LOS ANGELES, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Even in the very image conscious world of Beverly Hills plastic surgery, patients sometimes feel as if they are being shallow when they devote time to improving their appearance through a given procedure. Renowned plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., has performed countless flawless examples of the face lift, tummy tuck and liposuction Beverly Hills patients demand, yet he has found that the results are often much more than skin deep.

"How attractive we are actually depends on more than just our physical appearance," says Dr. Jarrah-Nejad. Known affectionately as "Dr. J" to his colleagues and patients, the doctor has noted that patients' lives often improve more than anyone might expect from a simple aesthetic improvement. "Naturally, it's always a good thing to look better, but it's more than that. Feeling more attractive tends to instill confidence and that tends to make us seem even more appealing," says Dr. J.  "No wonder so many of my patients seem to move on to newer, more positive phases in their lives after their procedures."

Of course, Dr. J's observation is not particularly novel. The virtuous cycle in which an improvement in our appearance is followed by an uptick in our self-confidence, which tends to make us appear more charismatic and attractive to others, is a very well-known phenomenon. Moreover, the improved confidence may lead to other steps, such as a new exercise regimen, which may further improve the patient's appearance and general well-being. Nevertheless, patients who might feel slightly unsure about receiving procedures initially are often surprised at how truly effective they can be.

Of course, the first step is finding an outstanding plastic surgeon who can deliver the desired results. Dr. J is known as a highly innovative double board certified plastic surgeon who has helped to pioneer many of the most popular recent innovations in plastic surgery. These include using fat transfers for Brazilian-style buttock augmentation as a highly effective alternative to the silicone-based butt implants Los Angeles patients often inquire about. He is also a leader in rapid recovery breast augmentation.

Moreover, whichever type of procedure a physician and a patient agree upon, a plastic surgeon needs to have multiple skill sets. While it is crucial, of course, that the doctor be a highly experienced surgeon with a wide medical knowledge, a truly outstanding plastic surgeon also requires the touch of a fine artist. Dr. J has been praised by countless patients for the attractive, youthful, and extremely natural looking results he achieves on a regular basis. This is because his sculptural abilities allow him to create results that complement a patient's general appearance. In the end, it's all about fashioning results that make patients look and, often, feel better.
