Stem Cell Enhanced Plastic Surgery

Lewis J. Obi, M.D., F.A.C.S.As the founder and Medical Director of Pangenics Regenerative Center and pioneer in the preparation and use of stem cells in plastic surgery, Dr. Lewis J. Obi has developed a number of exclusive stem cell enhanced plastic surgery procedures for the face, breasts and body.

Dr. Obi is a native of Jacksonville who graduated Cum Laude from the University of Florida after serving in the U. S. Marine Corps. He then graduated with honors; (AOA) from the University of Miami Medical School and completed his internship in the U. S. Navy.

After many years of residency training in general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery and hand surgery, he launched his private practice; Obi Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville marking another new beginning.

Stem Cells in Aesthetic ProceduresDr. Obi has pioneered many unique laser techniques and exclusive plastic surgery procedures that are enhanced with the patient’s own mesenchymal stem cells. These include the use of lasers and stem cell procedures for non-invasive breast surgery and breast reconstruction, non-invasive facelift and fat transfer. These advancements have garnered Dr. Obi international recognition as a leading stem cell plastic surgeon. In fact, Dr. Obi authored an entire chapter in the first text book on the use of stem cells in aesthetic plastic surgery; Stem Cells in Aesthetic Procedures, (Download PDF): Art, Science and Clinical Techniques. The book was first published in 2014.

Stem Cell Enhanced Plastic Surgery Procedures

Combine Stem Cell Joint Therapy with Any Stem Cell Enhanced Plastic Surgery Procedure and Save!

Preparing your own fat for any of the below enhanced plastic surgery procedures includes harvesting your fat and concentrating the stem cells before fat transfer. And our advanced methods of fat transfer results in increased survival of the grafted fat. In recent years, many patients who were originally interested in stem cell therapy for joint conditions also added one or more of the stem cell enhanced fat grafting procedures listed below.

Stem Cell Enhanced Facelift

OperaLift

Stem Cell Facelift

The OperaLift is performed by removing “Unwanted” fat from the abdomen and converting the fat into a stem cell concentrated fat graft. There are various levels of the OperaLift procedure, some of which combine specialized fat grafting with PRP, (Platelet Rich Plasma) and additional stem cells. The non-surgical Slimlipo laser liposuction is used to tighten sagging neck skin.

Stem Cell Enhanced
Breast Reconstruction

Also unique to Dr. Obi’s plastic surgery practice is the use of stem cell enriched adipose body fat to enhance breast surgery. Breast augmentations are performed with scarless areolar incisions that result in significantly less visible scaring. For patients with breast sag, the SlimLipo laser is often used to tighten the brassiere and lateral breast. Your own stem cell enriched body fat can also be used to further contour the breasts. This procedure produces a more natural appearance and is a viable option for women who wish to have their breast(s) reconstructed after mastectomy or serious accident.

Fat Transfer and Body Sculpting

Stem Cell Enhanced Fat Transfer to the face and other areas is often combined with SlimLipo Body Sculpting. The Slimlipo laser combines the benefits of a dual frequency laser that melts unwanted fat and simultaneously tightens skin. SlimLipo is unique to Dr. Lewis Obi’s practice providing minimal downtime and optimal safety. Also, patients enjoy significant savings when combining these unique stem cell and laser procedures.

In 2008 Dr. Lewis Obi collaborated with Palomar Medical Technology in the development of the SlimLipo Laser. He then became one of the first providers and instructors in the use of the SlimLipo laser.  Shortly afterwards, Dr. Obi met two international stem cell pioneers who developed and published multiple techniques in stem cell fat grafting, (Dr. Hee Young Lee of Seoul Korea and Dr. Kotaro Yoshimura of Tokyo Japan). Dr. Obi was then asked to write chapter 29, (Specialized Stem Cell Fat Transfer to Face) in a major plastic surgery text book.
