The Ultimate Guide to Eyebrow Lift in Kuala Lumpur

An eyebrow lift helps to remove wrinkles, giving your brows their natural arch back and making you look younger. Also known as a browplasty, this cosmetic surgery also removes those furrows from your forehead and around your eyes.

Discover the advantages of having a brow lift in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, with Medical Departures on your side.

What Should I Know About Eyebrow Lift Surgery?

  • Eyebrow lift surgery is performed to make your face look refreshed and younger, with patients experiencing improved confidence and self-esteem.
  • Different techniques can be used, including an endoscopic lift and hairline brow lift.
  • Typically performed under general anaesthetic, the procedure can be performed at an outpatient surgical facility or in a hospital.
  • Scars are virtually invisible and hidden in the hairline
  • An eyebrow lift is sometimes called a forehead lift since it encompasses the entire forehead.
  • It is often combined with other procedures to target other signs of ageing, such as an eyelid lift.

Why Consider Having an Eyebrow Lift in Kuala Lumpur?

The main driving force behind any medical travel is the cost savings, and in Kuala Lumpur, it's possible to make substantial savings of over 70%. 

Kuala Lumpur promises plenty to see in the way of tourist attractions, museums, cultural and historic sites and more. Hit the road to explore the nearby Genting Highlands, or head north for a beach break around Penang and the surrounding region.

Another plus point about heading to KL is that it's readily accessible from Australia, as well as other parts of Asia and even Europe, with direct (albeit long) flights from most major cities. Australians receive a visa on arrival for three months. Check with your travel agent for visa requirements.

Finding Reputable Brow Lift Surgeons in Kuala Lumpur

While you can search online and find many sites that promise you the moon, you should be cautious as many will not hold any associations with recognised bodies, such as the Joint Commission International. It is not advisable to book entirely on your own as there is often no way to verify important criteria such as clinic accreditations and specialists' experience. 

Booking through a trusted site like Medical Departures provides you safe, secure and affordable options for cosmetic surgery. Our verification process involves:

  • Investigating to see that the doctors at the clinics or hospitals are fully qualified, trained, experienced and accredited.
  • Verifying that staff members are trained and hospitable.
  • Carrying out onsite visits to ensure the amenities and equipment are up to standard.
  • Carrying out patient interviews after surgery to ensure that you have a good experience.

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

Surgeons use different types of surgical techniques for an eyebrow lift:

  • The older technique, called the coronal brow lift, uses open surgery where a large incision is made from ear to ear, with extra skin cut and restitched into the scalp area.
  • The more modern technique uses an endoscope where tiny incisions are made through which the skin can be cut and sutured; this technique results in less scarring and is equally effective.
  • Your doctor may also discuss options for a non-endoscopic brow lift or a transblepheroplastic brow lift.

The surgeon may use local or general anaesthesia for the surgery.

You will need to restrict any strenuous activities for at least two weeks and be on medication for some time after the surgery. You will want to follow your surgeon's advice regarding follow-up appointments and how to take care of the area and the skin on your own.

What Is the Cost of an Eyebrow Lift in Kuala Lumpur?

An eyebrow lift (or browplasty) is an expensive procedure, more so if it is combined with a facelift, a mini-facelift or a blepharoplasty. You can expect to pay between AUD $10,000 and AUD $15,000 for the surgery back home, while prices in Kuala Lumpur start at just AUD $2,000 for the same kind of procedure.
