Cosmetic Surgery Preferences in Malaysia: A Cultural Perspective

There are two main categories of cosmetic procedures: surgical and non-surgical. Non-surgical procedures include Botulinum toxin injections, soft tissue fillers, non-invasive fat reduction, non-surgical skin tightening, and various skin treatments. Surgical procedures involve liposuction, breast augmentation, facelifts, tummy tucks, and breast lifting.

According to Dr Jagjeet, liposuction and breast augmentation are popular surgical enhancements in Malaysia. Non-surgical treatments, such as botulinum toxin and facial fillers are also in high demand. In Malaysia, cosmetic preferences vary based on cultural backgrounds and personal inclinations. Some individuals choose procedures like breast lifting, augmentation, tummy tucks, and augmentation rhinoplasty. Reduction rhinoplasty is favoured by some, while eyelid surgery and breast augmentation are also popular choices.

Advancements in Endoscopy

BTMC is a pioneering hospital in Malaysia that has embraced the endoscopic approach for breast augmentation, in contrast to conventional breast augmentation methods. This technique minimises scarring, preserves breast tissue, ensures precise placement, and reduces the risk of nipple sensation loss. Patients experience faster recovery, tailored aesthetics, and minimal visible scarring.

Dr Jagjeet shares, “This technique has revolutionised cosmetic surgery and offers numerous benefits. Additionally, we utilise cutting-edge 3D software to provide patients with accurate simulations of their anticipated results. This enables patients with a clear understanding of the expected outcomes, enhancing their confidence in the surgical process.”


 A Holistic Care Towards Patients

Effective communication is the key emphasis towards patient safety and satisfaction. Dr Jagjeet practises patient care by managing their expectations, explaining the procedures, and discussing potential risks. Thorough anaesthesia evaluations are conducted to prioritise surgical safety and smooth recovery.

Safety is a top priority in BTMC’s practice. BTMC is a multidisciplinary hospital which provides complete care and support in a convenient and efficient manner. Patients receive comprehensive care from various healthcare experts during recovery such as pain management, the availability of a physiotherapy centre and dietetic services. This promotes speedy recovery and ensures optimal results for patients.

Staying Updated with the Latest Advancements

Dr Jagjeet stresses the significance of continuous medical education for surgeons, stating, “It is crucial for us to stay connected with colleagues and stay updated on the latest advancements in our field.” He actively attends global conferences and is passionate about training and equipping young plastic surgeons through training and workshops locally and overseas.
