The Beverly Hill-based physician, known more casually as Dr. J, notes that holding certifications in both plastic surgery and general surgery allows for truly comprehensive care.

Dr. J notes that maintaining his ABS certification improves his ability to provide outstanding patient care.

Board certification is a highly rigorous process that tests the full range of a doctor’s knowledge, background, and qualifications.

Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., known more casually to his patients as Dr. J, has announced that he has renewed his board certification from the American Board of Surgery (ABS) as of December of 2016. Also a certified diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), Dr. J noted that he maintained his status as double-board certified plastic surgeon in order to ensure that his skills are truly complete and comprehensive so that he is able to deal with any situation that may arise during a procedure and provide consistently effective care.

Dr. J notes that, while many prospective plastic surgery patients have heard that they should only consider working with a board certified plastic surgeon, they may not fully understand the significance of board certification by one or more organizations. He adds that board certifications provide real evidence that a doctor is fully qualified to perform a broad range of procedures. Dr. J states that, board certification is a highly rigorous process that tests the full range of a doctor’s knowledge, background, and qualifications.

Dr. J adds that many plastic surgeons who are certified as plastic surgeons eventually allow their board certification in general surgery from the ABS to lapse. The doctor notes that, while being board certified in plastic surgery is crucial, it’s better if doctors also work to maintain a truly comprehensive understanding of the full range of surgical knowledge they need to perform all types of procedures. This underlines their ability to deal with any and all situations that might arise in the operating room or if issues arise following a procedure, while also allowing them to understand the entirety of a patient’s medical and aesthetic situation, Dr. J adds.

Dr. J also notes that he also works hard to ensure that he is fully aware and up to date on all of the latest medical innovations by staying involved with a wide variety of physicians’ organizations. Specifically, he notes that he is a fellow of both the American College of Surgeons and the International College of Surgeons. He adds that he is also a member of numerous physicians’ organizations, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the American Medical Association, the California Medical Association, the Los Angeles County Medical Association, and the National Cosmetic Network.

Dr. J concludes by noting that, while such procedures as buttock lifts, breast augmentations, rhinoplasties (nose jobs) and facelifts have never been safer, they are still surgery. They therefore require a physician who is both medically knowledgeable and competent, as well as possessing a strong aesthetic ability. Recognition by reputable physicians’ organizations remains one of the best tools plastic surgery patients have for determining that a surgeon is up to the task of helping them to look and feel their very best.
