Liposuction Prices and Reviews in Malaysia 2018: A Practical Unbiased Guide

Liposuction Malaysia Cost
If you are looking for liposuction related information and liposuction prices in KL (Kuala Lumpur) or Malaysia, you are in the right place. You have most likely browsed through various websites and hopefully, have shortlisted a few clinics or centres. However, it’s clear that some of these sites are not aware of the local regulations and the Guidelines on Aesthetic Medical Practice for Registered Medical Practitioners. For liposuction procedures in Malaysia, the guidelines define and stipulate who, what and where liposuction can be and cannot be done.
Liposuction Guidelines Malaysia

There are also too many self proclaimed experts out there, but who's to know? That's why the guidelines above were developed, in order to protect innocent consumers. In order to verify whether your doctor is licensed to do cosmetic surgery in Malaysia, you can check whether they have a LCP Chapter 3 license over at the National Registry Of Registered Medical Practitioners (RMP) With LCP Chapter 3.

Liposuction in Malaysia related information is all over on the internet. However, many sites are providing 'no meat on the bone' and confusing content. While some of the sites do provide the needed information; it's unfortunately not comprehensive enough to assist you in making the right informed decision.

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 will influence 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 the risk in an operation theatre. According to guidelines, liposuction needs to be done in either a licensed medical centre or an ambulatory care centre (ACC) with well equipped operation theatre. Some doctors might 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.

#2. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Cost Malaysia

You may need to understand the difference between liposuction and tummy tuck so that you have better clarity of what you paying for. 
Liposuction (whatever method is used) primarily removes fat from below the skin surface and provides a moderate amount of skin tightening due to scar contracture.

A tummy tuck does several things:

  • Removes abdominal skin that is in excess, and resets the tone to the remaining skin
  • Removes some fat from the abdomen
  • Redistributes skin and fat from the upper abdomen to the lower, effectively thinning the abdominal wall skin/fat thickness
  • Tightens the abdominal wall musculature, which both flattens the stomach from the side view as well as pulling in the waist to improve the "hour glass" shape
Very simply, the tummy tuck reverses the changes caused by childbearing, and is typically the appropriate operation for mothers or individuals who have undergone significant weight fluctuation. Liposuction is for fat contouring in individuals who have resistant areas of localised fat and also have good skin tone. If skin tone is bad (lax, or with stretch marks), the results from liposuction may be disappointing.

Cool Lipo on Hips, Thighs and Buttocks - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

31 Jan 2014
I knew that my consultation was the same day and that at any stage I could back out. So I went in for my consultation and the doctor had already seen my photos and suggested hips, thighs and buttocks. I have a very small waist and this tends to make my lower half look a lot bigger than what it is. I am a very small build so generally people think why am I doing this but really I just want to be able to fit standard clothing nicely. I will post some before photos so you can see what I mean. I am 5'4" and weighed (before the procedure) 47 kilos...

23 Feb 2014 (after 4 weeks)
Back at the gym now. Taking it slowly though. A quick 5km walk every second day on top,of my dog walking I do every day. My measurements are definitely changing and I'm looking a lot better in jeans.

he did in a hospital... around... rm5k... he took out i think 2 LITRES of fluids, fats + blood...

oh and for your information, he is not lazy not willing to do exercise... in fact, he exercises A LOT!! he plays basketball FEW TIMES A DAY... and sweat until everything wet, and VERY SMELLY!! *i usually stay VERY VERY far from him after his basketball session* but his fats still there...
sometimes, I THINK, exercise is NOT the ONLY WAY...

very true about the self esteem part, he used to say that he's ugly with his fats, cant KAO LUI... and dowan to go out because he looked ugly *yes, my brother sounds like a GIRL, super HIAO* so he BUGGED my mom, and now he has got a GF now... not sure it's a good thing or a bad thing though...

Lipo in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Vaser Liposuction Review

Jul 3, 2011

Hi guys, I researched and contemplated for about 4 years and now have actually done it!!!

Thought I'd post this for those of you like me. I am an Australia who has come up to KL to see a world renowned surgeon with expertise in this field.

For years I attended cycle classes and body pump - in fact at stages I have been an exercise addict. If I couldn't make the gym it was close to the world ending. Despite this, and costly personal trainers,I could not achieve the results I wanted and rid the line of fat on my inner thigh, saddlebags on the outer and back of hips. In fact exercise just developed the muscle underneath, making the fat pocket pop out more. Diet made my face look haggard and achieved comments of concern from others as to whether I was well.

Has lipo fixed it? Absolutely! I couldn't be happier. I had 3 1/2 litres removed (wanted more but the surgeon said that was max for me). In the end he took it off my legs, hips and stomach (the latter to allow my muscle tone to show through)...

My word of advice, though, research your surgeon well. You pay a little more for expertise and excellence that is well worth it in the end. (Believe it or not I came here because I couldn't find anybody I was comfortable with in my Aussie state) Good luck. Will try to post photos later.

#5. Liposuction Overview Video

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. Other similar or closely related jargons include lipoplasty, smart lipo, fat modeling, liposculpture, suction lipectomy, suction-assisted fat removal, lipo, tummy tuck, abdominoplasty etc.

Liposuction is the fastest way for one to lose stubborn and unwanted fat from the arms, abdomen, back, thighs and buttocks – areas which may not respond quickly enough to traditional weight-loss methods of diet and exercise.



#6. Confused About All the Different Types of Liposuction?


"I'm confused on all the different names for Liposuction. Which one is the right one and how will I know I am getting what I am supposed to get?"

To read the answers provided by 7 medical doctors:
https://www.realself.com/question/confused-names-liposuction


Here is the summary:

We are in an era of intensive marketing, inflated claims, and frankly a lot of misinformation about liposuction so you are not alone in being confused. One thing you will hear consistently from the docs on RealSelf is that it is more important to choose your surgeon than to base your decision on technology or brand-name. That said, here are a few pointers: All forms of liposuction use what is called a "wet" technique, in which the fat to be removed is injected with a dilute numbing solution. If that is the only anesthesia used, it may be called "tumescent" technique, but that is an anesthesia method, not a different lipo method...

Richard Baxter, MD

Tumescent liposuction is the gold standard for surgical fat removal and has a long safety record. While the internet is a wonderful source of information, it can also cause a lot of confusion because so many people are trying to call attention to themselves through innovative marketing techniques and rebranding. Liposuction, liposculpture, Vaser 4d – all of these are variations on tumescent liposuction...

Mitchel P. Goldman, MD

The confusion about types of liposuction comes from companies hyping their machines. So far there is no evidence that one device is better than another. What is clear, however, is that there is a great deal of difference between the results obtained by highly experience liposuction surgeons and those who dabble in this procedure.

William P. Coleman III, MD
