Article on Lifetime’s New “Atlanta Plastic” Reality Series Underlines the Diversity of Today’s Plastic Surgery Patients, Says Plastic Surgeon Dr. J

As reported in a July 29 post on the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the new Lifetime reality series, “Atlanta Plastic” is getting attention for moving outside traditional ethnic stereotypes when it comes to who performs and who receives plastic surgery, with its predominantly African-American cast of doctors and patients. Beverly Hills based plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., called Dr. J by patients and coworkers, points out that he has long observed that his patients come from just about all backgrounds and walks of life, and that the diversity of people who are interested in procedures is only increasing.

Dr. J notes that one of the interesting aspects of the show is its focus on ideas of beauty as it relates to ethnicity, a reality the doctor is very familiar through his multi-ethnic patient base. The surgeon, who is Persian-American, is familiar with the issue, and he has long advocated procedures such as ethnic rhinoplasty, which seek to improve the appearance of the patient while also honoring his or her national or racial background. It’s true, notes Dr. J, that patients often feel conflicted about receiving a plastic surgery, fearing that it may in some way be seen as attempt to flee from their own particular ethnic background. The doctor says he works closely with his patients to fashion results that will make them feel more comfortable about who they are as a unique individual, instead of trying to impose some highly dubious universal standard of beauty.

Dr. J also points out that many of today’s most popular procedures have been popularized by superstars from diverse backgrounds. For example, the Brazilian style buttock lift is often sought by patients inspired by the curvaceous appearance of Armenian-American super-celebrity Kim Kardashian and Trinidad-born rapper Nicki Minaj, who is of Indian and African ancestry. Dr. J, who employs a liposuction procedure in Beverly Hills at his offices to obtain the transferred body fat he uses in this form of buttock augmentation, notes that the procedure is sought out by women of every ethnic group.

He also emphasizes that patients are not only moving beyond ethnic stereotypes, but also outdated social categories. More men than ever, for example are getting beyond the idea that plastic surgery is somehow only for females, obtaining procedures ranging from rhinoplasty and facelifts, to breast reduction procedures to deal with oversize male breasts (gynecomastia). Dr. J also says that he has noticed that some people also tend to imagine that procedures are intended only for celebrities or the very wealthy. He notes that today’s procedures are accessible for people of ordinary means and his patients range from lawyers and executives to teachers, assistants, and construction workers.

Dr. J says that he hopes that viewers of “Atlanta Plastic” get the message that plastic surgeries are truly for all kinds of people, and that anyone who wants procedures ranging from breast augmentation to eyelid lifts can obtain one. To learn more about plastic surgery or to schedule a free initial consultation, patients can call 310-993-3800 or visit the doctor’s website at
