I'm beyond amazed with this magical place called Kamol Cosmetic Hospital. I'm not even sure where to begin, but lets start with the man himself Dr. Kamol. I know that ever girl loves her surgeon, but do they love him and everything that he has to offer??? I often joked with the staff at Kamol Cosmetic Hospital by stating that "Dr. Kamol was my new father," but let me just say this, Dr. Kamol may not be my biological father, but her is the father of vaginas, and he and his staff are the future in transsexual care!
The facility runs with competency of a well oiled machine! There are various departments of people whom are polite, attentive, and eager to help you. I arrived in Bangkok on August 3rd 2015. I met the hospital's driver at the Starbucks on the third level on the airport BBK. He was very polite. He took my luggage and escorted me to his car. We talked about various topics from Thai culture to American culture. When I arrived at the hospital I was greeted by my agent Pichet. Pichet has been my contact person since my first email. I was happy to find him as pleasant in person as I did threw email. I was shown to my apartment and given time to freshen up before touring the facility.
My surgery was scheduled for August 5th, so I arrived on the 3rd for some preliminary blood work, x-ray, and a examination from Dr. Kamol. Each and every person that I encountered during the various tests that I went through were pleasant and positive. After going through the registration process and tests I was introduced to the man himself Dr. Kamol. He was pleasant and full of smiles. In my opinion Dr. Kamol is a man of few words, but when he spoke I felt the honesty in his words. He spoke with certainty and the confidence of a man that is a leader in his field. There was no pomp and circumstance, or in other words there were no false promises or vague phrasing when he spoke. He was honest and blunt about what I could expect from one of the various penile techniques with what little skin I had to offer. I informed him that I was interested in the Sigmoid Colon graft, and he agreed that in my case, that this technique would be a better fit for me, and my expectations from SRS. He answered my 101 questions about the surgery and any future side effects. He explained the restricted meal plan that I would be on for the next few weeks. He also detailed my recovery and after care for the next few weeks. Overall, Dr. Kamol was honest, he informative, but most importantly he was clear with the details.
Now lets talk about a few other things:
The facility is just as advertised. This is a multi-level modern building that is well manicured and secured. The staff are extremely friendly, and when I say the staff I'm including each person I met from housekeeping, to the nurses, to the doctors. This place is solely a cosmetic hospital. Therefore, there will be no babies being born, nor will there be any brain or heart surgeries happing in the facility. You will be surrounded by people who have come from various parts of the world to add a touch of beauty and other enhancement into their lives.
However, before I go I would like to send a special thank you out to the following: Pichet, for always having a answer to my 1001 questions and friendly conversation, Kashif, for his many answers as well and for the jokes and entertainment, Ms. Eileen for every hug and all the compassion offered (she held my hand while I was in a bit of pain when I was in the hospital ward, I will never forget that,) Ms. Janice and Ms Oii are the nurses that cared for me in the after care facility. Those two ladies are friendly, informative, and they did not mind any of strange vaginal hygiene questions.
Ultimately choosing a surgeon for SRS or plastic surgery in general is a really difficult decision. However, I hope that you take a moment to factor Dr. Kamol into the equation. From my lips to your ears, Dr. Kamol is in a class of his own, and with a facility filled with a caring staff that just puts double icing on the cake.
P.s I will be posting later in more detail about my healing and my experience with SRS 3 Sigmoid Colon Graft as I get some time under my belt. However, so far so good I feel amazing. I'm currently vacationing throughout Asia with my bestie.
