Dr Wong – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Our Facelift Specialist.
Your choice for a surgeon shouldn’t just be the price. All our recommended surgeons ensure significant savings in comparison with prices at home. It is important that you also consider their working styles to match your personality and goals of surgery.
Some are specialists in particular areas of the body while some will undertake multiple procedures. It is worth looking at past patients’ experience to help to guide your choice. Your surgeon is the key person in your planned holiday in Malaysia because you rely totally on him/her for technical advice, surgical skill and post-operative care. In Malaysia and other south-eastern Asian countries, all follow up care is tightly directed by the surgeon, whereas in Western countries, nursing care takes more precedence.
To have a better ‘patient to surgeon’ match, we have put together some relevant information together about surgeons we have worked with and can safely recommend. This way, you can choose your surgeon by getting a feel about his personality and the way he works before you meet with him.
Tip: Please book your surgeon carefully: don’t choose purely based on price, instead, consider the surgeon’s skills, bedside manner and the hospital quality. We do offer budget options for those who are having straightforward single procedures, if you are having multiple surgeries, then please consider your surgeon choice very carefully.
