LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society of Plastic Surgery has launched a public awareness campaign to encourage prospective patients to thoroughly vet physicians to ensure that they are truly qualified plastic surgeons. Spurred by reports that more customers visiting qualified surgeons are asking them to correct problems related to mishandled procedures, the ASPS campaign is publicly encouraging patients to make sure that physicians are board certified as plastic surgeons before seriously considering them. Noted Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., supports the awareness campaign and has long been very vocal about his concerns that too many individuals are obtaining procedures from doctors who are not qualified plastic surgeons.

An active member of the ASPS and double board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, the doctor known more familiarly to his patients as Dr. J, is one of the most respected physicians working in the highly competitive Beverly Hills and Los Angeles markets. Still, as the holder of numerous plastic surgeons awards, the surgeon is highly aware that vulnerable patients can fall prey to promises of nearly miraculous plastic surgery outcomes for bargain-basement prices. Work done by non-experienced doctors and, in extreme cases, unlicensed practitioners, very often means endless heartache and vastly greater expense for the patient as one or more follow-up procedures are very often required.

Dr. J and the ASPS completely agree that, when it comes to plastic surgery, it's much better to be safe than sorry. Horror stories in this area are all too common. For example, the ASPS is highlighting the unfortunate case of New York City resident Nafsika Lourentzatos, who received questionable silicone injections from an uncertified doctor and wound up having to have her breasts removed. Other botched procedures have led to serious and at times life threatening consequences. 

Whatever patients decide, they are always going to be best off with a widely respected physician and highly experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. J. Popular both locally and with a wide following of patients from across the U.S. and around the world who come to his offices for out of town plastic surgery, Dr. J has become one of the most respected names in the hugely competitive sphere of Beverly Hills plastic surgery for a reason.

While safety is a primary reason to pick out the most qualified surgeon available, getting the best possible aesthetic outcomes is, in most cases, the whole point of the effort. Dr. J's outstanding work can be seen on numerous before and after pages on his website. He is known not only for his medical ability, but for his highly developed aesthetic sense. That means work that not only improves the appearance of a single body part, but which flatters the overall appearance of patients.
