LOS ANGELES, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad's commitment to the Hippocratic Oath was never in question. Beverly Hills plastic surgery is a growing field, but despite their high profile, surgeons like Jarrah-Nejad - aka "Dr. J," as he's affectionately known to his patients - aren't often reputed for their acts of loving kindness as much as they are for breast augmentation in Beverly Hills. For Dr. J, however, there is nothing more precious than his opportunities to touch the lives of those less fortunate. The developing world is overrun with conditions we in the United States would normally see treated easily. "Some of these are simple hand surgeries and burn treatments that we in the States take for granted."
Dr. J's humanitarian principles inform his approach to plastic surgery here in Beverly Hills as well. Patients describe him as "very attentive, and generous with his time." One patient remarked that it was comforting to know Dr. J routinely handles cases involving children, and other emergency reconstructive procedures, "because it just seems like it takes compassion and emotional strength to handle those cases," she said.
Dr. J recently returned from a trip to Peru with a renewed conviction about giving back. The small city of Ayacucho in The Southern Andes is far from the luxury of Rodeo Dr., and not located anywhere near Peru's primary tourists attractions. What attracted Dr. J, however, was the city's need for an experienced surgeon who could offer life changing surgery to some of its people. This summer, Ayacucho was the scene of a number of Dr. J's hand surgeries, facial reconstructions, cleft lip repairs, cleft palate repairs, rhinoplasty operations, and surgeries to reduce burn scars.
Now that Dr. J has returned to his busy Los Angeles routine, he wishes to express his heartfelt gratitude to those in the United States who helped him find Ayacucho, and those in Peru who accommodated him. He hopes that his colleagues will answer the humanitarian call. "I hope every surgeon in Beverly Hills finds an Ayacucho of their own," he says. When asked if volunteer work is a bother, he shakes his head. "The world is full of so much suffering, and plastic surgery is a career that gives you so much opportunity to alleviate part of it. How could anyone feel burdened by it?"
