This is the interview documentary in “AT TEN” or ” Tee – Sip” talk show televised thru television Channel 3 about the young girl who has gone thru sex reassignemnt process. It took her two years to become full MAN. This is one of many success cases from Yan Hee hospital in Bangkok. Enjoy the three parts show.

Many Japanese Girls and Korean Girls come to Thailand for F to M operation at Yanhee Hospital.One of the success cases tell her/his story on television interview for the first time in Thailand. Mr. F to M, dressed to protect his identity and Doctor who operated on her with the interviewer.

Interview people how they are thinking of this sex reassignment .Doctor explain how the new male sexsual organ is being constructed with the silicone stick and the patient tissues. After that the new organ is attached to the girl sexual organ.

The opinion from the patient and doctor after operation.

PATIENT Opinion:
1) She/he decided to take this operation because she want to fullfill her dream to become a man. Not because of sexual satisfaction. After operation for one year he never have any sex with any girl or boy and he does not have any girl friend.
2) During this one year, he never has any single moment of regret in this transgender operation.

DOCTOR Opinion:
1) The reason that she went to have this full operation because she had a Gender Identity Disorder (GID) sickness. It is not because she is a “TOM BOY”.

The difference between GID and Tom Boy is:

GID is a person who has a confusion of Gender Identity, while Tom Boy is a behavior of copying other personality. This behavior is very dangerous and not advice to have the transgender operation. Because once the patient change their mind or give up this behavior, they can not go back to the original gender. It is a no return operation.
2) This interview intention to educate people not motivate them to have the sexual transgender operation. It is for the GID patients only. It is a painful and expensive operation and can not be reverse.

How to Get a Sex Change Operation

ds_rogerje8949 Contributor

By Roger Jewell, eHow Contributing Writer

(5 Ratings)

Deciding to undertake a sex change operation, whether from male-to-female or female-to-male, is a very emotional one. Many prospective gender changers have serious issues concerning their gender orientation and have had such issues since they were very young. Thus, the decision to have a gender change is a serious matter that must not be taken lightly.


Difficulty: Moderately Challenging

Things You’ll Need:

  • Strong gender identity
  • Medical insurance coverage (if possible) or ability to pay
  • Pre-operative counseling
  • Post-operative counseling
  • Hormonal therapy

    Get a Sex Change Operation

  1. Step 2

    Paying for your operation can be completed in several ways. Three choices are paying by cash, financing or medical insurance coverage. Often, new gender transition operations are available in other countries for less cost than in the United States. However, there may be additional risks by going abroad for the operation. Surgical and physician standards in other countries may be less stringent than in the United States.The cost of a sex change operation in the U.S. ranges from male to female costs of $37,000 while operations changing from female to male are much more often exceeding $77,000. Unfortunately, only a few health insurance plans cover sex change operations. (more…)

What is Medical Tourism ?

Medical Tourism is the practice of travelling across the borders to obtain healthcare services in another country where medical expenses are relatively lower and the services sought are equivalent to or better than those available in one’s own country.

The Thai government began strategic plans since 2004 to promote Thailand as a prime medical tourism destination. Since then, the country has enjoyed a large number of visitors in this category. The Department of Export Promotion and the Department of Health Service Support reported a rapid growth of 16.48% during 2001-2009 for health services delivery to foreigners: 

Year No. of Foreign Patients Estimate Income (mil Bth.)
2003 973,532 110,058
2004 1,103,095 198,054
2005 1,249,984 309,318
2006 1,330,000 12,939
2007 1,373,807 106,640
2008 1,380,000 107,419
2009 1,390,000 108,197


Thailand is now widely acclaimed among the international community as the medical hub in Asia, with significant advantages including the availability of modern equipment and specialties, easy entrance, competitive prices, and great hospitality from service operators and personnel. These, when coupled with the well-established fact that Thailand is a superb tourist destination with serene beaches and mountains, intriguing arts and culture, food, entertainment, and shopping, make Thailand a great medical tourism destination.

State backs medical tourism promotion

Low prices keeps demand stable

  • Published By Bangkok Post : 24/11/2009 at 12:00 AM
  • Newspaper section: Business

The government is working with hospitals and tourism operators to introduce medical tourism packages aimed at boosting the sector’s earnings to at least 24 billion baht.

The public-private collaboration, led by the Institute for Small and Medium Enterprises Development, the Thai Hotels Association, the Association of Thai Travel Agents and the Private Hospitals Association, plans to introduce the packages next May.

Medical tourism is a fast-growing industry and Thailand is recognised for the quality and value of its treatments, said Sumatarat Sitabut, a senior consultant at Institute for Small and Medium Enterprises Development.

Some 1.2 million foreign patients visited Thailand last year, spending an average of 200,000 baht per person on all expenses, he said. This year, the number of visitors will decrease slightly due to the global downturn, but the institute predicts the figure will rise to 1.5 million in 2010.

“Thailand has very high potential because [the prices of ] medical services here are 10% to 25% lower than rivals such as Singapore. Besides, there are many facilities and tourist destinations to help patients recover,” he said.

A foreign patient is typically accompanied by at least three people. Some patients have as many as six to 10 caregivers. The convalescence period ranges from 10 to 60 days and the patients and caregivers want to travel to relax, he said.

The participating bodies are aiming to introduce medical tourism packages next May, Mr Sumatarat said.

The campaign will be divided into two phases and target customers will be approached directly to buy the packages.

In the first phase, Thailand will promote medical tourism packages among foreigners whose medical treatments will cost at least US$6,000 in their home countries.

The second phase will target retirees who want to recover or relax in Thailand.

“Medical tourism in Thailand has been popular for five years. The customers who came here for treatments and check-ups were mostly from the Middle East,” he said. “At present, the country has patients from many countries and the main markets are North America, Japan and the Middle East.”

Heart surgery and knee and prostate operations are the most common treatments for patients from North America. Japanese come for the local dentists, who can be as much as five times cheaper than in Japan, said Mr Sumatarat.

Thailand is also well-known for plastic surgery and sex change operations, he said.

Samitivej Hospital recently approached ATTA and asked the association to jointly develop tour packages. This shows that there is strong demand, said ATTA president Surapol Sritrakul. If the new packages are launched next year, the collaboration will lead to better cooperation and productivity.
