In the midst of turbulent economic times, fewer patients are heading to the plastic surgeon's office to sign up for the latest plastic surgery procedure. However, some doctors are forging ahead with their business plans and opening up treatment centers in some of the world's most prestigious locations.
The Ocean Blue Plastic Surgery Center in Miami hosted its grand opening on November 19, 2008, a full service cosmetic surgery center that will now join the ranks of other high-end plastic surgery centers around the city. The event allowed guests to learn about the services and packages offered, and meet the director of the center and the staff in person.
The center is located on Brickell Avenue just minutes from the beach and offers a wide range of surgical and non-surgical procedures for patients who want to enhance or drastically change their appearance.
Miami plastic surgeon Anire Okpaku, M.D., the director and lead surgeon of the center, is now offering a number of popular procedures including breast lifts, tummy tucks, facelifts and rhinoplasty. Ocean Blue Plastic Surgery is one of the few venues to find the increasingly popular Brazilian butt augmentation procedure. Dr. Okpaku explains that he is 'known' for his exclusive Brazilian butt agumentation procedure that uses real fat to create natural results.
Patients interested in a 'quick lift' can choose from non-invasive treatments such as facials, chemical peels or microdermabrasion. The center also extends low-interest patient financing plans for those who may need some help paying for their procedure during the challenging economic times.
Miami is home to many world-renown plastic and cosmetic surgeons, and continues to be a popular destination for cosmetic surgery travel packages. Many medical spas in the area also offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments just to keep up with demand; the recent opening of the Ocean Blue Plastic Surgery center now gives locals and visitors more options for facial surgery, breast enlargement and body contouring procedures.
