Buttock Augmentation Tragedy Highlights the Importance of Only Considering Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, says Dr. J Plastic Surgery
Date:8/15/2017

An August 2 article on Newsweek describes the case of a woman who fell into a coma and died after receiving silicone injections for buttock augmentation, performed by an individual posing as a plastic surgeon. The procedure was performed in the alleged perpetrator’s apartment after the victim was fetched from a neighborhood Dunkin Donuts that had served as the phony practitioner’s “waiting room.” Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., known to his patients as Dr. J, says that the case is a sobering reminder of the importance of patients ensuring that they are working with a fully credentialed, board certified plastic surgeon at all times. While the “Dunkin Donuts butt injections” case is fairly extreme, it points out the reality that, even though plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures are extremely safe when performed by trained and experienced plastic surgeons, they are not to be taken too lightly.

Dr. J adds that patients need to carefully research their choice of a doctor and pay attention to any warning signs that something is wrong. He notes that these signs are not always as obvious as working out of a home or using a fast-food restaurant as a waiting room. Dr. J says that the smart thing to do is carefully research the doctor, which is now easier than ever thanks to reputable social media sites like Yelp and RealSelf. It’s a good way to hear from other patients, especially as reliable personal recommendations are not always easy to come up with.

On a slightly different topic, Dr. J notes that anyone suggesting buttock augmentation by injecting silicone is a very bright red flag that something is wrong. Silicone implants -- not injections – for buttock augmentation were once common, but today the standard treatment is to use fat transfer techniques, which use unwanted fat taken from one part of the body and use it to sculpt a more curvaceous and pleasing backside. (This is the procedure most people refer to as “the Brazilian butt.”) It is a delicate and treatment that is best done by a doctor who is not only highly qualified, but also one who possesses a strong aesthetic sensibility.

Dr. J adds that it’s crucial for patients considering any plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure to take sufficient time to really consider their options. They should make sure they are certain of a doctor’s qualifications, and take a good look at before-and-after pictures on their web site, and thoroughly discuss the likely outcomes with their physician.

Dr. J is double-board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Readers who would like to learn more about Dr. J and his qualifications are welcomed to call his office at 310-683-0200. They can also visit his site to learn more and check out his many before-and-after galleries, as well as finding him on Yelp and RealSelf.
