Looking Your Best - A Comprehensive Guide to Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Written by the Experts, 2006

The following is an excerpt from the book Looking Your Best - A Comprehensive Guide to Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Written by the Experts which features a chapter composed by Dr. Obi. 2006

"Plastic Surgery? What exactly does this surgical specialty encompass and what are its origins? Is it a surgical subspecialty that is primarily centered around the use of artificial materials or does the term plastic have a more primitive origin? Plastos is derived from the Greek word meaning “to mold” or “give form.” However the term “plastic surgery” was not coined until 1818 by German surgeon Von Graefe in his book entitled Rhinoplastik. Plastic Surgeon Lewis Obi delved and investigated this query half a century ago when he became interested in the field of plastic surgery while serving with the Marines during the Korean War. His medical school paper entitled “History of Rhinoplasty - An Epitome of Plastic Surgery” was written in 1965 and is a short but comprehensive 5000 year review of the history of Plastic Surgery. As the word “plastos” implies, plastic surgery was founded on the principles of reconstructive surgery as opposed to the modern day assumption that plastic surgeons are primarily cosmetic surgeons...

Aesthetic Warrior, 2011

Lewis J. Obi, MD, stays very active on plastic surgery's front lines
Written by Amy Di Leo

The following is an excerpt taken from the June 2011 issue of Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine

With a career that spans decades and includes military duty during two wars, Lewis J. Obi, MD, gives new meaning to the expression, "Never give up." With all he has achieved both in his career and through his myriad hobbies—which includes art collecting, marathon running, and martial arts—some might stop or at least slow down, but not this Jacksonville, Fla, physician. As a teacher, trainer, lecturer and researcher of new technologies, this veteran board-certified plastic surgeon, who started out a high school dropout, is just beginning.

A young Lewis Obi was bored in school, didn't attend much, and instead found a way to bring home money to help support his family—his mom, dad, five brothers, and two sisters...

Cosmetic Surgery & Beauty, Issue 57, August – October 2012

In the Name of Medicine & Art, 2007

A Collection of Lewis Obi, MD
Written by Elizabeth Sekine

Excerpt taken from North Florida Doctor Magazine - March 2007 Issue
Lewis J. Obi believes medicine is truly an art and of all the various specialties plastic surgery stands out as symbolizing medicine’s contribution to art. For more than four decades the cover of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has featured art with informative narrations. The father of modern medicine, Sir William Osler, proposes “A way of life” in his lecture to the graduating class of 1913 at Yale University. Dr. Obi cites Osler’s treatise as an assertion that physicians should live their lives in an artful way. Osler further stated that, “The practice of medicine is an art, based on science.”

Dr. Obi, a Jacksonville plastic surgeon, has always strived to live life and perform his craft in an artful way. His attempts at defining what art is or means have been diverse and numerous. Dr. Obi quotes one of his favorite artists, American Modernist Manierre Dawson...

Semper Fi, 2008

Distinguished plastic surgeon and art collector credits the Marine Corps for teaching him skills necessary for combat and compassion.
Written by Dr. Lewis Obi

Excerpt taken from Jacksonville Magazine's 904 - March/April 2008 Issue

"The best deal I ever made was pleading my service to America and enlisting in the United States Marine Corps. Not only did I have the honor of defending the greatest country in the world, but my training as a Marine gave me the wisdom, courage, discipline and sensitivity to chart a thrilling and challenging destiny. Being a Marine led me to the rewarding path of becoming a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and the found of Obiarts, an international art corporation."
Obi, Lewis. "Semper Fi." 904 March/April 2008: 86 - 87

To Each Their Own - An update on platelets, fibroblasts, and fat.

Lewis J. Obi, MD, comments on the unique filtering mechanism of the Adivive™ Fat Transfer System.

The following is an excerpt taken from The March 2012 issue of PSP

Another fat grafting system that is changing the face of adipose tissue is the Adivive™ Fat Transfer System, marketed in the United States by Palomar Medical, Burlington, Mass. Adivive is described as an integrated system that uses a unique filtering mechanism and high G-force centrifugation to yield a higher quality of adipose tissue for reinjection. “The amount of fat that survived from fat transfer has traditionally been unpredictable and often discouraging. The innovative Adivive technology filters the fat to its cellular components, and by doing so, it may encourage the fat cells to more reliably perform normal subcellular activities, thus improving chances of their survival and the cosmetic result,” says Jacksonville, Fla, plastic surgeon Lewis J. Obi, MD, FACS.

The Resident Community News, 2011

Lewis J. Obi, MD FRSA

The following is an excerpt taken from an issue of The Resident News

Often my friends and patients have asked “Why did you become a plastic surgeon and how did you channel your creative talents into your life’s work?” Five years ago author Sean McManus wrote an article about me entitled “Serendipitous Journey - DR LEWIS OBI SYMBOLIZES the INTEGRATION of ART AND MEDICINE”. Ever since I can remember, I had a love for art, architecture, music and medicine. Only after joining the Marine Corps at age 16 and becoming exposed to horrific scenes of war victims did I develop a resolve to become a plastic surgeon My Marine Corps experience and discipline led me on to the “Serendipitous Journey” that included almost 20 years of educational preparation which continues today...
