Double Eyelid Surgery in Johor Bahru

The Ultimate Guide to Double Eyelid Surgery in Johor Bahru

Last fact-checked: 15 December 2019

Find out about double eyelid surgery in Johor Bahru, Malaysia’s second-largest city, in this mini Medical Departures guide. Discover what the procedure entails, why you might be a suitable candidate and how much you can save in this easily-accessible city just over the causeway from Singapore.

Double eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a popular procedure with Asians, some of whom prefer the double eyelid-look over their natural single eyelids. Around 50% of Asians have single eyelids, and while the double eyelid does, cosmetically, give a more ‘Western’ appearance to the eyes, it does open up the eye area, removing the hooded appearance which can sometimes interfere with vision.

Why Undergo Double Eyelid Surgery in Johor Bahru?

Johor Bahru is a particularly popular destination for Singaporeans who regularly make the short trip here to shop – the cost of living being far less expensive here than at home. The city provides a wealth of amenities for visitors, including modern shopping malls, dining and entertainment, as well as a wide variety of accommodation options.

For medical tourists, the city offers a great deal in terms of affordability yet still retains state-of-the-art facilities and medical expertise. Malaysia’s healthcare services are fairly advanced and it is one of the top medical tourism countries in the world with cosmetic surgery, dental care and fertility proving to be some of the most popular procedures. Medical professionals are highly-skilled with appropriate training, many of whom with international certifications.

While Malaysia is popular with Asians, it also offers a lot for tourists coming from further afield. The impact of the British presence in Malaysia’s history is still evident, from its old colonial buildings to the fact that English is still widely spoken in major cities. Aussies, Kiwis, Americans, Canadians and, of course, British will feel relatively at home here.

Malaysia certainly a spectacular holiday destination. It has exciting, modern cities, beautiful beaches, a unique culture and plenty of natural marvels to wonder at, including a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. If you are looking to combine surgical treatment with a holiday, then Malaysia and Johor Bahru should certainly be high on your shortlist of destinations.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

Booking with Medical Departures, put simply, gives you that much-needed peace-of-mind when undergoing surgery in a foreign country.

We know surgery is a major decision not to be taken lightly, and we realise that you may be even more apprehensive about it if you decide to travel overseas for your treatment. This is why we do background checks on our clinics, presenting them in a straightforward, easy-to-use manner on our website. Checks include legal and criminal records as well as onsite visits, verification of professional memberships and medical qualifications and collation of real patient testimonials.

Our Customer Care Team are also on hand around the clock, ready to help and answer any of your questions free of charge. 

What Happens During the Double Eyelid Procedure and How Long Does it Take?

Double eyelid surgery takes around an hour to perform and is usually carried out as an out-patient, which means you don’t need to stay in hospital overnight.

As with most types of surgery, there are a number of different techniques that may be adopted by your surgeon. One is the incision technique, where unwanted fatty tissue and skin are removed via an incision and the remaining tissue is stitched together forming an eyelid crease. This is, of course, permanent.

The second method is non-permanent, and may be more suitable for patients who do not have fatty deposits, or whose skin is thin. As part of this technique, the skin is folded and stitched to form a crease, rather than being cut away. This means that the skin may stretch over time, necessitating the procedure to be carried out again in the future.

What Is the Recovery Time After Double Eyelid Surgery?

Immediately after surgery, bruising and swelling will be evident, usually reaching its peak after a couple of days. While you may feel fine, it may seem as though the healing process is slow in terms of how you actually look as it could take up to a month before all the swelling and bruising has gone. That's why we always recommend that you get your holiday activities out of the way in Malaysia before undergoing any surgery; as for the days following, you can take it easy in your hotel or by the pool -- but do remember to take your surgeon's advice as every individual is different. 

Stitches may be removed between five and seven days later, or you may have dissolvable ones. You may have a feeling of tightness around the eyes or blurry vision, but this should return to normal after a few weeks.

As with any surgery, you will need to take things easy for six weeks, not embarking on any strenuous activities or vigorous exercise. Complete healing usually takes up to six months.
