A Survivor’s Plastic Surgery Highlights the More Serious Side of the Specialty, says Dr. J Plastic Surgery

An August 6 article on WAMC reports on the pro-bono plastic surgery given to young filmmaker Yannick Kabuguza. The lone survivor at the age of four of a horrific 1994 machete attack during the genocidal Rwandan Civil War, Mr. Kabuguza still had a prominent scar running across his face, as a well as a disfigured ear. The issue was not only his appearance as such, but the fact that the young man’s scars were a reminder of a terrifying period that Rwandans prefer not to be reminded of. After a chance encounter put him in touch with American NGOs, the young man obtained a pro-bono plastic surgery at a New York State hospital, which will no doubt improve his odds of career and personal success. Beverly Hills based plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., better known to his patients as Dr. J, says that the case is an outstanding example of a less glamorous, but extremely important, side of plastic surgery.

Dr. J says there’s no denying the popularity of procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty (nose job), and facelifts which are often about already attractive people fine-tuning their appearance. However, the tradition of plastic surgery also involves procedures designed to correct deformities and other issues that can seriously reduce an individual’s quality of life. Large facial scars resulting from trauma are one good example, says Dr. J, but often congenital deformities, such as cleft lips that can also threaten the physical health of a small child, can be corrected with plastic surgery. The doctor himself has performed many of these procedures on a pro-bono basis to young patients in developing countries as part of the well-known charitable organization Operation Smile.

Other procedures also have a combined medical and cosmetic benefit. Dr. J notes. While most people know that rhinoplasties can help with deviated septums, fewer realize that many women receive breast reductions for multiple reasons. He notes that the procedure can be primarily about a woman’s preference regarding her appearance or, as in many younger patients, to avoid unwanted attention. However, the doctor adds that very large breasts can also lead to back pain for many women and can also make it very difficult to participate in certain sports; he adds that many of his patients have said that their reductions have resulted in a dramatic improvement in the quality of their lives.

Dr. J is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Interested readers can read about Dr. J’s qualifications as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, or call his office at 310-683-0200.
