5 out of 5 stars Botox

May Dr. Cortez never retire!!!

Dr. Cortez is nothing but a caring and professional physician who has kept me young looking for the last 25 years! I've had filler, botox and even my eyes/forehead done with amazing results. I go for a monthly peel and look forward to each visit.

It's Still Me Only Better!!! - Overland Park, KS

I have been going to Dr. Cortez for several years for peels and Botox. Through the normal aging process, I began to feel like I looked older than I felt. I approached Dr. Cortez about a lift and he suggested a lower face list. I already knew Dr. Cortez was the best in town; notably one of the best facial plastic surgeons in the country. If anyone was going to do surgery on my face, it was...

60 Year Old Wanting to Age Gracefully - Overland Park, KS

There is no one better than Dr. Eddie Cortez. I first contacted him about a facelift in 2008 and since then, I have seen him for Botox, fillers, peels and skin care. The results are always very natural and no one has ever suspected that I have “had work done.” I love it when someone is surprised that I am as old as I am or when I receive compliments about my skin. Thank you, Dr. Cortez...

I Am an Old Person but Really Fun. It Has Done Wonders for Me and my Face. - Overland Park, KS

My motivation is a bit private. The results are super. When I am at the office I feel I am in very capable hands, and honest evaluation of the process. His approach is to look natural. The staff is accommodating, helpful, pleasant and informed. I am an artist and the visual of what is achieved is important. I do wish botox lasted longer.

67 Year Old Female... - Overland Park, KS

Dr. Cortez has been my plastic surgeon for 15 years. He performed a brow lift, and upper and lower eyelid surgery on me. Additionally, I receive regular botox injections from Dr. Cortez. Even with the invasive brow and eyelid surgery, I experienced absolutely no pain or bruising following the surgery. He is the best there is as far as I am concerned. We are so fortunate to have a plastic...

Deep Furrowing in Brow and Facial Skin Sagging - Leawood, KS

Motivation: As a sales manager for a large corporation, I had many peers and customers that are much younger than my 50 years. I wanted to maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. After a consultation with Dr. Cortez, we decided that a facelift was the right solution for me. It worked.....The first day I returned to work, one of my sales rep said, "I can tell this vacation really...

Facelift and Facial Maintanance Five Stars ***** - Overland Park, KS

I originally came to Doctor Cortez in 2001 to fix another Doctors failed attempt. I have never looked back. Doctor Cortez and his entire office staff are exceptional. The Doctor is a perfectionist...but that is what you want when your face is involved. My goal was to look like me, but younger and better. I did NOT want to look like I had had a facelift. My friends still have no idea ...it...

Female - Overland Park, KS

I first sought out Dr. Cortez for monthly light peels. I had begun to understand there was value in effective skin care. I instantly noticed that my fine lines looked softer and my skin just glowed. Furthermore, I realized that these peels were, in fact, promoting healthier skin. Soon I decided I didn't like the wrinkles in my forehead and those deeper lines around my eyes. So I began...
