How To Find The Best Plastic Surgeon and Plastic Surgery Clinics In Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, Malaysia?

You're likely to start your online research by "Googling" phrases like 'best plastic surgery Malaysia, 'best cosmetic surgery Malaysia', 'best plastic surgeon in Malaysia' or 'best plastic surgeon Kuala Lumpur'. You'll just going to find a list of the plastic surgery clinic websites including advertisements and directories on the search results. How do you know which clinic to choose or whether you have chosen the right plastic surgeon? Do take note that online popularity doesn't necessary mean that the clinic or the surgeon is the best in town for all kinds of aesthetic or plastic surgery procedures.


Find Plastic Surgeons (Cosmetic Surgeons) by Popular Locations in Malaysia: 

While some of the online sites do provide the needed information; the method in which the clinics or the specialists are selected are not explained. Some of these directories are not aware of the local aesthetic practice regulations in Malaysia that stipulate who, what and where cosmetic surgeries can be and cannot be done. While you may wish to ignore the guidelines but do bear in mind that the guidelines were designed and developed to protect consumers like you in the first place, whether you are from Malaysia or abroad.

It is also clear from browsing around forums and popular healthcare marketing sites that there is a lot of myths and misinformation being spread. Researching on the internet is not as simple as one might think as misinformation could lead to health scams and even botched surgeries. It may not be practical to make the best decision all the time, but it's important to make an informed decision based on the readily available information on the internet.

Plastic Surgery Malaysia

There are more than 50 plastic surgeons registered with the Malaysian National Specialist Register. Most of the plastic surgeons are based in Kuala Lumpur, or simply called KL by locals. And just in case you are a foreigner, Kuala Lumpur is the largest city in Malaysia.

Using Google to find the Best Plastic Surgery in Malaysia?

You have probably landed on this post via Google search results. Try to 'Google' various plastic surgery related phrases. You will get a list of search results and the top ones are normally advertisements (Google Ads).

Bear in mind that the plastic surgeons or plastic surgery clinics high ranking on page 1 and visible advertisements on Google may not be truly reflective of the surgeon's skills, experience and also how 'safe' is the surgeon.

So, how do you shortlist the few and verify that the clinic is licensed and the plastic surgeon is legit or has enough training and experience for the procedure/s?

The following are links that would address the questions above:

Please take note that all registered medical practitioners who qualify and wish to practise aesthetic medical practice (including cosmetic surgeries) are required to register under the National Registry of Registered Medical Practitioners Practising Aesthetic Medical Practice in Malaysia.

Next, you Google again the prospective plastic surgeon’s name and the centre; and add in the keywords ‘forums’ or ‘reviews’ to see what other people have to say about them. If you know a friend or relative who has a plastic surgery procedure done before, do seek their advice.

In general, we would select a plastic surgeon based on experience and training as well as feedback from other surgeons, doctors or patients. It's also important to take into consideration ‘where’ the plastic surgery is to be performed. Major liposuction (liposuction for multiple areas) in particular, requires ‘general anaesthesia’ and needs to be performed in a well-equipped hospital or ambulatory care centre with the presence of a qualified anaesthetist.

Bear in mind that the plastic surgeon's 'years of experience' alone may not be truly reflective of the surgeon's skills. You'll still need to combine other information that you have gathered from reliable sources in order to come to a decision. If you still have some doubt, it's better to delay the decision and make a better-informed decision later then to make an urgent wrong choice.

Next, you may also wish to run through some of the Plastic Surgery Malaysia Reviews

Wrapping It Up

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.
