FIRST NATRELLE STYLE 410 “GUMMY BEAR” IMPLANT SURGERY IN JACKSONVILLE PERFORMED BY DR. LEWIS OBI
Last Wednesday, March 6, Dr. Lewis Obi performed the first breast augmentation with the use of the new Form Stable Natrelle Gummy Bear Implants. He was told by the Allergan representative that it was the first operation of it’s kind performed in her district which includes south Georgia and northeast Florida. Of significance is that Dr. Obi also performed a limited breast lift and inserted the implants through an areolar incision which rarely results in a noticeable scar. Because of the solid matrix filler of the Style 410 implants, the majority of plastic surgeons insert these implants through a long fold incision.
Dr. Lewis Obi is scheduled to appear on "The Morning Show” with Bruce Hamilton on Wednesday, March 13 at 8am to discuss the Gummy Bear implants. These implants have been used in Europe and Canada for more than 15 years with a patient satisfaction in excess of 95%.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Patrick Maxwell headed up the FDA study over a seven year period with 941 women which led to the FDA clearance for the Gummy Bears on February 21. The next day Dr. Lewis Obi was certified by Allergan and received his first implants 3 days later.
