 Dr. Lewis Obi Presenting at American Society of Plastic Surgeons Meeting in September

Dr. Lewis Obi will be the sole presenter at an expert's luncheon hosted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Denver next month.  The title of his presentation, "The New Facelift in the New Economy:  Combining Modalities for Customized Results" is indeed a very appropriate theme in light of our failing economy.  For many years, Dr. Lewis Obi has combined new technology with his time proven skills to accomplish optimal results for his patients.  As one of Palomar's primary providers of laser neck tightening (Lifesculpt) and more recently the use of stem cell rich processed fat (Adivive), non-surgical facial and neck rejuvenation is now possible.  These less invasive techniques unsure safety while decreasing both cost and down time for the patient. This unique combination of talent, experience and the mastery of new technology is why Plastic Surgery Practice magazine chose Dr. Lewis Obi for the their cover story in June.  "Aesthetic Warrior:  Lewis J. Obi, MD, stays very active on plastic surgery's front lines" was an appropriate title for the magazine cover.

New Facelift in the New Economy




 As a followup to the lead commentary entitled "The New Facelift in the New Economy...", it is appropriate to summarize recent advances in our plastic surgery practice.  Worldwide I was one of the first plastic surgeons to introduce LifeSculpt (SlimLipo) laser technology which has enhanced clinical results while reducing cost to the patient. In January, Palomar provided my clinic with the first FDA approved Adivive Fat Processing Unit which again provides patients with more choices both in the areas of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.  Our clinic is currently advancing the efforts to participate and promote research in the area of stem cells derived from adult fat. For decades we have been in the forefront of patient safety with the establishment of the first comprehensive AHCA licensed plastic surgery center.  Although our cost of operation has progressively increased, patient fees have remained flat for the past decade.  This information is significant because we are providing more advanced and enhanced care to our patients compared to ten years ago.

Reconstructive Breast Surgery 





 Breast reconstruction with transplanted fat should be performed only by trained plastic surgeons and warrants close follow-up.


A large study suggests that transplanting one's own fat to reconstruct the breast after mastectomy or lumpectomy is safe for women who have undergone breast cancer surgery, as sited in the August issue of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, the official journal of the board certified member organization American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).


Transferring fat to reconstruct the breast, so called "lipofilling," after breast cancer surgery leads to a low complication rate and does not affect the radiologic follow-up after breast-conserving surgery, according to Dr. Jean Yves Petit at the European Institute of Oncology, Milano. The most common treatment for breast cancer is lumpectomy with or without radiation and chemotherapy. Traditional reconstruction of post mastectomy patients today is the use of implants and or distant flaps. These procedures require multiple staged operations, prolonged recoveries and are very costly.  As an alternative autologous fat grafting may be performed in 2 or 3 short non-surgical sessions with minimal down time and at a fraction of the cost of traditional techniques.  An added benefit is that excess fat in unwanted areas may be removed as a positive side effect.
