Johor Bahru is fast becoming one of Malaysia’s economic hubs, serving business travelers, as well as tourists. It is only a 10-15 minute journey across the Johor Straits into Singapore, and so many Singaporeans frequently travel here to take advantage of the lower prices here.
The city is booming, with lots of development and it offers all visitors top-quality accommodation options, plenty of restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities, as well as excellent healthcare facilities – a growing area in terms of medical tourists, particularly those seeking plastic surgery.
Malaysia is one of the top destinations in Asia for global health travelers, and it’s not hard to see why. The country is safe and English is spoken widely. The Malaysian government are investing heavily in medical tourism and so visitors will find modern top-notch clinics and hospitals, staffed by doctors who are well skilled and qualified. Visitors from Australia, the US and the UK will find their care here to be on a par with any they’d receive at home – with one major difference – the price! Prices are incredibly low here, and not because services are lower quality, but simply because the cost of living is less.
The only problem with going abroad is not knowing what you are getting before you book. We have taken this element away as we provide the quality-control that you would otherwise miss if you just booked on your own. When you check our listings you can see clinic photos, compare prices, read real patient testimonials and check clinic and doctor credentials, such as whether the clinic is signed up to professional organizations, such as the International Standards Organization. This helps you to get a better picture, and enable you to make an informed judgement before you book.
A lip enhancement can help to add volume to lips if genetically, you weren’t blessed with the full lips you’d like, or if you have lost fullness in them as you’ve aged.
It is worth bearing in mind that if you are going for a permanent solution that it is just that – permanent. Remember that fashions change, as well as your own mind, and you may not feel so happy with the change you made to yourself 10 or 20 years down the line.
There are, of course, temporary solutions which may be a better option if you are worried about making a permanent change.
The solutions available are dependent upon what you want to achieve. Most of the lip enhancement procedures add volume, but there are one or two that can actually change the shape of your lips too.
Dermal fillers, like Juvederm or Restylane, which are used to minimize facial wrinkles, can also be used to add volume to the lips. They are very popular, mainly because they are quick, offer immediate results and are temporary.
Another way to add volume is with a fat injection. This can be done if you are having liposuction elsewhere, and some of the removed fat can be processed and reinjected into your lips.
There are a number of surgeries, including dermal grafts, where fat grafts are taken from elsewhere and positioned under the lip through incisions made inside the mouth; lip lifts – where an the lip is lifted by making an incision under the nose and pulling the skin upwards; vermillion advancement – where the lips are enlarged by removing a thin strip of skin from all around the coloured part of the lips and then pulling the lips out to the remaining skin and suturing in place and lip implants – where synthetic or natural implants are inserted through incisions made in the corner of the mouth.
Most people have very little downtime, particular for the injection treatments. Obviously, surgery may require a little more downtime, but most people’s discomfort has eased enough after a day or two for them to carry on with their everyday activities.
Obviously, the price of lip enhancement procedures will vary, depending on what you have done exactly, but average savings of around 50% are achievable.
