Turn back the years with an eye bag removal in Malaysia. You can save a substantial sum on the costs compared to back home and have a great holiday at the same time.
Puffy eyes, under-eye circles and wrinkles can make it look like you have not had enough sleep and even hinder vision at times. Medically called blepharoplasty, eye bag surgery is a relatively easy fix that lifts your face and makes your eyes look much fresher.
The surgery is a fairly straightforward procedure and not only removes eye bags, reduces puffiness of the eyes but even decreases wrinkles around the eyes. Even younger people who have eye bags can have this surgery on upper eyelids, lower eyelids or the whole eye.
This surgery is a cosmetic procedure and, according to insurance companies, carried out purely for aesthetic reasons. Since it is an elective procedure, insurance does not cover the cost of the surgery. In Malaysia, it is an eminently affordable procedure, so you can easily have it done while on holiday in this stunning Southeast Asian country. The best advice is to get your more vigorous holiday activities and travel out of the way before your surgery, but this particular procedure does allow for you to get out and about afterward, or just relax in the comfort of your hotel as you recuperate.
Malaysia is a top tourist destination and you are sure to enjoy your time there. It has loads of attractions in whichever part of Malaysia you choose to have the surgery. It has a great deal of natural beauty in terms of forests, reserves and gardens - and it is also one of only 17 megadiverse countries in the world rich in biodiversity. It also has historic and cultural relevance and museums and monuments to see. At the same time, the country is a testament to modern design and living, with its huge skyscrapers, malls, bridges, monorail and more. As a multicultural place, you can sample the best of cuisines there.
Where surgery is concerned, it is always best not to take chances. When you search online, you will hit upon many sites that promise great results at seemingly too-good-to-be-true prices. And in many cases, they probably are. You simply cannot be sure of the results with a quick Google search since you really have no way of knowing whether the claims are based on facts or not.
At Medical Departures, we take the uncertainty out of the booking process.
We check out the clinics and hospitals, make sure that the doctors there are well qualified (most have certifications from western countries) and experienced, the staff speak English and the amenities are good. You can rely on us to make sure that you have a comfortable experience at a great price.
The time taken for eye bag surgery will depend on whether you are getting both lids done or only one. The procedure involves both cutting and suturing; the doctor will have to cut the skin, remove excess fat and then suture it back. Usually, the upper eyelids have stitches that disappear into the natural fold of the eyes and in the lower eyelids, just around the lash line.
Some bruising and swelling are inevitable and you should be prepared for that. Your eyes will be bandaged for some time and later you will have to wear dark glasses to protect the eyes. There will be some restrictions of activities and you will not be able to wear contact lenses or eye makeup while the eyes are healing. Within 10-15 days you should be back to normal.
In Australia, for example, you can expect to pay between AUD 5,000 and AUD 9,000, so it is certainly not cheap. If you have only your upper or lower eyelids done, the cost may be lower.
In Malaysia, however, you will pay a fraction of the price. For complete blepharoplasty, you can expect to pay around AUD 3,000.
