Thank you very much for your question.
Regarding for SRS (Penile Skin Inversion), the total cost is US$8,160 (self-Lubricate
with organism). If you are HIV+, we have to add an extra charge for you. Therefore, the
total cost will be US$8,160 + 30% = US$10,600.
This cost has already inclusive 5 nights free of charged in hospital private room after
surgery, medical cares, medical treatments, doctor fee, general anesthesia, Lab Tests,
and post-op cares
Totals stay in Bangkok, Thailand after surgery are thirteen nights included with post-op
cares. Additional night in Bangkok, I can search a hotel closed to PAI for you rate per
night start from US$30-US$65 per night.
How to make an appointment/surgery;
You need to have a letter from your psychiatrist doctor stat that you are fit for surgery
or ask your hormone doctor stat how long you have been taken hormone or if you are over
18 years old and can not get any requirement information. Please ask your family member
to write you a letter stat knowing the reason to come for surgery.
