To give myself a second chance! To look in the mirror and feel good and go to the gym and not be the fat girl...

Pro he was reasonable price, very understanding...

Pro he was reasonable price, very understanding and knowledgable.

Con..NONE! he was awesome.

Advise- The first two weeks was hard after that it is easy. Do everything before the surgery, Get grocery's, all your laudary, personnel things shave, nails, dye hair ect. cause for 2 weeks you wont be able to do it.

Do you have any before and after pics? I am looking to get this done in the summer I am currently trying to find a good doctor in TX.

I copy and paste this reply to a email. Please excuse the spelling. It was a late night! I can send you pic and you will see how great his work is. I had a flabby tummy and no butt. I was at a stage that i needed change been to the gym for years no great result. So i went to Dr Cortez. My waist was 38 hip 44. (yeah i know 155 lbs i thought i was still slim lol) after the surgery the pain was tough but you need a little help for about 5 days then its good not too bad. Its a year and i'll do it all over if i had to. My waist 3 months after was 26 i got a little gready and for the 6 mth so period i felt like i could eat anything because i was small (do do that you could ruim all the results) and it's ok. well i jumped up in weight (158) and my waist was 28. i worked out after the feeding lol for a month to stabliize and now i have a 27 inch before bed waist so it varies 25 to 28 depending on my gread lol. oh my hip now is 38 but i am really curvy. 32d bra natural, 27 waist and 38 hip. it looks perfect hourglass cause the bust is big. I look great physically but mentally better self. Weight wise after the surgery i was only 148 cause all the fat was place back in the butt....I never got down in weight on the scale but i am more muscular and fit now with a clean diet and exercise i am 145. I like it cause hubby is 6'2 and muscular. About the hubby he love the change both physical and mental i got him to see Dr cortez a few days ago and he is going in on dec 6 for lipo and body shaping. He has a great body but a tummy and love handles and a little man chest lol. He works out 6 days a week 2 hrs a day avg and now decided to (cheat) lol cause it is so hard. I would do it again. had no side effects some pain but the pain killers worked wonders. the first 5 days i wanted to die but after that it was ok and managable. I have no job by choice so recovery was easy since my boy was only 4 it was not bad with school and after activities we keep him busy to easy up on the trama of seeing me "sick". Sorry about the book you just caught me at a good time when i could spend a bit of time replying you. I am not editing so sorry about the spelling and writing. Again i love the results and Dr Cortez was super, he was kind and listen to me after the surgery. Anytime i need to see him he made the effort to call me or schedule to see me. I now go to him for chem peel micro/der and lazar. his price is good especially his specials for the face services. if you need new pic i can send you some. your question long term i'll do it over in a heart beat even knowing the pain the results is amazing. No one from seaing me today can tell i had surgery i look natural and because i am a little heavy 145lbs 5'4" It looks like i was born lucky! Let me know if you want any other info feel free to let me know! But the benifit is so good. You can tell by my above book lol. Good Luck and please let me know since hubby is going in Dec i would love the feedback. Thanks Goodluck enjoy the journey. (don't go crazy eating after recovery that that really serious cause tons of people think they can and gain every inch back and some more.) Be dedicated after to working out and eating somewhat clean. If it is one thing you take away take this away. I wish i knew this ahead. You need to take this so serious trust me cause it can creep up if you feel its just ok to munch a bit more cause you have great "inch" don't. Eat cleanish and workout find a goal weight and inch size and DON'T CROSS IT. REALLY TAKE THIS ADVISE. Sorry but good luck and have fun doing it. Please update!!!!!!!!
