Cosmetic surgery in Malaysia
The Federation of Malaysia comprises Peninsular Malaysia and the states of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. To the north of Peninsular Malaysia is Thailand while its southern neighbour is Singapore. Sabah and Sarawak are bounded by Indonesia while Sarawak also shares a border with Brunei.
Malaysia is a bubbling, bustling melting pot of races and religions where the largest ethnic groups - Malays, Indians and Chinese and a myriad of indigenous ethic groups with their own unique culture and heritage live together in peace and harmony. With such a unique heritage, there is a constant procession of delightful festivals, celebrations and feasts for all to enjoy. It is a land of fascinating extremes, where towering skyscrapers look down upon primitive longhouses and it has some of the best beaches and diving spots in the world. English is widely spoken and understood.
Medical expertise in Malaysia rank among the best in the world and most private hospitals in the country have internationally recognised quality standards. These include the MS ISO9002 or accreditation by the Malaysian Medical Society for Quality of Health (MSQH). All private medical centres must be approved and licensed by the Ministry of Health.
Medical charges and hospitalisation costs are very competitive compared to those in many developed countries. This and the favourable exchange rates make it very affordable. For example, a normal cardiac bypass surgery (CABG) would cost in the region of USD6,000 - USD7,000.
Medical specialists are highly qualified professionals with extensive qualifications from the UK, Australia and the USA and are supported by well-trained para-medical staff and state-of-the-art, well-equipped and well-staffed private medical centres with extensive diagnostic and therapeutic resources. All medical staff speak English.
