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.

I feel like crap

these are my before pics,, after gaining 15 lbs,, I need a miracle

good massage therapist

I need a good massage therapist and good hotel!!

a little nervous

I sure hope I can get the results I want, haven't seen a whole lot if women shaped like me on here,,

time is ticking!!

4 weeks until my surgery,, I'm so ready this gaining weight is killing me!!

some pictures


not bad




some girls wanted to see what I look like I am okay with showing my face


14 days!!!

the days are passing so quickly, today marks my 2 week mark, I'm anxious and a little scared seeing these ladies go through this pain. I started talking my heal me supplements,I just pray this will help with the healing process, my hotel is booked and all my supplies are packed and ready to go,,

Last night

Well tonight is the last night i will be my old self...Surgery tomorrow,,i am ready to be on the other side....The whole healing process scares me, but no pain no gain. I have gianed 30lbs for this surgery, And i feel like shit..i have never been this big before even when i was pregnant....I am so ready to get this fat in the right place...


I'm still really stiff,, sorry I haven't updated just been focusing on healing

Feeling emotional

Today was a hard day for me..i was so emotional cried over nothing..I don't do drama...and some people live for it,,anyways my healing is coming along my butt is actually starting to soften up already...I don't know if this is normal or not..I truly hope my butt goes down a little..its a little big for my liking..but i will see how it is in a couple weeks..Thank you ladies for all your support.

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.

Glad your feeling better like u I had to gain weight I've gained 10lbs and I feel like s!#t. I can't wait for him to vacuum the fat out. I feel so nasty I've never been this heavy. I hate the way this extra fat makes me feel. I have another 90 days before I can feel like myself. So glad to know I'm not the only one who feel like crap when they gained weight.

And did he remove 30lbs?
  • Reply
So after sur get you was 11lbs lighter?

I felt like crap for a long time
  • Reply
he can't remove thirty pounds it's too dangerous to remove more than 11lbs
  • Reply
So I guess he probably shouldn't have to me to gain 10-15 pounds I won't be anywhere near my ideal weight. I'm 195 now so after surgery I'll be 189ish that's to much weight I'm most comfortable at 170.

I thought I would feel gross I'm 185 and I'm happy so gaining the weight was worth it.
