Angle Mandible ResectionContact Clinic
An angle mandible resection surgery is one of the many types of facial feminization surgical procedures. The goal of an angle mandible resection is to rework a person’s face, targeting its defects such as wrinkles, sagging, and drooping, and creating a smooth, gentler sloping contour, which effectively makes a person’s face look softer and more feminine. Although not as common as facelifts and brow lifts, a mandibular angle resection also brings the facial features closer together in both size and shape, thus making the face look smaller and younger. People with square, angled jaws make good candidates for this procedure. The patient may be required to stay in the hospital for one to two days for monitoring.
Required anesthesia: General anesthesia Offered to international patients: Yes Recovery time: Two to four months Length of procedure: Minimum of 1 ½ hours
A breast augmentation is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the use of breast implants or autologous fat taken from other body parts. This procedure aims to restore the breast volume, and can effectively enlarge the size of the breast. In the procedure, the patient is placed under local or general anesthesia before an incision is made either around the areola or under the breast. This gives the surgeon an access hole so he can create a pocket inside the breasts where the implants will be placed before the wound is sutured closed. When using autologous fat, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, as this option is less invasive. Fat is harvested from the patient’s buttocks, thighs, or abdomen through liposuction. This is purified using a centrifuge before it is re-injected to the breasts to achieve the desired shape and size. Medical tourists can take advantage of both procedures at TNC Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand.
Breast Lift Surgery
A breast lift is a breast enhancement procedure that specifically helps women with drooping breasts. Also called a mastopexy, a breast lift is the perfect solution to sagging and uneven breasts, drooping nipples, or a decreased breast volume caused by old age. The surgery aims to lift up the breasts, although it can also change the position of the areola and nipple to complete the look of younger, fuller breasts. Plastic surgeons at TNC Clinic perform this procedure by first, administering local or general anesthetic (depending on the preference of the patient). Incisions will be made on the side of the breast, and if needed, excess fat and tissues will be removed before the breasts are lifted. The areola and nipple will also be repositioned to the middle section of the newly-lifted breast. This is performed while making sure that the ability of the patient to breastfeed is not affected. The wound is then sutured closed using absorbable tissues. Breast lift is offered by TNC Clinic to domestic patients and medical travelers in Bangkok.
Cheekbone surgery (Cheek Implantation)Contact Clinic
Cheek bone surgery, also known as cheek bone implantation or augmentation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure where prostheses designed to create the illusion of more defined cheek bones are implanted into the face. Performed under local or general anesthesia, this procedure involves creating incision inside the cheek and creating pocket inside where the implants are placed. This effectively lifts up the mid-face section and makes a person look younger. Cheek bone surgery has become popular of late because the cheeks are very prone to thinning and sagging, creating a sunken and hollow look. Plastic surgeons at TNC Clinic perform this procedure using state-of-the-art medical equipment and FDA-approved implants. Thus, medical travelers are ensured of quality and their safety during the surgery.
Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that surgically reshapes the chin to improve a person’s overall appearance. There are two main methods used in this procedure: inserting implants and adjusting the bones of the chin. Inserting implants require a less invasive procedure wherein the implant is placed in a pocket under the muscles and attached to the bones; it will be inserted through a small incision made usually inside the mouth or under the chin so that the cut will not be visible after the procedure. Implants range from ones made from real fat or bone to silicone, Teflon or Dacron. But if some bones need to be moved or reshaped to achieve the desired look, the procedure will require a larger cut inside the mouth, specifically along the lower gums, so the surgeon can easily access the chin bone. For both types of chin augmentation, scarring is minimal and can be easily hidden from view. TNC Clinic aims to help patients who seek high quality but affordable chin augmentation procedure to improve their overall appearance or resolve problems such as receding chins or bite problems.
Decoration vaginal discharge (Hymenoplasty)Contact Clinic
Hymenoplasty or decoration vaginal discharge is a surgical procedure that reconstructs the hymen that was torn either accidentally or through sexual intercourse. This procedure is typically not offered as part of mainstream gynecology but medical tourists can take advantage of this procedure at TNC Clinic in Bangkok. This same-day surgery can be completed using varieties of operation depending on the unique circumstances of the patient. Typically, the surgeon will suture the tear in the hymen to facilitate healing. In other cases, a new hymen is created using the flap of the vaginal lining. Regardless of the technique used, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with oral sedation. Patients, who are able to go home right after the procedure, are advised to refrain from having sexual intercourse for three months.
Ear Surgery/OtoplastyContact Clinic
Otoplasty refers to a surgery that reshapes the ear to correct certain problems such as a defective ear structure, protruding ears, or misshapen ears. It greatly benefits people who are bothered by abnormally big or small ears, as well as ears that are not balanced or are oddly shaped. This procedure can improve the shape, size, and positioning of the ears, and can also help resolve emotional, psychological, and behavioral problems that arise from having problematic ears. Otoplasty is available for both ears as well as for just a single ear. It is sometimes availed of together with other facial reconstructing surgeries. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is made available by TNC Clinic to both local patients as well as medical travelers. Recovery time is between three to seven days although the patient can go back to normal activities after 48 hours.
Eyelid Surgery (Upper Eyelid Surgery)
Upper eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat and skin in the eyelids to achieve a younger-looking appearance. Also known as blepharoplasty, upper eyelid surgery aims to remove loose excess eyelid skin and repair drooping eyelids caused by aging. Functional eyelid surgery also repairs an eyelid that droops or sags low enough to impair a person’s vision, making some activities such as driving, quite dangerous. This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, based on the patient’s preference. It’s a same-day operation with five to seven-day recovery time. Medical tourists, who seek high quality but affordable upper eyelid surgery, whether for aesthetic or functional purposes, may consult highly qualified plastic surgeons at TNC Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand.

It is performed to smooth out wrinkles, rejuvenate sagging skin, and lift the cheeks and the forehead to avoid a drooping appearance. Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is an invasive but safe and proven procedure that repositions the muscles, skin, and fats found in the face to improve its overall appearance. It can also be done in conjunction with a nose reshaping, an eyelid surgery, and a brow and forehead lift.

Facial Fat Graft
A facial fat graft, also called fat injection or fat grafting, is a procedure wherein excess fat from other body parts is transferred to the face to reduce wrinkles and to basically achieve a younger-looking appearance. The excess fat is most commonly taken from the buttocks or the upper thighs. The main goal of this procedure is to lift up facial areas that are creased and have sunken with age. It effectively plumps up the face, thus rejuvenating a person’s appearance. It is a more effective and more permanent alternative to temporary facial fillers, and is known for its safety and its long-lasting results. TNC Clinic offers high quality facial fat graft to medical tourists in Bangkok, Thailand.
A forehead surgery or forehead lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reverse the signs of aging such as wrinkling and sagging of the skin. Commonly performed together with a hairline lowering surgery and a brow lift, this requires local or general anesthesia depending on the preference of the patient. The surgeon creates a long incision just below the hairline to tighten underlying muscles and tissues. If needed, excess skin and fat are also removed before the incision is sutured closed. Patients, who prefer minimally invasive forehead surgery, may opt for endoscopic forehead lift, which follows the same procedure but uses smaller incisions. Botox can also reverse the signs of aging on the forehead but offers temporary results that typically last from six to eight months. TNC Clinic offers all procedures to both local patients and medical travelers.
Injected Fat Ratio (Fat transfer)Contact Clinic
A fat transfer, more commonly known as a fat injection or injected fat ratio, is the process of injecting fat into problem areas of the body to create a fuller appearance and, in the process, smoothens out wrinkles and saggy areas. The fat is taken from body parts that have greater fat volume, such as the buttocks or the thighs. This procedure offers the additional benefit of improving the blood circulation in the area where the fat is injected. Fat transfers are most commonly done on the face, where the effects of aging are most visible. Vulnerable areas such as the skin under the eyes and the cheeks will benefit most from this treatment. However, fat transfer to any part of the body is also possible. TNC Clinic, which aims to help medical tourists achieve a younger-looking appearance, offers fat transfer and other beauty treatments at affordable prices.
Jaw ResectionContact Clinic
A jaw resection to adjust the taper face is a moderately invasive surgery procedure that requires general anesthesia. It is performed by making a small incision along the jawbone inside the mouth and making the necessary adjustments to the jaw ridge and jawbone to make the jaws appear smaller and smoother. The main goal is to taper the sides, although if needed, the surgeon also trims the corners toward the back of the face. Jaw contouring is now very popular because it effectively makes the face look narrower. This procedure is also usually combined with a facelift or neck lift, especially among middle-aged patients. Highly qualified plastic surgeons at TNC Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand perform jaw resection that is extremely popular not just with Thais but also medical travelers.
Lifting Neck Surgery (Neck Contouring)
A neck lift surgery, which is also called lower rhytidectomy, is an effective solution for those who have aging and sagging skin on the neck and chin areas. The main goal of this procedure is to achieve a younger and smoother appearance. It is usually done as part of a group of procedures that includes upper and lower eye surgery and facelift. In the procedure, which can be performed under local or general anesthesia, small incisions are made either under the chin or behind the ears where neck muscles can be easily accessed. The neck muscles are tightened and if needed, excess skin and fat are removed using either a scalpel or laser. The wounds are then sutured closed. TNC Clinic, which is dedicated to helping patients achieve a younger looking appearance without spending a fortune, offers this procedure to both domestic clients and medical tourists in Bangkok.
Rhinoplasty, more popularly known as a nose job, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to reconstruct the nose and correct any problem that affects it, be it aesthetic or functional. Although it is most commonly used as a cosmetic procedure, a rhinoplasty is also performed to correct breathing problems. For those seeking an aesthetic adjustment of their nose, a rhinoplastycan reshape it, change the angle, or increase or reduce the size of the nose. Rhinoplasty procedures are conducted by making an incision to gain access to the nasal bone and cartilage supporting the nose. Depending on the goal, these can be sculpted, rearranged, augmented, or reduced. Since incisions are made inside the nose, there is no visible scarring to worry about after the procedure.
Required anesthesia: Local anesthesia with oral sedation or general anesthesia Offered to international patients: Yes Recovery time: One to two weeks Length of procedure: Minimum of one hour
Sex Reassignment SurgeryContact Clinic
A male to female sex reassignment surgery is a surgical procedure that aims to convert a penis to a functional and aesthetically-pleasing vagina. The procedure involves several stages to remove the penis and the testes, and construct a vagina by cutting and opening a flap in the scrotum. The removal of the penis usually leaves some excess skin, which is then used to create the labia. Once surgery is completed, the body will begin producing more estrogen, the female hormone, which will gradually change the body by widening the hips, stimulating breast growth, and preventing the growth of facial hair. In some patients, even the voice begins to increase in pitch. Medical travelers, who elect to have this procedure performed at TNC Clinic in Bangkok, have the option to avail other procedures such as hormone therapy, facial hair removal, and breast augmentation to speed up the process.
VASER LipoSelection is an FDA-approved form of liposuction that relies on ultrasonic energy to selectively remove fat from specific parts of the body. This procedure is now widely used in body contouring treatments. Its main tool is the VASER or Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy and Resonance, a 3rd-generation ultrasound device that converts ultrasonic energy into vibration energy that breaks fat cells apart while minimizing risk to other tissues. The fat is then mixed with fluid for easier suctioning through thin tubes; this process is called emulsification, and it is an important part of VASER LipoSelection because it reduces surface damage and minimizes pain. Since a local anesthetic is used, the procedure is pain-free. Also, to minimize collateral damage such as inflammation and bruising, the blood vessels in the affected area are first shrunk. All in all, its main advantages are better skin tightening, quicker recovery, less post-operative pain, and smoother skin surface due to the small size of the probes used in the procedure. Due to its many advantages, VASER LipoSelection is highly recommended by TNC Clinic to both local patients and medical travelers in Bangkok, Thailand.
