Our staff, pictured above, in attendance at the reception for Dr. Murray on the 9th of December where more than 200 guests and dignitaries attended the event. In addition to introducing Dr. Murray, the guests were provided with an art and clinic tour of our 12,000 square foot facility. Attendees from Los Angeles, New York, Boston and other distant locations were impressed with the display of world class art at the clinic. A Harpist (pictured right) and Violist played in concert with the other festivities of the evening. The Samuel Wells Surgicenter at the clinic displayed the latest laser technology in the area of laser lipolysis (Slim Lipo platform) as well as the Novodaq Spy imaging system. Dr. John Murray, Dr. Lewis Obi and Memorial Medical Center will be the first Jacksonville providers of this revolutionary technology vital for enhancing results of reconstructive breast procedures.
Our November 17th blog mentioned the prospect of the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic providing patients with the latest technology regarding the use of autologous fat fillers. Last week our facility was informed that we will be among the first providers of this new science. This will provide our patients with the option of large volume fillers for the face and other areas of the body utilizing the patient’s own fat cells. With this advanced procedure, fat may be taken from unwanted areas, concentrated into stem-cell rich fat and simultaneously transferred as a natural filler with more predictable longevity. As with the Palomar Slim Lipo technique of liposuction that Dr. Lewis Obi has performed on 250 patients during the past two years, this technique of fat transfer may be performed with minimal downtime. Both Dr. John Murray and Dr. Lewis Obi will be providing these procedures on patients at our Samuel Wells Surgicenter beginning next month. The applications of adult stem cell fat transfers in the mastectomy patient in the future is very exciting.
