The Beverly Hills based surgeon notes that plastic surgery’s popularity has become a truly global reality, encompassing people from all nations and all walks of life.

The world's largest nation's increasingly well-off population is pursuing more plastic surgery than ever.

Dr. J notes that caution on the part of prospective plastic surgery patients is highly justified whether procedures are to be obtained in Beijing or Beverly Hills.

An article in the ChinaDaily reports that China’s online plastic surgery marketplace, Yuemai.com, is opening up ten brick-and-mortar centers in the near future. The article adds that the company took the step as result of growing demand from an increasingly image-conscious and affluent Chinese population. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon known more casually as Dr. J, notes that the expansion of plastic surgery-based businesses is to be expected in light of the growing popularity and social acceptance of procedures aimed at helping people to improve their appearance. He adds that this is now true in nearly the entire industrialized world.

At the same time, Dr. J points out that not all is perfect in the international plastic surgery scene. The ChinaDaily article notes that “the main problems facing China’s cosmetic surgery industry are nontransparent costs and lack of trust on quality.” Dr. J notes that caution on the part of prospective plastic surgery patients is highly justified whether procedures are to be obtained in Beijing or Beverly Hills. He strongly advises women and men interested in a plastic surgery procedure to only consider doctors with the proper credentials. In the U.S., this means working with board certified plastic surgeons, preferably those with a proven track record of experience on the specific procedure or group of procedures a prospective patient is considering, Dr. J adds.

Dr. J notes that he regularly sees patients not only from throughout his home base of Southern California, but from across the United States and worldwide. The doctor, who has appeared on such television programs as MTV’s True Life and Bravo’s The Shahs of Sunset, cautions Americans who are considering obtaining plastic surgery in other nations to be extremely wary of so-called medical tourism, particularly in an effort to save significant amounts of money.

Dr. J adds that, while he understands that it’s only natural for patients to be concerned with costs, using cut-rate practitioners with questionable backgrounds can be truly dangerous. Moreover, aside from the heartache and stress involved, correcting botched procedures can often be vastly more expensive than simply obtaining a procedure from a fully qualified physician.Finally, he notes that patients should also never assume that, whether patients are interested in breast augmentation surgeries or facial rejuvenation, the costs of plastic surgeries are excessive. Indeed, he adds, patients often find that the costs of surgery with a leading doctor to be lower than they imagined.

Dr. J’s practice is based on Rodeo Drive in the heart of Beverly Hills and he is board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.
