Rhinoplasty in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Rhinoplasty in Malaysia

Rhinoplasty in Malaysia is a popular procedure and is affordable, too. Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job or nasal refinement surgery, is done for many reasons. It may be that you have an actual physical problem with the shape or size of your nose or you feel that the surgery will enhance your looks. This cosmetic procedure is usually done for aesthetic reasons, though it may also be done to cure problems like a deviated septum or a congenital defect.

A rhinoplasty that changes the shape of your nose will also boost your confidence. Your nose may be
Hooked with a dorsal hump

These problems can be addressed by rhinoplasty, so that you can have the kind of nose that will suit your face.

Why should you have the rhinoplasty in Malaysia?

Malaysia is a great place to visit even as a normal tourist. It is beautiful and exotic and is known for its historic and cultural attractions, its museums, its shopping, its nightlife and its cuisine. It also has natural beauty in the form of forest and reserves, including protected forest areas. You can have a holiday before you surgery and explore the place and you can recuperate there after surgery for as long as you are comfortable.

The country is also a premier medical tourist destination. It has excellent hospitals and clinics in different areas and the doctors are well qualified – many have some accreditations from western universities. The hospitals have state of art equipment, the staff is well-trained and people speak English. So you will have no problems having the cosmetic surgery in Malaysia.

Why can’t you simply book on your own?

There is really nothing to stop you from booking for your procedure on your own. However, when you do an internet search, you also read about horror stories, botched surgeries and more at various forums and consumer web sites. Something as important as facial surgery should be given a great deal of thought and you should try and find a surgeon who is a specialist in rhinoplasty. That is why it is best to go through a safe website like Medical Departures.

We check out the clinics and hospitals personally. We make sure that the doctors are well qualified, that the staff are amiable and the amenities and ambience is good. We do legal/criminal record checks and get reviews from previous patients, which we publish on our site - good or bad.

How long does rhinoplasty take and what is the recovery period?

The rhinoplasty surgery may be done under general or local anesthesia. It can take between one and three hours, depending on the work required. Usually the cuts are made inside the nostrils and then the plastic surgery done. At times, the cuts may be made outside; this is called open rhinoplasty and this is used if you need cartilage graft. You will have either hidden scars or the scars will be placed such that they are barely visible and will fade with time.

While you may go home later on the same day, you will have your nose packed. Complex procedures that take longer and are done under general anesthesia will also mean that you may stay overnight 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 will 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.

What is the cost of rhinoplasty?

Cosmetic surgery that makes you look better is expensive in Australia. You can pay between AUD 7,000 and AUD 20,000 (lower rates for less work and higher rates for a lot of work and dependent on the area and kind of clinic you go to). In Malaysia this surgery is very reasonably priced and you can pay between AUD 650 and AUD 6,000, a fraction of the cost in Australia.
