people think of medicine as an art form. To
many, it is a very cold and exact science,
leaving little room for such things as beauty
and aesthetics. But art is exactly what's taking
place in the Beverly Hills offices of Dr. Raja
Srour, a 30-year practitioner of cosmetic
surgery. Unlike most other surgeons, Dr. Srour
sees what he does as an art, requiring a keen
sense of aesthetics, an eye for beauty, and a
sound understanding of human anatomy. These,
along with good judgment, dexterity, and
creativity, are what elevates a good plastic
surgeon from the rank of a good technician to
the status of an artist.
Dr. Srour should know. For most of his adult
life, he has divided his time between his work
and his other passion, painting. His works grace
the walls of his Beverly Hills offices, and have
been donated to various charities to raise
funds. The dedication and attention to detail
that he brings to his paintings is also evident
in his work as a cosmetic surgeon. There was a
time when cosmetic surgery was reserved for the
very rich and vain. Those times are long gone
now. Today, a better educated general public
knows that the benefits of cosmetic surgery are
more than skin deep. Having fuller lips or a
tighter behind is now affordable and obtainable
for most people. And psychologically, cosmetic
surgery gives patients a powerful boost in
self-confidence. They look better, feel better,
and even perform better.
Body sculpting, nowadays is a process requested
by both men and women. Genetic factors, aging,
pregnancy or a marked weight loss can create
deformities that can be altered by liposuction,
excision and tightening of excess skin. Often
some of the fat removed can be transferred to
other deficient areas that need enhancement.
Thus Dr. Srour continues to make his mark in
cosmetic surgery by constantly seeking new
techniques in facial and body sculpting.
