Guidelines on Aesthetic Medical Practice

It is clear from browsing around search results, forums and popular blogs that there is a lot of confusion out there. Since breast augmentation is one of the most sought after cosmetic surgery procedure performed to enhance body image and self esteem, many Malaysians have gone for 'cheap breast augmentation' 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 breast surgery. Bombarded with misinformation about ethical plastic surgery, and the peer pressure for enhancing their breasts; unqualified doctors have taken advantage of their naivety.

“Beauticians can be hauled up by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) if they portray themselves as doctors or they carry out procedures that only doctors can do under the guidelines on aesthetic medical practice,”...

Thankfully, the Malaysian Government has come out with guidelines on aesthetic medical practice to address some of the confusion. It's clearly stated in the guidelines that breast implant procedures are major procedures and have to be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon (and not by a beautician) in an operation theater at a hospital or a licensed ambulatory care center.


Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, Breast Lift and Breast Fillers?

Before you visit your plastic surgeon, you may wish to understand a bit more about breast implants, breast lift and breast augmentation in order to have a better conversation with your cosmetic surgeon.

Breast augmentation alone cannot correct sagging or drooping breasts. Simply increasing the volume, or size, of the breast will only cause the breast to sag more with time. When performed as a standalone procedure, breast augmentation can increase or balance the size of the breast, restore the breast volume, and restore the shape of the breast after partial or total loss. In contrast, during a breast lift procedure (mastopexy), loose, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. As a result, the overall shape of the breasts is improved, and they are lifted to a new, more upright position. In combination, breast implants and a breast lift result in total rejuvenation, not only increasing the size of the breast, but restoring a firmer, perkier appearance as well.

There is also some confusion on breast fillers vs breast implants around forums and review sites. Here are some answers by board certified plastic surgeons:



Ban on Macrolane Breast Enhancement Confirms FDA Predictions - Recently, patients who were treated with the Macrolane dermal filler to enlarge their breasts, were urged to have their doctor do extra screening with their mammograms. The manufacturers of MacrolaneTM, have ceased marketing this product for breast enhancement until further notice. Some radiologists have reported difficulty reading mammograms of patients who have had Macrolane breast enhancement.

Hyaluronic acid has come to represent the most widely used injectable cosmetic product in the world. Brought into being by the Swedish company Q-Med, in 2007 Macrolane™ was authorized for use in France, and the year after, it received official European approval as a means of breast augmentation. Since then, however, numerous controversies pertaining to its side effects have led to its withdrawal from the worldwide breast augmentation market.
Ref: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/260113146_The_latest_information_on_Macrolane_Its_indications_and_restrictions [accessed Nov 08 2018].

Macrolane is a very new product which has been developed in Europe specifically for breast augmentation based on the concept of dermal fillers that we use today. It is an HA filler approved in Europe and the UK. The product is used to correct contour defects in the breast, and for augmentation, and like all hyaluronic acid gels will last up to a year or two before it has to be repeated. I have no information yet as to cost, or possible cup size. Also the complication and satisfaction rate is not known. It seems unlikely that the product will provide the volume possible with a saline, or a silicone gel breast implant. An implant currently would be the best alternative for most seeking enhancement.
Ref: https://www.realself.com/question/long-term-safe-macrolane-breast-filler-breast-implant

Yes, I do that but not with hyaluronic acid type filler for it would cost too much but I use saline that I slowly inject into the breast as an office visit procedure. I fill the breasts up to whatever size the patient wishes. This slowly does disappear over a day or so but gives the patient an idea of what she will look like as well as maybe even helps her fill out her wedding dress for that special day! My patients like it and I get a better idea of what size implant they would prefer. I have been doing the same for cheek and chin implants for many years.
Ref: https://www.realself.com/question/hyaluronic-acid-injections-temporary-breast-enlargement

Hyaluronic acid is currently being investigated as a possible alternative to breast implants, but is not approved for general use as of yet. Saline injected into the breast would absorb very quickly and would not be effective.

Do Note:
While the most expensive surgeon may not necessarily be "the best", there also may be reasons for a surgeon to charge a relatively lower fees. If "shopping" by phone for the "best deal" in plastic surgery, beware of "low-balling". The low-balling technique is a persuasion tactic in which an item is initially offered at a lower price than one expects in order to get the buyer to commit; then the price is suddenly increased.

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.

Nov 2017 - I GOT MY BOOBJOB DONE IN MALAYSIA? | Andrea Ong

Jun 2014 - Boob Job in Malaysia - Kuala Lumpur
I’d always been self-conscious about the size of my breasts – at a 34A, they just seemed so small compared to my wide hips and I was really jealous of my larger chested friends.
At the start of this year, I finally went for the plunge and decided to get implants – after some research, I decided to go with Beverly Wilshire Medical Clinic in KL, Malaysia, as they seemed really professional and the procedure was at a pretty competitive rate compared to here in Aussie.
Dr Nasir suggested I use MENTOR silicone implants – I was a little worried about it at the start, as I’d read all those crazy stories about implants exploding, but he reassured me that the type he would use are very safe...

Moving Forward - What Next?

You may wish to run through the following as your summary checklist:
  • Filter and shortlist your clinics.
  • Once you have shortlisted the clinics, book an appointment to have a consultation with your plastic surgeon. Do compare them based on your first impressions and other considerations. Use a table with factors to consider and a scoring for each important factor, if you need to improve your clarity.
  • Are they accommodating in terms of appointment time and date?
  • Was a solid plan of action determined with detailed information especially post-procedure precaution and care?
  • In the event of a possible complication or infection, do you need to pay extra?
And one last precaution, hotel rooms are not meant for cosmetic surgery procedures. 

For international customers, it's recommended that you take up a travel insurance. This is to ensure that in the event of post-operative complication, your hospital admission cost would be covered.
