31 Year Old Mother of Three - Houston, TX

I have never turned to surgery for anything but.....

I have never turned to surgery for anything but...I have been unhappy with my figure since god knows how long. I have an interverted triangle shape. No hips and really broad. I did my research for about a year. I found Dr. Cortes, my surgery is coming up soon. I would really like to get feed back on how the recovery and results are, I have seen quite a bit of before and after pics which i was really impressed, but none of a woman with my body structure. I am reassured that my body type is okay. Just that i have to gain another 15lbs.
Good luck doll

I think your the perfect weight for your upcoming surgery. I had gained an extra 15 lbs approximately for my bbl and butt implants.

good massage therapist

I need a good massage therapist and good hotel!!
The best hotel to stay at is the La Quinta Inn in Conroe. It's near Dr.Corte's office so he will come to see you at your hotel after your surgery if you stay there. Mariel gave me a full list of massage therapist's so ask her and she will give it to you or just private message me and i will send you that list.

I like them a lot. I don't even know they are there half the time lol. My butt is still very hard since I am only 9 weeks post op. They should soften up within a month or two.

Me too I've been studying for a test I have tonight thinking about how I'm gonna work out the whole not sitting down thing lol.. I booked my room at Americas best value inn across from the hospital for my stay. I could of picked somewhere else but I wanted quick hospital access lol . So glad I've got 2weeks left then surgery time. Then I'm off for 3weeks . I'm honestly thinking omg is having a great body worth all the pain n discomfort . I guess I can't turn back now it's already paid in full . Well I could get a TT . Idk my mind is all over right now . Even if I got just a TT I still wouldn't be happy wit my flat butt.

What did you weight after? And did you loss any more weight after thst. I just don't want to loss weight in my booty. That's the first place where I lose fat first.

3 months post

Well i am looking for a good doctor for a mommy makeover..any suggestions
Your butt looks great. He definitely didn't add that much fat to my booty and we were VERY similar in size. Congrats on the booty. How's your stomach? You dont have any photos of your tummy. Did he flatten it out?
Reply
Nope it looks horrible

You look very good hun. Cortes is the best there is period.

That's how he left mine. :( he's a terrible person for taking our money which includes full stomach, then not do it at all and leaving it all half assed.

Reply
:) good idea. I wish you a beautiful makeover.

Im so sorry to see that you many any other girls, including myself, have been treated this way!!! I live in Houston myself and didnt want to travel out of state. When i found out there was a good PS here in houston to do the BBL I was so happy and I watched almost all his videos and read his Q&A's. From the beginning I didnt like his attitude and that was just watching from the videos. When I would see him for consultations he still had this cockyness to him but I felt he knew what he was doing and has been doing it for a while. I wish I would have went else where. We werent given his all and I cant believe he would allow this to happen. Honestly think he rushed. As most girls he worked on it took him 3 hours. How, if we are all different shapes and sizes? Why rush causing burns? I was fortunate not to get burns but my stomach is so stupid looking. I truly hope u and may others find peace within them selves and are able to move on and hopefully on day get to get a revision done by a different dr!!!

Oh and btw, I do love that your booty came out good. I almost feel the same about mine but since he didnt lipo me good, I dont get the same projection as you do and my legs he left them to thick when I told him in front of my mom to take a lot out. He didnt want to but I asked him to and he said he would.
