The reasons for plastic surgery are diverse and varied, and often go against expectations

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Plastic surgery procedures are still sometimes stigmatized in our society, as some judgmental onlookers have wrongly tended to dismiss such operations as nothing more than self-involved acts of vanity. The truth, however, is that the reasons for plastic surgery vary wildly, are highly personal, and sometimes stem from much deeper reasons than one might expect. Some motivations for surgery, such as repair of disfiguring injuries or improving the shape of a patient's body, are more obvious, yet others are complex. Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad , aka Dr. J, a leading plastic surgeon in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area, has firsthand experience with the range of issues associated with a patient's desire to undergo surgery, and is working to alter common misconceptions about plastic surgery.

Studies make clear that one's ability to positively identify with their body image and sense of self plays a critical role in sustaining good mental health and high self-esteem. For example, while the term "gynecomastia" may not be well known, it's not uncommon for men to develop a buildup of excess breast tissue, as a result of hormonal changes or weight gain, which very often cannot be reversed through diet and exercise. Under such circumstances, plastic surgery is an effective option which is why men seeking to address gynecomastia in Beverly Hills and L.A. look to the expert care of Dr. J to help them overcome the embarrassment associated with larger male breasts and regain a positive connection with their bodies.

Childbirth is another factor that can change body image. Mothers know full-well that the demands and stresses placed upon their bodies during childbearing are extreme; nevertheless they are sometimes dismayed  by the extent of the changes. Rather than permanently losing this positive connection with their body, mothers often seek out procedures to restore their former image. Despite being a very common procedure, and one that receives significant media attention, breast augmentation is not the only type of breast-based plastic surgery. Breast reduction is very popular among women who may feel embarrassed by their larger bosoms or simply find them to be less than attractive or find that they get in the way of sports and other activities. It also often offers medical benefits in terms of alleviating back problems. To help women achieve the shape and breast size they feel to be right for their bodies Dr. J and his team of board certified surgeons provide a full range of breast alteration procedures for women, including reductions and Beverly Hills breast lifts.

Beauty is a very complex and subjective concept which differs significantly from person to person. As a result, people tend to have different ideas of what they want, or what they need, to feel beautiful and content with their bodies. For some, these ideas may seem out of reach which is why Dr. J offers a range of safe and proven treatment options from abdominoplasty to Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.
