Transgender and Breast Procedures in Phuket

 
Victoria Pakohomova is a Beauty Vacation Adviser at Taqtik in Phuket, Thailand. Plastic surgeons in Phuket are increasingly in demand, so Victoria is sharing her knowledge of the surgeons at Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) beginning with the director of Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) Dr. Sanguan.
 
Gender reassignment surgery

Thailand is well known in the world for its transgender tolerance. Gender reassignment surgeries (GRA) are accepted in Buddhism as a normal human right. GRA surgeries have a long and successful history in Thailand, and transgender patients from all over the world travel here for this life-changing procedure. One of the most respected and world-recognized surgeons that specialize in this area is Dr. Sanguan Kunaporn- the Director of PPSI.

Dr Sanguan graduated from Bangkok Medical University in 1984 with a Surgeons Diploma, then worked and studied in plastic surgery from 1988 to 1991. His practical experience in Aesthetic surgery has continued for over 28 years and Dr Sanguan is renowned as an innovative specialist in GRA and mammoplasty procedures.

Breast procedures

Thousands of women have enjoyed amazing results after their breast reconstruction, revision, reduction, lift and augmentation surgeries. Dr. Sanguan regularly takes on challenging and complex cases previously rejected by other clinics or surgeons. He also ensures that scars are thin and small, becoming almost invisible with time.

I especially love working with Dr. Sanguan because of his thoughtful and warm approach with clients and his attention to detail. His main motivation is to meet his client’s expectations and will always discuss his surgical methods and possible outcomes in detail.

Dr Sanguan believes that the beauty in breasts is not in their size, but in their harmonious shape. The curves of the breast should be relevant to a woman’s height, weight and body shape. During the consultation, he uses computer simulation programs for visualization of the surgery results, giving the patient various options. Dr Sanguan’s patients are consistently happy with their results and and recommend him as the best surgeon for mammoplasties. I would highly recommend booking a surgery vacation with Dr. Sanguan at least six months in advance due to his busy schedule.

Because Dr. Sanguan is such an easy-going person, and always eager to help, you’ll feel comfortable asking him as many questions as you need. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to write down and I can refer them to Dr Sanguan, one of the world’s best breast surgeons.

5 Reasons to Book your Phuket Healthcare Vacation in the Low Season

Hi, this is Victoria Pakohomova from Taqtik and I have has been working and living in Phuket Thailand for the last seven years. Living in Phuket all year round, gives me the opportunity to work with great healthcare partners like Phuket Plastic Surgery and many others. Phuket, in both low and high seasons, has given me a unique insight into when to travel there and why. Medical travelers often opt to visit during the high season to avoid rains and typhoons, but here’s a better option…

The calendar year in Phuket is divided into high and low seasons.  Normally, the high season lasts from October to March and low from May to September. The question is What about April? It is a separate story, come back to it in the end. Seasonality is determined by weather conditions and wind direction. In high season, the wind blows from the east, and the west coast sea (where are all bathing beaches are located) is calm, smooth and safe. 

victoria phuket beach

Sunny weather is more or less guaranteed, and if suddenly rain starts, it doesn’t last long and the hot sun is back again. In the beginning – in the middle of May, the direction of wind changes, wavy weather starts, rib currents happen often, the probability of rains and typhoons increases significantly. That said, there are advantages in traveling to Phuket for healthcare in low season (based on the experience of seven years of living in Phuket)

  1. Significantly less quantity of tourists– even ex-pats and those who come to stay to Phuket during winter in their country of residence leave the island during low season. You will enjoy deserted beaches, romantic sunsets, places of interest and breath-taking viewpoints without crowds of people.
  2. Temperature– In low season sweat won’t pour from your face and body, because the air temperature is not 32-35, but 25-30. And during the recovery process, you are breathing in fresh sea air rather than chilling in the room with aircon. Of course, there is a risk of rain, but it normally rains lasts from 1- to 2 hours, refreshes the air and again and is replaced by the sun.
  3. Price- You will be amazed by prices for accommodation, car rental and hotels during low season. For example: a room in a luxury hotel cost THB 1500 -2000 per night in low season, while the regular price for the same room in the high season could be just TBH 8,000 – 12,000. The service will be the same, the hotel half empty and you save a huge sum. Even restaurants have more discounts, promotions and interesting offers.
  4. Fruit- the low season is the season of many exotic fruits like mango, mangosteen, lychee, rambutan, sugar apple, longan, santol and, of course, the Thai king of fruits – nasty smelling Durian fruit. About 5-7 sorts of juicy mango and durian at dirt cheap prices and a maximum level of vitamins! Great support in the healing process after surgery.
  5. Exercise- If the partner, traveling with you is an active person – it is a great time to try surfing or kiting, waves and wind are perfect at that time of the year. It is also a perfect time to travel with kids too because of different summer camps in international schools, wake parks, surf schools. Children will find themselves in a multinational environment, find new friends, improve physical shape due to various sports activities and English or French language skills. It is impossible during the high season during the educational process at schools.

So welcome to Phuket! The paradise island for beauty vacations with highly professional and experienced surgeons.

And coming back to April…it is in between high and low seasons: still no waves, rip currents and rains, but it is very hot. Extremely hot and humid. Not recommended. Just believe a person with 7 years of living experience at Phuket

Personalized 3G Nose Design at VG Plastic Surgery

A common concern about rhinoplasty is that the results will look unnatural. That after surgery you won’t look like yourself anymore, and it will be brazenly obvious that you have had work done. At VG Plastic surgery in South Korea, they use state of the art 3D diagnostic equipment to ensure you end up with the ideal nose for the shape of your face.
Personalized nose design

At VG Plastic Surgery precise analysis are carried out along with diagnosis procedures, using 3D CT Scans prior to surgery.  The 3D CT equipment presents 3D images of the patient based on risks can be minimized, and accuracy enhanced during surgery. 3D imaging can identify problems that can’t be detected through a regular consultation.

Instead of creating the same nose design for every patient, VG Plastic Surgery performs an accurate analysis of each patient’s face shape to create the ideal nose.  Stylish nose shape accentuates attractive features and minimizes aesthetic flaws.

Overview of procedure

A 3D CT scan provides a detailed analysis of the size and shape of the nasal bone, the septal naval cartilage and the degree of curvature of the bone and/or cartilage. The surgeon then checks for enlargement of the inferior nasal concha, presence of implants and determine the implant type and any problems including:

  • Shape and size of septal nasal cartilage- the scan will determine if the patient is a good candidate for a rhinoplasty using the septal nasal cartilage.
  • Septal deviation- if the patient has septal deviation a resection can be performed at the same time as the procedure.
  • Width of the nasal bone- if deemed necessary a nasal bone width revision (nasal bone osteotomy) can be performed at the same time as the procedure.
  • Enlarged interior nasal concha- an enlarged interior nasal concha that causes nasal congestion can be remedied during the procedure.
Why choose a 3D rhinoplasty over regular a rhinoplasty?

More and more plastic surgeons are choosing to use 3D technology because it allows them to more accurately plan for a safer surgery. Patients of 3D technology are seeing better and more natural looking results.

Hip Joint Replacement Surgery in Cancun, Mexico

One of the most common problems faced by the world’s aging population, is the deterioration of joints. One of the most vulnerable joints in our body is the hip joint, and will often need surgical interventions like A total hip joint replacement that removes the impaired hip joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. My Orthopedic Vacations offers a full concierge service to patients wanting to travel to Cancun, Mexico for ORTHOPEDIC surgery. A holiday where you will return home rested, REVITALIZED and feeling truly brand new with your brand-new hip!
Why do hip joints need replacing?

In a healthy hip joint, smooth cartilage will cover and protect the end of the thigh bone and the socket in which the ball of the thigh bone sits. Healthy cartilage will cushion the ball and allow it to glide easily into it’s socket and move freely. One of the most common causes of hip joint deterioration is osteoarthritis. Cartilage becomes damaged and worn, and eventually the bones within the joint rub together becoming roughened, and sometimes even broken. Damaged hip joints can cause sever hip pain and stiffness, and everyday movements like walking, climbing stairs or getting out of a chair become almost increasingly difficult.

What’s involved in hip joint replacement surgery?

During the hip joint replacement surgery, your orthopedic surgeon will make a cut over the side of your hip and remove the affected bone. The bone is then replaced with an artificial joint (taking approximately two hours). Minimally invasive techniques can be applied by making several very small cuts instead of one long one and using specialized surgical instruments. These techniques will result in less blood loss, reduced pain and faster healing. During the surgery patients are given general anesthetic, or a local epidural pain killer which allows the patient to remain conscious and experience a faster recovery.

Recovering from hip replacement surgery

Recovering from a hip replacement generally takes about four to six months. It’s recommended that patients undergo physical therapy and strengthening exercises for the time it takes for their bodies to get used the new joint. Adjusting and restricting movements may be necessary like:

  • Avoid crossing legs and ankles
  • Avoid bending down low
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects
  • Avoid twisting hip movements
  • Avoid lying on side of hip replacement
  • Lie with a pillow between legs
  • Avoid standing for long periods of time
  • Sit in a firm chair that has arm rests
  • Be mindful of abrasions on the hip to avoid infection
Why travel with My Orthopedic Vacations?

A medical tourism facilitator like My Orthopedic Vacations provides a bridge between orthopedic patients in their home country, to orthopedic surgeons in Cancun, Mexico. The logistics are taken care of, so you can concentrate on your procedure and your recovery. Private airport, hotel and hospital transfers are included in every package as well as follow up care when you arrive home. My Orthopedic Vacations assists you through every step of your surgical journey.

Top Ten Tips for your Cosmetic Surgery Holiday

Based on past client feedback and interviewing the surgeons, we detail 10 essential points to keep in mind before you travel on a surgery holiday!

DO have realistic expectations

The biggest factor that determines what you will look like after surgery is what you look like before!
We are all different, so the same surgery will look different for two different people, even if you are the same age, shape and size.
After a breast augmentation, the same size implant will look completely different in two different patients, as all nipples and chest shape and sizes are unique.
You cannot hope that your breasts will look like Scarlett Johansson and your butt will not look like Beyoncé’s! Judging yourself on others is just a recipe for disappointment and regret.
Do your homework, but be prepared for improvement, not perfection. Also remember that surgery will not change your life, that is up to you.

DON’T smoke!

Smoking promotes poor healing and bad scarring, so our surgeons recommend that you give up smoking completely for at least 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery. You should not take Nicorette gum or nicotine patches either. The chance of developing keloid scars are greatly increased if you do smoke.

DON’T fall prey to the trends of new surgery methods

Plastic surgery methods are sophisticated now, and available the world over. Occasionally new names crop up for old methods, which are particularly favored by the more expensive surgeons at home to portray that they are inventors of new methods! More often than not, these ‘new’ methods are dressed up from traditional procedures, and all that has changed is the name! Beware of surgeons and websites that throw fancy words at you and then charge double!

DON’T feel pressured by the opinions of others

There should be only one reason that you are getting the surgery done – because YOU want to! Well-meaning friends and family will have their own comments, but don’t be swayed into or out of making a decision based on the opinions of others. People have surgery for a million reasons, but make sure that this is YOUR reason!

DO get your body into tip top condition before your holiday

A good diet and regular exercise in the weeks leading up to surgery can benefit healing and recovery. The goal is to get your body in optimal health, the blood and oxygen circulating. We have consistently found that the clients who are in good health and condition prior to surgery have the best healing and less obvious scarring in the months after surgery.
The measure of ideal body weight is BMI or Body Mass Index, which is a ratio of body weight in Kg to height in metres squared. Normal BMI is between 18 to 25. Candidates who are more than 15kg over the ideal body weight are not good candidates for cosmetic surgery such as liposuction or abdominoplasty, because these procedures are designed only for body sculpting and are not for weight reduction.
Surgery on overweight or obese patients will not achieve the goals and only result in patient dissatisfaction and higher chance of complications. Overweight patients should enter an exercise and diet regime to lose weight to near normal level and become suitable candidates.

DO get yourself some advice before you leave on wound/scar healing

Some scars can be treated with compression therapy, and some with topical creams. The creams are applied to reduce scarring and to speed up the healing process. Rose hip, aloe vera and some Vitamin E lotions have been found to help speed recovery. Massaging these creams helps soothe and soften the scars. The surgeon can also prescribe a specialized crème for reducing the appearance of scars. This must be applied morning and evening.

DO ensure you have a thorough consultation

The consultation is the most important part of the surgery, it is when you can ask all the questions that you have before the surgery. The surgeon will have as much time for you as you need, so use this time and don’t be shy to ask all the questions that you need.

DO cover up from the sun

Whatever treatment that you have, one thing is essential – keep all scars out of the sun! All good surgeons will advise you to do this – it is necessary for proper scar healing. Exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun may damage the skin and lead to bad healing. So, bring your sunscreen and a good hat.

DON’T be afraid to ask questions!

Before you go, when you get to your destination, and after surgery, never hesitate to contact one of your team at TAQTIK to ask any questions. We will pass all medical questions to the surgeon and get back to you as soon as possible. We will be in touch with you after your holiday, we also like to ask if you can send across photos regularly so the surgeon can see wound healing and how the results are forming.

DO have fun!

Don’t forget to have a great holiday while you are recovering! There is plenty to do, as our team will show you, so take a bit of spare cash to make sure that you have a great holiday.
Pampering treatments, shopping trips, day trips, dinners and nights out are all possible, and can all be booked after your surgery, when you are feeling well. So make the most of your holiday – get some rest, get some fun nights in and out, and you will be feeling on top of the world when you arrive home!
