A lot of men want to change the pigmentation of the skin on their penis in Thailand. The penis whitening laser procedure was presented and is currently offered by a cosmetic surgery Thai clinic. A Facebook post written by an employee of Bangkok's Lelux Hospital promoting the procedure has received nearly 20,000 shares and more than 10,000 comments.
Most relevant, the video uploaded with the post, which showed a man lying on a clinic's table as the doctor seemingly performed the laser procedure had been viewed more than 4 million times by Thursday. “No pain, no need to recover,” the promo said. The Lelux Hospital in Bangkok began offering the penis whitening procedure six months ago. It now receives about 100 clients a month who want their genitals to look lighter. Most clients are aged between 22 and 55 years old.
The procedure is performed over several sessions, each costing about $155 dollar. The manager of the clinic declared that all of the equipment which is used received certification by Thailand's Ministry of Public Health. According to him, the procedure is so popular clients need to book at least a week in advance. “These days a lot of people are asking about it,” revealed Bunthita Wattanasiri, manager for the skin and laser department at the hospital. A large number of the clinic’s clients are also part of Thailand’s LGBTQ community. Last year, the same clinic had started offering a “3D Vagina” procedure in which women could have their own fat injected into their genitals for a fuller aesthetic.
