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

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 endeavours 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...

Annie & David, Your Hosts

 Annie and David featured in the acclaimed Sky Living TV series, Ladyboys. After the unprecedented success of series one of Ladyboys, Annie and David decided to form My Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand together. David talks about the reasons they embarked on the business and what they can do to help you.  Ladyboys was filmed here in Thailand. You can find out more about the series by visiting us here After we finished filming the first series of Ladyboys, several transgender girls in both the US and UK contacted us because they enjoyed the series and wanted to come to Thailand and meet us. We are often asked if we were in a TV show by strangers in Bangkok, Samui, Krabi and other places we visit. Lots of those people asked us about breast enhancement surgery, cosmetic surgery and sexual reassignment surgery. We didn’t know much back then apart from the experience of Annie and her friends, but after a lot of research we are able to guide you in finding the best cosmetic surgery procedures available in Thailand. Very often transgender girls and ‘regular’ girls we met 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 invite you to start here and to trust Annie and I! 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...
What Type of Breast Implants are the Best?

What Type of Breast Implants are the Best?

    Here is a pretty concise review of the three main types of breast implants. Shaped silicone implants, the smooth round silicone implants and the saline implants — all of which are good implants. There’s not one implant that’s better than the others. It’s just a matter of what’s better for you depending on what you’re looking for and the results that you’re hoping for. You’ll first notice that the shaped implant looks white, because it’s textured. It’s got a rough surface. The reason for that is that we want it to stick to where we’re putting it. We’re put it in and we don’t want it to rotate, because that’s gonna look kind of strange. It’s got a rough surface and it stays where we put it, which is an advantage if that’s what you like. It’s a little firmer than the other gels. It doesn’t move around. Normal breast tissue when you lie down will kind of move off to the side. When you stand up, it will change shapes. This implant is made not to do that. It’s gonna stay where we put it and be a little bit more of a youthful appearance, which is great in women who don’t have a lot of breast tissue to start with and looking for a proportionate outcome that is on the firm side. It’s the gummy bear implant people often refer to. In conclusion, this type of implant is perhaps best for a smaller augmentation that is going to be fixed in position even when your body moves. The other implant is the gold standard, which...
Feminising Cosmetic Surgery

Feminising Cosmetic Surgery

Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery Nose Augmentation is type of cosmetic procedure that is very common among Asians and non-Caucasians to correct a flat nose with a round bulbous tip and flaring nostrils. The aim is to build an aesthetically pleasing nasal bridge with an elegant projection and well defined nasal tip, and at the same time narrow the flaring nostril base. An implant is usually used. The implanted material is biocompatible and extremely safe. Incisions are made inside the rim of the nostrils. Soft tissues of the nose are then separated from the underlying structure to create the appropriate space for nose implant projecting the nasal tip and increase the height of the nose. The procedure works equally well on Caucasians and can give you a beautifully defined bridge with correctly proportioned nostrils and septum.   Forehead Augmentation Surgery Overview: Forehead Augmentation or Forehead Contouring Surgery  is a cosmetic surgery involving a patient’s forehead area from the upper eyebrow to the scalp line and from one side to the other of the head. When a patient undergoes a forehead contouring surgery, the earlier mentioned facial area is made slightly smoother and less protrusive. An incision begins at the hairline. Following this, surgeons usually use bone cement to perform the augmentation. If the surgeon locates bony irregularities and protrusions in the brow area, these will be smoothed out as well. The incision will be closed using medical staples to give the patient an aesthetically pleasing and smooth appearance. Operation time: The duration of the surgery usually takes about 2-3 hours. Care after surgery: Forehead dressing is place on at the end of...

Phaholyothin Hospital

Phaholyothin Hospital

Annie and I have spent a lot of time visiting various Bangkok hospitals both as patients for minor ailments and on fact finding missions. Although there are lots of clinics and hospitals offering cheap cosmetic services,  Care, Expertise, Friendliness, Safety and Value were the qualities that we wanted to find in one provider. Lots of clinics offer cheap surgeries but in our opinion are not safe or clean or do not offer care consistent with western hospitals. Several nice hospitals offer all the above except value, well unless you are a Thai national and then your cosmetic procedure will cost less then half the cost for a foreigner. We thought long and hard and asked lots of questions before feeling we could recommend any single hospital or clinic. Phaholyothin International Hospital officially opened its doors on the 22nd July 1987. A leading medical provider in Bangkok, the hospital is continually developing state-of-the-art operating rooms such as the newly opened Hybrid Operating Room that provides crucial treatment for patients requiring heart surgery. It is conveniently located within walking distance of Sanam Pao BTS Skytrain station. Sanam Pao is about 10 minutes ride from Silom, the central business and entertainment hub of Bangkok  and about 15 minutes from Asok and Nana stations, Thonglor and Ekkamai, arguably the most popular nightspots in the city. Take a look on this clickable map. Comprised of two buildings joined by a walkway, the hospital promotes healthcare under the philosophy of, “ Creating a world in which people have the power to control their own well-being.” Not only are patients provided with an exceptionally high level...
