The Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon comments on a recent article that it's time that online trolls catch up with everyone else and get used to plastic surgery.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A May 10 article on

USA Today reports on how 21-year-old "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter responded to a trollish commenter on Instagram who rudely questioned her on the number of procedures she has had. The actress has previously gone public about breast reduction procedures she received some years ago and, hardly surprising in image-conscious Hollywood, the shapely young woman has lost some weight in more recent years. Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S. notes that he certainly agrees that any kind of body shaming is extremely poor behavior, the journalistic use of the term doesn't really fully describe the practice of criticizing public figures for work they may or may not have had done.

Dr. J notes that, in this particular case, Ariel Winters says that she hadn't even heard of the additional facial procedures the troll mentioned. However, the practice of suggesting that individuals may have a procedure usually without any real evidence and then treating that possibly fictitious treatment as if it's somehow wrong is really more about plastic surgery shaming. Just as with all other types of body-related shaming, he notes that mean-spirited commenters are simply trying to get attention for themselves by trying to make other people feel bad.

While speculation about which celebrity may have had a rhinoplasty (nose job), facelift, or breast augmentation is an old sport in the show business gossip pages, Dr. J says that much of the mystery around procedures has diminished in recent years to the point where anti-plastic surgery trolls end up receiving far more online ridicule than their famous targets. He adds that as plastic surgery and non-surgical procedures like Botox become ever more popular, people who criticize others for getting plastic surgeries are going to find out that people have come to see procedures as simply another way to maintain or approve an individual's appearance; like getting a new hairstyle or updating a wardrobe.

Dr. J notes that, while whether or not to go public with a procedure is entirely a matter for a patient to decide, the example of beloved public figures like Dolly Parton and the late Joan Rivers who both publicly discussed and often joked about their procedures is helping people to realize that, while plastic surgery may be a highly personal matter, the only shame involved should be on people who talk about it in order to be cruel to others, the doctor says.

Dr. J's qualifications as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon can be seen online. Interested readers may call his office at (310) 228-3151 to set an initial consultation.
