Jamaican Boy's Post-Dog Attack Procedures Highlight the Less Well-Known Side of a Plastic Surgeon's Work, says Dr. J Plastic Sur

Jamaican Boy's Post-Dog Attack Procedures Highlight the Less Well-Known Side of a Plastic Surgeon's Work, says Dr. J Plastic Surgery

Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. J comments on a recent article that the case of little Mickele Allen reminds him of his own experience performing emergency plastic surgery on a little boy following a dog-attack in Peru.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --  A November 23 article on WABC Eyewitness News reports on the case of five-year-old Mickele Allen, who was attacked by five pit bull terriers in his native Jamaica. Fortunately, the boy was rescued by his brother and local doctors, but still badly injured with numerous disfiguring injuries. Mickele was taken to a hospital in the Bronx, New York, where he was seen to by the plastic surgeon who had raised the money to pay for the surgery. The young boy is now reported to be making excellent progress. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon 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 an outstanding reminder of the less often discussed area of reconstructive plastic surgery that is simply about allowing patients to live normal lives.

Dr. J notes that the news story contains echoes of his experience several years while on a trip to Peru to perform pro-bono work for the charitable organization, Operation Smile. The widely respected NGO provides free plastic surgery services to children in less developed areas of the world. While most of the procedures Dr. J worked on involved correcting such common but debilitating childhood deformities as cleft lips, he notes that there was one¬ occasion where his work was far more dramatic. In this instance, a small local boy needed emergency treatment after being attacked by a feral dog. Once the child was stabilized, it was clear that, in addition to lifesaving procedures, the small boy was going to need emergency plastic surgery if he was going to have a normal life. Fortunately, Dr. J was there and was able to see to the boy's needs. Dr. J says that, if a qualified plastic surgeon had not been there, there was a good chance the child would have been saddled with major disfigurements indefinitely.

Dr. J notes that, while most people think of procedures like breast augmentation or facial rejuvenation when they hear about plastic surgery, the specialty came into its own correcting serious disfigurements sustained by World War I soldiers. Dr. J notes that plastic surgery is one of the most challenging and dynamic of all medical specialties and that – whether the procedure is reconstructive or purely elective and cosmetic – it boils down to helping people develop the confidence they need to make the most from their lives.

Interested readers who would like to find out if a plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure is right for them can call (310) 228-3151 to learn more. Dr. J's qualifications as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, double-board certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery can be seen on his website.
