TOP 5 Cosmetic surgery in Malaysia
Over the last decade, demand for cosmetic surgery in Malaysia has been rising at a steady pace. Many cosmetic plastic surgery centers now mushroom across the country to fill this ever-growing demand. Despite the advent of newer non-invasive aesthetic procedures, some of the conventional cosmetic surgeries still remain to be popular. Even though we have no local data to tabulate the exact numbers of plastic surgeries in Malaysia, we strongly believe that the top 5 cosmetic surgery in Malaysia will somewhat reflect that of the Americans and Koreans. Here is what we believe to be the TOP 5 cosmetic surgery performed in Malaysia.
#5 Lower Blepharoplasty (eye bag removal)
As we age, changes to our skin, fat, muscle and bone around the eyes give us sagging under eye folds and the appearance of eye bag. These changes make us look deceptively older and tired over time. There are newer techniques that involve minimally-invasive procedures but lower blepharoplasty remains one of the most effective ways of dealing with these changes. Most patients resume their normal daily activities after about 1 week after surgery but full recovery generally takes 2-6 weeks depending on individuals’ healing pace. Despite this, lower blepharoplasty remains one of the most sorts after treatment in Malaysia.
Malaysia is labeled as one of the most obese countries in the region, and hence it’s not a surprise that liposuction is ranked one of the TOP 5 cosmetic surgery. Liposuction or Lipo is a procedure that sees the surgeon remove excessive fat from certain areas of the body in an attempt to restore the beautiful curve of our body. Both men and women undergo the liposuction treatment for a broad range of reasons. Men generally undergo liposuction to get rid of gynecomastia (men’s breast) while women like this treatment to get a better look. No matter what motivated you for liposuction, be sure to engage a certified medical practitioner in this procedure.
#3 Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants + Fat Transfer)
Breast augmentation is another popular procedure in Malaysia. Breast augmentation involves either using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the breast. There are several personal reasons why a woman may choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Besides the desire to achieve physically fuller breasts, most women choose breast augmentation procedures as a way of improving their self-esteem and confidence. Surely, every woman has the right to feel beautiful and confident with her appearance. However, before making the decision for breast augmentation, have an open and honest discussion with your certified plastic surgeon.
#2 Rhinoplasty (Nose jobs)
Following the rise of the K-POP culture, Rhinoplasty, or “nose jobs” has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Many Malaysians wish for a more prominent nose bridge that they view as an attractive feature. Rhinoplasty either utilizes surgical implants or the patient’s own cartilage, ear or ribs to build up the nose bridge area. Although this is an easy and straightforward procedure, it’s good to note that there are several risks that are involved in all types of surgeries. Therefore, you need to discuss with a certified surgeon prior to any of these procedures.
#1 Upper blepharoplasty (double eyelid surgery)
Upper blepharoplasty surgery is undeniably the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in Malaysia. It was traditionally used to improve the appearance of loose saggy eyelids skin that may sometime impair our vision. However, upper blepharoplasty surgery is now commonly used to transform what is known as “monolid” to “double eyelid”. It is better known as double eyelid surgery or Asian blepharoplasty. The surgeon employs several surgical techniques to create a double eyelid, making the eyes look bigger and more expressive. This procedure appears to be simple but double eyelid surgery takes several years to master and should only be done by a certified surgeon.
