Dr. Obi is a Jacksonville plastic surgeon who has been helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals and self confidence for years. His commitment to perform plastic and reconstructive surgery using the safest and most advanced techniques is evident in his involvement in the development and pioneering implementation of equipment, products and techniques used today by top plastic surgeons around the world.
Among his most notable advancements in plastic surgery was his partnership with Palomar in the development of it’s SlimLipo/LifeSculpt Laser Lipo Platform, a dual frequency lipo laser capable of simultaneously melting fat and tightening skin more effectively than other leading lipo lasers, even to this day. Dr. Obi was one of the first plastic surgeons in the U.S. to use saline breast implants in breast augmentation, breast reconstruction and breast lift procedures. His most recent major contribution to plastic surgery is improvement to traditional fat transfer by significantly improving the survival rates of transferred fat with nutrients and platelet rich plasma, (PRP). A patient’s own body fat can now be used in place of artificial fillers to sculpt and enlarge breasts and as a natural filler for the face.
These are just a few of the reasons why, thousands of men and women have chosen and often return and refer friends to Dr. Obi for their plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments.
