Tummy Tuck in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Malaysia

Last fact-checked: 12 November 2020

By undergoing a tummy tuck in Malaysia, you can tighten your stomach, remove loose and flabby skin and even reduce stretch marks. What's more, you'll be saving a significant amount of money compared to having the procedure back home.

What Should I Know About Tummy Tucks?

Abdominoplasty, as it is medically called, is suitable for both men and women, though more women than men have this surgery. It is major surgery so you have to make sure that you really need it, i.e., you've already tried diet and exercise but to little avail. 

A tummy tuck will not help you reduce the fat around your abdomen unless you combine it with liposuction to remove the fat. It is used for:

  • Excess skin or drooping skin–this can happen due to weight loss or post-pregnancy.
  • Loss of muscle tone–childbirth can result in loss of muscle tone.
  • Better contour–flab around the stomach can make you look pregnant or have a paunch, even if you are otherwise slim.
  • Removal of stretch marks–if the marks are on the skin that is to be cut (you need to talk to the doctor about this).

Those who have had tummy tuck surgery are able to wear swimsuits and bikinis confidently, fit into a tight pair of jeans and generally have a slimmer silhouette.

Why Have a Tummy Tuck in Malaysia?

Tummy tuck surgery is expensive and, as an aesthetic surgery performed purely make you look (and feel) good, it likely won't be covered by your insurance or national health service. It is a long and complex procedure and can be unaffordable for many people living in countries like Australia, New Zealand, the UK or the US. Depending on where you are in the world, flying to Malaysia to have it done can save you money even when factoring in travel costs.

As an added benefit, you'll enjoy the opportunity (before your surgery date) to explore this exotic country, known for its natural beauty, cultural and historic attractions, nightlife, shopping and dining options.

If you have apprehensions about having the surgery abroad, lay them to rest. The doctors and hospitals in Malaysia are excellent. The hospitals are usually multidisciplinary or you can visit a specialized clinic for plastic surgery. The doctors listed on our site are well qualified and often have affiliations or accreditations from Western institutions. 

Why Can’t You Book on Your Own for Abdominoplasty?

Technically you can, but you may be running a risk. Our team has a great deal of experience in the medical tourism field and we only list hospitals and clinics that meet our standards and are equipped to serve the international patient. We physically check out the places for ourselves, making sure that the doctors are qualified and accredited and the amenities in the place are suitable for foreign medical tourists. We also collect real patient reviews and publish them no matter what they say about their overall experience.

This process means that you have an added element of safety and trust when you book through us.

How Long Does Tummy Tuck Surgery Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

Abdominoplasty can be carried out in a number of different ways. You may undergo a partial or mini tummy tuck where only the part below the navel is done. You can also opt for a major abdominoplasty where the whole abdomen is redone. You can have it with or without liposuction to remove fat deposits. Consult with the surgeon as to what is right for you and in line with your expectations.

The surgery can take between one and five hours–the more procedures required, the more time it will take. This surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia so you will need to spend at least one night in your chosen hospital or clinic in Malaysia, with the following days blocked out for recovery back at your hotel. 

For a full tummy tuck, you will need to take at least two weeks off from work. You will need to wear compression garments for five to seven days. It can take up to a week before you are able to stand up straight. It may take up to three weeks for you to go back to work. You can estimate about a month to six weeks for recovery though complete recovery will take much longer.

What Is the Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery?

In Australia, for example, complete abdominoplasty surgery can cost upwards of AUD 14,000. A mini procedure can cost upwards of AUD 6,000.

In Malaysia, the surgery costs a fraction of this price, averaging between AUD 2,000 and AUD 3,000.
