Tummy Tuck in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 14 March 2020

A tummy tuck in Kuala Lumpur will give you a flat tummy for less. Find out where and how to book in the Malaysian capital with Medical Departures.

Is a Tummy Tuck for Me?

Your tummy may stretch and sag after pregnancy, childbirth, weight gain and weight loss. Once the skin has stretched, it may not become taut again despite your best efforts including diet and exercise. If this sounds like you, don't despair. A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, can fix it - with savings of thousands to be made in KL.

While it's women who most commonly undergo this cosmetic surgery, men can also benefit from abdominoplasty. A paunch or beer belly can be flattened by this surgical procedure if diet and hitting the gym aren't helping. Men who have lost a great deal of weight may also find it difficult to get rid of excess skin and fat around the abdomen and tummy tuck surgery is the only answer to this.

Why Consider a Tummy Tuck in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur is a premier medical tourist destination thanks to its many world-class hospitals and clinics and highly-trained plastic surgeons that offer surgery at affordable rates. It's possible to go for a holiday in Kuala Lumpur and undergo cosmetic surgery (after you've got your sightseeing out of the way; in fact, the Malaysian capital has numerous tourist attractions and showcases some of the best food in Asia, since its population consists largely of Malays, Chinese and Indians.

You can see all the sights in the city and around before your surgery and then recuperate post-surgery for some time until you are in a position to travel back. This way, you get a break from your daily routine and when you stay in a hotel, you are away from your everyday chores and are well taken care of.

Many nationalities, including Australians, don’t need a formal visa to go to Malaysia; you simply fill out a form once you've touched down (visa on arrival) and you'll be able to stay for up to three months.

Why Can't I Just Book on My Own for Tummy Tuck Surgery?

While straightforward, a tummy tuck is considered a serious surgery; there are always risks associated with any surgery, and these can be mitigated by finding a facility and surgeon you can trust. Booking through just any site will not put you in a position where you are able to properly judge the background of the place or check for professional associations with organisations, such as the Joint Commission International.

When you book through Medical Departures, you have a safety net in place. We carry out a thorough investigation, covering all aspects of medical treatment. We make sure that the doctors are well-trained, accredited and experienced, that the staff is amenable and that the ambience of the place is good. We also carry out post surgery patient interviews when required to ascertain that everything is above board.

What Does Tummy Tuck Surgery Involve, How Long Does it Take and What Is the Recovery Period?

An initial consultation with your chosen surgeon will help you determine what technique is right for you depending on how you look and what you want to achieve. Different kinds of tummy tuck procedures take varying times. 

  • If you have a full abdominoplasty along with liposuction, surgery will obviously take much longer than a mini tummy tuck procedure without liposuction. 
  • A simple mini or complete tummy tuck procedure can make your stretched skin taut, but will not remove fat unless liposuction is involved.
  • A mini tummy tuck only focuses below the navel, while a complete surgery will take care of the entire abdominal area and entail repositioning of the navel as well.
  • In general, surgery can take between two and five hours.

Recovery time varies, but you will conservatively need to take at least a couple of weeks off from work - or at least plan to work from home for some time. Your body will take around six weeks to recover up to a point where you can resume most of your daily activities and you will need to avoid strenuous activity. You will also have to take great care of your skin post-surgery and make sure you follow medical advice regarding dressings and bandaging.

What Is the Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery in Kuala Lumpur?

In Kuala Lumpur, the surgery is very affordable with prices starting at just AUD 2,000 to AUD 3,000 only.

Similar surgery in Australia can cost between AUD 6,000 and AUD 14,000. Cost does vary depending on how much work is required for the tummy tuck.

Please note: These are estimated prices at the time of writing. Check out updated prices, as well as photos, surgeon profiles, patient testimonials and more at these leading medical facilities in Kuala Lumpur for tummy tucks:
