Dr Suporn Watanyusakul MD Chonburi Thailand

 

Welcome to the official Suporn Clinic web site.

In here you will find descriptive information about the techniques I use for male-to-female Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS), Feminizing Facial Surgery (FFS) and Augmentation Mammaplasty (AM). I hope that you will find it to be both informative and useful.

I have been practicing craniofacial, aesthetic plastic and reconstructive surgery since December 1991, and my Clinic practice is presently in Chonburi, Thailand

In 2000 I developed and introduced a proprietary technique for SRS which does not use the more traditional penile inversion method. It is a one-stage technique which I have constantly developed and improved upon, and which - in my experience - gives consistently superior overall results to the more traditional methods. I have published a number of medical papers outlining my technique in learned medical journals, and which have been presented to the Royal College of Surgeons in Thailand. A summary of these presentations is available within these pages.

The FFS techniques I use are generally well established craniofacial methods, but in 2003 I started using an innovative and proprietary method for effectively reducing forehead brow bossing in medium severity cases.

While my clientele is primarily male to female transgender women seeking total transitional surgery, I also regularly perform aesthetic facial, mammaplastic and vaginoplastic surgeries for natal women.

I am certified by the Medical Council of Thailand, and now, by 2017 I have performed over 2500 primary cases of SRS in patients of about 40 nationalities, the majority of whom originate from the United States of America and Europe.

It has always been my aim - along with that of my wonderful staff who are devoted totally to ensuring our patients' utmost satisfaction and care - to be able to offer the very best surgical practices, with pre-operative and post-operative support of an order which is second-to-none.

Introducing "The Suporn Team"

I announced in May 2017 that it was my intention is to withdraw from full-time surgery at the end of 2018 and to only undertake primary SRS and FFS on a reducing basis during 2019 only. I have now decided to extend that period to include 2020, and possibly longer.  I have already reduced my own commitment to doing operations on a full-time basis myself, with the balance of the demand now being undertaken by fellow Suporn Team surgeons. Nevertheless, I will continue to be undertaking a number of operations myself at least into 2020.

In May 2017, I introduced the concept of the "Suporn Clinic Team" of surgeons, which is a small number of elite plastic surgeons dedicated to producing the highest standard of surgery possible, by using my own “Suporn Technique” for Sex Reassignment Surgery which I have been using since 2000. To date, Team Surgeons are as follows:

Dr Chayamote Chyangsu MD. (Dr "Bank") :

Dr Bank qualified as a MD in 2006, and has had residencies for General surgery in 2011, and Plastic surgery in 2014. Briefly, his credentials are as follows:

  • M.D., Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand, 2006
     
  • Professional Experience:
     
    • Internship in General Surgery, Department of Surgery, Chonburi Hospital, 2006 - 2007

    • General Surgery, Chonburi Hospital, Thailand, 2007 - 2011

    • Plastic Surgery, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thailand, 2011 - 2014

    • Staff Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Lecturer, Department of Surgery, Chonburi Hospital, affiliated co-training institute of King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, 2014-present

    • October  2018 started taking sole responsibility for SRS operations using the ”Suporn Technique”

  • Board Certifications:
     
    • Diploma of The Thai Board of General Surgery, 2011

    • Diploma of The Thai Board of Plastic Surgery, 2014

    • Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons of Thailand, 2016

    • International Society of Plastic Surgery, 2016

Dr Bank currently undertakes facial cosmetic surgery and body contouring procedures locally in his own clinic. However during his early tenure with me on The Suporn Team the intention is for him to focus on SRS only, before branching out in the future with us and possibly offering a wider range of surgical procedures.

Dr Bank started working with me in August 2017. Over the period of the next year or so, I shared many SRS operations with Dr Bank, during which time he took an increasing role in each operation, and in October 2018 he started undertaking SRS operations without any input from me. I am delighted with his work, as are the patients who have had their SRS operations performed by him. The technique he uses is now identical to mine in every respect, and is of the highest possible standards.

I am also now delighted to formally introduce our second team Surgeon, who some clients have already met.

Dr Navipa Dusitanond MD. (Dr "Prae") :

Dr Prae is already a very experienced SRS surgeon, who has been using a technique very similar to mine in her own hospital. She is a senior Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon and lecturer at the department of Surgery at Queen Savang Vadahna Memorial Hospital. She started joining me in my operating theatre during 2017 and 2018. During those operations we have worked together to ensure that when she operates on our clients without any input from me, the technique used will be a facsimile of the Suporn Technique in every respect. Because of her commitments to her own hospital, she will only be able to undertake a limited number of SRS “Team” operations during 2019, which for now will be done with me present in the Operating theater. However, during 2020 and beyond, I am hopeful she will be able to spend more time with the Suporn Team, and will be taking on operations without my presence. You may have no doubt, she is an excellent surgeon in whose skills I have complete faith. Her credentials are as follows:

  • Professional Experience:
     
    • Internship in General Surgery, Department of Surgery, Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital, Thailand, 2009-2012

    • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thailand, 2012-2017

    • Staff Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Lecturer, Department of Surgery, Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital, affiliated co-training institute of Burapha University, 2017-present

  • Board Certifications:
     
    • Diploma of The Thai Board of General Surgery, 2017

  • Professional memberships:
     
    • Member, Thai Medical Council, 2009-Present

    • Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand, 2017 - present

    • Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of Thailand, 2017 - present

I am rejuvenated by the prospect of extending my period of direct involvement with my new Team Surgeons, my wonderful wife who runs the Clinic with our irreplaceably excellent staff and – most of all – the wonderful clients we have from all over the world.
