The Obi Plastic Surgery center was the first comprehensive licensed plastic surgery center in Florida. The center has a unique 33 year track record of safety and delivery of quality care both in the field of reconstructive as well as cosmetic plastic surgery. A totally new paradigm for plastic surgery has been proposed for the future in order to adapt to any major changes in the American health care system. The goal is to continue providing a high level of care safely and at an affordable cost to our patients. However to maintain this legacy renewed efforts are ongoing for the addition of experienced professionals at all levels of staffing. Last year significant resources were dedicated not only towards technological devices such as the Slim Lipo laser but also maintenance of professional staffing. Similar investments are continuing with the future goals as outlined above.

This week Dr. Lewis Obi completed his 120th Slim Lipo case during the past nine months. More than 300 anatomic areas were treated since November 2008 establishing the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic as one of the senior and premier centers for the Palomar Life Sculpt Slim Lipo system. During the past two weeks, Dr. Obi was involved with the training and preceptorship of almost 20 plastic surgeons from not only the Jacksonville area, but from Illinois, Tennessee and other major Florida cities. Eminent plastic surgeons worldwide consult and visit with Dr. Obi on a regular basis not only for laser lipolysis technology but other major areas of plastic surgery. Dr. Lewis Obi will be one of the featured speakersfor Slim Lipo laser technology on November 14, 2009 at a major symposia in Fort Lauderdale.

Dr. Lewis Obi is continuing his efforts to expand and enhance his licensed surgery center, the Samuel Wells Surgicenter, through ongoing partnership efforts with premier talent in the field of reconstructive breast surgery. The Obi Plastic Surgery Center is actively involved not only with the most advanced aesthetic techniques such as Slim Lipo, breast augmentation and facial rejuvination but also in a wide array of reconstructive procedures. There is a unique synergism that occurs when providing both cosmetic and reconstructive services to our patients. Reconstructive patients often seek cosmetic procedures and similarly cosmetic patients occasionally require reconstructive surgery.
