Dr Sanguan Kunaporn PIAC
Thailand Plastic Surgeon
Dr Sanguan Kunaporn, has a well-known and well-deserved reputation in plastic surgery, and particularly in the field of Male-to-Female Gender Reassignment surgery. In Thailand Doctor Sanguan trained under the guidance of Doctor Preecha Tiewtranon, regarded by the Transgender community as the pioneer of Gender Reassignment surgery. He studied and trained in America before opening the PPS clinic in Phuket.
Dr Sanguan expertise has been heavily documented over the past decade with extensive media coverage, including documentaries on the National Geographic Channel (internationally), MDR (Germany), ABC (Australia), Star TV (Hong Kong) and 20/20 (New Zealand). These programs have given transgendered clients the opportunity to pass on their personal experiences and their decision making process in undertaking Gender Reassignment Surgery.
“I guess just about everyone thinks that their surgeon is the best. All I can say is that it’s difficult to imagine anyone better than Dr. Sanguan and his staff at Phuket International Hospital. Everyone was so kind, considerate, gentle, and good humored. And the standard of care was second to none.”
