Breast Augmentation

Dr. Chike-Obi is looking out for my ultimate satisfaction

My consultation was a 3 step process. First I met with the wonderful Meesha who explained the implants and procedures. Then I met with Dr. Chike-Obi's nurse who helped me wear the implants inside a trainer bra. We started with a small size and kept increasing implants until I wore a size that felt too big. Brought a male friend (ex-lover) who knew my body and was willing to feel and give...

Already Fit, Body Contouring - Austin, TX

I go in today to get Smart Lipo with Dr. Chike-Obi and I am nervous as shit. I'm having work done on my upper and lower abs and inner thighs. I am currently fit - 5'2", 130lbs and 22% body fat. When I tell people that I'm about to have this done, the first question is inevitably 'why?!' I'm looking forward to body contouring. I work out regularly (lifting weights and active lifestyle)...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr Chike-Obe, not only is he the best @what he does, he's on the cutting edge of his profession.

Breast Implant Revision

Gummy Bear Contoured Shape Implants: Natural Look & Very Happy - Austin, TX

Dr. Chike-Obi deserves much appreciation and praise. I had years of research and consults on my end regarding undergoing my second BA (my first BA being over 8 years ago). Since then my body has changed, technology has changed and I needed a well qualified surgeon to understand the natural full look I wanted to achieve. Dr. Chike-Obi was just that. I felt Dr. Chike-Obi was up to date with...

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation - Austin, TX

Dr. Chuma Chike-Obi was just awesome. He was always there since the whole process started. Going through any type of procedure is not easy and trusting your doctor is one, if not, the most important thing, I can say, I fully trusted him since the beginning.

Breast Reduction

10 Years of Chronic Back/neckpain. Hoping Breast Reduction Will Help - Austin, TX

I cannot say how much I adore this doctor!! He is so very personable and Professional. Every time we met he made sure every question I had was answered and has just a wonderful bedside manner. His assistants are also sweet and professional. He did an amazing job on my breasts. I have no complaints at all so far. My reaction to the tape and drains was nothing that he could have foreseen and he did a great job. After surgery he spent time with my parents who were waiting. At my check up he went out and spent time with my mother while I was getting dressed. He hugged us. I adore him!! The issues I had during recovery other than the reaction to tape was with the hospital staff. The night staff seemed uncaring as well as ineffective.
