Best Liposuction in Johor Bahru 2020

If you are looking for liposuction related information and liposuction prices in Johor Bahru, 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.

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

Liposuction procedures are to be conducted by plastic surgeons with LCP Chapter 3 license. Untrained doctors and beauticians, please do not attempt.

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.

#1. Liposuction Prices in Johor Bahru

Liposuction is cosmetic surgery and is not covered by medical insurance. The cost in Johor Bahru can vary from RM 8,000 to RM 20,000.

Looking for cheap liposuction? We understand that price is an important consideration. However, a big life-changing decision like liposuction; is not without risks, the main reason why a guideline was developed by the Malaysian Ministry of Health to ensure safety for the public.

Although pricing information on liposuction in Malaysia is everywhere on the internet, we have compiled and organised the information accordingly in one place. The pricing information below is based on the published prices from major centres and pricing information available on the internet.

The cost of liposuction treatment varies from surgeon to surgeon and may be dependent on the number of treatment areas, complexity of your case and your course of treatment. Consultation fees also vary from doctor to doctor. Some may offer a free initial assessment while others may charge a fee.

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:
  • 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. Common areas for liposuction include face liposuction (double chin), abdomen, thighs, hips, love handles or flanks, back and buttocks.
  • 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.
  • 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.
