Why should I choose Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for my cosmetic plastic surgery holiday?
Kuala Lumpur is a very popular location with tourists, most people here speak English, so it is very easy to communicate. The low cost and world-class quality, service and expertise make it a great place for surgery and shopping! The private hospitals are certified to internationally recognised standards. Ampang Puteri Hospital has achieved the quality standard ISO 9002. It is the only hospital in Malaysia to have achieved accreditation 6 years in a row by the Malaysian Society for Quality of Health (MSQH). Dr. Jalil - the Principle Surgeon, has over 20 years experience as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, he is fully experienced in all types of cosmetic surgery.
Can I have multiple cosmetic plastic surgery procedures?
A very large percentage of our clients who come to Kuala Lumpur with Beautiful You Holidays will have more than one cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, and many will combine cosmetic plastic surgery with dentistry, laser surgery and some non-surgical treatments because of the great price packages that we offer. We also offer great follow-up care and daily communication to ensure you are getting the very best KL has to offer. See our cosmetic plastic surgery holidays prices and makeover packages for more information on the multiple cosmetic plastic surgery procedures you can have. However, you can have any combination that you wish just send us an enquiry. The cosmetic surgeon will talk to you about your multiple cosmetic plastic surgeries. Often is better to have one longer cosmetic procedure than two separate surgeries, as it is preferable not to go under general anesthetic twice. Your cosmetic surgeon will determine what is best for you based on your age, your health and history. Our cosmetic surgeons perform multiple cosmetic plastic surgery procedures all the time and the results are fantastic.
What are the cosmetic surgeon´s qualifications?
All of our cosmetic surgeons are Board Certified F.R.C.S. Our plastic surgeons are Senior Surgeons in each of the Hospitals that we use, and have all been practicing in Kuala Lumpur and around the world for many years. Their CV´s can be read under our cosmetic surgeons section. The plastic surgeons have had comparable experience to cosmetic surgeons at home. They have studied and worked in the UK, USA, and Australia, and are on par with the high standards at leading surgery organizations at home in your own country. Low cost does not imply low quality. The specialists have simply chosen to live in their home town with their families, but come as qualified and as experienced as you would find at home.
Why go to Malaysia for a cosmetic surgery holiday?
Malaysia´s Government has regulations in place that demand practicing surgeons have accreditations in their field. Medical tourism is a growing industry, made popular by the many programs we are now seeing on TV. However, the increasing costs in places like UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand make it unaffordable for many people who would have otherwise considered cosmetic surgery at home. The number of people travelling overseas for cosmetic plastic surgery, dentistry, laser surgery etc is increasing every year. The reasons for this are many: a) The ever-growing increase in popularity of cosmetic plastic surgery. More and more people are opting to improve their looks and confidence through cosmetic plastic surgery and the latest dental techniques. This is also becoming more socially acceptable, and people are wanting more in their lives. b) As medical health funds do not cover elective surgery, people are looking for alternatives. c) The Malaysian Government are investing millions of dollars in Medical Tourism, dedication to quality and regulation has seen vast improvements in the industry and hospitals are very competitive with Western quality standards. This investment has led to retaining high quality cosmetic surgeons and medical staff and state-of-the-art equipment. d) The cost of cosmetic plastic surgery in Malaysia is still affordable - with the cost of flights, accommodation and cosmetic plastic surgery, the total outlay for a patient can still be less than 50% of having cosmetic surgery at home. Beautiful You Holidays has chosen Malaysia as the country of choice for a number of reasons. The unique combination of world-class quality, service and expertise with low costs and no taxes makes Malaysia an extremely attractive destination for cosmetic plastic surgery and recovery treatments. Of course, our personal care is something extra that you could never get from a home clinic. We are with you every step of the way, and will be on hand if you need anything. We will help with all formalities with the hospital and clinics and then ensure you are comfortable and recovering well. When you are on your feet, we can offer a range of luxurious pampering treatments or tours to show you around the beautiful country. No clinic or hospital at home could ever offer this combination of service, quality and great prices.
What is the quality and standard of care in Malaysia?
Malaysia has a fantastic infrastructure. It has a stable, safe government, and although the population is a high percent Muslim, it is not considered a primary threat. Malaysia has come a long way in a little time, and has a highly developed infrastructure. Many clients comment on how clean Kuala Lumpur is. Reasonable care and safety precautions should be taken whilst travelling abroad, and KL is no exception to this rule - don´t walk alone at night and be careful of theft with personal belongings. But generally you will feel very safe here. The hospitals have been accredited to ISO 9001 - an international standard of quality. The hospitals must go through rigorous international testing to achieve this standard. Therefore, the quality in the hospitals and clinics is very similar to what you would experience in your home country. Service we find is often much better than you will be used to at home - with low wages, there are more people employed and therefore you will enjoy a better standard of care.
I cannot find much information on the web about the hospitals and surgeons?
It is illegal in Malaysia for hospitals and cosmetic surgeons to advertise, therefore you will not find much information in the web. Also, due to word of mouth all the leading plastic surgeons do not have to advertise, their work speaks for them. Beautiful You Holidays has done all the research here in Kuala Lumpur, we met and interviewed all the leading cosmetic surgeons, and due to evidence of their excellent past work, years of experience and price, we found that this combination along with the international standard of hospitals that they work in was extremely difficult to find. You will not get the attention and service from the hospitals if you travel alone rather than with Beautiful You Holidays either. They do not provide for extra care outside the hospital after you are discharged, and it is up to you to get to and from the hospital for you follow-up checks. We are with you every step of the way, delivering you to all your appointments in a chauffeur driven car.
Why should I choose to travel with Beautiful You Holidays - Wouldn´t it be cheaper to do it all myself?
We have done all the research for you. We have been using these cosmetic surgeons for a long time and we know their work. We know that the people we have sent to them are very happy with the results. There are many reasons to choose to travel with us - here are some of them: o Access to Malaysia´s leading cosmetic surgeons, dentists and specialists. o Hospitals that meet international standards. o We provide fully qualified registered nurses - this will dramatically reduce any chance of infections with constant monitoring after cosmetic plastic surgery when you return to your hotel and throughout your holiday. o We provide local knowledge. We will tell you where to visit, what´s on, how to get there. We show you how to get the most from your stay in Kuala Lumpur so you will go back with fantastic memories. o The prices we have negotiated with our clinics, hospitals and hotels mean that our clients have better prices than should they go direct. o 24/7 contact available with Beautiful You Holidays. There will always be someone to answer your call. o What you get is peace of mind that you are looked after every step of the way from when you arrive to when you leave.
Why are the prices so much cheaper than at home?
The most important point is that Beaautiful You Holidays always works with the most experienced surgeons, specialists and hospitals. We do not engage in cut-price operations, we will never sacrifice quality for price. Instead, we offer great value operations as well as a relaxing holiday. The cost advantage comes in with the low cost of living and wages compared to the UK, USA, New Zealand or Australia, coupled with the fact that there is NO TAX paid on treatments. Also, the good exchange rate means that Malaysia is naturally less expensive than home. We have tracked down the best private hospital and surgeons in Kuala Lumpur, so we can confidently say that you will get better quality and service for the price that you pay at home. The service is excellent - with low wages, the hospital is able to employ more staff which means you are guaranteed attention immediately. Also, there is no waiting list for private hospitals, as it is relatively expensive for locals, and therefore you can be guaranteed your service when you want it.
What is the post-cosmetic plastic surgery care like?
For post-cosmetic plastic surgery support, Beautiful You Holidays employs fully qualified registered nurses to attend to our clients once they are discharged from the hospital. After cosmetic plastic surgery, these nurses will see you each day while you are confined to your hotel room to change your dressings and check the wound. Beautiful You Holidays also offers follow-up consultations with the cosmetic surgeons and 24-hour emergency support. We will endeavour to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. There are plenty of options, from simple in-room movies and magazines, to tours and activities once you feel recovered to do so.
I am travelling by myself and I want to know what happens in case something goes wrong?
We have a minimum booking period for clients undergoing different cosmetic plastic surgery treatments, so for the time you are in Malaysia, we are contactable for the entire duration of your stay - 24 hours a day. We will be the main contact and, depending on your needs, will sort out the steps to take to alleviate your concerns. We will have access to the cosmetic surgeon if you need an emergency follow-up appointment. Most importantly, you don't need to worry about travelling alone - the beauty of travelling with beautiful You Holidays is that we have access to the right people, so can arrange and organise things at quick notice to sort out any problems.
What are the steps for booking a cosmetic surgery holiday?
Beautiful You Holidays makes the process for enquiring, booking and paying for your cosmetic surgery holiday easy as possible. Variations or cancellations of plans: after your consultation with your cosmetic surgeon, you or your plastic surgeon may have changes or modifications to the original treatments that you originally agreed on. In this case, we will notify you of the new prices for the treatments you agreed on with the plastic surgeon. You must make payment for all cosmetic plastic surgery and dentistry treatments before being treated. We recommend credit card payment for simplicity of payment when you get to Malaysia. We also recommend you let your bank know that you will be making payments by credit card in Malaysia so that you don't have any problems whilst here. If you decide to cancel your treatment with the cosmetic surgeon or dentist, you will not be required to pay any amount, however, your accommodation previously booked and paid for will not be refunded. You may book an entire package or can just a single procedure. Beautiful You Holidays are set up to ensure the client's total wellbeing. For this reason, we need a certain amount of recovery time before travelling to ensure healing and recovery is on track. Upon your initial request and booking, we will let you know what the minimum amount of days you need to stay in the country to rest, however, we do recommend a minimum of 14 days. We ensure you it is time well spent and you will enjoy the time away from everyday stresses! We also need you to stay at the hotel so we can monitor your progress and be in close and immediate contact at all times.
What are the medical preconditions for cosmetic plastic surgery?
We select clients carefully as cosmetic plastic surgery is always a serious selection process. The surgeon will carefully assess your form and may come back to you to ask you additional questions. If you have had a prior condition, we will ask you to get a medical report from your doctor. We also ask you to fill in our medical questionnaire which the surgeon will see before you are accepted for surgery.
I smoke - will this affect my cosmetic plastic surgery?
Smoking increases the risk of surgical problems, and interferes with the recovery process, increasing the chances of scars and complications. We have the best interest of our clients at heart and would never advise a smoker to undergo surgery. It is important that you abstain from smoking at least 3 weeks prior to surgery.
What happens in the case of a complication with the treatments?
Beautiful You Holidays has a proven formula to ensure great quality results and happy clients. We state emphatically that - although all types of cosmetic plastic surgery does carry risks - the risk of complications is no higher than you would be advised by a cosmetic surgeon at home. All risks can be read in FAQ about the particular cosmetic plastic surgery you are interested in. In fact, our experience has showed that we have a higher percentage of satisfied clients than clinics at home, as we take every precaution to make sure that complications do not arise in the first place.
We do this by:
o Selecting only the most experienced plastic surgeon, specialists and clinics, where the history of complication is close to zero
o Selecting the right patients - the cosmetic surgeon assesses each patient's medical history, physical and mental status and current medications before travel and we do reject people who we feel may be at increased risk to complications. We also have strict standards, for example, we will not knowingly take a patient who has smoked within 3 weeks of the operation
o Having an excellent level of follow-up care, including careful monitoring over the immediate days after plastic surgery, and availability of health care if you need it in Malaysia
However, you must be aware that surgical results differ from person to person, depending on many factors e.g. age, medical history and health etc. You may experience results that are different from what you expected. You should discuss and agree on your expectations with the surgeon before cosmetic plastic surgery. If you have any concerns while you are on holiday, the cosmetic surgeon is on hand to discuss and treat any side effects or complications. When you book, we give you a form to read and sign which covers all the possible side effects and complications that may occur in very rare cases. You must also discuss and be thoroughly aware of the risks with the plastic surgeon. More questions? Please contact us.
