This month, Dr Lewis Obi and staff would like to remind our patients that a healthy lifestyle goes a long way towards the prevention of all cancers. A high BMI, (obesity) is perhaps the most significant risk factor for breast cancer. Fat is related to high levels of estrogens and insulin-like growth factors associated with obesity. Diets high in red meats, carbs, sugars, fast foods, etc. are definitely risk factors for most cancers and other diseases. On the opposite side, there are specific biologic mechanisms which explain the protective effects of diets high in vegetables and fruits, vitamins, fiber,
supplements and a normal BMI.
LEADING THE FIGHT
Dr Lewis Obi has been on the forefront of reconstructive breast surgery for many years. Dr. Obi has introduced a number innovations that have integrated major new technology into his practice to help recovering breast cancer survivors return to their former selves.
During the month of October Dr. Obi will be providing free initial consultations and 3D imaging that allow patients to see the results of their breast procedure before surgery. This is a great opportunity to speak with a leading plastic surgeon about the breast procedure you’ve been considering for free!
