Find out how you can save up to 75% in Malaysia's capital of Kuala Lumpur when getting a nose job
First, the price (the main driving force behind most medical travel) is more affordable in Kuala Lumpur, allowing you the chance to save several thousand dollars at one of our quality-checked clinics.
It's also possible to enjoy a memorable holiday in Malaysia while you are there. The capital boasts a range of exciting attractions, as well as great shopping options, sumptuous food and nearby destinations that make great day trips out of the city, such as the Genting or Cameron Highlands.
The nature lover, too, will find lots to see and do here, thanks to the parks, gardens and nature reserves either in town or a short drive away. KL also has big-city attractions including the stunning Petronas Towers and a vibrant nightlife—even on Sundays and other holidays. KL has good public transport, too, and you don’t need a visa for Malaysia if you reside in Australia or countless other countries.
While you can check numerous sites that you come across when searching online, it is always difficult to know how truthful their claims are regarding the work they do and credentials they might have. If you are actively considering plastic surgery, it isn't worth taking a chance with a random site advertising a facility as it may not have associations with international organizations, such as the Joint Commission International.
If you book through Medical Departures, you can rest assured knowing that we take the utmost care and have your best interests at heart. That is why we thoroughly check all the clinics and hospitals we list on our site. We investigate the qualifications, experience and certifications of the doctors working there, the training of the staff, the amenities and ambiance—and whether English is spoken by staff and specialists.
In general, the procedure varies between one and three hours.
The time taken for nose reshaping surgery depends on the extent of work required; it also depends on whether the surgery is open or closed; carried out under local or general anaesthesia and other factors.
Depending on how much work is required for your rhinoplasty surgery, you can pay between AUD 1,000 and AUD 4,000 for your nose job in Kuala Lumpur.
In comparison, in Australia, you can expect to pay between AUD 7,000 and AUD 20,000 for similar surgery.
