Surgery with Dr.Pichet
|18 Feb 04
Hi Dr. Pichet!
We just wanted to say hello and let you
know that we have now been home for 10 days, and our recovery/healing
is going very well! We want to say THANK-YOU very much for yours
and your staff's hospitality and excellent care while we were there.
We are pleased with the results from the surgery, and would recommend
you to anyone who would also like tummy tucks, breast lifts, or
ANY type of cosmetic surgery.
We would especially like to send a VERY
SPECIAL THANK-YOU to Ying and Mao, for taking care of our needs
while in the hospital, and in the hotel. The food that was delivered
to us nightly was absolutely delicious!! We also would like to thank
Ahai for transporting us all over Bangkok's hot spots. :-)
We wish you and your staff continued Success, and we can't wait
to visit your beautiful country again. Thank-You!
Priscilla, Jeannie & Linda
, his patients and his colleagues
girls performed breast surgery with Dr. Pichet in Bangkok.
Just want to say Thank You to Dr Pichet & also let you know
how happy we are with our Breast Augumentation Surgery. (My girl-friend
also had surgery)
From the moment we arrived, Dr Pichet & his staff were very
helpful & always smiling.
My girlfriend & I were picked up & dropped off from airports,
hotels, hospitals & Dr Pichet's clinic at no extra charge.
Dr Pichet's clinic is quite impressive, very very nice.
MY SURGERY - I chose to have my implants under
the muscle, which I knew was more painful.
Nothing could have prepared me for the Pain that I felt when I woke.
(although different for everyone)
The pain I felt was quite severe & I had to wear a bandage for
2 days to keep the implants in place. The bandage was very very
tight, & I felt like I could not breathe.
When the bandage came off I felt so much better, although still
All medication had already been organised by the Dr Pichet.
I think Dr Pichet is a very good surgeon, & I would recommend
his services to anyone.
There is a lot of bad press in Australia right now, in regards with
Australians going to Thailand for surgery.
Dr Pichet is an amazing surgeon & I recommend his services to
anyone. Please don't hesitate to travel to see him for your surgery.
Everything he has said to me has been spot on.
Please ask Dr for my email address if you would like to to contact
Michelle & G @ Sydney
Augmentation Surgery from one of Australian patient.
is Rebecca, I am 24 years old living in Australia. I am a mum &
work as a dancer. The aim of the surgery was to improve my small
A cup breasts to a large B or small C cup size......about the same
as I was before having my boys. Not to mention the fact that my
new boobs would help my job prospects.
A year earlier I had looked at having the surgery done in Australia
but the costs had been progressively ballooning and I had seen &
heard some nightmare stories that I put down to a lack of practice
by the surgeons because of our small population. So I went looking
for a surgeon overseas because of the sheer volume associated with
the Plastic Surgery Travel boom.
To be honest, I had seen some of the best looking women in the world
and they had started life as men.......Thailand seemed to be the
centre of this industry.
After 8 months of research, I finally felt confident in selecting
Dr Pichet to do my Breast Augmentation surgery. Many e-mails had
been sent and the answers were always back quickly with any information
requested. The beauty of the Web is that you can get lots of information
on Plastic surgeons, both good & bad. I had read the lot, filtered
the B.S. & believed that my decision was a good one.
I felt I had all the answers but it was not until I got to Bangkok
that the full weight of my decision dawned on me. I was about to
experience a bit of a culture shock.
My partner & I had originally planned to fly in and have the
surgery done straight away. As luck would have it, we got to fly
to Thailand 5 days earlier than planned and decided to spend them
in Pattaya, holidaying. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS. The time
to relax is a bonus, not to mention the additional shopping time....hehe.
You will not feel much like enjoying yourself for a few days after
the surgery. About 6 days after my surgery, we went back to Pattaya
to finish off the trip & I was only just starting to come good.
Take a few days to relax........It definitely made the whole experience
We arrived back in Bangkok on January 4, 2006 to see the doctor
and it was at this point that I had a few doubts. You see, Dr Pichet
had been so professional in all our correspondence that I had assumed
he would have a BIG FLASHY surgery.
When we arrived to do the checkups & documentation I was presented
with a small 2 storey building packed with desks and staff. Don't
get me wrong, it was clean & neat but small. My images evaporated.
I was wondering what I had got myself into. Luckily, talking to
the doctor made me feel a bit better. He is very straight forward
& professional in person. He also mentioned that he was aware
of this Western medical perception & that he was planning a
move to more traditional premises. It shouldn't matter but it did
for a while.
Within the hour, we had completed the documentation, photos &
had checked in to our hotel. Dr Pichet's driver (a great man called
Hai), picked my partner & I up from the hotel to go to the hospital.
It was about 11am & surgery was scheduled for 1pm as I had already
been fasting. On arrival at the grand Private Hospital I was met
by one of Dr Pichet's nurses & fast tracked
through the X-ray process & testing. I DO MEAN FAST TRACKED!
I was in my very comfortable private room by 12. It had cable TV,
private bathroom....all the mod cons. It was better than most hospitals
I have seen in Australia, including the private ones.
All my pain killers, Anti inflammatory & Antibiotic drugs had
been supplied to the hospital by the doctor as part of his service.
The hospital staff were great during my 2 day stay and the meals
were restaurant quality.......even though I did not eat many of
them. I am not a fan of pain & you will experience your fair
share......but again, if the oral pain killers were not doing the
job then the hospital nurses happily administered some additional
help through the IV, plus the odd sleeping tablet to help during
the nights. AGAIN......NO CHARGE.
Surgery went off on time & without a hitch. I was back in my
room about 2.30pm. The nurses did 15 minute blood pressure checks
for 2 hours after surgery. After surgery, you are strapped up with
a VERY TIGHT bandage to keep the implants in place while healing.
I felt like I couldn't breath & wanted it off immediately.
This is evidently quite common & the doctor made it very clear
that the bandage was going to stay on for the next couple of days
or I was to prepare to have the surgery done again. He won that
battle although I did complain regularly to my partner (Who stayed
with me in the hospital room during my 2 days, at no additional
cost). IF YOU CAN, HAVE SOME EMOTIONAL SUPPORT WITH YOU, IT DOES
I had chosen to have my 275cc implants done from under the arm &
under the pectoral muscle. I believe this is a slightly more painful
procedure but I am very glad that I had it done this way. The 50mm
long armpit scars are disappearing nicely and the breast shape is
The new textured silicon gel implants feel very natural & also
have some good properties in the unlikely event that they should
ever be punctured. The procedure makes it hard for you to lift your
arms above your head but 4 weeks down the track I am improving with
a bit of exercise. Another couple of weeks & I will be back
Another bonus in dealing with Dr Pichet is his assistant, Mrs Mao.
She is a lovely lady who only a phone call away. She organised everything
for us, from trips to local shopping centres, to transport to Pattaya
(with Hai because "he is safe") and even talking with
taxi drivers who couldn't find their way back to our hotel. Mrs
Mao was a real bonus to us.
All in all, the whole experience has been a great one. I love my
new boobs ( and play with them daily....hehe). Dr Pichet is a very
good surgeon, the hospital was great and the end results justify
the pain. I couldn't be more happy ( and I am definitely happier
than an acquaintance of mine that had hers done in Sydney a month
earlier at triple the price).
I had a great holiday in lovely Thailand. Had some excellent surgery
done. Shopped like a demon for some great new cloths to suit my
new body shape and met some fine people.........what more could
a girl ask for?
I highly recommend Dr Pichet's service & would happily go back
to him for other services he provides.
I hope this will help any prospective Augmentation patients.
18th of September seen Pat my wife and I in Lincoln Crown Court for
my court case. I had my hand crushed badly 4 and a half years ago
and this was my claim for personal injury. Cutting a long story short,
I won and received a considerable amount in settlement. Enough in
fact to take Pat and I to Thailand for 28 days and for my surgery.
It also left us a little comfort fund in the bank on our return home,
after all a new wardrobe was calling!
After extensive research via
the Internet and other sources of information I selected Dr Pichet
of Bangkok to do my surgery. I had read all the testimonials on
his web site and after contacting him in person he sent photographs
of his work. I was truly taken aback at how convincing the vagina's
looked and was even more excited when finding out that they all
functioned equally as well. I also selected him to do my breast
implants, I'm afraid the ones I had grown on hormones were not suffice.
Dr Pichet recommended a hotel to us (Pat, my wife and I) and also
arranged our transport to and from the airport (all free of charge).
He also booked the hotel and everything was set.
We arrived in Bangkok on 27th
October 2003. We were picked up by Dr Pichet's chauffer and taken
straight to his clinic.Greeted at the door by Mao one of his assistant's
we were led upstairs and sat in a cosy lounge type room and offered
drinks. Several other members of staff were walking about and all
greeted us as if we were long time friends.
The next half hour consisted
of reading and signing declarations and consent forms. Harry Benjamin
is to blame for the 3 rain forests lost in paperwork. I had already
faxed and emailed all of my paperwork so a quick signature was all
that was needed.
Next in walked the man himself casually dressed in jeans and T-shirt.
He said I looked better in person than on my photographs. I had
warmed to this man already.
Before we discussed the final parts of surgery he asked to see what
was already there. I had opted for a colon cut vaginaplasty. He
looked and said he could save me $1000 and get me 5 and a half to
6 inches depth with what I had already, no colon cut necessary.
We both decided this was more than enough.
We then went back into the other
room where Mao had been entertaining Pat. Her English was very good.
The Doctors English was excellent.
We then discussed what size my boobs were going to be. The fixed
price I had paid covered up to 350cc implants. After handling the
350cc size both Pat and I new they were not big enough for my frame.
We eventually decided on 705cc implants. The Doctor had shown us
pictures of 705cc and when I held the implants to my chest they
looked in proportion to my frame so 705cc it was.
He then said we were going to be taken to the hospital and that
Pat would be staying there, not at the Gold Orchid Hotel as originally
planned. We have put a bed alongside yours in the room and it will
save you more money that way. He had cancelled the hotel for the
This worked out very well for us as the $1000 I had saved on the
colon cut had now been spent on the boobs. This meant no bill and
no transport worries for Pat whenever she wanted to visit me in
On arrival at the hospital I was checked for everything. Yes everything.
I didn't realise I was as fit as they said I was. After being taken
to our room I was given 6 litre bottles of water to drink with an
obnoxious liquid. This was to clear me out. Two hours later there
was another 6 litres of water and more of the obnoxious liquid.
Well it certainly cleared me out. I finally had time to sit back
and take stock of the events. The room was fitted out with an en-suite
bathroom, fridge and Sky TV. This would do us perfectly.
Tuesday 28th October at 9.30am
I was wheeled down to the theatre. It seemed like there were 30
people in my entourage Pat included. At the theatre doors they all
waved to me and shouted good luck Jane and Pat sneaked through and
gave me a kiss. That was a lovely kiss to think of while I was going
under the anaesthetic.
6.30pm and I woke in my hospital
room with Pat alongside holding my hand and what seemed like the
same 30 people there all doing there own jobs and checking up on
me. In fact they never left me alone, if it wasn't injections for
pain or antibiotics, it was blood pressure and temperature and if
that didn't wake you up they would come in with trays of food and
clean the room.
Saturday 1st November 5 days after my surgery, the Doctor waltzed
in and said I was going to my hotel, as I was a most excellent patient.
After a shampoo by the hospital hairdresser and a Thai foot massage
by a gorgeous looking young lad (both provided as a present from
the Doctor) we went to the hotel. Again transported by the Doctor's
The Gold Orchid Hotel Bangkok
The hotel was just amazing.
We both rated it as 4star. The cost? ?15 for a double room for the
night and breakfast. The drinks at the bar were also cheap ?1.80
for a two-litre jug of Carlsberg and a second two-litre jug free.
Pampered does not describe it fully. It was marvellous.
Visited twice a day by the Doctor and his clinic staff I had my
packing removed on the Tuesday. On the Friday it was decided I was
fit enough to travel to the Doctors clinic for treatment. Once again
driven by his chauffer, after treatment he would either take you
back to the hotel or shopping in the Plaza.
The Saturday night brought another
present from Dr Pichet. He had hired a bus and all his staff and
patients were first taken to a riverside restaurant for a beautiful
meal and then on to the Grand Temple.
The event being celebrated was
Loy Krathong which translated means launch float. This is the festival
when a small boat type object is made from a base of banana leaves
and adorned with flowers. A candle and also incense sticks are also
added. You then take your Krathong to a body of water (pond, river
or even hotel swimming pool) light the candle and sticks, say a
prayer and then float your Krathong on the surface. The people of
Thailand also wear their national dress as we witnessed at the hotel.
After the temple we were taken to the river and were each handed
a Krathong. We launched them amongst the thousands already there.
The river was lit up as far as the eye could see. A very beautiful
sight to be remembered.
Other excursions included the
Grand Palace, Teakwood Mansion and our favourite Jim Thompson's
House. He was responsible for putting Thai silk on the world market.
His house is kept open to the public and is absolutely stunning.
He made his big brake when the filmmakers of The King and I selected
him to make all of the costumes.
Being treated twice a day at
the clinic continued. Two weeks after surgery it was time to start
dilating. This caused some concern; it was so painful that the Doctor
had me back in hospital. The problem? 25 years of smoking. There
were pieces of dead skin causing the pain. The Doctor could not
remove them in his clinic as it was too painful and he decided it
would be better if I were sedated. After scraping away the dead
skin all is fine. Don't you ever worry about cost Jane, no matter
how many times it takes? I will make you right.
The rest of my treatment went
well and my final result is remarkable, not only does it look good,
it feels good. Yes I do orgasm.
My final day proved very emotional
for all. I had been there for 28 days and all of the clinic staff
new both Pat and I personally by now. I remember crying on the shoulder
of the Doctor's wife when saying goodbye and then having another
go hen giving all the other staff a hug goodbye.
Finally when shaking the Doctors hand he took my hand in both of
his and said that he expects my own GP to be slightly scared of
any treatment as he doesn't deal with SRS on a daily basis. If I
had any future problems whilst it was still healing, just contact
him and make my way there and he would sort out the rest.
When initially speaking to
him via email, he said if I went to him for surgery, he would treat
me as a friend. Well he didn't, he treated us as family and I will
always remember him for that. Truly a great man with a big heart.
My confidence has improved
greatly since my surgery and acceptance by others has also improved.
Pat thinks it may have something to do with my features getting
softer. I partly agree with her. Personally I think it's because
of the successful surgery that gives me that extra little spring
in my step and I can only thank Dr Pichet for that and of course
Pat for making it all possible in the first place.
Thailand, a beautiful place, full of beautiful people.
There will always be a part of me there.
