Experience Surgery with Dr.Pichet
Hi, 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 5th 2003.

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 you’re 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. I’ve since experienced vaginal sex with a man and enjoyed it immensely! Dr. Pichet’s skill and the clinic’s 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. You’re contacting him for the price savings and because of recommendations such as this one, accept the challenges that go with your decision.

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 the risks.

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 doctor’s 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.

Conclusions

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 rtuttle@speakeasy.org.

Experience Surgery with Dr.Pichet
About 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,
Kristy


Experience 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.


Sincerely,
