BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A May 16 article on Daily
Dr. J says that with all the publicity devoted to elective procedures such as breast and buttock augmentation, the fact that plastic surgery is a serious medical discipline largely devoted to treating serious medical issues tends to get lost in the public discourse. He notes that, while he's very proud of his work helping Los Angeles-area patients improve their appearance and feel more comfortable confident, he is also proud of the work he has done that has helped both children and adults to live healthier and happier lives. Pro-bono work in Peru helping children with cleft palates – and, in one case a child suffering from a severely disfiguring dog bite – with the charity, Operation Smile, has helped him to never forget that every single procedure is a matter of enormous importance in the life of a patient, he says.
Even routine plastic surgeries that can be obtained for cosmetic reasons, such as a rhinoplasty (nose job), says Dr. J, often also have very real medical reasons behind them in terms of respiratory issues. He adds that breast reductions are frequently performed to treat back pain, and reconstructive procedures for women who have had mastectomies to treat breast cancer is actually mandated under federal law to be covered by health insurance due to its importance in helping cancer survivors to fully heal, says the doctor. The bottom line, Dr. J says, is that plastic surgery is one of the most demanding and powerful of all medical disciplines and the vast majority of people who receive it will never, ever be on TMZ or a reality television program. He notes that many of the children he treated in Peru might not even own a television.
