant Size for you. • The Rice Test- This simple and effective test is one that you can do in privacy at home and is one of the best methods for you to see what different sizes of Breast Implants will look on you. It involves filling a non-Zip Lock plastic storage bag with a measured amount of rice, placing the bag into your bra until you have a size you are comfortable with, and converting that amount to cc’s of the implant. (cc’s or cubic centimeters is the unit of measure used to size Breast Implants.) See the conversion table below • 1 cup = 236cc • 1/2 cup = 118cc • 3/4 cup = 177cc • 1/4 cup = 59cc • 1/3 cup = 78cc • 2/3 cup = 156cc • 1/8 cup = 30cc • Placing A breast Implant Into your Bra- This is a common method used by many Plastic Surgeons however it is not nearly as accurate as the Rice Test. The Breast Implant does not conform to your breast shape and does not accurately show...
