A Tribute to Jim Gandolfini (9/18/61 - 6/19/2013)

On the set of “Lonely Hearts” 2006

I first met Jim Gandolfini on the set of Lonely Hearts seven years ago. Ironically, the night I met Jim was during the sequence shot on the campus of the old John Gorrie Junior High School where I attended as a teenager. My wife Myra and I next saw Jim at the memorial for Jett Travolta in 2009 and just by chance we sat with Jim and his new wife Deborah Lin. We apparently bonded because the four of us talked for more than an hour in John and Kelly’s living room.

John had told me that “their past was very connected" and his dad knew Jim’s father and sold him tires.  He also said Jim told him that he was his inspiration to get into the business as he would see pictures of him on the wall from movies.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences are extended to Jim Gandolfini’s wife, children and family...and also to Kelly, John, Ella and Ben.

Summer Skincare Series #1...Summer is Here and so is Melanoma

The summer solstice marks the moment of the year when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted most toward the sun, but it's also an opportunity for fans of ancient religions, nature photographers and everyone from around the globe to celebrate the first day of summer.  Proper skin care is one of the most important ways to not only take care of yourself, but to maintain lasting, youthful looks. Now that summer is here, we all want to have that beautiful beach-bronzed skin – but at what cost? 

Every year, the rate of melanomas and skin cancer increase at an alarming rate as a result of not taking proper measures with the care of the largest organ in the body - our skin. What is alarming is that Dr. Lewis Obi examined and or treated more than thirty skin cancer/melanoma patients during the month of June. Several of these patients have been cancer free and followed by Dr. Lewis Obi more than 30 years. 

During the first twenty years of my practice, almost all melanomas were treated by plastic surgeons.” stated Dr. Obi. Because of changes in referral patterns and insurance policies, the vast majority of patients are deprived of a plastic surgeon treating their skin cancers. A plastic surgery choice is particularly important with cancers of the face and of any melanoma which usually requires wider excisions. This past week, one of Dr. Obi’s close friends was diagnosed with a melanoma by her dermatologist and not given a choice to see a plastic surgeon. It is the recommendation of the ASPS and Dr. Lewis Obi that patients assume a pro active position with their health care providers. That is exactly what the patient friend of Dr. Obi insisted on and therefore treated by a plastic surgeon. For more information, refer to blog of April 17, 2012.

Greater Jacksonville Society of Plastic Surgeons Presentation


Dr. Lewis Obi shared his results with colleagues last night at the bimonthly meeting of the Greater Jacksonville Society of Plastic Surgeons. The meeting was sponsored by the Allergan Academy who also featured guest speakers Dr. William Adams from Dallas and Dr. Gloria Duda from Washington, D.C. Both Dr. Adams and Dr. Duda were part of the 10 year multi-center study which resulted in FDA approval  3 1/2 months ago. Dr. Obi was awarded the first 410 implants in Jacksonville and to date has treated twelve of his patients.

Shortly after becoming a Natrelle 410 provider, Dr. Lewis Obi acquired the Canfield Vectra XT 3D imaging system which provides patients with 3D images of their results prior to surgery. This advanced imaging is also available for both body sculpting and facial surgery procedures. It is particularly effective in projecting results for procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose job), chin augmentation and face lifts.

For a demonstration of the Vectra XT go to:
