Breast Lift in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Lift in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 10 September 2020

Childbirth, nursing, weight loss, age and gravity all take their toll on your breasts. With a breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, you can turn back the years by restoring perkiness—a great confidence boost for many women. Breast implants may also be used to restore volume if required. 

To save money, more and more people are turning to destinations like Malaysia where they can obtain the same quality of care as back home—for just a fraction of the price. Keep reading to learn more and discover some top clinics in Kuala Lumpur for your breast lift. 

Why Should I Consider KL for a Breast Lift?

Kuala Lumpur is a great place for a holiday and you should have enough time to see at least some of the attractions in the Malaysian capital, especially if you arrive a few days before undergoing treatment. The city boasts many avenues of entertainment: cultural and historic sites, museums, gardens, zoos, natural parks, cafes, restaurants, food courts, hawker stalls, shopping and more. It has a good year-round climate being in the tropical belt. 

Of course, the main driving force for medical tourism is price—with all types of cosmetic surgery much more affordable in Malaysia than countries like Australia, Europe and the US. Despite the savings, you won't compromise on quality: KL is home to numerous world-class medical facilities and the surgeons you'll find listed on our site are well qualified and trained. 

Also, as an Australian resident (and a long list of other nationalities), you won't need to go through paperwork and documentation formalities as you can get a visitor’s visa on arrival, valid for three months. So you simply have to decide, catch a flight and go.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

Searching online for breast lifts in Kuala Lumpur will inevitably give you a wealth of results. However, you will not find prices on most of the sites, unless you fill in various forms or contact them. You will also not be able to verify the claims made on the websites, ascertain whether they have any affiliations with organizations such as the Joint Commission International, and there will always be an element of uncertainty when you make a booking for complex cosmetic surgery.

Medical Departures helps take this uncertainty out of the picture. We offer greater transparency regarding pricing and you can check out the clinics on our site. We also conduct our own investigations regarding the qualifications and certifications of the doctors, the amenities of the hospitals, the staff training and other aspects, so that you have a comfortable experience.

How Long Does the Surgery Take and What Is the Downtime?

Breast lift surgery can take an hour or more. You will most likely have it under general anesthesia, so you will not be aware of anything during the surgery. You may need to stay overnight in the hospital or elect to leave a few hours later, particularly if you have had local anesthesia.

In brief, the surgery first involves incisions being made in different places around the breasts; you can agree beforehand with your doctor as to where you want these incisions and find out how visible they will be. At this point, the surgeon may insert the implants if previously decided. The excess skin is then cut and sutured or taped to finish the "lift". 

Drains will be inserted and you will be bandaged. After a day, you should be able to get out of bed and within three or four days, you will feel much better. You will probably be advised to take a week off from work, but you will have bruising and pain for quite some time. For at least six weeks, some activities will be restricted and it can take a few months for your breasts to feel normal and assume their final shape.

It is worth noting here that if your breasts are sagging but you are otherwise happy with the volume, you should be able to benefit from a breast lift alone. For loss of volume, you may want to combine a lift with breast implants. It is important to consult with a plastic surgeon and decide what's right for you, depending on your condition and what you want.

In Kuala Lumpur, breast lift surgery can cost as little as AUD 3,000. In Australia, the same surgery will cost you anything between AUD 6,000 and AUD 10,000. When you have to spend the money, this kind of amount really pinches whereas the prices in Kuala Lumpur are affordable.
