We do understand that price is an important consideration for plastic surgery. Many Malaysians have gone for 'cheap plastic surgery' procedure locally and abroad. But a growing number of them have gone to see 'unqualified doctors' and have ended up with serious infections, asymmetry and botched results. The most vulnerable demographic is the 18-26 year old women seeking plastic surgery. Bombarded with misinformation about ethical plastic surgery, and the peer pressure for enhancing their looks; unqualified doctors and so-called professionals have taken advantage of their naivety and lack of guidance.

It's advisable that you just don't look for the cheapest deal as there are aesthetics guidelines in Malaysia that define who, what and where plastic surgery procedures can be and cannot be done in Malaysia.

Liposuction Prices in Malaysia

Average Starting Price (2016): MYR 7,833 (USD 2,001)

Malaysia - MYR 12,600 (USD 3,000) per region

MYR 4,500 - MYR 5,500 (USD 1,155 - 1,400) (per zone)

Notes: You are probably wondering why there is such a wide range in liposuction pricing. You will need to understand that the pricing depends on multiple factors. Here are some major factors that determine the price:
  • General Anesthesia (GA) or Local Anesthesia (LA): If the liposuction procedure involves a large area or requires a substantial amount of fat removal, it has to be done under GA. For GA, another medical specialist, an anesthesiologist/anesthetist must be present and this translates to another professional cost for you. Therefore, the price for liposuction under GA will be higher than LA. 
  • OT (operation theatre) or Clinic: Some minor invasive procedures are done in the clinic but the air in the clinic is not sterile enough for an invasive procedure like liposuction. The risk of infection is higher in the clinic as compared with performing it in operation theatre. According to guidelines, liposuction needs to be done in either a medical centre or ambulatory care centre with well equipped operation theatre. Some doctors take the risk of doing it in the clinic so that the cost is lower.
  • Area and amount: The bigger the area and the more number of areas to be treated, the higher will be the cost. The higher amount of fat to be removed, the higher will be the cost.
  • Hospital fee: Similar with hotel rooms, hospital room rates vary from hospital to hospital. Check out Private Hospital Room Rates Malaysia.
  • Post surgical complication: In the event of a complication, you may need to prolong your hospital admission or to be admitted again and this will incur additional cost. For international customers, we do recommend that you cover yourself with a travel insurance that will cover you in the event of a post-surgical complication.

Double eyelid surgery (Incisional)
Most people undergo double eyelid surgery for beauty purposes, but this procedure is also popular amongst older people whose vision is disrupted when the skin from their upper eyelid sags to forms a hood as a result of ageing.
During the one-hour procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and fats and tucks it in to create a fold, forming the double eyelids.
MYR 3,500 – MYR 4,000

Eye bag removal
Eye bags refer to the swelling of the tissues around the eyes. They are commonly caused by the thinning of the skin that will reveal the existing fats and muscle around the eye. Factors such as lack of sleep, tobacco, alcohol and ageing contribute to the appearance of eye bags.
An eye bag removal surgery can reduce the puffiness and dark circles, making you look younger, refreshed and alert.
The surgery involves the removal of excess fat from the lower eyelid to reinforce the surrounding muscles and tendons around the transconjuctival and rejuvenate the skin. It can be done through the outer or inner eyelid, depending on your surgeon’s recommendation. Scarring is zero if the surgery is done through the inner eyelid.
Eye Bag Surgery Cost:
MYR 3,500 – MYR 5,000
A unique feature to Asian eyelids is the epicanthic folds, the skin fold at the inner corner of your eye that gives a characteristic slit. Epicanthoplasty is a procedure that involves the removal of epicanthal folds to make the eyes appear bigger.
The procedure takes less than an hour, where the surgeon shortens the ligament at the corner of the eye to widen eye and then re-drape the excess skin around the inner corner of the eye. There may be some scarring following surgery but they are mainly hidden within the natural folds of the under-eye.

Moving Forward - What Next?

These rates above are only a guideline and the actual costs may vary depending on where your procedure is done (hospitals have additional charges of up to 20-50%, while aesthetic centres in urban areas are more costly than suburban areas).

While the most expensive surgeon is not necessarily "the best", there may be significant compelling reasons for a surgeon to charge the lowest fees in town. If "shopping" by phone for the "best deal" in plastic surgery, beware of "low-balling". Make sure you know what you are quoted; a surgeon’s fee vs. the TOTAL fee for the procedure. The total fee is higher since it would include the surgeon’s fee, the operating room cost, the anesthesia fee and any special charges (such as implants or laser fees) and also the necessary follow up visit/s. In general, the costs for each procedure are a general range for the surgeon's fee, the hospital / surgical center facility fee, and the fee for the anesthetist or anesthesiologist. Be aware that operations whose extent and duration is based on the size of the patient (such as liposuction) cannot realistically be quoted on the phone without an examination.
