Thailand a “laughing stock” as European doctors slam penis whitening at Bangkok hospital

Doctors at a surgeon’s conference held in Paris on Sunday warned men not to have their penises whitened in Thailand.

This comes despite the fact that the Tourism Authority of Thailand promotes the hospital where the procedure is done in the Bangkok area.

Lelux hospital administrator Bantit Watanasiri told the “International Master Course on Aging Science” in the French capital that three or four patients a day were coming to her facility for the treatment.

She said it costs 520 Euros or 20,500 baht for five whitening treatments.

“We have about 100 customers a month,” she said.

But experts in Paris slammed the Thais in what Thai Rath said was making the country a laughing stock in the international cosmetic surgery community.

Dr Fabian Bouchet cautioned: “Really – you should not do that”.

While Italian Dr Maximilliano Brambilla said the chemicals used could cause severe adverse reactions and should only be used as a last resort in cosmetic procedure.

Thai public health authorities have already warned the public not to have the treatment done at the Nonthaburi hospital.

Experts said either laser or chemical treatment could leave Thai todgers being even blacker than before.

An internet search by Thaivisa shows that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) still recommends the Lelux hospital as an excellent facility for cosmetic surgery in Thailand.
