I had 3 C-sections and have been wanting a tummy tuck for years. I finally did it. I LOVE it. Dr. Cortes is awesome. I have a beautiful hourglass shape thanks to him. Dr. Cortes is an artist. My navel is perfect and my curves were instantly noticeable. I have a long scar but it is healing nicely. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The post op texts were great and assisted with... more
I had one son 22 years ago. My stomach did not have stretch marks; however, my skin was very stretchable. Therefore, the more I gained over the years, the more the stomach simply filled in with fat. I never could get rid of the lower pouch and the belly button looking like an upside down smile. Also, my muscles feel tighter and my stomach is flat..minus the current swelling. I can't wait... more
I had a tummy tuck and liposuction on 19-June-2015, and I could not be happier with my results! It has only been 25 days and I already feel like a new and better woman. Dr. Bidros is amazing. His professionalism, expertise, and kindness are first class. As busy as his schedule gets, he treated me like I was his only and most important patient. His staff is equally as amazing. I would... more

I have seen and read his reviews and YouTube videos and I can say with comfort that he is the one!!!! more
If you are looking to hire the best, then Dr. Basu is your plastic surgeon. His office staff and nurses provided the best possible care and always made sure every followup visit was helpful and pleasant. Dr. Basu gave me the body that working out in the gym 5 days a week was not able to do. I really made the right choice when I picked Dr. Basu to perform my surgery. more
Well I decided not to review until now. I'm 2 weeks post op as of yesterday and just want to say I have had the BEST experience with Dr. Donna Rich and her wonderful staff. I have no words to describe how awesome they are and how incredibly professional, fun and down to earth they are. Dr. Rich is so laid back and realistic. I'm a nurse so of course we clicked but I told her my concerns and so... more
I had been wanting a tummy tuck for years after having my three boys. The skin and fat in the belly area hung over my pants and I never wanted to even put clothes on and go anywhere in public. After my consultation with Dr. Cash, I knew she was the one. Both her and her staff made me feel comfortable.
the day after my procedure I looked at my belly and it was HISTORY! GONE! Even with all of... more
I lost 100lbs on my own with diet and exercise which was awesome but left me with a huge apron. No amount of sit ups or ab workout helped.
Finally decided to visit PS after 3 consultations Dr. Pisarski was my final consult May 12,2015. Husband and i felt really comfortable with Dr.Pisarski that we immediately booked for surgery June 16,2015. All our questions and concerns were answered never... more
Feeling a little deformed. My upper abdomen is fatter than lower. Paid for upper liposuction but I don't think it was performed. My scar is low and is well hidden with underwear. I should have done more research and looked at more reviews. I have not came across another doctor yet on reslself with as many negative reviews as Dr. Cortes. more

I got my surgey done at the Baylor residency program. I have no complaints about my surgery right now. My incision is not painful but my MR is killing me. All I have is Tylenol 3 for pain. Also I have a muscle relaxer. I feel like I could use something stronger. I am starting to itch. Don't know if that's because anesthesia is wearing off of what.
I was told to wear my CG 24/7 for a month.... more
Dr. Hsu has been nothing short of amazing through my whole experience from start to finish. He has been on top of his communication, if I ever have a question, he is available and I get an immediate answer back, especially with my emails. He is super comforting and he sets realistic expectations. I'm a week post op and I couldn't be happier with my decision to use him as my surgeon.
I had... more
Two months ago I did a consultation via email. After viewing my pics Lucy sent me a quote of $17k for an hourglass tummy tuck, breast implants removal & breast lift (mommy makeover). Dr Cortes base fee was 13k. After dealing with the financing company I was advised that I would have to physically go in for a consult.
I traveled 4 hours to Houston...no problem. Waiter an hour and a half to see... more

Basically I am completely exhausted with this belly. I have had it to the moon and back. After three c-sections being cut two different ways my stomach looks awful, not to mention extremely heavy. I feel like I'm carrying around an extra 10lbs. I am looking forward to the flat side. I think it will enhance my appearance and boost my confidence. I'm scared yet anxious. I have a consultation... more

You will not regret choosing Dr. Basu & his highly trained staff. During My consultation I could feel his passion for his profession. He knows exactly what it takes to sculpt a body. Dr. Basu is very knowledgeable and honest. He and his coordinator help put all fear and anxiety that I had about the procedures to rest. The quality of my care before and after surgery was great. Everyone at this... more
Dr Basu was fantastic and I'm very pleased thus far! 2 days post op, I have had some pain, but I have a very low tolerance for pain. April, Linnea, and Katherine are all so easy to work with and they go above and beyond to make the patient comfortable. The experal that is used for the muscle repair works wonders so my belly just feels like I've done a lot of sit-ups. The lipo is the most painful. more
