My experience with Dr. Pichet - July 25, 2009-
I have just returned to my room at the Atrium Boutique Hotel in Bangkok after my final post-op visit with Dr. Pichet for a BA+Lift revision.. The first one was done by Dr. Pichet in end of Feb 2009, but resulted in my not being 100% satisfied. If anyone knows my character, this is nothing shocking.
After the first surgery in Feb'09, all went well until I realized that once my breasts had dropped and fluffed (PO 3rd month), they were not exactly the same. Now looking back at my photos of before&after, I should have noticed this before, as I have a titanium rod in my spine, it was evident that this was something I should have told Dr.Pichet with more conviction. You see, I have one shoulder higher than the other and this is difficult to see unless you are told of it. I was so focused on the nipple incisions healing at the time, that I never stopped to check the shape of the breasts...
Sometime last May i began to consider taking up Dr.Pichet's offer to return to Bangkok and undergo a free revision. Upon my first visit to doctor Pichet for a BA+Lift (300CC-cohesive gel block, under muscle, areola incision) and a Mini-TT, I remembered having signed a contract stating that if I were not satisfied completely, a free revision could be performed. I then waited until June to see if I truly wasn't dreaming about seeing a pair of lopsided breasts in the mirror...and spoke to my husband. He knew I was unhappy about them but knew that no matter how many times he told me I was beautiful, my mind was set. Furthermore, both his mother and father are retired renowned plastic surgeons, so I really didn't want my breasts and tummy to become a topic of conversation at this year's Christmas dinner.
I must be frank, it also took me awhile to write this testimonial since I had sworn I would write one for the doc's website... but at the time back in Feb09, I was not entirely sure of the final FINAL end result, and i certainly didn't want to write one while I was uncertain about my feelings about Dr. Pichet's talents as a surgeon.
One thing is for sure, I would recommend Dr. Pichet for the procedures he has done in my case... His wife, Mrs Mao and the rest of his staff are amazing. For example, last Feb, due to my double surgery and annoying rod in my back (placed there 20 years ago), I found myself one night in my hotel room, UNABLE to get up! Splaying my limbs around like a cockroach on its back, I finally reached the phone, it was 9pm, and within 10 mns, a flurry of nurses had the door opened, they were running around cleaning up, fluffling pillows and fussing all around me...Seriously, where in the world would you get this type of service???? One nurse actually slept with me, and had to leave for med school classes the next morning, only to be immediately replaced by a 2nd nurse the next morning! Wow, I mean where in the world....?
Another day during my first 10night stay, a driver was sent to my room to deliver sleeping pills because I had run out...oh and, the day where I was accompanied by Mrs Mao to sit around Thai Airways offices for 3 hours to get my tickets changed!! No hospital staff has ever been, or ever will be (I am sure) be so caring and helpful with a patient. When you think that some patients come to an unknown country alone to undergo major surgery, trust me, it's a blessing to know that you have people who understand your needs.
This time around, the surgery was minor, a quick skin snip and stitch, so nothing major like back in Feb, but...and despite the fact that I wasnt paying for any medical services, the staff was just as accomodating as the first time...even a punctual phone call from Mrs Mao to check on my status everyday was very welcome. Again, I must say that I am a fussy person and I insited to my husband that I come alone. In the end, I knew from my first experience that I wasn't going to be totally on my own. Dr. Pichet's hospitality is nothing less than incredible.

To Dr. Pichet Rodchareon M.D.and staff.
I wish you to distribute my thank you to the appropriate
(translated as best you can to help understanding).
I wanted to write a special thank you to you Dr. Pichet
and all your staff who made my stay in Thailand very
I am especially impressed with Mrs Mao who helped comfort
me before my
surgery and as I got to know her I realized I am lucky
to know such a truly
wonderful human being as her, I can honestly say I came
to love her.
All the staff brightened up my stay in Bangkok and made
my surgery a much
less stressful experience. Thank you for making me feel
welcome, and caring for
me in positive manner. My affection for many of the
staff left me sad to leave
but I realized my life has become rich for having the
opportunity to meet such
Dr. Pichet too demonstrated that his interest was more
than business but
that he really cared about his clients.I want to say
thank you to all, you have given me a gift of making
better to meet such wonderful people, I am truly privileged
to have meet you.
Again my thanks and love,
Melinda from USA.

It's our pleasure to join with you. I have never worked
with as wonderful and caring a person as you are. Your
integrity and sense of duty to your patients is amazing.
I want to thank all of you staff for doing much, much
more than we normally get, here in the United States
to make us comfortable and help us heal.
Mr Hein is a true friend and was never failing to help
us in every way. From the time we arrived at the airport
to the time he dropped us off to leave, he treated us
like ladies in every way. I'm crying now because I miss
Mrs. Mao went with us to help us with the communication
difference. She is just like a mother to us. We knew
if we ever had a problem, all we had to do was call
her, and the problem was solved. We love her so dearly.
Tau, she always made us feel special. Always arranging
things for us to do, or asking us what we would like
to do and getting it done. She is a wonderful plus on
Teek, give her a kiss for us. From the entrance to the
hospital to, staying with us each night until we were
strong enough to stay by ourselves, she is an angel.
Making sure that we had no difficulties, she gave us
Won, always touching and hugging us, she is so sweet.
we don't get hugs like that from even our children.
It's so hard to be home, where people don't care. Won
cares so very much. we miss her.
Lek, Treated us each day with such care and compassion,
making sure we were doing things the right way. Joking
with me about boyfriends and keeping me happy.
She is so much more than a nurse. Nurses around here
should take lessons from her.
Moo, I saw her face at the hospital just before I went
unconscious from the antistatic, it looked so capable
and kind. I knew that she would be helping you through
my surgery and I felt at peace. She knows what she is
doing and it shows in her presence.
Ann, she went with Kaitlyn and I to MBK Mall and would
not let us carry anything. Helped us make wonderful
purchases and was happy to do it. She is a beautiful
person and makes us feel wanted and loved.
Mrs. Pochanee, your sense of direction and doing things
in perfect timing, gave order to all that happened,
while we were there. You, being Dr. Pichet's wife makes
everything work right. Great choice on the flowers and
birthday cake you gave Kaitlyn for her 60Th birthday.
She has never been loved like that before. She talked
about it much on the way home.
And finally, Dr Pichet, doctor, friend, work-horse,
cowboy and my family, it all starts with you. we knew
you were the right person for me, in doing the surgeries
that we needed to have done. You always answered my
e-mails, almost immediately and each one had a sense
of your personal touch. Too often, other people send
e-mails they did not write. But, you doctor, took the
time to answer each one by yourself. Your sense of humor
and love for what you do are what makes you so special.
Your ability to do it right and your sense of making
sure it is done right, gives working for a new wonderful
future to look forward to.
We know in our hearts that we will be remembered by
each and every one of you as all of are held in our
hearts in a way no one has been held before. We will
do my very best to make sure all we come in contact
with have a chance to feel what we have felt in being
Loving you all and still crying

experience from Dr.Pichet
Hi Dr Pichet, I wanted to tell you how happy I am with
the lipo you did for me. I feel incredibly motivated
about my eating habits and I have lost more weight since
I returned to Australia. The lipo has made me more aware
of what I eat now after seeing all the fat that you
took out. You have wonderful staff working for you and
I thank everyone for their kindness and helpfulness
during my stay in Bangkok. I hope to see you soon when
I come back for treatment.

experience with Dr.Pichet in Bangkok
First of all, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude
for the great transformation that you have done to me.
I regret that I have doubted your ability and work from
the website. as you mentioned, I should not believe
all that was written in the news letter. After meeting
and seeing your actual work thru the patient's that
I have met, you have proven to me your
great surgical expertise. While under your care, you
made me comfortable and treated me like a family. You
have a good team, your staff are all caring, helpful,
and hospitable. They all go out there way just to make
my stay in Bangkok my most memorable experience.

experience about nose surgery
Thank you so much for the excellent surgery and care
while I was there. I am very happy with the rersults
and have recommened you to two other people seeking
plastic surgery. People have already commented on how
much better i look and I can breathe much better as
well. I enjoyed my stay in Thailand and the people of
Thailand will always be in my heart as they were so
friendly and gracious hosts. I plan on returning to
see more of Thailand. Thanks also for the use of your
car and driver to tour the Grand Palace. Jame (not his
Thai name I know) was an excellent host and fun to be
