Getting plastic surgery in my late 40s was probably the best decision I ever made about my wellbeing. There is nothing that compares to feeling young and more importantly looking young when life has already took its tool on you. I had three children, all grown up now and I was free to do what I wanted with my time and money, so I went in and had a mommy makeover with doctor Cortes. You might think I was a bit old for a mommy makeover, but apparently this was the right procedure for me, as I needed some lipo and some work done both at the tummy and the breasts. I got great results and now I’m a walking, talking advertisement for doctor Cortes!

I need some advice before taking the plunge. I have my surgery scheduled in four days, the hourglass butt augmentation with dr Cortes. The consultation with him was great, but I wanted to ask you how did you feel after the anesthesia and if you did something to feel better immediately after. I have had a bad experience with general anesthesia before, it takes forever to wake up from it and I feel like I was hit by a bus after waking up. I told the dr this and he said everything will be ok and I shouldn’t worry, but I was wondering if any of you guys have experienced something similar and have some advice for me. I will try to eat light the days before the surgery and mostly fresh fruits, avoid fried foods and overly processed foods, alcohol and caffeine, other ideas would be highly appreciated. I will also try to drink plenty of water in the days before, but I don’t know how much this will help.
I am not concerned about the surgery as it is, I have all confidence that dr Cortes will do an amazing job. We talked a lot about the recovery and the results during the consultation and I have been looking at before and after pics of his former patients for months, so I am really ok with him doing the surgery and I trust him completely. It is just this small issue of the general anesthesia. My mom was so scared for me the last time when I had issues waking up and this made a lasting impression on me and now I am a bit scared. Dr Cortes said there won’t be any issues and if it happened once this is no indication that it will happen every time, more than this he ensured me that the anesthesia is done by a board-certified anesthetist and I will be monitored non-stop, so all should be good. I am just thinking if maybe there is something that I could do before the surgery to make sure there are no anesthesia complications. Thanks girls!

In two days I’m having an hourglass tummy tuck with dr Cortes and I’m excited and anxious at the same time, I can’t think of anything else. I spent this week cleaning the house and going grocery shopping and then cooking, and more cleaning, just to keep myself busy. The times seems to go so slow now, it’s crazy. I had the procedure scheduled two months ago, after the first consultation with dr Cortes. It was a hit and run business, as in we hit it off right away and scheduled the surgery when the consultation was done. I kinda knew what to expect in terms of costs and Brianna confirmed that my estimate was correct when she gave me a quote after the consultation with the surgeon. It’s not cheap, I’ll tell you this, but who wants cheap plastic surgery? Really now, all I want is the beautiful hourglass shape and to get rid once and for all of the skin sagginess on the tummy. Dr Cortes said that even some of the stretch marks will disappear with the skin excision, so I am really looking forward to that because I am so sick and tired of those obnoxious stretch marks that make me look like an old zebra. I fell like for the last two years I’ve been postponing everything. Starting with seeing friends and even getting a new pair of jeans or new clothes. Believe it or not, I’m still wearing the maternity jeans, but they are so comfy and they don’t cut into the folds on the tummy which is a big deal for me. I feel that I have spent so much time in leggings and maternity clothes over the last few years that it will be difficult to see myself getting dressed in nice clothes again. But I hope that after the surgery and with new confidence, I’ll get back to the strong, beautiful woman I was before getting pregnant the first time.
I have so much plans for after the surgery, places to go, people to see, I just can’t wait. Dr Cortes told me it will be a few months until making a complete recovery after the surgery, but I am already making plans for a holiday with just my husband, to really enjoy my new body shape. I am so positive and confident that I will look just the way I want and I just want to get it over with the surgery asap ????

When looking for the best surgeon to get an hourglass body or a tummy tuck, dr. Cortes certainly will make the short list for anyone. For me it was the best possible choice that I ever made and now I have the body to prove it. My hips are curvaceous, my waist is very thin and I look much younger than my age, not to mention more sexy too! Everybody is complimenting me now on my look and they can’t believe I have three children. Plastic surgery with dr. Cortes is the best decision ever, if you need it, don’t hesitate, is the best investment in your self. And don’t worry about the recovery and the pain, a few weeks down the line and you won’t remember much about them, just by looking at the beautiful body in the mirror. I recommend dr. Cortes to all women who want to look their best, he is certainly the man.

I am 34 years old, three beautiful daughters and until four days ago a very saggy tummy with distended muscles and lots of skin folds. Pregnancy was not very kind to me, I got my precious babies, but I lost my body in the process. And by lost, I mean like it was completely ruined. The breasts were like half way down the chest, the tummy was hanging over the pubic area, I felt fat and undesirable and so unlike the woman I used to be. And my mother kept telling me than I am a mom now, I shouldn’t be so concerned with my body as it offered me the children I wanted so much. But I couldn’t get over the idea that I want to feel pretty again. I felt so middle age, it was incredible considering the fact that I always took pride in my youthful way of being. But I just didn’t feel that I looked young enough to behave in a youthful manner. I don’t know if it makes a lot of sense, but for me, if I can’t run around the house chasing the daughters because my breasts jiggle up and down and escape the breasts and I constantly need to pull my jeans up as they can’t get to the right position due to fat deposits, I couldn’t pretend I was 14 anymore.
I saw doctor Cortes two and a half months ago, approximately ten months after I gave birth last time. I had a feeling maybe it would be too soon for surgery, but the doctor was cool with it, he asked when did I stop breastfeeding and if I am happy with my weight. My luck was that I only breastfeed for about three weeks with my last as I had an infection and needed to stop breastfeeding while I took antibiotics and then the milk stopped. Doctor Cortes explained that it should be at least six months after pregnancy stops before considering breast surgery. He recommended an hourglass tummy tuck with a wonder breast lift and this is what I got. It wasn’t cheap and it needs to be paid in full before undergoing surgery, but I knew doctor Cortes is the best and he will help me be who I want to be.
Now I am walking with my back bent forward, sleeping on a thousand pillows like a princess from the fairy tales (without the pain). The pain is still intense, I am waiting for it to subside and taking the medication doctor Cortes prescribed. Doctor Cortes changed my life for the better and I am sure I will get the results I desire when the recovery is complete.

It might sound funny, but the one thing that really changed in my life after getting bigger boobs is the quality of sex. I avoided sex for like two months after the surgery because I really wanted to stay away from any complications and I wasn’t feeling too anxious to show off naked breasts when there were still bruises and swelling, but when it happened, I thought wow, so this is how it’s done. And I can tell you for sure it is the boob job that made everything different and not the partner, because the partner has been the same for many many years. I felt playful for the first time, like I could explore and have fun while doing it! My sex life improved a million times over after the boob job and I will tell this to anyone who asks me if the procedure is worth it. For me it was the best thing I did in my life and I don’t regret a single thing about it. I don’t even regret getting it when I did, at 42 years old. Maybe if I would have been younger I wouldn’t have been able to fully appreciate all the changes that it brought to my life. I feel like I got a new lease on life, a new youth period, a new beginning. And the best thing is that I get to enough it with my partner and with my grown kids, which is really fabulous! Also, I’m very happy that I got it when I was done having kids so there is nothing to spoil the results of my intervention later on. Dr. Cortes said all I have to do is watch my weight and avoid significant weight fluctuations and my breasts will look great for much longer compared to women with natural breasts and no plastic surgery. So I didn’t have breasts in my youth, but I will have perky, sexy, hot breasts much longer than my friends who enjoyed them earlier in life and this works just fine for me!
The surgery is surgery, so expect pain and discomfort, also tension in the breasts and a funny looking aspect of the chest until the breasts settle. It is surgery, it is not a new haircut. As long as you are realistic about things, all should be fine. I recommend dr. Cortes because he is a very good surgeon and a very kind personality, very caring about his patients.

What is really impressive about dr. Cortes is his ability to talk to different people and recognize the best course of action even when the body is not in its best shape. I found dr. Cortes in a group on facebook where women were talking about the post-pregnancy body. When I first heard them mention him, I didn’t check things further, but when he kept coming up in different conversations, I just got curious. And now I am so happy that I did. I first checked his facebook profile, then went to the sites and social media. I’ve seen so many pics of amazing transformations for his patients, I knew I have to see him and see what he can say or what he has in store for me. I was so looking forward to a bit of hope of improvement for my body that was making me so disappointed every day. The clothes didn’t fit me well since after the first pregnancy and I so wanted to look good again that I scheduled a consultation with him straight away. I didn’t even know if I had the money, but I knew that I will do my best to get a body like the other patients he had.
Dr. Cortes has been nothing short from a miracle maker in my case. There are still days when neither me or my husband believe that this is how I look now. I had the hourglass tummy tuck with dr. Cortes and now I’m all curves and voluptuous, to the extent that my husband noticed me at a garden party some friends were throwing and said he thought I was the sexiest woman there. This meant the world to me and I am very grateful for dr. Cortes and his talent. I now look the best ever and I am also the happiest I’ve ever been.

I’m day three after my breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Cortes, the pain has subsided and I am feeling more human. It wasn’t simple, I’ll tell you this. The day I got home from the hospital I felt that nothing changed, aside from a feeling of being tired, I felt like I could do things around the house, talked to my hubby without getting too tired or speechless, but once I fell asleep, I woke up in pain and like the first day didn’t existed. I couldn’t find the pills fast enough. In the evenings and at night the pain is worse and it is accentuated by the fact that I can’t sleep on my back at all. My hubby said he’ll get more pillows and arrange them so I will feel better, but he didn’t get a chance to go shopping yet. Other people told me that the pain will last no longer than a week, but right now it feels it will take forever this week.
I’m also worried a bit about the scars, I saw doctor Cortes yesterday and he said everything looks good and there is no sign of infection, this is great news, I thought I was a bit feverish and thought maybe the incisions got infected, but no.
Dr. Cortes was great before the surgery, he gave me lots of confidence that things will be ok. He is the best possible when it comes to patient’s care. So accommodating and kind and friendly and at the same time very professional. Now we have another follow up consultation in a few days, I hope he’ll say everything is ok.
The breasts are really big, I think a bit bigger than I expected, and they feel like rocks at this point. I have a tension sensation in the chest, probably the implants stretching the tissues. At this point is not very comfortable, but Dr. Cortes explained it is only temporary and normal. I’m looking forward to see how it will evolve in time and when the breasts will descend and soften.
I’ll get back to you with how the healing will evolve after this week, wish me luck.

I got an hourglass tummy tuck with breast implants with dr. Cortes and people that see me who haven’t seen me for some time can’t believe it is me. I mean, truth be told, I never looked this good, not even before I had children. The damage that was done during pregnancy was like completely reversed and my body is now my real temple and such a fine looking one! I had the surgery with dr. Cortes about a year and a half ago and it took less than four months for the results to be final, the breasts were a bit hard for a bit, but with daily massages the situation improved considerably in no time. I also had to wear the belt to get the breasts to descend, which was weird and unexpected, but it did the trick and the breasts got softer too in time.

I found Dr. Cortes reading reviews online about the tummy tuck. I saw him performing procedures live and saw most of his videos about the tummy tuck and I couldn’t wait to meet him in person to discuss my procedure. It is such a big difference to see something online and then see how it would apply to your case. I was so thrilled that he is doing the hourglass tummy tuck procedure, this is exactly what I wanted. It’s like a tummy tuck with a twist and it completely changes everything and the image you see in the mirror.
When looking at before and after pics of others who had the procedure I was very careful to check the scars, but Dr. Cortes really has very talented hands, and it is almost impossible to find the scars, especially for lipo and fat transfer. I consider myself lucky to have found him and he accepted to do my surgery. I have diabetes and I was worried that this might be an issue, but the Dr.explainedwhat I need to do and everything went on smoothly during the surgery.
It wasn’t cheap the hourglass tummy tuck, I probably could have had the procedure with someone else for a cheaper cost, but I wanted the best and this is what I got. I think it’s important when treating yourself to go all the way and not stop at little things. The cost aspect was important for me, this is true, but at the office they will explain different payment options and I think it is not difficult for anyone to get the best care for a fair cost.
The hourglass tummy tuck make my hips look crazy hot, now I fell sexier than ever and my husband noticed that I am much more up for fun and games in bed than ever before. He keeps saying that he should send a thank you note to the Dr.!
I’m happy with the results of my tummy tuck and thinking about maybe getting a Brazilian butt too, also with doctor Cortes.

What I can tell you about having a tummy tuck is that the pain is real. Very real, very present and it will hit you after the effects of the general anesthesia is gone. The good news is that if you are having the procedure with Dr. Cortes, he will tell you all about this and prescribe you medication to get over it. He asked me how is my tolerance to pain and I thought is rather good with my two pregnancies and all, but apparently I am not as good with pain as I was when I was younger. The Dr.was so understanding and prescribed new pain medication when I told him I’m still in pain with what he gave me before. It was also my back, really really painful due to all that laying on the back. The new painkillers helped big time, so if you know you are not good with pain, tell him this from the beginning so you don’t have to go through the discomfort.
The tummy tuck is not a very simple procedure to go through. When you see the scars of other patients so small and like fine lines you imagine that this is how you’ll look like the next day after the surgery, but this is just not what happens. My scar seemed so long and red and all the things I feared that I was already asking the Dr. about scar treatments and if I can take it off with laser. But he said this is just a stage, things will get better, etc etc. But the thing is that they did get better. Now I am the happy owner of a fine looking scar that I can easily tuck in my panties if I want to keep it away from prying eyes! Really now, the scar will be the last thing you have to worry if you have surgery with Dr. Cortes. He is very good, so good that he can even make jokes about it!
Thanks, Dr. Cortes, I might be back for more. Next is boobies!

There would be times when I look at my breasts in the mirror and think that maybe my life would have been much different if I would have gotten them sooner, but then I remember the recovery period and think that maybe I couldn’t have dealt with this experience sooner.
I had my boob job in my 30s, after two children and a nasty divorce. Dr. Cortes said a breast lift with implants should do it. We discussed about the size for the implants and I didn’t want something too obvious because I work in a corporation where it is not always advisable to show off the femininity and it would have been difficult to show up at meeting with clients with huge boobs. At the same time, I really wanted something to make me feel feminine and alluring after the disappointment with the marriage and after feeling like being the one with the pants on both at work and at home. I wanted breast implants, but the doctor said the size I have chosen is too small and I need to go up a bit. He did the measurements, he was the doctor, I felt like I need to trust him on this one, but I was overly stressed until the surgery. After the surgery I was stunned and couldn’t believe it. My boobs were huge, exactly what I didn’t want happened. Huge boobs, high on the chest, they couldn’t look any more fake than this. I went and see the doctor and he said this is normal and after they descend it will be better. To be honest, I could barely sleep at night until I saw them becoming softer and lower on the chest.
I was also in pain after the surgery and so worried I’ll have to go through surgery again to replace the implants, I had a real hard time to keep the confidence and trust the doctor that all will be fine. He asked me to give it three months and if I am not happy we’ll discuss the size again. But after the breasts descended and softened everything was fine. I mean they are a bit bigger than I hope for, but I am a big girl and maybe smaller implants wouldn’t have been really visible at all.
The recovery was painful for me and a period in my life that I rather not remember too often. Maybe because I was also so stressed about the final results and my breasts being to big, but it was hard. The breasts look good now and I didn’t have any other complications.

I cannot say I was satisfied or dissatisfied as I am not through the full recovery so I have not seen my final results. I am hoping the areas I see that are troublesome to me are just part of the recovery time. Plus I love the physician assistants but I would think you would see the surgeon more then consult and surgery day.
