I am only 14 days post op. I had a full tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction of upper tummy, flanks, hips, lower and side of breast and back (or sides of breast). Fat grafting to my lower tights. So far, I can see the difference on my waist line (smaller, more define). But not sure of all else, don't see result yet.

I am 5 weeks post op for a full tummy tuck, lipo, breast lift and hip fat transfer. I am still in the early stages of recuperating... I have a THOUSAND! questions, concerns and Dr. Cortes answers my questions and put my concerns at ease. Never seems upset or rushed! I still have a long way to go!

I am 6 weeks post op tomorrow Friday, Sept 1st. However, I am not a happy camper. I expected more and I don't think my expectations were too far out. I expected to have a flatter stomach. I expected my boobs to look similar to each other as they did before. I expected the breast to have similar scarring and heal in a similar way, this is not happening. My breasts are completely different from each other! My stomach is thick! and bulging. I am still dealing with the swell hell period of plastic surgery! I think I have a persistent seroma. I have to wear an extremely tight and therefore painful girdle 24 hours a day! So, at this point in my long and painful recovery I would say NO! I would not do it again and YES! I regret spending so much money on this. I look good in my clothes when I wear my girdle, but, guess what, if wearing a girdle was no problem, I would have looked just as great wearing before the surgery, and it would have been much cheaper! I am so extremely depress. My PS keeps telling me I have to be patient. I wish I could go to sleep and wake up in a year! I do a lot of research and lots of women with my problem require a revision! I don't have the money, nor do I want to go through this recovery HELL again! So... do I have to live with this, worst than before, body? That's sucks and that IS depressing! I wish I could stop worrying and thinking about the worst possible scenario, but, I can't. One good thing about the surgery... I have a waist and some nicer hips! and my belly button looks amazing!!! ;-) I hope when I update this again I feel COMPLETELY different than I do today. ;-(

1 year later, DEPRESS and looking for a REVISION surgeon!

It has been an entire year since my surgery. You know? that time when they tell you that you finally see your FINAL results!! WEll, how depressing is that??? Since the beginning I saw my results were less than optimal, as weeks, months passed by I voiced my concerns. My doctor was NOT supportive... called me fat, made me feel like I was crazy for complaining and bringing things to his attention! He kept telling me ALL was GOOD!!! I just needed to let time heal... well, time made things worst! and yes... I gained a whole 10 pounds in 1 year... honestly, DEPRESSION! I am looking for a good reputable doctor to fix this guy's mistakes and paying double what I paid to get it in the first place! I am so disappointed and scared because I truly believe my original doctor would do a good job! He had GREAT!!! reviews! So, what the heck happened with me? He was plain nasty! every time I voiced concerns. Looking back, his office looked more like an emergency room, long waits, there so many people at times there no chairs to sit down... but, I didn't see that before my surgery..that should have been a red flag! I have added some pictures.. let the pictures talk for themselves about the quality of work Dr. Wilberto Cortes performed on me.

1.8 months post op

This is from a revision evaluation. Here are the final results of my breast lift.

1 year, 8 months

Houston Plastic Surgeon

Unfortunately, i have to retreat my original reviews which I wrote BEFORE the surgery. Because before the surgery, Dr. Cortes was extremely responsive. After the surgery, from calling me a complainer to telling me I was fat (though I had only gained 5 pounds, he told me I had excessive weight gained when I verbalize my unhappiness with the results. He also kept telling me my breast were fine, perfect, the results of my tummy tuck were perfect and made me feel like I was just complaining for no reason. I will let the photos on my profile speak for themselves! He revise my left nipple (charged me for it too!) and I wish I would have left it the way it was, weird shaped. Now it is just DEFORMED! Again, let the pictures speak for themselves. Perhaps he had a bad day on the day of my surgery.... but, my revision too????!!!
