London lady patient had a good experience about the body lift with Dr.Pichet
Dear Dr. Pichet and Staff,
Having recently lost a lot of weight, I decided to have a tummy tuck, a breast lift and an arm lift. The excess skin had been worrying me for some time and I knew that I would not be happy until I had done something about it.
About three years ago, I had been to Harley Street to have breast implants. While the work was faultless, it was expensive and I found the attitude of the doctors and staff very clinical. Aftercare was not something they specialised in.
My family and I had been on holiday in Thailand, when I saw an advert for a plastic surgery clinic. The prices were incredibly reasonable and I decided to research the possibility of having my procedures done in Thailand. My husband was totally against it. He thought that it was more prudent for me to have it done in England, where he thought the medical facilities were the best. I continued doing my research. I wrote to a few surgeons and I had a friend that lived in Bangkok, who did a bit of asking around as well.
And after eventually convincing my husband, I was on a plane and off to Bangkok. Dr Pichet made sure that I was met at the airport. I arrived at an immaculate Clinic with the most incredibly caring and wonderful staff. I had my procedures done in the most professional and attentive manner, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Even though you are far from home, you never feel alone. There is someone to take care of you in the Clinic and Mrs Mao is a darling who makes sure that your every whim is catered for. All prices are inclusive and you literally don’t pay for anything extra. Food, tests and transport were all laid on for me. When I became a little better, Mrs Pichet arranged shopping trips for me and nothing was too much trouble.
I could give you a detailed account of everything and everyone, but this would be unnecessary. Suffice it to say that I could not recommend Dr Pichet highly enough; I am already planning another trip!
Carol-Ann from London ,British
American lady patient had a good experience about the face lift and body lift with Dr.Pichet
Dear Dr. Pichet and Staff,
Thank you all so very much for your kindness and care of me while I under went such a big surgery. My tummy tuck, arm lifts, chin lift, back liposuction and face lift all turned out beautifully. Dr. Pichet is a wonderful Plastic Surgeon and his attention to details made a huge difference to me. Never before in my long life have I been treated so well and with such kindness, patience and professionalism. When I got Bronchitis, Dr. Pichet got me a Lung specialist and when my Blood Pressure went a little whacky, I got a pulminary specialist. He saw to my every need and desire. I would recommend Dr. Pichet to anyone. Especially, anyone I love.
Dr. Pichet has the best communications skills in BKK. I have received emails, text messages, and heard from Mrs. Moa for every appointment. I was never left unattending in any circumstance. Never at the hospital or the hotel unless it was my idea. Dr. Pichet's driver really does pick you up at the Airport and takes you back. He really cares that much about your well being.
Thank you again Dr. Pichet for a wonderful, exciting and perfect result. Until we meet again,
Sincerely and Sawadee Kaa,

Surgery with Dr.Pichet
my experience in Bangkok
To all who are considering Dr. Pichet as their surgeon,
please read this. My name is Kristy Lace Worley, I was
in Dr. Pichet's clinic in October 2002 for gender reasignment
surgery. It has now been a year since my surgery and
the only reason I waited so long to write my testimonial
about my dear friend is because of the doctors here
in the United States. I was told that I would not last
two months after surgery and I waited to prove to all
that they were wrong in their diagnosis about me. The
Dr.s that would consider me for surgery had a waiting
list that would have put me waiting for two to three
years away. Being 46 years old at the time, I believed
that I did not have that many good years left to have
my life as a female, so time for me was of the essence.
When I wrote Dr. Pichet it was out of desperation and
was hoping that he would just write me back. When I
recieved Dr.Pichet's e-mail I was almost afraid to read
it because of all the rejections I had previously. With
a broken spirit and heart I gained enough strength to
read what he wrote me. I opened up the e-mail and as
I began to read it the tears of joy and happiness ran
down my face. He was so sweet in his letter to me, telling
me he would be happy to help fullfill my lifes dream.
It was a gift from God when he sent me that e-mail.
Dr. Pichet is not only a doctor, but he is also an angel
in disguise to all that need this surgery. His staff
is also a group of caring people that have nothing but
the patients best intrest as their first objective.
They make your stay there as comfortable as they can,
which was important to me because I went alone. Not
knowing how to speak the language and being in a foreign
country was a little overwhelming, but their love and
kindness made all the fear go away. I am very happy
with my life now, and will always be indebted to what
Dr. Pichet did for me. His love and care for the transexuals
needs are beyond compare. He is a gift from God to us
that are caught up in this mixed up world of transexualism.
I do not wish that who all read this just take my word
for it. Do your research, but you will find that you
will find none better. As for cost, he tries to keep
all costs down to a minimum.But to me it was not the
money. It was his love and care that he shows to all
his patients that make him a wise choice. I hope that
someday all his patients could go back there at one
time so we all could meet and pay tribute to a man that
well deserves it. I do plan on moving to Thailand to
live as soon as I can. I not only fell in love with
the Dr., staff, and his family, but the country as well.
So someday I hope to see you there. You will be happy
with your decission. With all my love and deepest admiration
do I write this, and I know in my heart that if you
make going there your choice you will feel the same.
May God bless you all,
Surgery with Dr.Pichet
|Dear Dr. Pichet,
First and foremost I'd like to thank you for the wonderful
experience I had when I visited Bangkok and scheduled
two procedures with you. I would like to commend you
for your patience, dedication, professionalism and commitment
to give me nothing but the best in terms of medical
and personal treatment. I have never met a doctor so
kind and attentive to my needs. Thank you for giving
me adequate information prior to the procedure, and
giving me a fair and unbiased view of what I was about
to go through. From the day of surgery to my discharge
and recovery, I felt like I was merely on a brief vacation.
Your staff as well, including Mrs. Mou, were extremely
friendly, encouraging and caring. They were all smiles
at all times, and treated me like a friend from the
very start. Everything I needed from medicines, to small
supplies were handed to me on time. Never, at one point
did I feel any bit of discomfort or pain. I was even
strolling and doing a little shopping around your beautiful
city right after I was discharged. The hospital was
excellent, and the nurses were equally caring and professional.
I would like to note your choice of naesthelogist (I
didn't get her name), she made me very comfortable before
the procedure.Also, thank you for answering my late
calls, numerous and seemingly endless emails, and other
concerns. You are TRULY a doctor of such great caliber.
God bless you and your practice.

Surgery with Dr.Pichet
my name is Robin. A 42 year old recently post-op transsexual.
My partner and I have been together for 26 years, married
for 23 years and closer now more than ever. This is my
story and opinions of my Thailand adventure with Dr. Pichet,
I hope they help you in your decisions.
I recently returned from Thailand where I was under
Dr. Pichet's care from August 13th 2003 through September
I had extensive surgery and I'm VERY happy with the
Dr. Pichet, his staff, and the results. I had SRS with
colon resection, full facial feminization (FFS) surgery,
and breast implants. The FFS surgery included full brow
lift, upper and lower eyelid, complete nose reshaping,
lip augmentation, jaw reduction, chin reduction, cheek
implants, and adams apple shaving.
The man is wonderful! He really cares about you as
a person and not as an income source. He spent 4 hours
going over the surgery plan with me, and another hour
or so doing an examination in his clinic the day after
I arrived. I then was taken to the hospital where he
had head x-rays, chest x-rays, and heart tests done
to confirm my health status. Once the tests were complete
I was admitted to the hospital into a fantastic private
hospital suite. This room was about 30 feet by 20 feet
in size with a mini kitchen and with a full view of
the city. I had a nursing assistant assigned to me (no
extra cost) as a companion even thought my spouse came
with me. This wonderful girl stayed with my spouse while
I was in surgery and intensive care, even slept in the
room with her to keep her company. Once I was back in
my room she took care of me as my personal nurse, a
service that just cannot be found in the USA.
With Dr. Pichet you pay a flat fee for his services,
including the hospital charges and all medical costs,
there are no other "charges" that you must
pay for except your hotel room once out of the hospital.
He and his staff come to you in your hotel as necessary
twice a day, and then when your ready provides a personnel
taxi service to bring you to him wherever he is, the
hospital or the clinic. The doctor even provides your
meals, which you order through his staff each day (Thai
food, KFC, Pizza Hut, McDonalds etc). He will not accept
money for this, he tells you that he knows youre in
a foreign land and need extra care to feel at ease.
The doctor was concerned about the length of my surgery,
at 12.5 hours it was at that time his longest so far,
so at no additional expense to me he placed me in intensive
care for a day as a precaution before releasing me to
my hospital room. He even came back to the hospital
at 3 AM and slept in a adjacent hospital room one night
when I had stomach pains to be sure I was ok!
The surgeries all turned out perfect! I never ran a
fever and recovered quickly. Like I said above the doctor
pays for all medical care including medicines. He had
me on constant antibiotics for 2 weeks, IV meds while
in the hospital and then pill form once out. My SRS
results are, in my mind, perfect. I have over 6 inches
in vaginal depth and I'm using a size 6 dilator (1 5/16")
without problems. The doctor had me dilating the 4th
day after surgery and counseled me how important it
was that I did so at least twice a day if I wished to
be sexually active. The basic look of the neo-vagina
is acceptable but will need a secondary cosmetic surgery
if I wish it to be perfect at some later point. I have
great sensation at the clitoris and feeling throughout
the surgical area. Ive since experienced vaginal sex
with a man and enjoyed it immensely! Dr. Pichets skill
and the clinics staff support have allowed me to become
a complete woman at last.
The breast implants are even and look very good. The
bruising was very bad initially but has healed quickly.
The doctor does NOT place the implants below the muscle
so if you wish that procedure you should look elsewhere.
Things to think about:
The internet reviews I've read suggests Doctor Pichet
does not get great vaginal depth with a simple penile
skin inversion, and he does not do secondary skin graphs.
OPINION: Unless you are of VERY large length in your
penis you will not get great depth with a simple inversion
technique from any doctor from what I've learned. If
a depth of more than 2.5 inches or so is desired he
highly suggests sigmoid colon resection surgery, but
cautions you quite hard on the additional risks before
accepting your decision to go forward. Dr. Pichet does
not perform the colon resection alone, but brings in
a general surgeon to harvest the colon section and assist
him in its attachment.
If you are a smoker or heavy drinker be ready to quit
these activities before and while under his care. We
all know these activities are bad for the body and know
we should not do them after major surgery. If you are
overweight than loose the weight before contacting the
doctor, he will want full body pictures to evaluate
your medical readiness to go through these surgeries.
Common sense suggests you know these things, but the
doctor gets girls all of the time wanting surgery while
not following these simple medical requirements.
Be ready for an adventure in a foreign country, this
is not the USA, as almost everything will be excitingly
different. Be prepared to talk with the doctor over
and over as necessary to get your wishes clear. He speaks
very good English but some concepts don't translate
well. Remember he lives in Thailand and his primary
language is Thai. Keep communicating until you and he
are talking the same thing. Youre contacting him for
the price savings and because of recommendations such
as this one, accept the challenges that go with your
Learn about the risk of blood clots. The surgery, hospital
stay, and primarily the long plane flights add up to
a significant risk of blood clotting. On my return flight
I did not get up and move around enough and ended up
with a pulmonary embolism, a serious blood clot in the
lungs. This put me back in the hospital for 3 days and
is a very serious life threatening condition. I can
not stress enough that you should consult with your
home doctor and doctor Pichet on this issue! There are
things you and your doctors can do to greatly reduce
Do's and don'ts
Don't expect Dr. Pichet to do anything that a USA doctor
will not. Don't expect that the doctor is God, each
body will heal in its own way. Plastic surgery is an
art first and a science second. You very well may get
an infection or heal slowly with no fault of the doctors.
Don't expect that there are no risks in getting these
surgeries, there ARE RISKS. Worst case is you could
die on the table or you may not get the final results
you are looking for in the end.
Do contact many doctors to get their opinion on what
is possible and best for you. I contacted 7 doctors,
5 in Thailand and 2 in the US before continuing. Do
contact the doctors previous patients, I contacted
6 of Dr Pichet's previous patients before deciding I
would trust this man with my life and my dreams. Any
good doctor will get you the information necessary to
contact his previous patients, if not, go elsewhere.
This doctor in an honorable and caring man first, a
very good plastic surgeon second. I highly recommend
him and his staff as a possible candidate for you. Thailand
is an adventure that is not to be missed, I can see
no reason to pay the extreme prices for a US doctor
and miss the adventure of Thailand as well.
If you have more questions or wish a more detailed
and candid review of Dr. Pichet please do not hesitate
to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SRS experience with Dr.Pichet in BPS from Catherine Simousek
30 March 2008
In December 2007 I came to Bangkok for SRS with Dr.Pichet.
Even though I had spent a long time planning this I was a bit nervous
about flying halfway around the world to someone I had never met and
whose skill I could only gauge by a friend I had met quite recent to my
decision to complete the surgical part of my gender transition. My
friend was quite pleased with her facial, breast, and Sex Reassignment
Surgery she had done by Dr. Pichet. She looks great and she feels great.
So, I did some more research and made my choice. I chose Dr. Pichet
Rodchareon and set my plans in motion.
When we arrived in Bangkok I was a bundle of nerves and Dr. Pichet and
his staff did their best to make me and my partner feel welcome and at
ease. We were driven from the new and very modern airport to a nice
hotel and were picked up the next morning and taken to the clinic. The
big day had arrived for me. BPS has a new clinic that was very clean and
professional looking. The BPS staff was always attentive and caring. I
felt I was in good hands throughout my visit to Bangkok.
The surgery went great and I was surprised at how little pain I felt
after the sleepy time drugs wore off. Throughout my recovery in Bangkok
the staff at BPS was fantastic, they even bought me a cake and sang
Happy Birthday to me. The trip to Kret Island was wonderful and the
atmosphere in Bangkok is very nice. People are very friendly and nearly
everyone smiles. The fried chicken and other food from the street
vendors is inexpensive and very good. If you learn a little Thai it is
very helpful for when you are out and about but the staff knows English
so no worries there. Another thing that I noticed was how very large
Bangkok was, but people were always friendly, unlike other large cities
The hospital staff was excellent and at times I was overwhelmed by
number of people looking after me and helping me heal after my surgery.
They helped me heal my new vagina but they also helped me heal inside
too. I am so grateful for all they did for me. It struck me how much
better the care was in Bangkok as opposed to the American health care
system. You will be pleased with the difference in attitudes and
attention you will receive in Thailand, a much better place to get
medical care in my opinion.
I must admit I made some of my decisions based on cost as I am of modest
financial needs and one must consider all the incidental expenses that
Dr.Pichet includes in his price such as vaginal dilators and medical
supplies. While price was only one the factors I considered when
choosing a surgeon you will want to consider the extra money the
incidental expenses would cost you in America as it all adds up. Why pay
more for less?
I made a calculated risk in choosing Dr. Pichet and I am happy that I
made the right choice. If you are considering any of the surgery options
Dr. Pichet offers all I can say is you will be very pleased as am I. You
will come for surgery but you will never want leave because the people
at BPS are awesome. Dr. Pichet and his staff made my dreams come true
and they can do the same for you. So, what are waiting for? Call or
write Dr. Pichet today and start down the path of turning your dreams
If I can do it. so can you.
Megan and I wish Dr. Pichet and his staff all the best.

Second trip for surgery in Bangkok Plastic Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand.
Well, let's see. This is #2 trp to bangkok. The firsty was 4 years ago to have my SRS. The experience was /is amazing. I was so very happy with the results of srs, the functionality, ( i orgasmed withing 2 weeks) was amazing. Tiik took care of me the first trip in the hopsital room. The Dr. sends a girl to stay overnight with you in the hospital . It is a wonderful secure feeling knowing you are safe. This trip was for labiaplasty, forehead lift and full face lift. I had also let dialation go as I had had personal issues ( cancer and divorce-married to a man right before the initial SRS-) so my depth eas not good. Dr Pichet gave me more depth and now I am happy. This time Tiik was promoted up and One(i think thats how you spell it) was in my room at hospital. It was nice to see Mrs. Pichet, elegant and so kind, Mrs Moa, who will get any need fufilled for you and check on you daly, Tok and the others .
You cannot go wrong with this clinic and Dr Pichet. The care that is given to you is unequalled in the world..From the pick up at the airport to the care at the clinic to delivery back home, hou are fawned over, and if there is anything you need, there will be som eone anticipating it and asking before you can.
The results of The Drs Work is Phenomanal, remember I said it was my fault I needed more depth, If i had been better at my personal home care I would not have needed that part of this trips surgery.
When you are sent home there are no more stitches, no more bandages, and while you are hear the girls wash and dry your hair(something that certainly helps in feeling better and recovery)
I stayed at Princeton Park Hotel. Last time the Gold Orchid. I would highly recommend either hotel. Both go out of their way to understand your needs and to make you feel comfortable. This trip I pulled out my castheter accidently while sleeping. I though their was alot of blood,(wanst really, just looked that way) I called the hotel opertator to call the clinic. The lady went out of her way to make sure I was okay, the Dr. contacted. The dr came immediately, cleaned everything up and I was as good as new.
The lady art the hotel asks me every morning If All is well. Such kindness and consideration is par for the course here.
Their are drivers at your call. Mr Hi took me to the Grand Palace. A more beautiful sight I am hardpressed to not Also to the Zoo) I love Animals.
Again I highly recommend this place, Dr. Pichet, His wonderful wife, Staff, Drivers, etc, as it is not just a surgical experience that is provided, it is a LIFE experience that is provided.
Thank you to all at Bangkok Plastic Surgery Center.
