Rhinoplasty in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in Malaysia

Last fact-checked: 16 January 2020

Rhinoplasty in Malaysia is a popular choice for international patients who want to correct the size or shape of their nose without spending a fortune. Discover how you can find and book your surgery in Malaysia with the help of Medical Departures and save over 70%. 

What Is Rhinoplasty—and Why Do People Have it? 

More commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty can be carried out for a number of reasons. For instance, it may be that you have a physical problem caused by the shape or size of your nose—but the most common reason patients opt for this surgery is to enhance their looks. 

On an aesthetic level, this “enhancement” is subjective and usually differs in relation to where you are in the world. For instance, Europeans who are typically known to have longer noses may seek a reduction, while Asians with more petite noses and wider nostrils generally go for lengthening procedures.

Your nose may be:

  • Crooked

  • Asymmetrical

  • Too large or too small

  • Hooked with a dorsal hump

All of these issues can be addressed by rhinoplasty, giving you the kind of nose that suits your face, boosting your confidence at the same time.

Why Undergo Rhinoplasty in Malaysia?

Malaysia is a great place to visit even as a normal tourist. Home to diverse, exotic landscapes, this Southeast Asian country is also known for its historic and cultural attractions, including museums, vast shopping malls and markets, exciting nightlife and delicious cuisine. 

Visitors can explore its natural beauty, which comes in the form of forests and reserves, jungles, deserted beaches and tropical islands, and pretty highland areas with much cooler temperatures. Having a nose job in Malaysia presents a great opportunity to enjoy a holiday before your surgery and then recuperate in luxurious, comfortable surroundings before you fly home.

The country is also a premier medical tourism destination. It has excellent hospitals and clinics in different areas and the doctors are well qualified; in fact, many have accreditations from western universities and will have done part of their training overseas. Many hospitals have state of the art equipment, with well-trained, English-speaking staff. 

Why Shouldn’t I Just Book on My Own?  

There is really nothing to stop you from booking for your procedure on your own. However, while Malaysia does boast plenty of great quality clinics and hospitals, it also has its fair share of facilities that are best avoided. When you do an internet search, you might read about horror stories and botched surgeries—these are the sort of places we’re talking about. 

Something as important as facial surgery should be given a great deal of thought; it’s essential that you find a qualified, licensed surgeon who is a specialist in rhinoplasty. That is why it is best to book through a safe site like Medical Departures.

We check out the clinics and hospitals personally. We make sure that the doctors are well qualified, the staff are professional and the standards of care are on par with what you’d expect at home. We conduct legal/criminal record checks and collect reviews from previous patients, which are published on our site (good or not so good).

How Long Does Rhinoplasty Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

Rhinoplasty surgery may be performed under general or local anesthesia. It can take between one and three hours, depending on the work required. Usually, the incisions are made inside the nostrils before the particular surgical technique is carried out. At times, the incisions may be made outside; this is called open rhinoplasty and generally used if you need a cartilage graft. You will have either hidden scars or the scars will be in such a position where they are barely visible, fading with time. 

While you may go back to your hotel in Malaysia later on the same day, your nose will have to be packed. Complex, longer procedures carried out under general anesthesia may require an overnight stay at the hospital. You will have bruising on your nose and even around your eyes and you will be uncomfortable for three to five days. Once the packing is removed, you should feel better. The splint will be removed after a week; however, swelling and bruising may take several months to clear up. Your new nose can take six months to a year to settle.

How Much Can I Save on Rhinoplasty Compared to Back Home?

Cosmetic surgery that makes you look better is notoriously expensive in developed countries, such as Australia. You can pay between AUD 7,000 and AUD 20,000 (lower rates apply for less work and higher rates are more work and also dependent on the area and kind of clinic you go to). 

In Malaysia, you can pay between just AUD 1,000 and AUD 6,000, a fraction of the cost back home. [Please note that these are approximate, averages prices collated at the time of writing.]
