Tummy Tuck Malaysia

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 tummy tuck procedures in Malaysia, the guidelines define and stipulate who, what and where tummy tuck can be and cannot be done.

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 consumers.

Tummy Tuck 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.

Crystal, Malaysia, 19 Dec 17
I was a size 18 and I'm proud of it. But the only thing I'm not happy about is my tummy! It's big and the shape is bad. I want a fast solution. Since I've been a long time patient of Smart International and I feel very comfortable, I decided to proceed with their explanation about liposuction. My plastic surgeon, Dr. Ali and my aesthetic doctor, Dato Dr. JasG is very professional and caring throughout the procedure to make sure I am fine and comfortable. It was bearable. It has been a month now and currently, I am a size 14. Two sizes down! I'm so happy and satisfied. I'm already planning for my next beauty procedure with Dr. Ali and Dato Dr. JasG! Thank you, Smart International.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to reduce abdominal fat.

Full Tummy Tuck vs Mini Tummy Tuck
  • Full abdominoplasty – is suitable if you have a lot of excess skin. Your surgeon will make a curved cut from one hip to the other. They will remove any excess skin and fat. Your surgeon will then cut under the skin above your umbilicus (belly button), pulling it downwards and tightening it. Sometimes they will need to reconstruct your umbilicus and tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.
  • Mini abdominoplasty – is best suited for women who don’t have stretch marks or saggy skin, but have a pouch below the belly button. Your surgeon will only need to make a small cut just above the pubic area to remove the excess skin.
