Malaysian Getaway for Facelift with Dr Nasir AAA+++ Very Happy - Malaysia

After deciding in March this year to have a facelift overseas I began my research. I choose Gorgeous getaways as a booking agent as I had a work colleague who had used them and I also choose Malaysia and Dr Nasir for the same reason.I had read both positive and negative reviews on the agent the doctor and the destination. I was well aware of things that could go wrong as with any surgery and was willing to take that calculated risk. As a nurse of 35+ years my concern was more with the competency of the anaesthetist as the operation takes at least 4.5 hours. With the desision made my sister in law decided to have a facelift as well. She choose a different Doctor and we shared a room at the park royal for 2 weeks. GG staff in Malaysia were amazing and I am so glad I had that support. There pick you up from the airport, take you to your appointments. Ring and see you every day. Elena my care consultant was wonderful. I had sent Dr Nasir before photos and I also had a consult with him on the day of surgery and met my anesthetist. I asked all the question I wanted to and felt very confident. The medical centre is first class as were all the staff. Truely amazing.....I was in the Beverly Wiltshire medical centre. My greatest surprise came after the operation.. I had NO pain at all not even a head ache. I felt great but swollen of cause.. After the mist caring treatment at the hospital I was taken back to the hotel the next afternoon. By the next morning I was itching to go for a walk and explore KL. I honestly felt so well. At the moment I am still in Kl and go home in 2 days.. a month after arriving. I have travelled to different parts of Malaysia, walked in the jungles and swan in the sea, gone hiking sand on boat trips. At the moment I have very little numbness left and only very slight swelling. Scaring is minimal. So all in all I am thrilled with my decision to have Dr Nasir as my doctor..I am happy to answer any question. I have attached before photos and some photos from 1 1/2 weeks post op till now almost 4 weeks after.

5 Weeks post op back at work and feeling great

So back in Australia and back at work full time. Feeling really well, but still in holiday mode. Remain really happy with the results

To make it a bit clearer I had an smas facelift, upper and lower eyes, brow lift neck lift on the 14/12/13....I had incisions around ear across my forehead, around the back of my ears and head as well as on by bottom lash line and upper eye.... cheers

You look fantastic. I would love to just wear a ponytail and no-makeup and look that great. No need to blabber on about the why's! I need to do this for myself but terrified of course. Through my web trawling I came across your blog and basically that made my decision for me. I somehow had convinced myself that all I needed was an S-lift but the surgeon recommended mid and lower flift, upper and lower eyes and neck! I was fooling myself. But have to admit that my selfies were a rude shock after years of avoiding looking at myself. I have a young child and feel like a grandmother and I'm really worried about taking the risk of going under for so long. How realistic should I be in regard to recover time? I don't want to shock family and staying away from them for longer than a week will be so hard for me. I really am so grateful for you sharing your experience.

Thank you for the details. I am considering a face and neck lift and your photos are an excellent help to help with decisions. I already had a lower face lift in Melbourne 3 years ago which was not really successful and the doctor is not prepared to do anything extra to improve this aprat from sending me for "cosmedic" and expensive beauty treatments. I beleive that bad can happen in both Australia and overseas and I have several stories of some "horror" stories including the loss of eyesight with a so called "best in their field" Australian doctor. I will contiue my research into Australian/Malaysian and Thai options but your story is great. And you look fantastic!

Sorry for the delay in reply susique, I agree that bad results can happen even with the most experienced doctors her and overseas. Being a registered nurse in australia and working in some very high profile private hospitals, I have to say none come up to the standard of the one I stayed in, in Malaysia. I was blow away with the care and facilities. Also that's so much for you very kind words.

How did your surgeon create such an amazing improvement in your upper eyelid with only a facelift? It is a wonderful result and one that almost anyone would love to have with only incisions around the ear area. Do you know what technique was used? thanks, grace60

Hi grace60, Oh no it was not just the smas face lift, as I stated I also has upper and lower eye lids , brow lift as well.. I had way more than just incisions around my ears.. all over the top of my scalp, upper lower lids, around d the back of my neck... I think the surgeon would have been a miracle worker if he could do that with only incisions around my ears... I hope this is a bit clearer.. sorry you misunderstood what I wrote

WOW Can I just say you look like a totally different girl. Amazing job, You must be so pleased. I live in Brisbane so can I just ask you what made you look at going to Malaysia as opposed to Thailand? I have a appointment to see a Dr in Sydney in Aril re facelift, but now you have me thinking about Malaysia LOL. One last question - How did you choose Dr Nasir? sandy
  • Reply
Hi sandy, I choose Dr nasir mostly due to having a staff member at work who had him do her face lift in Malaysia. After that I did my own research and contacted a couple of doctors overseas but happily decided on Dr nasir in the end. I choose Malaysia as that is where the doctor was, and I loved the country ,food and people just wonderful. I didn't really have an option to have a facelift here due to price and I really believe my treatment could not have been any better here.. hope this helps answer your questions cheers

Thank you immensely for sharing your experience on RealSelf! Did you have to take your own supplies or did they have everything you needed there for recovery?

  • Reply
I didnt take anything with me, other than personal belongings, everything as far as dressings and medication was supplied.
