    Hi guys,

    I'm contacting several doctors in the United States that are leaders in the field of Penile Enlargement Surgery to see if they would be interested in flying to Sydney for a week or two to perform this surgery locally.

    The doctors I'm contacting all use Alloderm (an acellular dermal matrix, and not the fat from your but cheeks) for the width procedure, and have extensive specialised practices and achieve excellent results from their clients.

    I know this isn't for everyone, so if you're no interested, please just move on. If you are interested in finding out more, let me know. Just wanted to get an idea on numbers as this will determine whether this will be worthwhile.

    Cheers
    TT

    I think you’ll find there’s a lot of interest. I mean, I’m interested, but procedures and techniques would have to be vastly improved to increase success rates before I’d be anywhere near considering taking such drastic action as surgery, even if it were cheaper. Obviously, I just don’t share your confidence.

    Why do you want them to fly to you? Wouldnt that make it so expensive and increase its cost ten fold?

    If we can get enough people intersted, and I mean around 20-40, then it would be more viable to pay a doctor to fly out here and put them up for a week (airfare and accomodation would be around $5000), compared to the $40,000 to $80,000 in airfares and accomodation if we all went over individually.

    It obviously won't work out if only a couple of people are interested though, so for now, I'm just seeing what everyone thinks. Good point though.

    I have seen PE Surgeons in Austrailia and in fact an Austrailian television special in the office of a U.S. Surgeon that I know.

    1.) Does the Austrailian Government grant full medical and surgical privileges to a foreign surgeon without prior application and agreement?

    2.) Who will be providing the malpractice insurance coverage for this limited visit and will an Austrailian based insurance provider provide coverage to a U.S. Surgeon for this kind of procedure?

    3.) Tax wise, would the income of the MD derived from the Austrailian procedures be taxible only in Austrailia, Austrailia and the United States and or the United States only as income. A total of 40 patients would total out to $200,000. If this dollar figure were taxed in multiple locations the MD involved would not be making squat. Also most U.S. MD's currently performing this surgery charge about $10,000-$12,000 in U.S. dollars for the dual-augmentation procedure here. If your $5,000 figure is based on U.S. dollars, the MD in question would be taking a 50% pay cut in most cases.

    4.) The U.S. MD would have to order numerous pre-operative medical tests including blood-work at an Austrailian laboratory. Will the Austrailian Laboratories take the medical orders of a foreign MD and work with that?

    5.) The use of Alloderm (a product of a company named Lifecell) is now under scrutiny by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Some MD's have been sent letters reminding them that the use of Alloderm for male-enhancement is not an approved use for this product of their company.

    This sounds very interesting, but you have a great number of hurdles to overcome before the patients can walk in the door at some pre-determined location. Also, you need to look at your local laws regarding a thing called "Agency". In the U.S., if you become an "agent" of any MD in a situation such as this and things go terribly wrong, you as an "agent" of that MD can be held responsible because they cannot hold the foreign MD responsible. This has been a major issue here with a percentage of the silicone injections taking place in Mexico when they go wrong. An example of this would be some guy who goes into a location and sets up appointments with a Mexican MD from Arizona, California or Texas which all border Mexico. That person can be held on the hook in the U.S. under what is called "agency" in law. I am sorry pal, it is not my intention to throw cold water on what may be something you want to do, but there are many legal hurdles for you to overcome and to of course protect your own ass from legal danger.

    Wow - great info. Thanks.

    As I said, I'm only just starting to investigate the possibility. You raise some really good points. Based on the logistics, and the points you've mentioned (mainly the fact that I could be held liable), it's probably best to leave it be.

    Thanks for your honestly though - very much appreciated.

    In saying that, if anyone wants to stay in touch with regard to this on a personal level, please feel free to PM me.
