Overview:

  In 1992 Doctor Sanguan Kunaporn M.D. opened the Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic at the Phuket International Hospital in Phuket, Thailand. He is a founding member of the Phuket International Aesthetic Center (PIAC) in Phuket International Hospital. He is also currently the Thailand National Secretary for the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

 In just the past decade the Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic has performed over 2,000 surgical procedures for patients from all around the world. Dr. Sanguan is an expert at all areas of plastic surgery, but he specializes in MTF gender reassignment surgery and breast implants. He was trained by Dr. Preecha in Thailand. In 1991 he also studied and trained in the United States at the Tampa Craniofacial Center in Tampa, Florida.
 
 Dr. Sanguan volunteers in his community by treating poor people who are burn victims, have been in an accident and also children with cleft pallets. They wouldn't have been able to afford surgery without his charity.

 Dr. Sanguan is bilingual, he speaks both English and Thai. If you watch the video above you can hear him speak.


SRS Requirements:

 Dr. Sanguan follows the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines.

These Requirements Must Always Be Met:

  1. 6 month period on hormones
  2. You must pass an evaluation recommending surgery
  3. You must have 6 months psychological care or therapy
  4. You must have lived in the gender role for at least a year
  5. Have at least 2 years history of wanting sex reassignment
  6. Have an experienced therapist or psychiatrist diagonse you with gender identity disorder

Electrolysis:

 Dr. Sanguan doesn't require electrolysis because he removes the hairs during surgery. Removing hair before SRS ensures the best results and a faster surgery though. Many transsexuals that don't want to go through the embarrassment of getting electrolysis use the Tria Laser hair removal system for home use. If you try this, make sure to buy it from their website (www.triabeauty.com) so that you get the warranty and the battery lasts. Silk'n (www.silkn.com) is also another option for hair reduction.

 You also may be able to do some of your own electrolysis at home with the One Touch system. The cheapest place to buy it is on Ebay, it usually costs about $10 USD. Make sure to also get replacement tips though, they bend easily.

 I have found Tend Skin to work very well to reduce redness and bumps after electrolysis. 

Technique:

     
 Dr. Sanguan performs surgery in two stages, seven days apart. It is because of this, that you can expect to stay in Thailand for three to four weeks.

Payment:

 You must pay in Thai Baht. Many of Dr. Sanguan's patients convert their money once they get to Thailand.


Aftercare:

 After MTF SRS, you will need to use a vaginal dilator for the rest of your life. This is to retain the depth. Each surgeon has slightly different methods of dilation, you will need to follow your surgeon's instructions.

Travel:

 If you live far away from Thailand, the cheapest flight might add another several thousand dollars. Make sure to factor in the current cost to travel into your savings goals. www.priceline.com and www.skyscanner.net are good places to compare and find the most affordable flights.

 The Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic will provide transportation to and from the airport and hotels as long as your surgery costs more than 100,000 Thai Baht (about $3,200 USD). If it is less than that you can pay a fee for service.
