Thailand’s Leading Plastic Surgeons

As Australasia’s most trusted plastic surgery group, we could ask you to just take us at our word when we say that we work with the best Plastic Surgeons in Thailand, but we know that facts are much more important when choosing a Surgeon for your procedure. Below, we’ve listed our 10 best Thailand Plastic Surgeons, along with their specialties, client reviews, and more. Once you’ve read the list, contact us to find out how to lock in with a true industry leader.  

Dr Pornthep Pungrasmi

DR Pornthep
  • Thailand’s most in-demand Plastic Surgeon
  • Specialises in Breast & Body Surgery
  • Over 1,000 CosMediTour procedures

There’s no surprise that Dr Pornthep made our 10 Best Thailand Plastic Surgeons list—he is one of the country’s most in-demand and well-known Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and one of the world’s top Plastic Surgeons for Breast Augmentation, Breast Revision, Breast Lift, and Breast Reduction. Dr Pornthep has meticulous skills and is highly knowledgeable when it comes to the most complex plastic surgery techniques and approaches. He’s renowned for minimal scarring after Tummy Tuck procedures and is highly sought after for Mummy Makeovers

Dr Pornthep has operated on over 1,000 CosMediTour clients and, for more than 12 years, the positive reviews have continued to roll in. From those who ‘highly recommend him’, to those who say he’s changed their life, it doesn’t get much better than that! Dr Pornthep has a kind bedside manner and, as our clients say, ‘impeccable stitch work’. If you can’t find him exclusively performing CosMediTour procedures at Samitivej Chinatown Hospital, he’ll be at Thailand’s premier university training hospital, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, where he works as a Professor in the Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. 

Dr Veerawat Tirananmongkol

DR Veerawat
  • Breast Augmentation & Breast Lift Specialist
  • Majority of clients through referral
  • Quality over quantity approach

Searching for a Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift expert? Dr Veerawat could be your guy! Known by our clients as ‘Dr V’, this expert Thailand Plastic Surgeon is highly requested. In fact, he gains most of his clients through referrals—word-of-mouth recommendations from clients who can’t speak more highly of his attentive and honest attitude. 

Dr V favours natural looking results. His specialties include using teardrop implants and the dual plane placement approach (both renowned for producing the most natural Breast Augmentation results). He prefers to only take on a handful of clients, favouring quality results over quantity. Despite his personal aesthetic preferences, Dr V is always willing to explain all the options to his clients. He was one of the founding members of Phuket International Aesthetic Centre (now the Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute) and that’s exactly where you can find him performing CosMediTour procedures.

Dr Supasid Jirawatnotai

DR Supasid
  • Facelift, Neck Lift, Blepharoplasty & Open Rhinoplasty Specialist
  • Advanced surgical techniques
  • Helped set up Thailand’s first dedicated facial paralysis clinic

Safety is important for all plastic surgery procedures, but when you’re considering face surgery, there’s a little extra incentive to ensure you’re in expert hands. Dr Supasid is a Plastic, Reconstructive, and Cosmetic Surgery specialist based at Samitivej Chinatown Hospital. He is highly sought for Open Rhinoplasty, Revision Rhinoplasty with Autologous Cartilage Grafting, Face Lifts, and Neck Lifts. 

Dr Supasid began practicing in 2012. His use of advanced surgical techniques is second to none, as is his knowledge of how to reconstruct a damaged facial nerve and muscle. Because his passion is the treatment of facial paralysis, he is an ideal Plastic, or Cosmetic Facial Surgeon—in the extremely rare chance of an issue arising during face surgery, Dr Supasid can draw on his unique expertise and know exactly what to do.

Dr Kamolwan Panichapong

DR Kamolwan
  • Female Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Dr Kamolwan has performed hundreds of CosMediTour procedures. She has experience with both simple and complex cases and her warm and caring manner make her a clear client favourite. When she’s not performing exclusive CosMediTour procedures at Samitivej Chinatown Hospital, Dr Kamolwan volunteers her time.

Dr Atikom learnt much from his mentorship and, today, uses refined surgical techniques to produce exquisite Breast Surgery, Tummy Tuck, and Mummy Makeover results

Dr Atikom is committed to extending himself for the benefit of his clients.

He comes from a family of surgeons and specialist doctors, so has had his eyes on the medical industry from a young age. What many don’t know is that Dr Jib also has a passion for art and design. In fact, he almost followed his architectural dreams, rather than choosing to go to medical school!

Plastic Surgery allows Dr Jib to utilise his passion for artistry, while also drawing on his medical strengths. He has perfected his skills with years of study, mentorships, and experiences in the operating room. Dr Jib expertly performs the full suite of Breast Surgery, Facial Surgery, and advanced body contouring procedures, including Liposuction.

Most Common Thailand Plastic Surgery FAQs

What qualifications will my Thailand Plastic Surgeon have?

CosMediTour Surgeons are highly experienced and Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons. This means that, on top of the years they spend in medical school training to be doctors, they must also complete an additional 6 years of highly regulated and specialised Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery training.

Will there be a language barrier?

No. Our Thai Plastic Surgeons are world-renowned and highly educated. They speak multiple languages and many of them, when not performing surgery, travel across the globe to present lectures about Plastic Surgery in English. Once you book your procedure with us, your personal Client Manager will be able to set your mind at ease about any possible language barriers—they know each of our Surgeons and can answer any questions you might have. Equally, CosMediTour clients enjoy the services of our in-destination client support team in Thailand. Friendly and knowledgeable, your Client Liaison is there to assist you on-the-ground, and even attends your consultation with you!

When will my consultation with my Surgeon be?

Your face-to-face consultation with your Plastic Surgeon will usually take place 1 to 3 days prior to your surgery. This is because you will not physically be in the country much before then. While in Australia, your Client Manager will act as the liaison between you and your Surgeon—if you have any questions for them before you travel, get in touch with your Client Manager so that your Surgeon can be informed and respond in a timely manner. 

Can I have a consultation with the Surgeon before I complete my assessment?

Our assessment process must be completed first to ensure that you’re eligible for surgery. For an obligation-free Surgical Recommendation and quote, get started by completing our online Assessment Form.

Where are your Thailand hospitals located?

Our state-of-the-art partner hospitals are located in Bangkok and Phuket. More than just your standard ward-style hospital, these advanced facilities feature rooms that look more like luxurious hotel rooms and are renowned for their exceptional standards of care. More information about our Thailand hospitals can be found here. For help with choosing where to have your procedure completed, take a look at our Guide to Choosing a Thailand Surgery Location

Where will my recovery take place?

Your initial recovery will take place under the attentive care of our Thai hospital nursing staff. Once discharged, however, you will be transferred to your Thailand hotel, where you can recuperate in luxury. To find out just how long your stay in Thailand will be, look through the details of our Thailand Plastic Surgery packages here, or contact us on 1300 000 633.

Can I see my Surgeon while I’m recovering?

Yes—upon discharge from hospital, your post-surgery consultation visit will be booked. This will take place before you depart Thailand so that your Surgeon can monitor your healing and remove any stitches if required.

When will I return home?

Before you depart Thailand, you will need to be declared ‘fit to fly’. Your Surgeon will make this assessment during your post-surgery consultation when they assess how your recovery is progressing.
