The APAC region has always been at the forefront of providing reliable and innovative plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine options at competitive costs. A renowned center pivotal to the region’s prowess is Rattinan Medical Center. It provides world-class medical plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine services backed by a state-of-the-art facility and a team of highly trained and experienced professionals committed to delivering exceptional care to every patient.
Rattinan Medical Center offers various high-quality aesthetic and plastic surgery services, with a particular focus on the four b’s; bariatric surgery, body contouring, breast surgery, and buttocks surgery. It understands the unique cultural and aesthetic preferences of different regions and customizes procedures to meet patient-specific needs while ensuring the utmost safety and comfort. In addition, it is the first ambulatory plastic surgery center accredited by the American Accreditation Commission International (AACI) in the APAC region.
“We stay ahead of the curve by actively seeking out new technologies that are either available or will be available in the market in the coming years. This proactive approach ensures we remain up-to-date with the latest advancements and continuously improve our services to achieve better patient outcomes,” says Dr. Suthipong Treeratana, founder and CEO of Rattinan Medical Centre.
Rattinan Medical Center’s commitment to excellence extends beyond its medical services, exemplified by its robust partnerships with leading plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine organizations worldwide. Its partners comprise three renowned international organizations; the international society of aesthetic plastic surgery (ISAPS) based in the U.S., the international fellowship in advanced aesthetic science (IFAAS) in Korea, and the international plastic surgery courses (IPSAC) in France. This trio of renowned collaborations empowers Rattinan Medical Center with valuable resources and opportunities for professional development in aesthetic medicine and plastic surgery. They also push it to consistently uphold high standards and remain a definitive representative of the larger plastic surgery and aesthetics industry.
Highlighting Rattinan Medical Center’s commitment to innovation is a success story where it assisted a patient struggling with limited pain management options after an extensive abdominal procedure. In this instance, the patient’s recovery process was hindered by their reliance on morphine, which has adverse effects like euphoria, insomnia, and nausea. For this patient, Rattinan Medical Center discovered a new pain management technique called “Pain Ball,” developed by the medical company Baxter. Originally developed for a different purpose, Rattinan Medical Center saw the potential to repurpose Pain Ball for post-surgery pain management.
Using the Pain Ball technique, Rattinan infused a numbing medication into the patient’s surgical site, which remarkably allowed them to completely eliminate their pain without experiencing adverse medication-driven side effects. This is one of the success stories Rattinan shared at a congress with a vision to aid other practitioners in treating their pain-ridden patients with innovative technologies.

Rattinan Medical Center’s commitment to performing high-quality and safe procedures is rooted in its dedicated scoring system, which assesses a doctor’s skills and experience to determine their proficiency in specific procedures. It tracks key performance indicators (KPIs), like patient complaints and revision surgeries, to ensure unmatched patient safety and minimize risks.
The guiding principle at Rattinan Medical Center is “Do No Harm,” which guides its surgeons to always avoid compromising functionality while performing aesthetic procedures. Recently, it demonstrated its dedication to patient safety and care by taking on a pro bono case of a woman who underwent a botched plastic surgery that left her with an uneven and disfigured face and legs. After spending three years seeking revision surgery with no success, she finally found the help she needed at Rattinan Medical Center, which restored her confidence and allowed her to emphasize the importance of selecting a trustworthy and secure plastic surgery facility as a spokesperson for safer procedures.
At Rattinan Medical Center, every patient is treated like a family member, which plays a key role in providing the best possible care. This patient-centric approach has earned it an excellent reputation, with patients worldwide coming to Rattinan Medical Center through word of mouth and referrals.
Rattinan Medical Center is poised to transform into a full-fledged hospital as part of its ongoing commitment to excellence by the end of 2023. This transition will align with the center’s philosophy of providing the highest level of care, enabling it to offer better and safer services to patients seeking impactful plastic surgery and aesthetics.
