Breast Reduction in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Reduction in Malaysia

Last fact-checked: 14 July 2020

A breast reduction in Malaysia can help you if you’ve always wanted smaller breasts and want to save on the costs of this often expensive procedure back home. 

Who Is Suitable for a Breast Reduction?

Women with big breasts often have to contend with physical, psychological or emotional issues. It’s common to feel self-conscious when faced with people constantly staring at you, especially at a young age; you may find clothes don’t fit, that it’s difficult to exercise and feel too embarrassed to flaunt your figure. 

Back pain is also a serious issue associated with larger bosoms, which can worsen after weight gain, pregnancy or breast-feeding.

As well as alleviating these problems, breast reduction surgery is an instant way of losing weight—taking off as much as 500 grams per breast. This can help patients look and feel slimmer; find bras that fit well and finally wear the clothes you always wanted to.

Why Should You Have Breast Reduction Surgery in Malaysia?

Unless you have very good insurance and can prove that you need it for medical reasons, a breast reduction is normally classed as an elective procedure, i.e. it is carried out for aesthetic reasons. In countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the UK and other parts of Europe, the price can be unaffordable for most. Even if your insurance or healthcare service does agree to help, chances are you’ll still be required to pay for most of it. 

By booking this same procedure at one of our background-checked clinics or hospitals in Malaysia, you can save between 50 and 70%, which works out to be thousands less than back home (even when taking into consideration all travel expenses). 

Price is not the only factor you should consider. Malaysia is a beautiful and advanced country with well-trained doctors who have often gained experience abroad. The medical facilities here that are listed on our site are modern, feature the latest equipment and state-of-the-art technologies, and many have received Joint Commission International accreditation. Importantly, you’ll find that all of the surgeons and support staff speak English, so you won’t face any communication problems while undergoing treatment—even though you may be thousands of miles away from home.

A trip to this exotic Southeast Asian country also gives you the chance to enjoy a holiday or explore one of the big cities like Kuala Lumpur before you have surgery. The capital is home to skyscrapers, a vibrant nightlife and dining scene, huge shopping malls and a handful of interesting cultural attractions. 

If you are a beach person, Malaysia won’t disappoint with its thousands of miles of coastline and must-visit tropical islands, like Langkawi. 

Do note that if you want to combine surgery with a holiday, make sure you get your travel out of the way before surgery, not after. Following a breast reduction, you will need to rest at or around your hotel for a number of days before flying home. Your surgeon will require you to stay out of the sun for at least two weeks, to allow your treatment wounds to heal properly.

Why Shouldn't I Simply Book on My Own?

If you have no experience in Malaysia, it can be difficult to know where to start in your search for a reputable clinic. Searching online can be a frustrating process, with many clinics exaggerating the quality of their services or falsifying testimonials. Booking through Medical Departures negates this risk; we work with hundreds of clinics around the world and have helped many thousands of patients receive quality treatment abroad over the last 10 years. 

We have checked all our Malaysian doctors' credentials and experience, the facilities available at the clinics and hospitals, the equipment there and the communication skills of the staff. This provides you with a safety factor when you book through us. We never list any clinic or hospital that doesn’t meet our high standards.

How Long Does Breast Reduction Surgery Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

Breast reduction surgery (or reduction mammoplasty as it is medically known) is a somewhat lengthy procedure. The total time really depends on the shape and size of your breasts and where the doctor intends to place the incisions as there are various ways to do so. 

The surgeon has to cut, remove tissue and fat, restructure the breasts and stitch your skin back together. This usually requires the nipples to be repositioned as well. The surgery is done under general anesthesia and takes between three and five hours. It normally entails an overnight hospital stay.

After the surgery, you will be bandaged up and probably have drains inserted to extract excess fluid. Painkillers will also be prescribed if necessary. You should estimate the downtime to be at least two to three weeks, depending on the pain and restrictions you have. After that, you will be able to resume work, but complete recovery will take around six weeks.

You can consult with your doctor as to when you will be able to fly home from Malaysia following your surgery. 

How Much Can I Save on Breast Reduction Surgery in Malaysia?

In Australia, breast reduction mammoplasty will cost you between AUD 12,000 and AUD 18,000. If you are fortunate enough to get some insurance contribution, you may get only 50 percent of the amount. 

In Malaysia, you can expect to pay around AUD 3,000 to AUD 4,500 for breast reduction surgery, which for some patients can mean savings close to AUD 10,000. [Please note: these are average price comparisons calculated at the time of writing.]
