Body Before and After Photos
Body before and after photos have probably been around since the beginning of modern plastic surgery in the early 20th century. It’s only natural as there’s no better way to judge a change in an individual’s appearance than with two similar pictures taken over the space of several weeks or a few months. For people who are considering plastic surgery and seeking out the right Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, they are an obvious and invaluable tool. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., better known as Dr. J, encourages prospective patients to take a long and careful look at before-and-pictures as part of their choice of a plastic surgeon. He considers it one of the very best ways for patients to imagine what might be realistic.
More than Skin Deep
It’s important to understand what goes into the kind of results you see in these galleries. A plastic surgery outcome involves tissue that is well below the surface of the skin and a good plastic surgeon must be able to safely manipulate and sculpt it. Plastic surgeons study for years after the end of medical school so that they learn how to obtain the best results.
Moreover, being board certified in plastic surgery means that a doctor has met the very rigorous specifications of one of the nation’s most respected physicians’ organizations. Other types of doctors and surgeons may legally do certain cosmetic procedures, but they simply don’t have the training or experience that board certification in plastic surgery represents. We recommend very strongly that, whomever patients pick to do their procedures, they should only consider board certified plastic surgeons.
Dr. J is double board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. This means that his knowledge and abilities have the broad scope that allows him to deal with just about any contingency that can arise in the course of a procedure.
A Science and an Art
It’s obviously a top priority for a plastic surgeon to be skilled and knowledgeable enough to perform a procedure safely. However, without a strong aesthetic touch, the results of the procedure might not be as much to the patient’s liking – and, very obviously, the whole point of procedures is for patients to look and feel their best. Fortunately, when it comes to our work, patients say they are delighted with their outcomes. They say it to us, and they also say so on sites like Yelp and RealSelf. Dr. J is also frequently praised for his kind and sensitive bedside manner. He understands that getting a procedure impacting our appearance is a very personal matter, and he works hard to make sure that patients understand are as informed and comfortable as possible.
Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, please take a look at the relevant galleries at the top of this page. If you like what you see, Dr. J Plastic Surgery wants to hear from you.
