Liposuction in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Kuala Lumpur

Get rid of stubborn, hard to remove fat with liposuction in Kuala Lumpur. Fat pockets, whether they are love handles or in the abdomen, hips, thighs or upper arms are very difficult to dislodge by exercise or diet. You may be following a diet and exercise regimen for long and not get the results you want. A simple solution is liposuction, which is a safe and popular procedure to physically remove excess fat from your body.

Also called lipoplasty this procedure gives your body better and shapelier contours, so that you wear the clothes you want without feeling uncomfortable with your body. Basically the extra fat is vacuumed out of your body through small incisions – this actually results in fat and weight loss. Over time, the place from where the fat is removed flattens out and you get the contours you want.

Why should you get liposuction done in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur is a major tourist destination, favored by tourists worldwide. Millions of people visit KL, as it is popularly called, for its tourist attractions, sightseeing, food and shopping, which is very different from what is available in the western world. There are numerous temples of different faiths, natural parks, gardens and zoos, forest reserves, iconic towers, huge shopping malls and all that you look for in a holiday spot.

What’s more as an Australian resident, you don’t require a visa to enter Malaysia – you can just book and fly out with one of the many major airlines that fly into KL. You need have no apprehensions regarding the quality of medical care that you get in KL either, since it is a premier medical tourist destination and has state of the art medical facilities. Unless you have a minor procedure that you require, it is best to enjoy your holiday prior to the surgery as you will need to rest after that.

Why can’t you book on your own?

It would seem quite easy to book via the internet, but booking a cosmetic surgery is not as easy as online shopping for products or booking a flight or hotel as surgery is a serious procedure and not without risks. You have no way of verifying the antecedents of a place, the training of the doctors, professional affiliations with organisations such as the Joint Commission International, or how comfortable you will feel with them.

When you book through Medical Departures you are certain that we have conducted all the investigations necessary before listing a place on our website. We check out the training, experience, qualifications and accreditations of the doctors, the staff and the facilities at the hospitals and clinics. We also conduct post surgery patient interviews to make sure that they had a good experience. Booking through Medical Departures means that you are free of any apprehensions you may have regarding these aspects.

What is the time taken for liposuction and how much time does it take to recover?

The time taken will actually depend on how much work you are getting done – if you are getting fat removed from many areas of your body it can take several hours, for instance. For major work, liposuction is done under general anesthesia, but for minor lipo only local anesthesia may be required. You may need to stay in hospital overnight for large procedures, just so that you can be better monitored.

Post surgery you will be tightly bandaged and after major lipo you will need to wear compression garments for some time. You may need to take time off from work for a week or two. Bruising, swelling and other signs may take several weeks to clear up and the body contouring results can take some months to be visible.

What is the cost of liposuction in Kuala Lumpur?

When you get surgery done to look better it is not covered by any insurance. Out of pocket expenses for you in Australia can be between AUD 3,000 and AUD 15,000 (depending on how much work you want and whether you need to stay overnight or not). In Kuala Lumpur, you pay a fraction of the price and liposuction procedures range from AUD 1,500 to AUD 4,000.
