Hair Transplant in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Hair Transplant in Malaysia

Last fact-checked: 13 November 2019

Do you look in the mirror and worry about thinning hair, a receding hairline or bald patches? A hair transplant in Malaysia may just be the answer to your hair problems. If you have already tried everything ranging from "miracle" hair products to approved medicines and nothing has worked, then hair transplant is the only solution if you want that full head of hair back.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not only men who suffer from hair loss. Women, too, suffer from thinning hair and even bald patches. Hair loss directly impacts your look and leads to a loss of confidence; if you constantly stress about your hair, you will lose even more hair!

Some kinds of hair loss may be temporary – it may be due to stress, hormonal problems, medications or even certain diseases like cancer. Often this loss is temporary and hair will grow back as before. At times, hair loss may be permanent. More often than not, baldness is due to heredity and there is nothing much you can do about that except hair transplant.

Why Opt for a Hair Transplant in Malaysia?

Of course, the number one reason anybody goes abroad for surgery is to save on costs: that is the whole point of medical tourism.

However, it's worth noting that Malaysia is a great destination for a holiday and is also home to some world-class medical facilities open to international patients that offer procedures at affordable rates. These are all good reasons to go to Malaysia (aside from those savings, which we outline a little further down).

It's possible to combine a holiday with a cosmetic surgery procedure and also have a good time in a new place, although do bear in mind that you will need to get any sightseeing and holiday activities out of the way before surgery (and especially with a hair transplant, ensure you stay out of that hot Malaysian sun). 

Most major airlines fly to Malaysia and you may even be able to get a good deal on airfares if you book in advance. You can have an amazing time in Malaysia, enjoying the best of the historic and cultural sites, the food and the reasonable shopping there. You can explore the country before your surgical procedure and then recuperate in luxury before flying back home.

Why Should I Book My Hair Transplant with medical Departures?

When undergoing surgery of any type for the purposes of looking better, the quality of the end result is hugely important. Without using a trustworthy third-party resource, how can you be sure that you are going to the right place, have qualified doctors and that the amenities at the hospital or clinic meet your expectations? And what about your surgeon's experience and qualifications? Do they have affiliations or memberships with professional organizations, like the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery?

That is where Medical Departures comes in. We do your homework for you. We make sure that the clinics and hospitals on our list meet our standards - checking qualifications, professional memberships and legal/criminal records. 

How Long Does a Hair Transplant Take and What Is the Recovery Period?

There are different methods of removing the hair from your scalp. Either the skin is removed in strips or small grafts are taken out. These are then transplanted into the parts of the scalp where there is no hair. You will be administered local anesthetic during the procedure and have bandages after that for a day or two. You will also have to follow certain restrictions regarding how to take care of your scalp and hair post-surgery, as well as take painkillers and antibiotics for a few days. The procedure can take two to eight hours, depending on how much area the surgeon needs to cover at one time.

The two main types are follicular unit transplant (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). During FUT, strips of skin are incised and then cut into smaller parts and transplanted. In FUE individual or few hairs are removed at a time. This is more time consuming and is useful for minor hair loss or thinning hair. FUE also does not need sutures so healing time is faster. In any case, you will lose the transplanted hair and it will grow back in three to five months.

New machines used during hair transplant surgery virtually guarantee very little pain, quicker healing times and no visible scarring. It is a minimally invasive surgery as well, all the more reason to opt for hair transplant surgery if you are distressed by hair loss.

How Much Can I Save on Hair Transplant Surgery in Malaysia Compared to Back Home?

You have to pay a lot of money in most developed countries, like Australia, as hair transplant surgery can cost between AUD 2,000 to AUD 25,000. If you have thinning hair or a small hair patch, you may get away with paying at the lower end of the scale but for large patches or baldness, you will inevitably pay a lot more.

In Australia you can expect to pay AUD 2,000 to AUD 25,000 for hair transplant surgery. In Malaysia you will pay between AUD 2-3 per hair and AUD 4 per graft that consists of 4-7 hairs.

Costs will obviously vary and depend on the number of hairs or grafts you need, but savings normally equate to thousands of dollars, even after factoring the price of your airfares and accommodation.
