LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D. F.A.C.S., one of the respected figures in Beverly Hills plastic surgery, has a word of advice for the New Year. Many of us spend years arguing with ourselves about whether or not to have plastic surgery. You'd think that once we'd made up on our minds, we'd be fairly quick to actually find the right doctor and get started on the face lift, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation in Beverly Hills. The fact of the matter, however, is that human nature tends to make us skittish about actually going through with something – even if we know we're eventually going to do it.

"I wish I had a dollar for every time a patient told me that they wished they had actually had their work done years earlier," said Dr.  Jarrah-Nejad, who is known more familiarly to his patients and staff as "Dr. J." "But the fact of the matter is that life is short and every day is precious. Really, there's no time better than the start of a new year – after the holidays and well before summertime – to get started on some long delayed changes. If some aspect of your appearance or physicality is bothering you and you know it's time to have it changed, what's the point of waiting for a face lift or what have you?"

When asked about the most common reasons he thinks patients tend to put off having a procedure such as a buttock augmentation in Beverly Hills or elsewhere, Dr. J. points to two perfectly understandable concerns: money and fear.  While he understands that concern about possible outcomes or discomfort is only natural and that people have to be concerned about their budgets, Dr. J. is quick to point out that both worries are overrated.

"I think patients are usually surprised at how relatively affordable the elective procedures I do usually are; cost is almost never determinative of whether or not a procedure gets done." As for non-financial worries, Dr. J. notes improved and less invasive procedures are constantly being perfected by leading plastic surgeons like himself. "Believe it or not, the first face lift was performed back in 1901. Since then, doctors have been able to refine procedures to the point where most of them are far safer and more comfortable than was imaginable even just 10 or fifteen years ago. We've really gotten to the point where, if you know for sure that you want a procedure, you've really got to ask yourself: 'If not now, when?'"
