5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
When I went into Westlake dermatology I was very nervous but also excited at the same time. I chose Dr. Chuma Chike-Obi because I felt like he had the best results when I had looked him up on their website. We decided to do my upper and lower abdomen along with my waistline. On the day of the surgery you could only imagine how nervous I was! But the nurse was very nice and assured me that the...

I couldn't be happier with the results of my breast implants! I wish I hadn't wait so long to finally get it done. Dr. Chike-Obi and his staff are very personable, friendly, supportive, and professional. I recommend him to all of my friends and family considering plastic surgery. You can't go wrong with picking him as your plastic surgeon! I'm so so so pleased with my results. I went...

I'm a 40 year old mother of 2 daughters. I have always loved being well endowed in the chest until I realized that not only was I suffering from back pain, but I was starting to get the bra strap indentions on my shoulders! I wear a lot of sleeveless/shoulder exposing shirts and I sure as heck didn't want to see those durn indentions! Besides, when I took off my bra and the "girls" fell down...
5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo
About 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's (Hypothyroid) Disease & have been struggling with weight loss ever since. I've tried every diet (liquid, fruit, gluten-free... even went vegan for a year) & workout routine (weights, cardio, aerobic, etc...) imaginable. No matter what I tried or how much I worked out the weight wouldn't come off - even running 5-8 miles every day in addition...

50 + Much Needed in That Specific Area Due to Aging/gravity Small Thin Person but Mid Area Problematic! - Austin, TX
I'm big on fitness , workout all the time and eat healthy. Over the years it's gotten harder to keep abs looking tight and fit no matter how much I worked that area out! I've never had that problem in the past as I'm a fit, small boned and slim person. However, at some point as we age, losing some elasticity in the skin, gravity takes over as well as from having children in the past from the...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
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...

As a mom of 2, I'm sure some women can relate, our bodies are def not the same. I thought about getting implants and Dr. Chuma Chike-Obi was the best choice I could've made. He was there for the whole process, helped me with all my questions, was always there for my follow ups making sure everything went perfect! It's been more than a year now since my surgery and I'm very happy with my...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Like so many others I am completely fixated with this site! I am 44 years old, 5'4 barely, 145lbs give or take. I have been on medication for disc herniation and bone spurs in my upper neck and lower back since around 2006. I'm currently at a 36DD although I've never been truly measured. I have a short torso and frame so my breasts really look odd. I didn't realize how large I was until I was...
I hope to reduce the circumference of my upper thigh by 2 inches. I'm tired of ballooning up just at the top of my thighs when I stop exercising. When I break from heavy weight lifting and every third day of fat burning aerobics I just balloon up. This is my prob. area & I want to eliminate it. I can diet down the water weight of my thighs but seem to never ever budge the fat deposits at...
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
I'm 63 inches, 115 lbs, 12% body fat. I'm nervous because of how little body fat I have and since I'm a fitness model I need these boobs to look natural. (most women are at 20 - 35% body fat) My PS just did a fitness trainer 8 weeks ago and she looks great, but she's only at 25% body fat. My biggest questions at the preop will be my concern over my low body fat percentage and how to make sure...
