Facelift in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Facelift in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 12 August 2020

So, you don’t like the look of your face when you look in the mirror—with the telltale signs of aging, drooping skin and wrinkles all too obvious. If you have considered surgery but been put off by the high prices, a facelift in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, could be the answer. 

It is no longer only the rich and famous or celebrities who opt for facelifts. More and more people are spending money on themselves and with the youth culture more pervasive than ever before, why not? If money is stopping you, then think Kuala Lumpur: the prices are astonishingly low and affordable for rhytidectomy (the medical name for facelift).

The procedure will give you your smooth skin back, make those wrinkles disappear, and pull everything a little more taught. Discover how you can turn back the clock with the help of Medical Departures.

Why Have a Facelift in Kuala Lumpur?

Apart from the fact that this cosmetic surgery is eminently affordable in Kuala Lumpur, one advantage of medical tourism is getting the chance to explore another country, with the capital being a major global tourist destination. You can enjoy your trip to KL, as it is popularly called, taking in the sights, sounds and smells while exploring a vast range of attractions—both old and new.

Visit the KL Tower, the Petronas Towers, numerous shopping malls and museums, bazaars and more. Have a plethora of dining options ranging from restaurants and cafes at various price points, food courts and hawker stalls.

What’s more, if you are a resident of Australia, New Zealand, the UK or dozens of other Western countries, you don’t need a visa. This means it’s as simple as booking your (free) appointment through Medical Departures, coordinating with your chosen surgeon, booking your flight and you’re all set to go! All you need is a valid passport as you get a visa on arrival for three months. This gives you the flexibility to shop around for cheap flights, thus saving even more money, making your trip a whole lot more affordable.

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures? 

It might seem as though booking is easy with the Internet at your fingertips; however ‘seems’ is where the problem lies. When you book directly through a clinic’s own site, you run the risk of being persuaded by false or outdated information. For instance, is your prospective clinic accredited to any major organizations such as the Joint Commission International? Are there verified reviews from past patients? Do you have things like before and after photos at your disposal to make a more informed decision? 

As a major surgical procedure on your face, you really don’t want to be taking any unnecessary risks with this type of procedure.

When you book through Medical Departures, you know that we are a reliable site with lots of experience. We provide a safety factor for you as we conduct various checks before listing clinics on our site. We make sure that the doctors are qualified and experienced, that the staff is trained, that the hospital has good amenities, that the people there speak English, so you don’t face a communication problem in a foreign country.

How Long Does a Facelift Take to Carry Out and What Is the Recovery Time?

The time taken for the surgery will depend on the work needed. Variables to consider include but are not limited to:

  • Whether you have a simple facelift, mini-facelift, thread lift—all of these will require incisions to access facial muscles and tissue that will be cut, tightened and sutured.

  • As part of this same procedure, you may opt to add brow lift, eyelid lift, and/or neck lift as well as a facelift. 

  • You may also want implants or liposuction carried out on different areas of your face. 

Each added procedure increases the time taken, which can vary from one to four hours. While facelift surgery is usually done under local anesthesia, you may prefer to stay overnight in the hospital for better care and monitoring, though you can be discharged after a few hours.

The recovery period will last for two to three weeks, but you will be able to move around in a couple of days, depending on how much pain and discomfort you have. You should be able to resume work after a few weeks, though you may take up to six months to feel fine.

What Is the Cost of a Facelift in Kuala Lumpur?

In Kuala Lumpur, the cost of a normal facelift will start at AUD 2,500. For extra procedures, the cost will inevitably go up. In Australia, the cost of facelift will range from around AUD 13,000 and AUD 15,000, allowing you savings of over 70% in KL. 

[Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
