He served as chief of surgery and trauma medical director at these posts and was an executive member of the board of directors.
Meet Dr. Obasi: a cosmetic surgeon who helps people look their natural best!
When I went to medical school, I have always been interested in how to improve the well-being of people. Not just the physical aspects, but also to give them that sense of well-being — to improve the way they think about themselves.
So after I finished from medical school and went into surgery, I finished my surgical residency at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. I did not go immediately to cosmetic surgery for obvious reasons. I practiced as a general surgeon, trauma surgeon, even moonlighted as an ER doctor for a while before proceeding to California, which is the center of cosmetic and plastic surgery, to do my fellowship there.
So, the interest to improve people has always driven me. If you look at my website and what I always believed — we try to make people look their natural best. We promise and we assure you, we just try to make you look your natural best and it’s what we do at Noble Cosmetic Surgery.
The drive to make people feel alive again is what makes me do what I do and what makes me enjoy being a cosmetic surgeon.
