First experience for SRS surgery in Bangkok, Thailand..
Dear Dr. Pichet|
Just thought I would take a few moments prior to leaving and thank you and your wonderful staff for a job well done. Having SRS can be an emotional experience, for one itís both exciting and scary, and for me personally it has been a spiritual experience.
I have been in transition for 31 years; there have been many times I have been financially fit to have surgery, but lack courage and faith. I didnít know this year would be the year, but after deep meditation and prayer I decided the time was now.
I Had looked at several surgery option both in and out of the United states (Where Iím from), I went as far as to contact several surgeons to inquire about SRS surgery, consulted some post opt transsexual girlfriends and each had a different experiences, and suggestion by the end I was dizzy and confused.
One Sunday I came home from church and there in the inbox was an email from you something in my -spirit said ďthis is the oneĒ.
I am pleased and delighted with the results. If someone is looking for a surgeon Dr. Pichet and his staff is the best. Bangkok Plastic Surgery (BPS) went above and beyond my expectation; my hotel stay at the A. Suites was the best. Please extend much thanks to the owner Mr.Ku who is just a God send, and his staff for their fine accommodations, service and hospitality.
Thanks again for your hospitality, professionalism and kindness.
FFS experience and breast surgery with Dr.Pichet in Bangkok.
Hi Dr Pichet
I just wanted to say a huge thankyou for the excellent job you did on
my face and breasts. I am so thrilled with the results that I will go
out of my way to publicise to a number of transgender groups on the
web the excellent results that can be obtained by coming to you. I
also would like you to convey to your staff the excellent service and
friendly way that I was treated during my stay here in Thailand. I
enclose a couple of pics here as testimony to your marvellous skills
as a plastic surgeon. The results are far better than anything I
could have hoped for.
Thanking you again for the excellent results
Once again I want to thank you for your surgery. You really are a miracle worker. Did you know that you have changed my life already and for evermore. I am like a new person with this new face. And by chance we chose together the most perfect breast size for me. Every day I stare into the mirror and marvel at your skills and expertise.
I went to you slightly skeptical about the results i might get but you have have really changed my life and I want to say one more time a big thank you. Wow I couldn't have wished for better in my wildest dreams...

lie on my back. What a
