If you’re looking for an alternative option to home for plastic surgery, then Johor Bahru may just fit the bill.
Also known as rhinoplasty surgery, here are 4 top reasons to head to Johor Bahru for a nose job:
1) It's Accessible
Travellers can fly direct to either Johor Bharu’s Senai International Airport or Singapore’s Changi Airport, which receives flights from all corners of the world every day. From here, you can simply drive or get a taxi over the causeway into Malaysia, with Johor Bahru city center just a few kilometres away.
2) The Prices Are Low
Plastic surgery is considerably less expensive in Malaysia due to the lower cost of living. Aussies, Kiwis, British, Irish, Americans and Canadians will find prices to be between 50% and 70% less at our range of verified clinics and hospitals in Johor Bahru.
3) You Can Expect a High Standard of Care
The healthcare facilities in Malaysia we have partnered with are modern and all adhere to international health and safety standards. As you can also see on our site, doctors and surgeons have often trained overseas and have qualifications on par with their counterparts in the West.
4) The Region Is Great for Tourists
Johor Bahru is a contemporary city, with top-class hotels, numerous restaurants, extensive shopping and other recreational facilities to suit all tastes. Many visitors choose to stay just over the water in Singapore, which boasts some of the most spectacular attractions in Southeast Asia, and generally more choice when it comes to dining, shopping, nightlife and accommodation options.
Each nose job is as individual as you are–and the length of time of the procedure varies depending on the extent the work. The procedure can take from just an hour to around five. Your surgeon will be able to give you a better understanding once you have consulted and agreed upon a treatment plan..
For the procedure, after the anaesthesia of choice has been administered, incisions are made either inside the nose ("closed" technique) or along the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils ("open" technique). It's through these incisions that the surgeon is able to reshape the nose, which may involve removing bone or cartilage or using a cartilage graft (normally taken from the septum).

Your nose will feel uncomfortable after surgery; your nostrils may be packed with gauze and you may have nasal splints in place. As well as feeling bruised you will have to breathe through your mouth until the gauze is removed, which may add to your discomfort.
Bruising and swelling will make the nose and surrounding areas tender. The dressings are removed anything between four days and 10 days after surgery. Swelling and bruising will subside gradually but it may be three weeks before you can engage in day-to-day activities, and up to six weeks before you can do contact sports or strenuous lifting.
A nose job will generally cost at least 50% less in Johor Bahru compared with Australia.
