Get rid of a flabby, sagging midriff and enjoy a holiday at the same time. How? With a tummy tuck in Johor Bahru – Malaysia’s second largest city.
Pregnancy, weight gain/weight loss can all stretch the abdomen, but the problem is that even with exercise this stretched skin just won’t ping back – and you can be left with an unsightly ‘apron’ of loose skin. A tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty to give it the medical term) can rid you of this loose skin giving your abdomen that flatter, smoother look back.
Johor Bahru is a modern city, served by an international airport, and, if you want to do a spot of traveling in the region, is well connected to the rest of Malaysia, as well as neighbouring countries Singapore and Indonesia.
Prices are competitive, an important consideration for most medical tourists, but this not detrimental to its healthcare services. On the contrary, medical tourism services are of an exceptionally high standard and regulated by the Malaysian Ministry of Health, ensuring good quality for medical tourists.
Medical Departures also takes quality standards seriously which is why we do our own background checks that include legal and criminal records, doctor qualifications and professional memberships. We also do onsite visits and publish real patient reviews and clinic photos on our website – all freely available for you to browse and make your own decisions.
Most tummy tucks take an average of 2 hours, but it may be more, or it may be less – it depends on how much tissue needs removing.
Tummy tucks are a relatively straightforward procedure, but there are a number of different techniques which may be used. Sometimes this is down to your surgeon’s preference as much as to your own particular circumstances. Any incisions are usually made where the resultant scar will be inconspicuous – i.e. it can usually be hidden with bikini bottoms.
The exact length of the tummy tuck surgery will depend on how much skin you have removed, but it should take anything between 1 and 3 hours.
There are also different techniques used during the surgery, and the technique used may be down to your surgeon’s personal preferences as much as to your circumstances. The surgeon will try and hide incisions in inconspicuous places, for example, where the scars can be hidden under clothing, like bikini bottoms.
It may take a couple of weeks after surgery before you are back in the swing of things – you will be surprised at just how much you use your abdominal muscles! Immediately after surgery you will feel tender and bruised. You may have to wear a compression garment to ease swelling and wound drains may be inserted to remove fluid away from the incision site.
It could be a number of weeks before you feel able to get back to your everyday routine, but it will be more than 6 weeks before you can partake in strenuous activities.
Tummy tucks generally cost around 50% less in Johor Bahru compared to Australia.
