With an eyebrow lift in Malaysia, you can remove wrinkles and furrows on your forehead and smoothen the top part of your face, taking years off your age. Also called browplasty or a forehead lift, this aesthetic procedure may be performed alone or along with other facial procedures, like blepharoplasty (eye bag removal) or a facelift, and is likely to save you a considerable amount of money compared to having it at home.
A browplasty will also help your eyebrows achieve a more natural arch, particularly if they are drooping due to age and gravity. The procedure will open up your eyes as well. Different kinds of surgeries may be used for a browplasty and you need to consult with a doctor to find out which kind is right for your face and your situation.
Malaysia is easy to reach from Australia and most major international airlines fly there. Cheap or reasonably priced flights will cut your costs, which is a major factor when weighing up whether to head abroad for surgery. Malaysia is also a top tourist destination and attracts millions of international tourists each year, with a good chunk of these coming from down under. The country has superior medical facilities that make it popular with medical tourists.
It's also possible to combine a holiday in this exotic country along with your surgical procedure; enjoy your holiday at a beach or hill resort, indulge in exotic national and international cuisines and have a great time in the clubs, restraints, nightspots and bars. The country is also a premier shopping destination as it is reasonably priced whether you buy local or international brands. You can choose to stay in a budget hotel or a luxury one and all of them are fairly affordable since it is a major tourist hub.
An internet search in the area you are in will throw up many facilities in Malaysia offering cut-price plastic surgery; however, going through this route comes with a degree of risk that can easily be avoided by booking through a trusted online platform like Medical Departures.
