Demand for cosmetic surgery is increasing throughout Europe, North America, and Australasia, but costs remain high and unaffordable to many. As such, more people than ever are crossing international borders in search of inexpensive yet high-quality cosmetic procedures. As cosmetic treatments are not usually covered by insurance or national healthcare schemes, these medical tourists are motivated by saving money and can do so while also covering additional costs such as flights and accommodation.

The Gleneagles Hospital in Penang is a popular cosmetic surgery hospital that has received many Medical Departures patients.

The Gleneagles Hospital has some of the most modern and best-equipped facilities in Malaysia. Since opening in 1973 it has become a large multiple-complex facility, including multiple operating theaters with digitally operated controls, private rooms, and consultation suites. International hygiene protocols are strictly implemented: once inside you would not know whether you are in Penang or Sydney.
