Axillary Hyperhydrosis 
(Excessive underarm perspiration)
A new treatment with dual blend laser (SlimLipo™)
 
Axillary hyperhydrosis is caused by the sympathetic nervous system sending signals to the underarm sweat glands to keep producing sweat, which leaves people excessively sweaty.  Outside of the use of antiperspirants and various drugs, the only effective treatment has been the use of Botox injections which are expensive ($1000 or more per treatment) and must be repeated every six months. Palomar Medical introduced laser lipolysis with the SlimLipo platform almost three years ago and Dr. Lewis Obi was one of the first providers of this new technology. While presenting at an advanced symposium on March 12 in Dallas, Dr. Obi learned of the newest application of SlimLipo in the area of axillary hyperhydrosis.  Since the sweat glands reside in fatty tissue, ablation of these fat cells also reduces the ability of the sweat glands to function.  This treatment may be provided under local anesthesia during a lunch hour break with no down time.  Results appear to be more permanent than Botox treatments and at a cost of under $2000.

UPDATE ON AUTOGOLOUS FAT TRANSFER WITH LIPOKIT (Adivive™)

 

Palomar Medical has just renamed their Fat Processing Unit as Adivive™ instead of Lipokit.  To avoid confusion on our website, we will continue to use both names.  As we previously announced, the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic was the first facility in the United States to receive an FDA approved system which has been used to treat more than a dozen patients.  This system concentrates stem cells in adult fat to provide a cleaner and longer lasting natural filler for the face, breasts, and other areas of the body.  The new non invasive technique of facial rejuvenation "3D Spacelift" included Adivive™ fat transfer and/or SlimLipo™ neck tightening.  These procedures are performed without general anesthesia and most patients may return to work in 5 to 7 days.

Breast Augmentation and Slimlipo™ Combinations
Reduced Fees


During the spring and summer months these procedures are performed with up to a 20% reduction in our usual fees.  If performed together (eg: breast augmentation with Slimlipo™ of the abdomen and/or thighs) then there is an additional savings with the bonus of synergistic body sculpting result.  Moderate degrees of breast sag may also be treated with laser tightening by the Slimlipo™ laser.  In fact, Dr. Obi was the first plastic surgeon to present this Slimlipo™ application in breast surgery.  Fees for this combination procedures may be as low as $7000, whereas separately the cost would be in excess of $8500.  Call today for more information and booking a consultation.
