What Should I Consider Before Booking My Rhinoplasty in Johor Bahru?

Doing your own research to ensure you book in with a quality surgeon and clinic is important for any type of surgery, especially one that involves a prominent facial feature like your nose. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to help you come to a decision: any top surgeon should be more than happy to answer and provide you with the information you want.

So, what sort of information should you be seeking? Below are some suggestions: 

  • Patients often ask for photos of work done on previous patients–or even ask to be put in touch with them. 
  • You want to ask if they are members of a professional organization, like the Rhinoplasty Society. 

  • Ask how many procedures they’ve carried out.

  • You should also take into consideration the pros and cons of the destination, which in this case is the up-and-coming Malaysian city of Johor Bahru. While not exactly known as a tropical paradise, the city is particularly easy to reach, full of interesting cultural sights and just a short drive across the border from Singapore, the spectacular Lion City. Plus, it’s worth looking into Malaysia’s overall healthcare system and how well it scores on a global level. 

Medical Departures carries out its own background checks and publishes a wealth of information so you can find answers to all these questions. For example: 

  • We visit clinics, uploading clinic photos on our site so you can get an idea of how things look. 

  • We check legal and criminal records, gather patient testimonials and check doctor qualifications, which you are free to review on our site at no cost. 

  • We visit and publish country and city guides so you can learn all about your destinations—gaining an understanding its healthcare facilities and what to expect when you’re there. 

Although there is no foolproof way of ever predicting whether your surgery will be 100% effective, ensuring the credentials of your doctor and clinic stack up is a good start. Our Customer Care team can help you along the way; Medical Departures has booked more than 100,000 appointments over the past ten years.
