I first saw the ad for this place in Houston Magazine and started my research about the company, the procedure and the doctors. I love what I found out and decided to make my appointment with Dr. Cortes. From the first time I walked into this place, I felt welcomed by Cindy. Dr. Cortes was gracious, knowledgeable and professional. He asked me about what was that I wanted to accomplish and told me everything I needed to know about the outcome and the procedure. I did not feel pushed or rushed to make any decisions at the moment. On the day of my surgery (two weeks after my consultation,) I took a friend for consultation and she felt so good about Dr. Cortes that she is going to see him soon for her procedures. Nurse was extremely kind, understanding, and helpful that made the whole day feel comfortable and less nerving. She held my hand, which made me relaxed during the procedure. She took care of me with kindness and beautiful smile. On my first follow up visit, I am taking another friend for consultation with Dr. Cortes, and I know that she will feel the same about him as I did. As for the procedure, it is a little uncomfortable when getting numb, but bearable. I took no painkillers that were prescribed, but only two Advils the first night. I felt soar the next day, like you’ve been in a boxing match, but nothing that can’t be manageable. I saw results from the first time that I took my compression garment off to take a shower (48 hours after surgery,) and cannot wait to see the final result. I recommend this place and this doctor to anyone who is looking for liposuction. I happily will recommend it to all my friends and family.
