FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How old do I have to be to have this surgery?
You must be at least 20 years of age to have elective surgery in Thailand. Patients under the age of 20 years need to provide a signed Consent Form from their parent/guardian if the surgeon accepts the case.
How soon can I have this surgery?
We can secure priority appointments for our clients subject to the surgeon’s availability. However it is best to request an appointment well in advance so that the surgeon can advise you about the steps to take before coming for surgery.
What documentation is needed to be considered for this surgery?
The surgeon overseas will provide a full list of documentation required which will include a psychiatric assessment and case history from your endocrinologist on hormone therapy.
How long do I have to stay in Thailand?
The surgeon usually recommends a stay of at least 21 nights after surgery. This is to allow you time to recover and to have a follow up consultation with the surgeon and removal of sutures. The surgeon may change the recommended time overseas based on age, medical conditions or where more than one surgery is being performed.
Why can’t I leave sooner?
For your own safety you should observe the recommendation. Air travel presents risks such as deep vein thrombosis. To leave sooner would present an unnecessary risk. If you cannot stay the recommended time it is best not to have surgery overseas.
