Perhaps you've heard of the current healthcare bill before the US Senate. Page 2045, Section 9017, Excise Tax on Elective Cosmetic Medical Procedures included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act translates to a tax on ALL cosmetic procedures as partial payment for the healthcare overhaul our current administration is attempting to implement.
So what's the problem?
YOU would be paying the tax, the FIRST time this country has levied a tax on patients for medical procedures.
This is a discriminatory tax. According to the Aesthetic Society Annual Statistics, 91% of all cosmetic procedures are requested by women.
This will not have considerable consequences on the wealthiest patients but, as usual, affects the middle class. Working women, soccer moms, and scores of others who carefully save and budget to improve their appearance and self esteem will be penalized for doing so.
Procedures such as breast reduction that have been cited in the literature for improving self esteem and quality of life would be taxed as well.
This provision places physicians like me in the role of tax collector and holds physicians liable should an individual fail or refuse to pay the tax.
Is that the relationship you want with your medical provider?
Please help us stop this silly and penetrative tax. Contact our Florida senators by clicking on the links below -
Tell them that you are against this tax - together we can fight for your right to no government interference in medical care and stop this discriminatory measure against women!

Dr. Obi has always kept-up with current techniques in plastic surgery along with personally developing new techniques in his specialty. A good example is the patientʼs photographs below taken at two weeks post surgery.
The procedures performed includes Dr. Obi's technique of brow lifting (developed 25 years ago), upper blepharoplasties, facelift and Slim Lipo tightening of the neck. The so-called "life style facelift" is slightly less-invasive but with more limited results and with less enduring improvement. There is no significant difference in down time nor cost to the patient with the more clinically established procedures.

Every family and work place is replete with victims of this epidemic disease. Jacksonville leads the nation with dedicated professionals and volunteers as well as expansive breast care facilities. These resources continue to expand and consolidate because of our broad based support.
For additional information in any of these areas feel free to contact Dr. Lewis Obi or Carole Tindell, Clinic Director, at 904 399-0905 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Author's Note: This post is intended to shed light on the recent achievements within the breast augmentation, reconstruction and implant industry as well as Dr. Obi's personal contributions to these studies and achievements.
Also of significance in the area of breast enlargement in Jacksonville, Dr. Lewis Obi has made significant contributions both with saline and silicone gel implants. In the area of saline implants, Dr. Lewis Obi was one of the early American pioneers of this device. In 2007 Dr. Obi completed 15 years of study with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an adjuvant study center with the use of silicone gel breast implants. These studies resulted in approval by the FDA for a much larger population of patients to choose silicone gel implants. Today the majority of both cosmetic and reconstructive breast patients elect to use the modern generation gel implants. Allergan brand breast implants, Natrelle, are offered by our practice as well as the specialized Mentor breast implants. For more than 35 years Dr. Lewis Obi has been performing cutting edge breast reconstructive as well as breast cosmetic procedures.
