Liposuction Procedure in Kuala Lumpur (KL) 2018: Prices and Reviews

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, fat modelling, liposculpture, suction lipectomy, suction-assisted fat removal, lipo etc.

I’ve seen advertisements for ‘non-invasive liposuction’ or 'non-surgical liposuction'. What is that?

First of all, that’s a bit of a misnomer. Liposuction, by its very nature (i.e., removing excess fat from under the skin via suction) is a surgical procedure.

In a non-invasive procedure, there’s no incision or cut made in the skin.

'Laser liposuction', on the other hand, will still involve an incision and a cannula — in other words, it’s still a surgical procedure, and you will still have a (small) scar.



Liposuction Kuala Lumpur

Although information on liposuction is everywhere on the internet, some sites are probably providing piece-meal information and flakey recommendations. While some of the sites do provide the needed information; the methods in which the clinics or the specialists are selected are not explained. It’s also obvious that some of these directories are not aware of the local regulations and MOH Aesthetic Medical Practice Guidelines in Malaysia that stipulate who, what and where liposuction 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 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.

The pricing information below is based on the published prices from major centres and pricing information available on the internet.

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.

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.

Anyone know where to do liposuction in malaysia?the cost?the good and bad?
p/s: We're about to find out liposuction so pls don't suggest "do exercise lar" or similar to it


Oct 22, 2007
well... my BROTHER did that, on his HIPS... both sides...

i think there is no side effects that i know, it's just sucking out your extra fats... and it's PAINFUL of course...

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...

my brother is only 18 years old... i think he did his lipo suction last year... 17...

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.
