5 out of 5 stars 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. He is extremely personable, professional and answered all my questions through out the entire process. He made sure I could reach him anytime with questions or concerns regarding my surgery before and after. He also got back to me in a reasonably quick response on any issues or concerns between his super busy surgery/patient seeing schedules. I just can't express enough what a fabulous/brilliant Plastic Surgeon he is PLUS a wonderful, kind and caring Dr. That he is as well!!!

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 - 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.
