Most people blame women for surrendering to the pressures of society in terms of beauty standards, and for undergoing plastic surgery techniques. However, a new trend which has arisen in Thailand shows not only women are likely to do this. This new procedure so many men engaged in consists of penis whitening, and it has already taken over the headlines all over the world.
The Thai clinic offers penis whitening procedures
Lelux Hospital is a medical facility in Bangkok, Thailand, which performs all kinds of plastic surgery interventions. Lately, the most popular practice among Thai men has become penis whitening, with over 100 men who come each month to undergo the procedure. It is performed with the help of lasers, which turn the general color tone of the genitals several shades whiter.
Penis whitening was first introduced at the clinic six months ago, but only lately did men become interested in the procedure. Doctors came up with this idea after a man came one day to the clinic and asked them to fix a dark spot he had on his sexual organ. Then, they developed a laser treatment which gets administered through five sessions.
Anything which makes the skin whiter is popular in Thailand
The treatment costs $650, and has attracted a lot of patients interested in undergoing penis whitening. Therefore, the age range of those who underwent it is 22-55. Although the procedure has been around for six months, it became popular worldwide after an image of a man who got his penis whitened appeared on social media. It baffled the people with its weirdness, as many of them thought such a procedure wasn’t possible.
In fact, for a country like Thailand, penis whitening doesn’t sound strange at all. There are many techniques and procedures which promise to give people whiter skin. However, not all of them involve surgeries or laser interventions, as there are many creams or face washes which promise to bleach the skin.
