Liposuction in Johor Bahru is just one of the numerous procedures that medical tourists undergo in this Southern Malaysian city every year. Discover Medical Departures' quality-checked, affordable clinics and get rid of that wobbly, stubborn fat forever.
Effective on many areas of the body, from tums to bums and back to arms – you can even get it on your face and neck. Sometimes no amount of dieting and exercise can budge that bulge – and these cases, liposuction can be the ideal solution.
Johor Bahru is Malaysia’s second-largest city. Located in the south of the country, it's only a 10-minute train ride away from Singapore’s international airport. This close proximity makes it a particularly popular destination for anyone visiting from Singapore – coupled with the low prices, which are a marked contrast to the prices charged in Australia, Europe and the US.
Johor Bahru is a modern city bustling with all the excitement any big city brings. There’s a great selection of restaurants, hotels, shopping and other entertainment and recreational facilities, as well as the waterfront at Danga Bay – which boasts 25 kilometers of attractions, including golf courses, and paintballing.
You might not feel up to much after your surgery, but you can certainly take advantage of what’s on offer beforehand.
The country is well connected and you don’t have to go far to find beaches, or perhaps you’d like to experience more of Malaysia – there’s lots more to it, including UNESCO World heritage sites and the extraordinary biodiversity that calls Malaysia home.
Medical travelers can expect excellent healthcare facilities. Modern, hygienic hospitals and clinics, staffed by trained, fully-qualified medics and English-speaking staff. Medical tourism is fully supported by the government that ensures both the quality of the services, as well as its promotion.
At Medical Departures, we offer patients added peace-of-mind with our background checks. These include legal and/or criminal records, as well as professional qualifications & memberships and onsite visits. We also collate real patient reviews that are published on our site, along with high-definition photos and other useful information.
Depending on the size of the area you are having treated, liposuction takes around 45 minutes to an hour to carry out.
Techniques, including ultrasound or saline solution, are used to turn the fat into liquid, which can then be suctioned out through a thin tube inserted through a small incision.
You are likely to feel some soreness after the procedure and you may have to wear compression garments, depending on your doctor's advice. Sometimes drainage tubes are inserted to drain fluid away from the wound area. Bruising and swelling usually starts to subside after a week, and you should start to feel much better then and find your day-to-day activities much easier to manage.
You should take things easy over the course of the following weeks, but should be able to recommence vigorous or strenuous activities after six weeks. Do also remember that you'll be limited to your hotel (or close proximity to it) during the days immediately following your surgery.
Liposuction in Johor Bahru can cost as much as 50% less than it does in Australia, as well as other developed nations like the UK and US.
