Dr. Cortes....I Have to Gain Weight and I Already Feel Fat! -Houston, tx

So I have had 2 babies by c section and I am finished. I want my body to myself and I want to feel great in it. I want something I never had before (A BUTT). This idea came to me a few months ago after I had my last child and I haven't let it go so I am going for it! I was told that I will have to gain 10 pounds for the best results. I am going to feel bad doing it but I know it's for a goal and I always try my best to attain goals! Dr. Cortez was very very (did I say very?) nice! I was comfortable with him and now confident that I will let him do my procedure. I paid a 500 dollar deposit along with a 45 dollar consult fee. My quote was 9503. I was looking for a lower number but I will share pictures with everyone next month and you tell me if it was worth it! Excited, nervous, and anxious!!!

So just an update on my experiences with Dr....

So just an update on my experiences with Dr. Cortes and his staff. They are still beautiful people I am just very anxious. I had my before picture taken on the 20th at my new weight of 156 and I felt so fat doing it. I was told it would be great if I could gain 5 more pounds so I guess I have to work harder because I lost 2 pounds since the 20th and I don't know how; so I have to gain 6 within a couple weeks. Any tips on how to keep fat on because obviously just eating a tremendous amount of food like I have been is beginning to fail me.

I am done!! Now I can't wait to heal!

I have to be honest so everyone knows what they are getting into. The procedure hurts right after and sleeping and laying on your belly sucks initially. Today makes day 3 and I'm starting to feel a lot better so don't be discouraged or sad about your decision because day 3 makes a world of difference . Even tho the swelling is ugly and uncomfortable I can still see where my body is heading after all the water and bruising is gone.

I had my follow up yesterday and that nasty tube taken out. Being in this new girdle makes me feel better its just not long enough so the bottom of my legs swell like crazy. I did read that herbal diuretics helps with water so I'm going to try that ASAP!
